Georgian Re-invention

Breathing new life into a period property is not without its challenges but the potential rewards are great. This restoration remains true to the house’s history but, with their individual and innovative choice of furnishings, the current custodians have firmly set their stamp upon this unique home.

Living Room

Georgian Re-invention - Living Room

The easiest way to update a period home is to decorate in a contemporary colour palette: muted autumnal shades of silvery green, blue and brown evoke a feeling of faded grandeur, a subtle nod to the building’s heritage. Rustic materials, such as jute, recycled elm and stonewashed cotton, provide a relaxed look for this living room - a complete contrast to the formal framework. Architectural aspects have been carefully considered, with fluted legs on stools and carved friezes on console tables echoing the intricate decorative details on the cornice.

Dining Room

A simple, round dining table is the focus of this minimal dining room, with a floral centrepiece and carved quatrefoil detailing on the back of the dining chairs providing limited decoration. The cool, pared back colour scheme - blending exposed natural wooden floors with pale shades of grey blue and cream - works well to create an unfussy dining area. Traditional style wall lamps and an open fire help to illuminate the room.

Study

Inspired by gentlemen’s smoking rooms and old-fashioned libraries, this Georgian study (adorned with leather and steel) has been divided to encourage a good work/life balance. Wall-to-wall bookcases provide storage for hoards of books, and a small bar area close to the desk acknowledges the transition from work time to leisure time.

Master Bedroom

Georgian Re-invention - Master Bedroom

The master bedroom is a miscellany of different styles and pieces from various places and eras: a modern Scandinavian-inspired headboard is paired with bohemian Ikat print cushions, and flanked by an Gothick occasional chair. An open fireplace is a fantastic feature to have in a period home; draw attention to it by hanging a large mirror over the mantelpiece, and if lit, dress with a wonderfully ornate fireguard.

Guest Bedroom

Accents of gold bring warmth and a touch of opulence to this Georgian guest bedroom. The delicate greyish-blue colour of the walls also extends to the wooden furniture (a change from the usual neutral finishes), creating a fully co-ordinated scheme.

Breakfast Room

Bursting with colour and full of cheer, a dedicated room for taking a leisurely weekend breakfast will delight both children and adults. A complete colour contrast to the rest of the Georgian interior, the jubilant breakfast room décor uses eclectic striped benches, a rainbow of multi-coloured cushions and fun candy-striped china plates to brighten up many a morning. Skirted chairs and a carved frieze around the dining table add a serious tone to the lively look.
