A spokesman for the company, which is part of Barratt Homes PLC, said: ‘Ever wondered what Buckingham Palace would look like with modern interior? Wonder no more.

‘The team at new home builder David Wilson Homes have reimagined one of the most iconic rooms in Buckingham Palace, The White Drawing Room – where the Queen is known to broadcast 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.’

The first option is called ‘Art Deco Indulgence’, with the 1920s and 30s style making a huge comeback recently as a symbol of glamour and sophistication. The room idea makes use of bold colours, velvety textures and geometric prints.
