Grosvenor House in London — Photo courtesy of Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott HotelLondon's Grosvenor House Hotel, in the heart of Mayfair, has a long association with the royal family since its opening in 1929. So, it's perhaps not surprising that this hotel claims to be the first in London to have specially designed a nursery suite with the royal baby in mind. The nursery is designed in conjunction with Dragons of Walton Street which provided nurseries and nursery furniture for Princes William and Harry and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie when they were growing up.
The company said, "following the Duchess of Cambridge's exciting news, the UK is currently amidst the biggest baby boom in more than 40 years. With the highly anticipated arrival of the new monarch, the UK is set to witness a tourism boost with travelers heading to UK shores to experience British history in the making."
In order to allow other women who have anticipated the Duchess just slightly to share in her experiences, they have outfitted the nursery suite, dubbed "suite dreams" to ease the difficulties for parents traveling with young children, and to provide them with a "quintessentially British experience" of a nursery.
The nursery suite will be in keeping with the 1920's style furnishings in the main suite; the cot will come complete with a coronet hanging above the center and have its very own four-poster bed feel with draped sheer voiles hanging on either side. The furniture will also be hand-carved and painted with a royal and park theme. The whole suite will be decorated in ivory tones and will incorporate a chaise lounge with two arms "ideal for nursing."
Child-sized furniture and a dollhouse version of the Grosvenor House Hotel will complete the fantasy and make all children feel they could be the future prince or princess of Britain.
