Kate Middleton ‘embraces regal heritage’ with red furnishings at Kensington Palace home


KATE MIDDLETON has “embraced her regal heritage” in her Kensington Palace home, according to interior design experts.

Interior design expert and Founder and CEO of ufurnish.com Deirdre Mc Gettrick, said there are striking similarities between the two spaces, with the couple also showcasing their family photos to give the rooms a more personal touch.

Ms Mc Gettrick told FEMAIL that colours in the home can “evoke different feelings or emotions”.

She also said primary colours such as red and green, would traditionally line the walls of a royal home.

However, it seems Kate and Prince William have gone for more “neutral tones” to give the rooms a more modern look.

While the paint colours remain largely neutral, pops of colour can still be seen in furnishings and accessories.

In November last year, Kate was pictured sat on a cream sofa in her London home at Kensington Palace.

The cream sofa was decorated with block red cushions and red patterned cushions.

Ms Mc Gettrick said by including red, the couple have “delicately embraced the regal heritage of their property.”

Meanwhile, interior design expert Benji Lewis said the cushions are simply “decorative detail”.

He explained: “Dipping into pattern is a decorative detail that has been embraced via the inclusion of the multiple cushions – embroidered in a kind of Ottoman fashion with scrolling foliage – but this could be off the peg shopping rather than bespoke.”

Yesterday, Kate and William offered more of a glimpse inside their apartment at Kensington Palace.

The couple shared a video message for a mental health campaign.

Mr Lewis also said Kate has chosen a “neutral contemporary classic” look in her home and office spaces.

He said Kate’s choice of wall colour is “timeless chalky” and is accented with other colours which are both harmonious and calming.

The interior expert said there are no colour clashes with the overall look being “well executed” and “inoffensive”.

Kate is known for her stunning wardrobe and make up choices.

She often looks flawless in floral dresses, structured collars and ruffled shirts.

Mr Lewis said Kate’s decor choices often “work brilliantly” with her wardrobe and “set her up very well backdrop-wise for her virtual appointments.”

Photos of Kate and William’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis can often be seen in the background during their video calls.

Mr Lewis said the family photos make the couple seem more approachable.

They also add a “homely look” and “personal touch” to the decor.
