If what is being reported is to be believed, she is also the chosen designer for William and Kate's Kensington Palace apartment. What a great assignment! I can only imagine the world of nursery decor she would be exposed to while working for the royal family.
I've done a little research on high end nurseries, and I can tell you it's been a real eye opener for little old me down here on the east coast of Canada!
Today, I want to share some very posh items and room ideas I've come upon and tomorrow, I will begin to share my own moodboards and color schemes that I have come up with.
Some of the following items will be completely over the top (OTT) and some so expensive that only the likes of Beyonce and Jay-Z could afford to indulge.
Speaking of Jay-Z and Beyonce, let's start with a show of some of the items they have bought for Blue Ivy........
How about a $5,000 baby bathtub covered in swarovski crystals?
Then there is the $600,000 solid gold rocking horse.
Oh, and let's not forget the $15,000 swarovski crystal encrusted Carla Monchen highchair.
And then there's the $20,000 hand made, custom crib from Poshtots.
You get the picture - when money is no object, you can be OTT.........and drip with bling!!
Then, there is really beautiful classic furniture that will last a lifetime and remain in a family's home for generations to come, such as the following:
A gorgeous baby armoire from Art for Kids
A very traditional crib from Poshtots - $8,000
And we must consider the decorating styles to choose from - will it be English country, traditional, shabby chic, modern............look at a few of the different styles below:
A nicely outfitted, traditional nursery from Art for Kids.
An antique ivory collection would work well in the palace and I could see Kate going with something like this! Very neutral and traditional.
A more spacious nursery with room to play....very traditional.
How about shabby chic? All white and pink with roses?
This looks like a palace bedroom, but the very low bassinet isn't really practical and even the cradle seems low.
And one more totally decadent, but exquisite piece.
This is so decadent! For £7,000 you can have this beautiful bassinet with swarovski crystals on the antique lace skirt. From Dragon's of London.
Now that you've had a taste of the possibilities out there, what do you think Kate would choose? Will it be a unisex nursery with neutral tones, a girl's, a boy's, light furniture or dark furniture? We may never, ever get a glimpse of the completed royal nursery, but, in the meantime, we can imagine.
I have a feeling the royal nursery will be elegant and low key with very soft tones. Tomorrow, I will show you a very delicate pink and ivory moodboard.
