I think I'll put this here, the DRF has placed some pictures about a new exhibition on Amalienborg Palace.
Udstilling: Bag om Amalienborg - Kongehuset

"The exhibition: behind the Amalienborg
Amalienborg museum opens Friday, October 9, 2015 the doors to the special exhibition 'Behind the Amalienborg' by artist Pia Schutzman.

Pia Schutzman has taken unknown aspects of the palaces of Amalienborg after visiting farms, gardens, basements and attics that are not otherwise available to the public over the past few years.

The exhibition runs until and including 3 January 2016."

Winter has descended over DK and the temperature has dropped. We can expect minus 17 degrees C (1 F) tonight and the cold weather may last well into March, perhaps even April.

It snowed in many parts of DK yesterday, not least in Copenhagen. Here is a picture of a sentry at Amalienborg in the snow yesterday: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...76-snevejr.jpg

As you can tell the snow is wet and sticky these days. (Come to think of it we actually have at least five or six words or descriptions of snow in Danish).

The picture puzzle me though! Normally the tent hat is only worn when it's very hot or if the guards have been called out, say due to an alarm.
And in cold weather the sentries wear a cape over the greatcoat for warmth.
So I don't know what has been going on.

It's funny you should mention it. I was just about to write about this very room.
Great, now people can look at your pictures.

The room is called Fanegemakket = The Colour Chamber (as in a flag) and you can see it here on the floorplan as room #18: https://app.box.com/shared/t80au7kpir

Apart from obviously being the room where M&F officially meet and greet guests. The guests will be waiting in room #19. And move on into the Gobelin Hall #20 after having said hello to M&F.

The name and location is significant. The Colour Chamber, because when M&F become the Regent Couple, this is where the Colours of the Royal Lifeguard Regiment's Guards Battalion will be placed.
They will be moved here the day Frederik become king.

Tak Muhler! It is a very lovely room and I especially like the periwinkle blue color on the walls.

Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #41, 2016.

Where a P.V. Finnedal wonder why Joachim and our Marie didn't move in at Christian VIII's mansion at Amalienborg after the sale of Schackenborg.
After all Joachim and Frederik had that mansion at their disposal when they turned eighteen.

Jon Bloch Skipper responds that he can well understand why Joachim moved into a villa of his own.
Christian VIII's mansion house an apartment for Joachim, but also Benedikte (and it's also the museum of Amalienborg), so there really isn't that much room.
And he can well imagine the DRF wouldn't be that interested in all of them living door to door on a daily basis.

- That sounds pretty plausible to me as well. I wouldn't like to live next door to mine or my wife's family on a daily basis - as much as I like them.
And eventually M&F's children will need the apartments at Christian VIII's mansion.

I agree that Joachim and his family living full time at the palace while sharing it with Benedikte would not be an ideal situation for all involved. Joachim and family can enjoy their home away from the royal hustle and bustle of Amalienborg but be close enough for event.s

Joachim with his family moved permanently to Copenhagen and not for a weekend or a few days! So it is quite natural and understandable to want a house large and comfortable!

I have to agree with others that it wouldn't be that great of an experience "living above the shop" so to speak at Amelienborg Palace. A home is best when its just a home and not among other things with a bunch of other people roaming around.

Welcome to the board, Feyza.oz

Do share more from your experience. It's always interesting to learn from those on the spot.
We natives also tend to see tings differently and focus on other things.

I must say the room is huge, I love the chandelier and the curtains, the mirror with the gold trim and all the molding and the gold in the doors, but the furniture and decorations it is nothing special!

Loving old castles and palaces, that pinkish coffee table is so out of place in that beautiful room. And change that desk/sofa table sitting behind that sofa. Having some little experience in design, these two things stood out like sore thumbs, other then that, great room and a very handsome couple.

BB has compiled a little appendix about M&F's residence at Amalienborg this week.
Here is first the entire folder: Inside M&F's home
Note! Not all the scans are also posted below.

And then I'll go into details about what is shown in the article. I'll write what the rooms are called in Danish and English, to reduce confusion and as a guide, should you stumble over a photo of M&F's home, with a Danish caption.
I will also add numbers to my comments. Numbers that correspond with the numbers on this floorplan: Floorplan

Let's start with this official photo: Tapestry Hall
#20 - Gobelinsalen = The Tapestry-hall. This hall is furnished and decorated in the style the mansion had when it was taken over by the DRF back in the late 1700's.

Mary with Ziggy and the main stairs: Main staircase
#1 - Hovedtrappen = the main staircase.

The Colour Chamber, Mary's office, Mary's reception room and the Conference room
#18 Top - Fanegemakket = The colour-room. Here official guests are welcomed by M&F. When Frederik become king, the colours of the Royal Lifeguard Regiment will be stored here.
#8 Bottom left - Marys kontor = Mary's office.
#7 Middle right - Forgemak = Front/reception room for Mary's office. And presumably where her secretary works. - The artwork, depicting the world, it meant to remind people that one is merely a humble thing in a big, big world.
#2 Bottom right - Mødelokalet = The conference room. The psychedelic painting in the ceiling depicts the universe with the Sun as center.

The Knights Hall-A
The Knights Hall-B
#9 - Riddersalen = The Knights Hall/Great Hall. - The largest room in the residence. The stools the family is sitting on for the official photo are from 1828. And there are 10 of them. Five chandeliers are suspended from the ceiling. When Frederik become king, this is the room they will emerge from when going out on the balcony.
When Queen Ingrid lived here, she always served tea in this room at 16.00. So Frederik has many fond memories from this room.

The Great Dining Room-A
The Great Dining Room-B
#24 - Taffelsalen = The Great Dining Room. The doors are in a classical style. The mirrors in the niches are specially made. The decorations on the wall and ceiling are brought back to how they were in the 1830's.
This is where M&F entertain official guests - and large parties presumably.

The Garden room and private stairs
#3 Top - Havesalen = The Garden Room. Along with the Great Hall the second major representation room in the residence.
#14 Bottom - Trappe = The stairs to M&F's private rooms on the top floor. The lamps are supposed to depict bubbles in water rising towards the surface.

The private dining room and the Throne Chamber
#11 Top - Spisestuen = The private dining room. This is the room where M&F entertain private guests.
#5 Bottom left - The door from Trongemakket = The Throne Chamber opening into the dining room. - I believe that room is now used for reading, serving coffee and listening to music.
- Havetrappen = The garden stairs. Going into the garden behind the mansion, from the Tapestry Hall.

Private kitchen-A
Private kitchen-B
#12 - Køkken-alrum = Kitchen-Family room. - M&F's private kitchen and with four lively children, probably very much where most activities take place during daytime hours.

Butler's pantry
#4 - Anretterkøkken = Butler's pantry. The beautifully decorated ceiling has been brought back to it's original style.

And here is this issue of BB: BB06, 2017

I should have liked to have written about what Mary had been up to, but reading the articles, there sure ain't much meat on them bones!
