When Kate went shopping for floor coverings at Cotswold Oriental Rugs, she snapped up a few Turkish kilims that have a kind of flat tapestry weave. Owner Simon Knight later said, "She was looking for things for bedrooms, so she wanted softer pastel shades rather than strong colors."
It seems Kate's love of all things blue doesn't end with her wardrobe. After she picked up blue towels and blue gingham hangers at Zara Home, one of the sales assistants revealed, "She definitely likes blue. Everything she seemed to look at was blue but not for babies — she must just like the color."
