What is it about Prince William and Kate Middleton’s baby on-the-way news that makes me want more?!

Creations Baby Venezia Collection: Convertible Crib, Combo Dresser and Hutch
This luxurious nursery furniture set in vanilla will bring a touch of European sophistication into your nursery. Crafted out of brich veneers and select hardwoods, it showcases stunning floral and leaf work, scrollwork, pilasters, curving lines, high backs and rosettes for a distinguished glimpse of high society. And for when little William or Kate gets older, the baby crib converts into a toddler bed and full bed. What I love most about this gorgeous nursery set is that it is reasonably priced, but looks like a million dollars.
For literally everyone else without a royal budget, you can have a stunning European/Traditional look for your nursery that will not cost a fortune. Here are some design tips to help you:
- Well-crafted baby furniture with curved legs and delicate carving
- Intricate and textured baby bedding with lace, chiffon, or fancy embroidery.
- Long, chiffon drapes for the window that will give your nursery a distinguished look
- Crown molding on floor and ceiling
- Elegant chandelier with lighting
- Old-world/antique type décor, such as wrought iron or handcrafted wood
- Stripes, damask, piping or French toile designs
There you have it! Just imagine you’re on the movie set of Pride and Prejudice. Your baby nursery will look fit for a princess or prince.
