Princess Diana is was a popular fashion icon and an inspiring human being. She was known for her big support towards charities helping the homeless, people living with HIV and AIDS and children in need. But Diana had a few more secrets up here sleeve, she also had a good eye for interior design and completely renovated her home in Kensington Palace when she and her family moved there.
Apartments 8 and 9 in Kensington Palace were the new home for Diana and Prince Charles after they moved there as a newly wedded couple. Interior designer Dudley Poplak helped Diana with the design by reflecting her personal style into a home from the 17th century.
The nursery where Prince William and Harry spent most of their time included a bedroom for each of them and a large playing space. There was also a place for their nannies to sleep in on this floor.
The colours in the dining room were much bolder and darker. The furniture was made of a dark wood with a gold finish and the chairs made from bamboo. The dark read curtains and the deep green table cloth contrast well together.
Back to the drawing room, we can see that the walls are a much more innocent yellow and the chairs a pale orange. In the background the large tapestry on the wall really brings the room together. There were many family photos found in the drawing room giving it a homely touch.
Diana’s favourite room and where she spent most of her time was the sitting room. She also used this as her work space and kept all her books in here on white bookshelves. The colours are very feminine with pink and egg blue.
