It was too dark?

How many bedrooms do you think her apartments had; 5 perhaps?

Yes, the light wasn't really good. I think most of the apartment was facing north but I might be wrong.

That I really don't know. What's for sure is that they had enough to make separate rooms when they didn't get along anymore .

Her decor is nice not really my taste. I like the crown moldings and the yellow, I see Diana was going for a classic Georgian/Regency/Victorian look.

Yes but you must remember that this the late 70's/early 80's. Everyone had this look!

I think a lot of people did the lacquer thing in the mid to late 80's. Is amazing how even homes can look dated. That's what I go for the classic look.

I like classic too but I prefer to mix it with some contempory pieces. Her apartmet looks like something out of a Jane Austen novel. I wonder what year these pictures were taken because I remember reading Paul Burell's first book and he said she redecorated after the divorce.

Yes it does. Not too my liking at all but again I didn't have to live there :)


But maybe that is Diana's style. I remember pictures of Highgrove when she was married to Charles and its looks quite similar.

On another note, I should add that I do the classic look with contemporary items that show my personality. A home should be that just that a home not a showpiece. But I guess if you have like that where you can have a couple of showpiece rooms or homes than that is not that bad as well!

Those interiors are timeless. I have yet to see an IKEA room in any stately home or home of someone stately. The aristocracy still decorate their homes in this style. I luv it.

I prefer to have my own bedroom. He's welcome at any time. It's not uncommon among couples who get along. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I don't want my man watching me put on makeup or style my hair. I want him to see the best of me.

I wonder if the younger generations like Beatrice decorate their apartments with the same decor as Diana or do they use modern pieces...
Your right Kitty it is grand and timeless.

I like the furniture, but the colors in all of BP could have been different. I think it was Prince Charles influence in this. If you look at Princess Diana's bedroom/dressing room the colors are light and airy. These pictures are during the marriage. I read the Prince of Wales carpet was the first thing to go. Then remodeling using blue decor.

BTY, I can not believe today is thirteen years that Diana, Princess of Wales is not with us. I wonder if her boys are sad today. Prince Henry said they think about their mother everyday.

It would be interesting to see the younger royals living spaces.

I remember flipping through the pages of Paul Burrell's The Way We Remember Her book, and the living/entertaining room was the same color yellow as the room in the pictures. I believe he took the pictures around the time of Diana's death.

Not my taste, but I believe that Diana was looking to renovate her Kensington apartment in the Fall of 1997 but I am not sure as to the name of the magazine I read it in. It did say though she wanted a far more modern look, something Anglo Indian, light walls and dark floors. I can't believe it has been 13 yrs, where has the time gone!

Anglo Indian that's very interesting. I definetly believe that she was redecorating her apartment. If she was here today it would've looked different.

I also read it in Paul Burrell's "The Way We Were" that it had been redecorated/was being redecorated at the time of her death. I vaguely remember him writing something along the lines that she'd never really lived with the new colors in the sitting room but had just made a flying stop to pick up some things before rushing off to meet the Fayeds.

Ah yes, now I remember he said the same thing in his first book. Thank you Osipi, is "The We Were" a good read I'm planning on borrowing it from the library?

I found it interesting reading once I got into it. At first it really seemed that all Paul was doing was talking about Paul but it did give some interesting insights into the "at home" facets of Diana's life.

I've been reading the book its actually very good. I've grown to like Diana's decor in the drawing room. I think is something an everyday person can throw on in their own houses. But I love the Princess's dining room! The crimson is a great color for a dining room. And the bamboo chairs were very nice too. I'm getting some ideas for my apartment.

Crimson is a great color with greens and gold.
