I love everything about this space, from the grand scale to the fine architectural detail. The bits of pink certainly help with my princess fantasy, too.
This bedroom is just perfect for the modern-day grownup princess. It's got the canopy, it's got the pastel...and it's got Janis Joplin on the wall, wrapped in a boa. That tiny bit of edge makes all the difference.
No, it's not a traditional castle, but this lovely Victorian is as elaborate as any 5-year-old princess's birthday cake.
This space, with its high ceilings, impressive chandelier and delicate wall painting, is quite majestic.
I love this sweeping, dramatic stairway and how it works with a very traditional baby grand piano.
But I also love the way a dramatic stairway works with more modern trappings, like the wall artwork and chunky wood table.
This fireplace reminds me of something that might be found in a bedroom at a castle—complete with sunburst artwork.
This room took my breath away—it's like a jade green version of Billy Baldwin and Diana Vreeland's "Garden in Hell." The walls make such a strong statement that only someone with a queen-like personality could host a dinner in there.
When I think modern-day castle, I often think of black and white checkerboard floors. They're so sophisticated and timeless. For the updated castle, though, I like these funky painted wooden floors. Like the girly bedroom overseen by Janis above, these floors give the space just a little hipster edge.
