Pink is for Princess…like Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, with blushing cheeks and rosebud mouth.

The pretty baby girl, daughter to Prince William and Duchess Kate and little sister to Prince George, is fourth in line for the British throne. The newest royal is named for her grandfather, Prince Charles, great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, and paternal grandmother, Diana, Princess of Wales. Sweetly feminine and artfully aristocratic, this floral cameo wallpaper, with lovely coordinating stripe, is perfect for a  royal nursery done in sugar and spice and everything nice…just like a delectable Raspberry Charlotte dessert!

From powder pink to POWER pink, a look at the Royals’ fashion history demonstrates the popularity of the reddish color, which is currently on trend in wearable fashion as well as home décor. Queen Elizabeth, Diana Princess of Wales, and Duchess Katherine have all been pretty in pink…from soft shell to vivid cerise. Pink can be demure or assertive. This watercolor floral in soft and strong color takes center stage, shown here with a wide ombre stripe and novelty wallpaper featuring stylish accessories.

Both the Queen and Diana have had roses named for them.   Perhaps one day Charlotte will, as well. In his revised “Candle in the Wind”, Elton John sang “Goodbye, England’s Rose”; a fitting tribute to Diana.  She had become a style icon, seen here in a simply elegant evening dress.  Surely she would approve of this traditional rose stripe along with the lacy damask and a glittering contemporary floral.

On a visit to Guadalcanal Island with Duchess Kate, Prince William opted for a bright pink shirt…very appropriate for a tropical setting.  Greens and pinks complement one another in the floral silhouette wallpaper which blends well with the green striae and the faux embroidery design.
