Noble nurseries fit for royalty

You would have to have vacated to Mars to have missed the imminent and much anticipated arrival of Wills and Kate’s Royal baby this July. Along with the potential gender, names and fortunes for the new heir to the throne, the pressure is also on for this little prodigy to have a nursery fit for the most prestigious of babes. Whether the heir, or your new born, is a beautiful girl in need of some frill and fancy or a funky little fella wanting a more contemporary statement this is my run down of the most inspirational and unique nursery designs for 2013:

Animal cutouts using different patterned paper, stuck to a nursery wall, with bay playing on the floor

A beautiful nursery for any queen of the jungle; I love the collaboration of the funky animal silhouettes with vintage floral and polka dot patterns. Nurseries and children’s bedrooms are the perfect opportunity to be braver with your use of pattern and colour as this will add a childish and fun element to their rooms. To keep a sophistication and femininity to this room the pretty and simple white furniture works particularly well and sits to complement not clash with the more busy areas of the design.

North Pole themed nursery, with white rug, polar bear, a lost penguin and light blue Igloo curtains

This is a perfect example of how to create a fun and childish yet gentile and cosy nursery for your little man; offering aspirational, contemporary design and charming character in one. I love this fabulous Leander Baby Cradle which fits perfectly with the cute polar theme. The addition of chunky knit poufs and the fur throw soften this room a treat.

Creamy beige nursery with autumnal pom-poms above a cot

For a pretty princess I love this pom-pom feature in shades of peach and grey. These soft pastel tones are perfect for nurseries whilst the addition of grey helps maintain a sophisticated edge. The ornate cot definitely adds a level of elegance, and with the addition of bunting, gives a lovely vintage twist.

Beige nursery with a white outline of the world map on the wall, plus aeroplane and boat

The heir to throne is destined to travel and this simplified world map mural is a great starting point for a baby’s nursery of either gender. The warm taupe shade gives this room a modern yet cosy vibe and the addition of raspberry gives it a funky, more childish lift. Also take note of the great accessories including the vintage style aeroplane toy and wooden tripod lamp.

Wooden Moon cot with fairy lights as stars and paper cut out clouds hanging from the ceiling

For the more understated or smaller scale nurseries I love this dreamy stars and moon nursery design. The rocking moon cot is just adorable and works particularly well with the addition of fairy lights, fur and the cute cloud mobile overhead. It is a perfect illustration of a magical yet simplistic nursery for babies destined for the stars.

Black and white city themed nursery, with skyscraper wall art and a play police car on the floor

For a more retro royal this monochrome nursery is a fabulous contemporary design. This cityscape wallpaper works fabulously with the modern cot and side table. Furthermore, as this little city slicker grows, this design can be easily adapted for the older toddler or child.

Contemporary light pink nursery with white metal cot bed

Perhaps more fitting for the architectural style of the Windsor family’s property portfolio; this nursery offers a traditional yet beautiful princess palace. The soft colours offer an elegance perfectly complemented by the romantic shutters to the window, plush goblet curtains and ornate furniture. Brown nursery with knitted lampshade in brown, grey, light green and yellow Cute yet contemporary; I love these quirky knitted umbrella lampshades suspended over the new arrival. Whether merely decorative or practical the effect of grouping a collection of these shades is really effective and works particularly well in front of the grey wall. For a more straight forward solution have a look for a contemporary mobile to suspend over the cot instead. Eclectic cream nursery with wooden storage units and creative artwork on the walls Known as the more alternative royal generation, Wills and Kate may opt for a more quirky and eclectic feel for their nursery. These nostalgic Crayola prints work as great back drop and more easily complement the various colours of babies’ toys unlike some of the more high-design alternatives. I also love the quirky mix of furniture within this design, and in particular, the addition of the design classic; the Eames rocking chair.

Girls grey and pink nursery with white and grey trees on the walls and a pink doily like rug

Make sure any little lady starts off on the right foot with this sassy nursery design. Using a traditional nursery rhyme in this contemporary context works great and the simple use of grey, baby pink and white gives it a real playful yet stylish feel. Available online; vinyl stickers used for the wall decoration are a great and affordable way to get creative in your children’s rooms.

Minimalist white nursery with macrame like hanging cot

Kate is known for her understated sophistication and I think this nursery design offers a great feminine yet casual feel for a princess’ parlour. Mixing chunky knits and ethnic inspired cushions in these muted tones works really well and offers a bohemian twist on the usual approach to creating a soft, feminine nursery. Cream and beige striped nursery with America map on the door, large letter K in red on the wall and large stuffed and free standing Giraffe teddy The royal baby will have to get used to seeing their name in lights and this funky design offers a bright and playful room for this little star. The bold use of patterns in a few simple colours works brilliantly and the addition of the fabulous light up K and giant giraffe give this room great drama and character.
