Some Wonderful Girl's Rooms

Little girls often dream of having their very own special rooms........their own little havens.

The following rooms have lots of details and ideas to incorporate into a child's room to personalize for any child.........murals, canopies, wall art, wonderful fabrics, monograms, side chairs, antiques, chandeliers and stuffed friends scattered about with comfort, color and prettiness everywhere!

Any child's dream!


What little girl wouldn't love this room?  Living in a tent like room and surrounded by friends?

Love this ostrich painting.

Posh Nursery #3 - Ivory's another posh (royal) nursery........and this time it is completely gender neutral.

In order to keep it neutral, besides all the ivory colored furniture, I went with a complete animal theme in the art and accessories.  Can't go wrong there!  What child wouldn't love to be surrounded by animals!

Now, from what I have gleaned from my internet research, Kate really loves this Notte Fatata furniture.....and I must agree, it is really beautiful.  Look at the back of the becomes a headboard for a single bed later has lovely detail.........a little girly for a boy's single bed, but that's just a detail..........they'll get something else if they have a little prince.  Definitely need the heirloom armoires and chest that is also the change table!

I even went with a very tailored skirt on the bassinet.......nothing too ruffled or feminine.

The ceiling light is without bling and it is round, as is the mirror and the swirled fabric for the windows.

The wool rug is meant to cover the whole floor with some sheepskin rugs in front of the crib and one in front of that gorgeous child's Versailles chair.  Loved that!

Throw in some plush toys and a little bear rocking chair and there you go!

What do you think - is there a favorite among the three nurseries?

Let me know!!

(P.S.  I might still do a totally English country nursery with chintz and roses.......we'll see!)

Posh Nursery #2 - Blue

Here we are again!

Let's say a little prince arrives in the royal household this summer!  What is prettier and fresher looking than a blue and white color scheme!  Nothing, really!  And blue and white is one of (if not the most!) coveted color combinations in interior works anywhere and everywhere!

And actually, this particular scheme and look could easily be unisex.........just as beautiful for a little princess.  Simply by changing the ride on toys to something girlier, it becomes a gorgeous girl's room.  If it was for a girl, I might switch to a soft floral fabric instead of the blue ticking, but not necessarily.  Everything else could remain the same.

When planning these moodboards, naturally I have the Kensington Palace apartment of William and Kate in mind, as that will be their homebase.  So, I am keeping with this very traditional look as I think the palace rooms might expect know, pure English country and comfort.

As for the artwork in the nursery, it's always fun to go with animal art and in the case of this Salvador Dali elephant giraffe, some whimsy is welcome, as well.  

I imagine the rooms at Kensington Palace are fairly large, so a lot more artwork will be required, but this piece is just an example of the direction one could go in...........

It's been reported that Victoria Beckham collects Damien Hirst art for her children's bedrooms and that little Harper has some Hirst butterfly art in her room.   Why not buy original art if you can afford it?  It's another lifetime investment and an instant heirloom. Remember, we are talking about 'very posh nurseries' here for people with unlimited incomes.

Speaking of unlimited incomes, Kate has proven over and over again that her style is not always about money - she has shown it is about comfort, sensibility, practicality and fun!  Whatever she comes up with for a nursery, I know it will be tasteful, warm, functional and a wonderful environment for her and her new little prince or princess!

I have one more posh nursery to come!  It will be completely gender neutral and gorgeous!  Be sure to check it out!

The Moodboard!

This furniture from Poshtots and Art for Kids is really beautiful with the chest and armoire long-term investments......solid, beautiful and will last a lifetime.  And the crib is just too beautiful to resist!  The upholstered, tufted head and footboards are just added comfort.
This is pretty special, I must say!

Isn't this a stunning chandelier?  Another perfect item for a regal nursery.

A necessary table lamp........beautiful colors.

A large damask area rug.

This is such a comfortable looking nursing chair for Kate.....the blue ticking indicating the cushion could be used for the window treatments, as well.
This child's chair is perfect for a little prince!

Love this elephant giraffe by Salvador Dali.  The elephant accessories are a nod to Prince William's work on behalf of saving the elephants and preventing poaching of these magnificent animals.

Some ride on toys and great art.

How about some original dog art - this piece by Mary Sparrow Smith.   It adds color and charm and what better time to start teaching children compassion and love for animals, but in the nursery.  Same as can never start too early!

Topiaries are a nice addition to any room!

White roses!
And more white roses!

And when the little prince is old enough, he's going to need a roadster to get around those long palace hallways!
