PRINCESS Char­lotte El­iz­a­beth Diana has ar­rived.

In hon­our of this new­est royal, we asked in­te­rior designer Pippa Noble, from Pippa Noble Cre­ative, for tips on how to dec­o­rate a girl’s nurs­ery that’s fit for roy­alty but on a bud­get.

Noble says colours play a key role, such as sub­tle blushes and gold fin­ishes. Fin­ish the space with a lit­tle glit­ter and glitz with gold ac­cents and crys­tals. Start sim­ply: A neu­tral colour pal­ette is the key to a great child’s room, Noble says. “You can then sub­tly or dramatically change the room by us­ing cost-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tions and play­ful deca­dence. Throw on a lit­tle royal sweet­ness with some sweet blan­kets,’’ she says.

Her pick: The Uh-Oh Soft In­dian Cot­ton Blan­kets ( skeanie.com.au) which fea­ture del­i­cate artis­tic de­tails. Bon­jour La-Mode: “Yes, French pro­vin­cial style is back in fash­ion. Its un­der­stated el­e­gance has a stylis­tic sim­plic­ity and will pro­vide your lit­tle princess el­e­gance,’’ Noble says.

Her choice: The Jemima Cot from Incy In­te­ri­ors ( in­cy­in­te­ri­ors.com.au) is a per­fect ex­am­ple of the style as it boasts a dis­tressed an­tique white fin­ish with a soft gold patina for sub­tle op­u­lence. Royal charm: In­tro­duce old-world charm to the nurs­ery with the warmth of tra­di­tional old-school prints and char­ac­ters, Noble says.

Her pick: Welly’s Won­ders ( wellyswon­ders.com.au) is a new brand of­fer­ing A4 and A3 prints, ba­bies’ and chil­dren’s cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories, and art­work that lets lit­tle ones take a step back in time. Dec­o­ra­tive


“Soft toys are sweet as they can com­pletely change or add per­son­al­ity to a drab room,” Noble says. “What’s more, colour­ful char­ac­ters be­come cher­ished mem­bers of the fam­ily and can be passed down gen­er­a­tions.’’

A baby bal­le­rina or cro­chet doll adds per­son­al­ity and can dress up a bed, book­shelf or side ta­ble. Sim­ple trea­sures: “While bub­blegum pinks and elec­tric blues are favourable for many chil­dren’s nurs­ery rooms, a plain white wall sea­soned with sil­ver or gold dec­o­ra­tions pro­vides the per­fect touch of glam­our with max­i­mum im­pact state­ment. To sparkle this sea­son, add bold gold gar­lands and buntings,” Noble says. Be artis­tic: “Art has never been so per­sonal and af­ford­able. Brain­spi­ra­tion (brain­spi­ra­tion.com.au) have cre­ated time­less and charm­ing art pieces which are born out of a de­sire to bring hope and in­spi­ra­tion.

They also have fa­mous city signs (like Lon­don for our royal room).’’
