With the birth of Princess Charlotte just this week, Royal Baby fever has been incredibly high both online and off! It is known that the Royal Couple will spend their next few weeks in Kensington Palace, but will soon be moving up to their 10 bedroom Norfolk mansion on the Queen’s 20 000 acre Sandringham estate, the perfect place to raise royal children.
With an estimated £1.5 million spent on refurbishment and interiors, it is guaranteed that the building will respect late Georgian architecture and landscaping traits. With the help of Ben Pentreath, currently one of the hottest interior designers on the market, the royal couple’s abode is guaranteed to set a standard and reference to the design world.
Currently, no information or footage on the refurbishment has surfaced on any media platform, but many design lovers, decoration heads and royal family aficcionados will be wondering what Mr Pentreath, who has done previous work for Prince Charles, Liv Tyler and Sarah Jessica Parker, along with the Windsor and Middleton families, have in reserve for the mansion’s newest division, the royal nursery.
As there is little else the internet and journalists can do, other than speculate, here is a list of tips and suggestions to add a little royalty to your newborn’s bedroom:
Before planning what furniture, textiles and paint scheme to include in a royal nursery, it is important to pick a colour scheme, and to stick to it. Then, textiles, paint and other decorative elements should be appropriately selected within the pre-defined colour scheme. Next, it is time to select bedroom furniture, bearing in mind that these pieces can be adapted to fit the given textiles, and colour scheme.
Wall crowns are a fundamental element in any royal nursery. Not only do they bring an aristocratic feel to the room, they can also be highly practical, serving as either a support for a cannopy, or even as a light mount. It is important to remember, however, that a wall crown should be mounted high enough from a child’s reach.
Wallpaper has made a big comeback to interiors and decorations, and is a quintessential element in many British households. There are several appropriate patterns for a royal bedroom, but it is important to remember to stick to pale tones, and holdback from abusive use of bright colours and gold tints.
Monograms are very aristocratic marks, and bring character to the bedroom when mounted on a wall, or on the back of a chair. Pairing them with a coat of arms adds the final royal touch.
