The Countess’ Elegant Rooms

Early 18th century

The Countess’ Elegant Rooms show her accommodation at the manor as it could have looked in the early 18th century. The interior decoration is inspired by the young noble couple Count Christen Scheel and Augusta Wintereldt, who came to live at Gammel Estrup in 1717 and refurbished the place in the fashion of the times.

The rooms are decorated in the richly-coloured aesthetic style of the baroque, with magnificent tapestries, stucco ceilings, painted floors and decorated panels and doors. Together with their exclusive furnishings, they demonstrate the Scheel family’s position as one of Denmark’s leading families of the time.

The rooms include: The Countess’ bedchamber ‘The Red Bedroom’ with its impressive bed of state, The Cabinet by the Red Bedroom where the countess was dressed and had her hair powdered, The Room of the Lady’s Maid, where the countess’ personal maid lived, and the Countess’ Chamber, where important guests were served tea and perhaps played a game of cards.
