It's not often we get a peek inside the Royal Family's home, but thanks to the various appearances Kate Middleton has made over video, we've learned more about her interior design style.


From Buckingham Palace to Frogmore Cottage, most of us would love to discover all the Royal Family's interior design secrets. After seeing the little bit of Kate and Prince William's private apartment at Kensington Palace, it's clear that Kate has an impressive collection of floral pillows. While she's attended various virtual events, the Duchess has been seen sitting on a couch in one of her living spaces, and each time we've been able to see her against elegant floral cushions.

The choice of floral brings personality to the space and show's her love of color and pattern. The pillows also seem to match the gold and Victorian-like notes of the palace, helping to tie together the look.

Kate and Prince William are no strangers to hosting notable guests, including former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. In the formal drawing-room, we can see the guests all cozied up on the couch with Kate's floral cushions front and center.

If you're looking to add a vintage-chic touch to your home, Kate successfully does this by incorporating these floral pillows. Adding a touch of texture and design is a quick and simple technique for adding a statement piece into practically any room of your home. For the Duchess, florals seem to not only be a favorite but her go-to for dressing up a room.

Her styling method seems to be to match the base color of the pillow with her couch so that the flowers become the main focus. Kate also made sure that the pink flowers matched the same shade of pink in the room, which you can see in the flowers in the vase behind her and the pink silk chair in the background. This helps create a harmonious color range.

She has also added accent pillows to go with her floral pillows that range in texture. In the above photo, her accent pillows are a green velvet pillow and an orange and yellow fringe pillow. Rather than just have the floral pillows, these can help provide extra color that complements the floral pillows and bring the room together more.

How to add Kate Middleton's floral pillow trend into your home

Want to incorporate some royal-inspired florals into your home? The trend can adapt to most rooms whether to give it a finished appearance. For areas like your living room or sitting room, finding florals with complementary shades to the walls and your couch will create a visually pleasing look. If your room features neutral colors like gray or white, this gives you the freedom to add brighter colors that will attract the eye. Or, if your room is decorated in a calming sage green, add wooden finishes that will complement it. 

If you're looking for some royal-like pillows that Kate Middleton might approve of, we found some pillows below that are not only similar to Kate's but are perfect for adding a touch of summer to your home this season.
