09 May We are wondering what little Archie’s nursery may look like
It’s always exciting when you bring a new baby home and most parents consider designing and decorating the baby’s nursery an enjoyable task.
Harry and Meghan have supposedly spent around £150,000 decorating Archie’s room – and much of that will be have been spent on all the latest gadgets and gizmos that Harry apparently loves.
We can also take an educated guess at Meghan’s design style, thanks to the glimpses we had of her Toronto apartment via her now defunct Instagram page. She likes to mix different textures – so a sheepskin rug thrown over a linen sofa for example.
She loves white – white sofa, white bedding, white flowing drapes – but she is also likes to mix it up with some eclectic colourful pieces in the form of boho and/or antiques. She has admitted that she loves scented candles, metallic photo frames and fresh flowers, peonies are her favourite.
How might this translate to the décor in Archie’s room? As a feminist, it’s doubtful there will be a lot of blue and in fact we know she has used quite a lot of grey – a lovely gender neutral colour which is flexible enough to work with many others. If shades of grey are the main colour palette that leaves the couple plenty of scope to add in those bohemian items to add a dash of colour.
While finding space in their home for that additional family member is not a problem for the Royal couple, for many people a growing family can put pressure on their living arrangements. A loft conversion is often the solution and if course, that nursery will eventually become a toddlers play room, a teenage hang out and often living-come-sleeping space for an adult child.
As well as providing additional space at the time your family needs it – the great thing about a loft conversion is that it will add value when you eventually decide to sell your property. Some property experts say a well-built loft conversion can add up to 22% to the value of your home, making it one of the best returns on investments.
As you can see from these images, many Econoloft customers are also opting for gender neutral colours when it comes to decorating their loft conversion nursery rooms. White offers a neutral colour palette that is easily changed as your child grows, while the delicious mint feature wall provides a serene and calm environment.
However, you decide to decorate your baby’s nursery – it’s probably the best fun you could have with interior design. We’d love to see your pictures @econoloft
