Royal color palettes to celebrate the platinum jubilee

Royal color palettes to celebrate the platinum jubilee

Who doesn’t want to live in a home that makes you feel like royalty? Choose a color pallet for your next interior design project is one of the best parts of redecorating. We love to comb through color swatches and see how different hues make us feeland if the goal is to feel like one Princess, these 10 color palettes have you covered. The Megastore roof recently revealed the color palettes of some of the world’s most beautiful castles and palaces, and we’re living for that. Before Queen Elizabeth II celebrates it Platinum Jubileewe feel particularly obsessed with all things royal, from traditional english recipes to these majestic designs.


Buckingham Palace — London, United Kingdom

The official London residence of the British Royal Family since 1837, Buckingham Palace is one of the most famous buildings of its kind in the world. With over 50,000 visitors coming to the palace each year, it is a well-known mainstay of royal life.

The palace’s color palette is rich, warm and welcoming, echoing motifs from the Baroque and Rococo periods. With shades ranging from burgundy to mustard to a muted grey-blue, the bedroom is the epitome of upscale taste and class, but with an inviting edge.

u200bWindsor Castle

Windsor Castle — Windsor, United Kingdom

Windsor Castle brightens things up with shades of emerald green, pink and purple, pops of orange and tons of gold. Located just 20 miles from Buckingham Palace, it’s another staple property of the British Royal Family (Prince Harry and Meghan’s son Archie had his christening photos taken here). The color palette is both regal and eye-catching.

u200bPrague Castle

Prague Castle — Prague, Czech Republic

Prague has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and Prague Castle is a perfect example of why it deserves that reputation. The building’s muted tones conjure up images of angels, art, and historic grandeur all at once, with a range of neutrals including creams, grays, golds, and hints of blue.

u200bMysore Palace

Mysore Palace – Mysore, India

Enveloping a sprawling 72 acres, Mysore Palace is India’s second most visited destination (surpassed only by the Taj Mahal, of course). Its stunning range of hues are exactly what you would expect from a country as rich in beauty and color as India – turquoises, purples, burgundy and emerald greens sit alongside golds and yellows, creating an aura of incredible drama and elegance.

u200bKensington Palace

Kensington Palace — London, United Kingdom

Back in the UK, Kensington Palace – the place Prince William, Kate and their children call home – is both grand and welcoming (if you’re a royal, anyway) . Princess Diana also lived here, perhaps preferring the palace’s more neutral palette to other options in the royal property portfolio. Grey-blues and golds make up the majority of the color palette, with some warm browns and neutral taupes. The result is majestic, clever and (dare we say it?) comfortable.

u200bThe Forbidden City

The Forbidden City – Beijing, China

A Chinese imperial palace between 1420 and 1912, the Forbidden City consists of 980 buildings (and you thought it was hard to decorate ONE!), over 8,800 rooms and 178 acres. The palace’s color palette includes a range of stunning hues, including pale blues, muted mauves, rich reds, browns and taupes, making it a truly unforgettable destination.

Dublin Castle

Dublin Castle — Dublin, Ireland

You would be wrong to forget the many castles dotted across Ireland, just across the Irish Sea from England and Wales. Dublin Castle in particular has a remarkable history and beauty, which reflects Ireland’s courage and perseverance throughout the conflicts with the Vikings and the English. Built on a 13th century Viking settlement, the palace was once the seat of the ruling administration in England. In 1922, when Ireland gained independence from Britain, the building was returned to the Irish.

The palette, as you might expect, is rich in shades of green, ranging from moss to kelly to emerald. It also features hints of red-pink, burgundy and cream.

u200bPitti Palace

Palazzo Pitti — Florence, Italy

Let’s go back to continental Europe, and to one of the most beautiful cities in the world: Florence. The Palazzo Pitti is home to world-renowned works of art, stunning architecture and a rich history dating back to the prominence of the Medici family during the Renaissance era. Its color palette ranges from deep browns to pale blues, golds, reds and everything in between, creating an opulent and quintessentially Italian interior.

Castle of Versailles

Palace of Versailles — Versailles, France

The opulence of the Palace of Versailles is unrivaled and is an enduring example of French Baroque architecture. As one of the most famous royal castles in France, the palace has hosted many royal parties or events over the years. With a color palette centered around varying shades and tones of gray and gold, it is both elegant and extravagant.

Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace — London, United Kingdom

We’ll end this trip in the world’s most famous palaces in the UK – and indeed, in London. Hampton Court Palace is another gem of the Baroque era and was where King Henry VIII and his six wives (if you know, you know) made their home. The palette is rich in color thanks to the abundance of art that fills the rooms, and tones range from navy and sky blue to buttery yellow and bright orange.
