Kate Middleton ensures Adelaide Cottage interiors are ‘bold’ but not ‘gaudy’ – expert

Kate Middleton and Prince William once lived at Kensington Palace in London, but now live at Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor Estate. Francesca Hadland, styling expert for Bridgman, gave her top tips on how royal fans can style their home like the Princess of Wales.

According to Francesca, “personal touches are key” when it comes to her “top tips for interior design fit for royalty.”

She explained: “Her Royal Highness Catherine, Princess of Wales is a patron of photography and often uses it to share special moments with loved ones.

“Feel free to post your own family photos and treasured memories.

“It could be recent images from trips with your loved ones, old photos of those who are gone but not forgotten.

“Display them proudly by creating a gallery wall in your hallway or living room, or placing them on shelves, sideboards and tables throughout your home.”

Kate previously shared a glimpse inside Adelaide Cottage when she recorded a home video for Addictions Awareness Week.

Royal fans could see her many family photos in the background of her living room, including many photos of her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

In the same video clip, footage could be seen of the Prince and Princess of Wales’ bold sofa, which was bright red adorned with pink and white cushions.

Francesca suggests these are “statement pieces” which are a really good idea for royal fans trying to emulate Kate’s home style.

She commented, “Find a centerpiece that acts as the focal point of your space. We suggest a bold sofa or accent chair that guides the theme of the rest of your space.

“The royal family has a penchant for rich fabrics, colors and patterns, so embrace a bit of extravagance to create your own private palace.

“Think rich purples and hues of royal blue that possess an irresistible air of decadence.

“Remember, bold doesn’t mean showy – if you prefer to keep things a little more understated, even simple cream and gray upholstery can make a statement when used in plush fabrics like chenille and velour.”

Francesca maintains that Kate and William take as much care of their gardens as they do of the interior of their royal property.

She explained: “We know from their photos that Welsh people spend a lot of their time connecting with nature, so beautifying your own garden is a must.”

Other members of the royal family feel the same way, according to Francesca. She claimed: “King Charles III also has a particular passion for the outdoors.

“He devoted much of his energy to transforming the gardens around Highgrove House, now recognized as among the most inspiring and innovative in the country.

“While your outdoor space may not be as lavish, you can still create a peaceful sanctuary that reflects your personal tastes and priorities.

“For those who prefer a moment of respite from the business of normal life, create a small Zen garden, rockery or secluded space where you can sit and relax in peace.

“Or, for busy families, a large patio with spacious sectional sofas will provide plenty of room for entertaining.”
