Royal Inspired Nursery Details

Last week it was reported that the new royal family of three would soon be moving into their new home at Kensington Palace.  A 20-room “apartment” that was completely overhauled, the couple’s new home features three kitchens, a panic room, his-and-hers bathrooms, and of course, a shiny new nursery for baby George.  I personally can’t wait to see George’s room in particular, and find out how Kate put her personal touches on it.  Since they’re said to be a more modern royal couple, I’m sure it will be a nice blend of heritage antiques and updated touches.  Here are just a few details that I think we may find in the baby’s room, and some inspiration for how you can add simple “royal” touches to your own baby’s room.

  • Ornate Details & Luxurious Fabrics

    This real life nursery is very much fit for a prince. With luxurious fabric details, custom draperies, ornate furniture, gorgeous moldings, and nice soft colors, it gives a very soothing yet sophisticated feel. While I’m not sure Prince George’s room will be so traditional, or have a bit more whimsy to it, either way, this nursery offers up many inspiring details.

  • Antique and Vintage Furniture

    Adding in some vintage and antique furniture pieces, either passed down through the family or picked up at a garage sale, is an easy and affordable way to add a bit of a royal feel. A fresh coat of paint and new fabric is a quick fix that may be plaguing older furniture, and makes it truly your own.

    Soft subtle touches of gold, especially against very light colors such as white and beige, really set the space off and add a bit of understated glam, appropriate for a baby’s room.

  • Muted Colors & Subtle Artwork

    I love this room so much, and could see this being the type of playfully refined details Kate incorporates into her baby’s room. Really soft, tonal colors, and artwork that is so subtle, it makes a statement without being overpowering.

    An image of a Jenny Lind crib makes me think of a wide array of spaces and designs, from farmhouse vintage to even English countryside. It’s a classic style that adds personality and beauty to any type of nursery.

  • Ornate Moldings

    Chair rails, crown moldings and detailed base boards are very beautiful and give the perfect royal-inspired touch to any nursery. You can hire it out or even do it yourself, it’s a weekend project that makes a big impact.

  • Printed Wallpaper

    Make a bold statement in a baby’s room with printed wallpaper on an accent wall. There are so many patterns available nowadays you can pick subtle and refined or elegant and luxurious.

  • Charming Antique and Vintage Details

    If you don’t have access to antique heirloom furniture, even simple and sweet touches via toys and framed art adds just a subtle hint of old world heritage. This antique rocking horse is a perfect touch to add just a bit of history and charm to an otherwise very updated and modern nursery.
