Fit For A Royal Baby: Nursery Design



If you haven’t heard the news yet, the royal baby has made his grand debut.

To mark the occasion (and because we LOVE all things baby, nurseries, & the Royal family) I am showcasing my interpretation of the Royal Nursery:

The space takes into consideration the grand architectural details of royal estates; Buckingham Palace, Windsor’s Frogmore Cottage, and Kensington Palace’s Apartment 1A:

  • crown moldings

  • extensive wallpaper

  • brass finishes

  • opulent upholsteries

  • luxe chandeliers

I envision an updated, monochromatic palette combined with textural elements and is much more reflective of the couple’s personalities. Meghan’s relaxed yet refined personal style comes through in the overall color palette and natural details as seen in the woven basket, rafia-wrapped dresser and bamboo shades layered with linen draperies. Taking note from Harry’s classic style, combined with a touch of nostalgia for his own childhood nursery, Windsor wallpaper, the English roll-arm glider and spindle crib easily transcend trends.

Many of the key elements in the space, such as the artwork and textile layers can be swapped out as the child grows and his needs change. One element that both prospective parents and non-parents alike can take note of is that wallpaper is here to stay after being exiled to the decades of our childhood.



Hopefully us non-royals can appreciate the polished nature of the nursery while taking inspiration from the feel of the space. Although they haven’t stepped out with their son yet, I am anxious to see official photos of the little love, and see more amazing nursery details in the coming months.

If you have a little love on the way, royal or non-royal, and this design speaks to you, let's connect!

Warmly,
