10 Blue-Inspired Must-Haves Fit for the Royal Baby Nursery

Even though the due date on Kate Middleton's pregnancy is dwindling down by the second (mama-to-be is reportedly due on July 13th!), it looks like there's no slowing the expectant Duchess down! Tomorrow officially marks the start of her Royal Maternity Leave but over the weekend, she was spotted checking out some nursery fabric possibilities at the high end wallpaper-design store Bernard Thorp & Co. Here's the ultimate kicker: an onlooker revealed that the Duchess of Cambridge spent 45 minutes picking out blue prints for the nursery walls and drapes. We've said it again and again and again, but it looks like Kate and Will are prepping to welcome a baby heir to the English throne. Though she reportedly didn't make any purchases that day, looks like the mum-to-be is hoping to outfit baby's nursery with some chic, designer studs in her time off. But really, when you're royal, who has time for shopping from store to store? Not Kate, that's who! So, we searched the Interwebs high and low for some ultra-fab fashions that would look perfect in baby boy's nursery. Check out Kate's something blue nursery must-haves: How are you decorating baby's nursery?
