I have to smile at the photo of Rio on the chair. It seems even royal pets get on the furniture.

I love the beautiful tappestry or art behind her in the final photo.

Straight Person of the Year? - Well, I must look up, what the Swedish wording was!

ADDED: I did. And was surprised. Such a category never occurred to me.

The twigs in the window needs to be shortened, but perhaps the children collected them, in which case they must stay.

Calm, soothing colors.
Not much to point your finger at.

I see I am not alone in thinking the title of the award was a bit odd. Usually it would be something like LGBTQ advocate of the year or ally of the year.

The twigs are lovely but agree they do look like they could poke out an eye.

I must admit I like Haga. A mix of some classic furniture and a bit more modern comfort in areas, neutral with lovely pops of color.

Off topic as it's not interior decoration related (please mods don't kill me ) but since you two brought it up QX magazine hands out several awards each year of which two are Hetero of the year and HBTQ of the year. To become Hetero of the year you don't have to be a LGBTQIA+ advocate (although several has been), it's enough to be someone who for instance has brought joy to or put the spotlight on aspects of the LGBTQIA+ community.

The first one is really cute with Victoria sitting on her desk and the dog watching.

I can remember that there once pictures released/made of CP Mette-Marit in her office, at her desk. Does anyone know which pictures I mean?

Let's have a closer look in the more personal rooms of Huis Ten Bosh:

First King WA's Office: https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0

A second view: https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0

Light and yet with a good contrast. Modern yet a little traditional in style. Furnished yet not cluttered with stuff.

There is a painting of 1600 (+/- 50 years) guy next to the desk. An inspiration?

We can clearly see how high King WA can reach...

Nice view from the desk.

There is an odd thingy in the ceiling though.

With photos of his wife and children having a prominent place. I think the blue rhino is a Maxima. Or perhaps a present from his children.

I think I could work there. - After having repainted the nicotine-colored walls!

------------------------
Then we have Queen Maxima's office:
https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0
Another view: https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0
A third look: https://billedbladet-prod.imgix.net/...=imgixjs-3.4.0

Interesting wallpaper, but certainly better than curry-colored!

Not sure what I think of the blue-whatever-it-is over the mantel-piece. Seems out of place IMO.
I seriously like the table and the chairs!

The buro in the corner is a really nice antique piece.

The curtains are light and different and it works.

But the light-horror in the ceiling must die!

Is Queen Maxima's office facing a public area, since there appears to be a privacy-screen on the the window?

That 'inspirational figure' is Willem van Oranje (24 April 1533 – 10 July 1584; so with your '+/- 50 years' you are within the right timeframe), also known as William the Silent, the founder of the dynasty.

There isn't a public area at Huis ten Bosch. All areas are far away from prying eyes. However, it could be that Máxima's is at the front where some visitors or workers might pass, while Willem-Alexander's is in the the back with a nice view of their garden.

Muhler, those walls of W-A's study seem to be covered in velvet, so perhaps very expensive to change! The first photo shows the room and colors to better advantage, IMO.
