The Green Sitting Room by The Royal Household


This room provided an insight into how restoration and interior schemes are produced within the Royal Household. Edward Griffiths, Deputy Master of the Royal Household, has created a Sitting Room to a Suite, decorated in a classical and more formal country house style and set in a Royal Residence with a view through the window of the Long Walk at Windsor. Through the design process, mood boards of the proposed scheme were submitted to The Queen for approval. Consultation with the restoration studios and the Royal Collection Trust defined the scope of furniture restoration and pictures to compliment the scheme.

Craft making and conservation-restoration work was undertaken in the Master of the Household's 'C' Branch workshops at Windsor Castle, under the supervision of Adrian Smith, where traditional skills of cabinet making, French polishing, gilding and upholstery of furniture and soft furnishing are coupled with conservation techniques in order to maintain the working life of important historic interiors. This work is supported by Royal Warrant Holding companies who supply the decorative and consumable materials.
