It’s springtime, which means the world will soon welcome the new royal baby.

The Duchess of Sussex is reportedly due at the end of April and is busy preparing her new home in Windsor before the little one’s arrival.

“According to sources who are helping with [Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new home] renovations, the nursery itself is going to be very modern,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told ET Canada. “Don't expect to see any baby pink or baby blue. Apparently, it's going to be a monochrome palette—whites and grays, I'm told, will be the colour theme for baby Sussex's nursery.”

With that in mind, we searched Instagram for the most beautiful modern nurseries fit for a duchess. These might not all have a monochromatic colour scheme, but they sure are stunning ideas for a contemporary nursery.

1. Pop of Colour

Why we love it: This nursery is a standout thanks to the pink and white decor pieces paired against the blue-grey walls. We especially love the pop of colour the bed canopy provides, as well as the elegant floral wall art.

2. Beach House Vibes

Why we love it: The neutral colours of this room create a wonderfully calm, beach house vibe. The wicker and wood elements also beautifully complement the natural light from the window, making the space feel big and airy.

3. Statement Wall Art

Why we love it: Sometimes it’s good to keep things simple. The focal point of this nursery is its two statement art pieces hanging above the crib. The playful illustrations are both tasteful and fun!

4. Boho Style

Why we love it: Who knew cribs could come with a boho vibe? This particular one is a unique addition to the nursery as it's made to stand out against the white room.

5. Burnt Gold Interiors

Why we love it: Burnt gold might seem like a bold colour choice for a nursery, but it works in this room. The bright colour is balanced here thanks to the beige walls, wood decor and white crochet rug.

6. Unique Wallpaper

Why we love it: Wallpaper might seem like an outdated decor tool, but it can add a cool visual element to your nursery when used on one wall. We love the simplicity of this wallpaper design paired with classic, modern furniture in the room.

7. Chic Wall Art

Why we love it: Speaking of wall designs, we love the unique world map on this nursery wall. It’s somehow playful, educational, and chic all at the same time.

8. Light and Dark Elements

Why we love it: You wouldn’t expect a mix of light and dark colours to actually brighten up a room, but it does. Here, the dark purple accents against the white decor give this nursery a clean, modern look.

9. Two-In-One Nursery

Why we love it: This nursery doubles as a playroom, which is a win for parents everywhere. The coral and teal colour combo is bright, fun and refreshing. And did you notice the wave detail on the wall above the crib? So cute!

10. Dreamy Dark Tones

Why we love it: If you love dark, neutral tones but are afraid it will make your nursery look dreary, fear not! You can still create a dreamy atmosphere by adding light-coloured elements and wall decor. Of course, having a big window in the room also helps!

Bonus: Ceiling Decor

Why we love it: We never would have thought to decorate the nursery ceiling! The bright, yellow lines in this room create a unique effect and are certainly something fun for any little one to look up at.
