Royal Nursery Inspiration Board

We had fun putting together a sophisticated nursery board with English country house touches for Princess Kate.

Reports say the duchess will be depending on her mom in the first days after the baby's birth, just like any new first-time mom. Breaking royal tradition, Princess Kate and the new baby will live with her parents for at least six weeks after leaving the hospital, according to media reports.

When designing a nursery with chic accents look for accessories in the adult section of your favorite stores. Many adult items can easily work for a nursery in muted pastel shades.

2. Stripe Rug

A cotton stripe rug is soft enough for baby to play on the floor. A pastel blue stripe feels traditional but not too sweet.

A dresser that matches the linear lines of the crib. This piece feels simplistic and restrained much like mum's mom-to-be maternity style.

A regal way to keep stores contained and tidy. Woven rush baskets are commonly found in country homes in England. A stateside take on the style can be found in natural seagrass.

8. Botanical Wallpaper

English paint and wallpaper company Farrow & Ball released a few colors suggestions for the royal nursery. But why not try wallpaper? A king or queen would never draw on the walls with a crayon!
