A plain white wall seasoned with silver or gold decorations provide the perfect touch of glamour with maximum impact statement ... add sparkle to nursery with garlands and artwork
PROVINCIAL STYLE BACK IN FASHION
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).’’
