Period furniture to match Georgian architecture

If you live in a home with Georgian architecture, consider yourself fortunate. Not only are you surrounded by a wonderful sense of history, but your home, a period property, will have style and charm that a modern built house simply cannot replicate.

Antique dealers

Why not add to the theme of the era, immerse yourself in its elegance and fashion and head to the antique dealers? Live, breathe and speak Georgian and think soft, understated colour.

This isn’t about conservation, nor is it just about box sash windows and elegant brickwork features. It’s more than that. It’s about matching the style of your home exterior with the interior.

The Georgians 

Georgians had their own distinct message when it comes to interior decorating. They enjoyed lots of burgundy, sage green and muted blue-greys. These colours may be a world away from the brighter, some might say, glaring colours of today, but they do impart a gentle serenity. Later on in the era, Wedgewood blue made an appearance, together with pea green and dusty pink.

Colour appeal

You can even find these soft, stylish colours listed on the charts and product catalogues of many leading paint manufacturers and no-one is going to think you have odd taste. Retrofit is popular today, both outside with things like sash window repair, and inside with interior design, wooden flooring and Oriental rugs.

Old windows

It’s a good idea to take a look at any window restoration you may need whilst you are sprucing up the inside. There are lots of things you can do now to renovate sash windows without destroying them. Sympathetic improvements will keep the Georgian feel intact, to match both exterior and interior design. Sash window revival has also become a popular trend, maintaining the historical features, whilst keeping you cosy.
