Inside a royal nursery: what William and Kate's special baby room is likely to look like
With the Duchess of Cambridge's July due date fast approaching and the parents-to-be putting the finishing touches on their new arrival's nursery, award-winning architectural interior designers Oliver Burns have put together adorable sketches of how the special room for William and Kate's newborn royal baby may look.
These designs, incorporating only the finest of products for the royal baby, include a chandelier by French designer Philippe Starck, a stylish yet comfortable nursing chair and an antique cot.
Personal touches have also been added, such as a handcrafted rocking horse designed especially for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and framed photographs of the family, including shots of dad-to-be William with his brother Prince Harry and their late mother Princess Diana.
The arrival of William and Kate's first child - due in July - is fast approaching. It is believed that the couple are getting the royal nursery at Nottingham Cottage ready, as well as Apartment 1A of Kensington Place, in time for her baby's arrival
Meaningful photographs of the family, including shots of Princes William and Harry with their late mother Princess Diana are likely to decorate the nursery. Kate's elegant and demure style that mixes designer with high street together with the couple's down to earth nature will make for a special haven for them and their first child when they are out of sight of the world
The new nursery inside Apartment 1A of Kensington Place will mark the significant transition of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge from being a couple to becoming parents. The design will aspire to cradle their baby during a significant period of growth and development in a blend of sensory delight and wonder in a wonderful yet modest setting. Toys will inevitably play a huge part in the room, which may be from William and Kate's own childhood
Yellow hues blend with a neutral palette to build a subtle, elegant and tranquil palette, instilling a light airy feel in a stylish yet comfortable environment that the maturing royal child will not out grow. Visit Oliver Burns for more information
