Can you imagine how large the room/rooms that store all her gowns,furns,hats,shoes,suits--etc -- it would have to be climate controlled as well as high security (many of those clothes are worth a fortune)

I'm overwhelmed -- the results are beyond stunning IMO. There is one room with a sink and lots of cabinetry and animals painted on the walls. Could that be a children's art room?

Wow I really think they messed the mark on this big time. I understand wanting to make the place more modern but that was not the way to go. It doesn't mess well at all, if they wanted a more modern touch, it would have been better to go with the modern furniture, or more toned down art work. The modern works are in the banqueting hall, the dinning room, meeting room, reception room which just makes it so much worse because those are the ones that will be used in the course of their public duties. I see this as nothing sort of a failure at the attempt to combined the two. It's not that I don't like the art, I actually do like most of them, but not in the context of the palace, and the functions of the rooms. It's disappointed that with the budget they were given this is what they came up with.

This is a mess, the lovely palace looks quite awful, the mix between old and new is tasteless.

the new paintings definitely contrast a bit too much with the palace, it's true. however, they are just paintings and the structure of the palace hasn't been modified appart from the implementation of the wall, so in case other generations want to come back to its original state, i believe it would be possible.

the original bits look gorgeous though, i'm not sure what their state was when they started, but it seems that they have done a great job in the restauration.

i'm not a fan of some of the paintings but i think the children's room and the hall by olafur eliasson look great!

It's always very delicate to introduce modernity in old homes like this. Being not a big fan of contemporary art, i think, however, they did a great job! Color shemes are very interesting, quite fresh, and we can see that they made a clear difference btw state rooms (quite conventional, yet modern, colors) and more private quarters (with more "adventurous" paintjob).
The whole palace reflects perfectly the young and dynamic CP couple, and after all the building is not a museum but trully a living home! All is a matter of taste of course ... but it's fun, quite chic, and it shakes the more conservative sensibilities so i must say i like it!

I thought the one with the animals was one of the children's rooms too at first, but it's acutally the kitchen. The sink is visible in the picture, and the link with the layout states which painting is in which room. I can't understand why they would put that in the kitchen. To remind them of the next hunting season?

Thanks for the link guys!
I don't like the contemporary art that was added to walls/ceilings...I feel like it should all be kept much the same as it was originally. Some of those colors are BRIGHT! But everyone has a right to decide what they want in their own home, more power to them!
