After looking at all the chicness that is in The Big Book of Chic, I decided cornice boards are the most fabulous way to dress a window. It took me a little longer than I expected to look at every single page of the book – but that’s why Miles named it The BIG Book of Chic instead of The Little Book of Chic.
I think a cornice board is a little too formal for my apartment right now, but maybe one day one of my many houses will feature some over the top cornice boards ;)
Miles Redd knows how to design fabulous cornice boards. And I found evidence that other designers do too. I can’t think of a more fabulous way to dress a window, can you?
By the way, the pictures now link the their sources. I’m so high tech :)
Absolutely love all the green!!!

That shape – LOVE
The cornice board is bigger than the window.
Some cornices don’t serve a purpose – they’re like jewelry for a window :)
So sweet for a little girls room
Love the contrast of the printed fabric and the solid Ivory fabric and tape trim…
I know you’ve probably seen this picture a thousand times before, but it needed to be in my “Cornice Boards” post [Elizabeth Dinkel via Veranda]
Miles Redd… of course. And yes, that is a closet.
Simple, white, shaped cornice boards. You almost don’t even notice them. The first thing I noticed was that cool light fixture. And the black & white abstract art over the mantle.
If you like turquoise…
And speaking of unique shapes! LOVE this eye candy. Miles Redd.
