Then again, Prince wasn't in his bedroom as often as most of us, probably. He likely slept somewhere else most of the time.


Where was he sleeping? In a tent on Lake Minnetonka?

What’s in the other room with the rainbow ceiling?


I think it's possibly one of the skylight pyramids just painted on the inside.



Is it the elusive 7th pyramid, or is this one already known?

The bed posts are fuzzy - like those boots of his. Looks cozy to me. I like the cheesy hipster mirrors and gigantic windows. It looks fun. The whole thing reminds me of Barbarella meets Slaughterhouse-Five at the end when he's in the pod with Valerie Perrine. I dig it.

Would it be safe to say that his office was located on the first floor, towards the back, facing the Egg? Also, his bedroom was on the second floor facing the back of PP? I'm going by what the windows show on the outside. These area's are not part of the tour, right?


The bedroom is not part of the tour, no. The egg is to the east. But your theory could be right. IF that rainbow pointed thing is a pyramid skylight, the one bigger one in the back (not in the atrium) south of the egg on the east side.

Also, through the window you can see part of the building from inside, which makes me think this area is up from and includes that back pyramid skylight on the east side facing the egg.

However, you can see a road behind the trees in the 2nd photo. There is no road like that behind PP, which means he either faced west or north toward Audobon or Atrium Roads. You wouldn't see a road that close looking out the east side. You could further down, but the egg would also block the view.



I think the road out the window is the service road upto the pyramid. His room is clearly under the east rear pyramid, above the entrance to the piano room.

the 'other room' you see on the far wall, with the rainbow on the ceiling, is actually a mirror!

in the vids on the vogue instagram you get glimpses of the entire room and the ceiling above
the room has a huge rectangular alcove (?) that is painted with the rainbow all around.

so in the reflected image in the mirror it looks a lot smaller.

Yeah, that's ultimately my thought, too.

Yeah, you're right. The rainbow in the back is a reflection of the ceiling in the bed area. It seems his bed area was actually in the pyramid area at the back of Paisley Park, and extended up the side of the building. The bedroom is rather non-descript, actually. Sorta plain, bits of whatever here or there, but no real cohesive feel or layout. Yet as someone mentioned, it's so him.

That bed is still horrid. lol

Anyone know when the rainbow was painted? Is it tied to something else or Prince just wanted a rainbow on his ceiling?

Those flowers in the hall on the floor and in another area, I believe, are from the Lovesexy tour. At the beginning of the second act, when everyone is being 'created' or 'born again', Cat dances around the stage. Flowers pop up around the perimeter of the stage, almost like the garden of Eden being created. That's what those flowers are from. Which shows Prince really did keep everything.

I wonder if he doesn't have that basketball hoop and swing set somewhere in storage, too.

Very cool article and great pics! Thanks for posting! That bed though...

On the table with kid/family photos, aside from the pic of Yara as a child, does anyone have any clue who the other photos are of?

The room looks so different now. Kinda sad. I think the last time we got a glimpse of it was in the 1995 Love 4 One Another special and before that was the Omnibus show.

This feels wrong.

Am interested in performance videos and audio, studio recordings. Not pictures of his bed.

Ya. It's weird. I admit to being completely curious and a voyeur of sorts with these photos. Everything seems so sterile, even with the ornate adornments. Nothing at all like I've imagined in my mind all these years. I guess some things are better left to the imagination .

cool bedroom and i heart that bed! if i recall when you read the statements, you'll see that his living quarters are described as being at the 'front' of the building, while the rooms dedicated to music and etc. were at the 'back' of the building.

That bed is so tacky and yet...so him. touched

Also, it is terrible feng shui to have a mirror reflecting the bed. A mirrored headboard? shake

Mirrors overlooking beds have other uses of course. I’m not sure that feng shui was at the forefront of his thinking here. smile

Totally. Yes it’s interesting to see behind the scenes of PP but his bedroom? Feels wrong to me. And his photographer/friend as well.

Agreed. It is also featured prominently in the Gangster Glam video.

They are in an office area with a larger desk, and a meeting area, but it wasn't this bedroom.

And any other bedroom featured in those videos was in the Galpin house, not Paisley Park (like the dining room area, the hallway, etc.)

I'm 100% sure. Watch closely. You'll see the two square windows that are now on the wall with the bed. To the right you'll see the two narrower windows - the one on the left is a regular window and the one on the right goes down to the floor because it's actually a door to the outside. Now go look at Paisley Park and look at on Google maps in 3D. You'll the door I'm talking about - it goes to that small roof/patio area. In the Gangster Glam video, you'll see the bed 90 degrees to the left - on the right side of the bed is the window that faces towards Audobon Road and on the left is the door with the stained glass. It's the same room - the bed is just positioned different and there's been some remodeling. For example, the old closet door in the corner has been replaced with a normal door now and they've put crown molding around it. Other than that, it's the same room but with the drapes added and the rainbow painting to the skylight.
