Elements of Georgian Interior Design
During this time, home interiors tended to be very symmetrical, calm and planned with a clear intent. Quiet colors and intimate spaces were usually featured. Many of the decorations and pieces of furniture were selected contemporarily and thoughtfully.
Walls in Georgian Design
With carved woodwork, the Georgian walls appeared to be decorated and accented. Wallpaper and tapestries were used on walls in some situations, but these appeared to be exceptions instead of the standard. Wall accents should be light and should follow classical types. The Georgian style tone is very subdued and balanced, so it is completely important to avoid clutter on the walls.
Georgian Design Colors
In the Georgian aesthetic, a subdued color palette is essential. Very much in vogue were pale colors such as sage, rose, powder blue, cream, brown, and pea-green. Rich colors such as burgundy were among some earlier examples of the theme. This was not, however, the standard for most of the time. Detailed bucolic murals were also often displayed in the homes of wealthy families.
The furniture tended to feature carved wood, such as velvet or damask, with luxurious upholstery. The typical features of furniture from this period are cabriolet legs and claw feet.
Choose furniture pieces that fit well and have a rather harmonious feel, to recreate a Georgian aesthetic. If you have a fireplace, make it the space’s focal point, symmetrically placing furniture to capture a faithful Georgian theme.
