What if Buckingham Place had an internal makeover?

Team from David Wilson Homes offers five very different White Drawing Rooms

Time to take a break from this overdose of Christmas cheer, I think. The following pictures found their way into my in-box the other day and I thought I would share.

Ever wondered what Buckingham Palace would look like with modern interior? Wonder no more…

The team at new home builder David Wilson Homes – part of the Barratt Homes plc group – has reimagined one of the most iconic rooms in Buckingham Palace, The White Drawing Room – where the Queen broadcasts her Christmas speech – into five modern and quirky interior design styles.

From the famous Scandi minimalism to a botanical house plant heaven and even a futuristic glimpse; you can view the interior renders here with more detailed explanations. 

Buckingham Palace will undergo a £369 million refurbishment to electrics and plumbing over the coming years, but, as far as we know, there are no plans to change or update the interiors.

Would any of these get royal approval, we wonder? Do you have a personal preference? I like the Art Deco and Botanical looks.
