I have a copy of David Watkin's 'The Royal Interiors of Regency England', which contains a full collection of Pyne's watercolours (although none was painted by him). Absolutely fantastic views of the interiors of Windsor, Hampton Court, Buckingham House, St James's, Kensington, Frogmore and Carlton House. Those of Carlton House are the only surviving record we have of the interiors before its demolishion. Carlton House truly was the 'most perfect palace in Europe'.

Oh dear....I note that the lovely and much enjoyed floor plans of St James's Palace have been 'deleted or moved'. Is this because they were copyright material or removed for some other reason. I only ask as they really were so interesting to refer to when one reads descriptions etc in books and memoirs. The same goes for the plans of KP. They were so very interesting to see. Can we hope to have them back again at any time in the future....even if only for a briefest of peeks to refresh our memories.

The first two door's on the right side of the Household Corridor lead to the Ball Super Room, but how we can see on this photos the door's are blocked with some furniture piece.

I've seen some old pictures of the rooms of the Belgian Suite at the ground floor of Buckingham Palace.

Does anyone have colour pictures of these rooms:
Carnarvon Room/Orleans Room/18th Century Room/Spanish Room?

Thanks a lot!

It is just me, or does anyone else think the green walls of the Household Corridor are hideous?  Perhaps it's merely the lighting in the photo, but that color reminds me of a children's hospital ward, or a pre-school.   ::)

Oops, hit "post" before I finished my thought.

The other thing I notice is that aside from the kitchens, the Household Corridor is the only BP space I've ever seen photographed that has painted walls instead of wallpaper (or silk wall panels as in the State or Royal suites). 

After watching the television series The Monarchy (recently broadcast here in the States), I am even MORE interested than before in the non- State /Royal areas of the palaces.  That series showed the kitchens, the wine cellar, and a Footman's room (where a footman was polishing his shoes).  One scene also showed somebody in the Central Chancellry Office at St. James poking through storage cabinets of OBEs, OMs, etc. in preparation for an Investiture.  But would love to see pictures of a staff bedroom, the office areas, or the workshops where the various staff tend to their duties.  That would help give a flavor of what the real operation of the Court is like.
