Flower-Box Inspiration

A forest-green bed crown is the perfect addition to this pastel-pink girls' bedroom. "This bed crown was inspired by my love of window boxes, and by turning one upside down I found it made a great form for a bed crown," Shoshana Gosselin says. Get the look by covering a window box in fabric lining, attaching fabric with hot glue and adding a fun fabric to the bottom for embellishment. Tip: To hide a seam and cover any flaws, use fabric ribbon or bows as a colorful (and functional) adornment.

Elegant Neutrality

This monochrome, cream bedroom takes adult elegance to a whole new level. Designer Brooke Giannetti wanted to add a touch of drama to the tone-on-tone cream palette through the bed crown without leaving the overall color scheme. "We added interest by using different patterns and combining silk damask with velvet," she says. "Large tassel tiebacks and a pretty rope trim add beautiful detailing."

She used neutral hues and elegant, European-inspired toile fabric for her cornice-board creation. This type of bed crown is easy to make and can dress up any bedroom. "One can be made by simply stapling gathered fabric to a board and mounting it to the ceiling," Marian says.
