With the birth of Princess Charlotte this month, Royal Baby fever has been incredibly high both online and off!
With an estimated £1.5 million spent on refurbishment and interiors, William and Kate’s Norfolk mansion on the Sandringham estate respects the 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 residence is guaranteed to set a standard and reference to the design world.
Currently, no information or footage of 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 mind 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 color scheme, and to stick to it. Then, textiles, paint and other decorative elements should be appropriately selected within the pre-defined color scheme. Next, it is time to select bedroom furniture, keeping in mind that these pieces can be adapted to fit the given textiles, and color scheme.

Wall crowns are an essential element in any royal nursery. Not only do they bring an aristocratic feel to the room, they can also be extremely practical, serving as either a support for a cannopy, or even as a light mount. 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 fundamental 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.
Monograms are very aristocratic marks, and bring character to the bedroom when mounted on a wall or on the back of a chair. If paired with a coat of arms you’ll achieve the final royal touch.
Chandeliers are timeless and can make any bedroom pop. Regardless if it’s a boy or girl room, they are incredibly fun pieces and very much in trend.
