Georgian interiors are extremely easy to achieve, especially if you know the things to include in it. Yet it isn’t difficult to pull off a Georgian interior. All you need is to combine striking color palettes with harmonious symmetry to get an exquisite, classical style. It will take you back to a late 17th century home when Britain was undergoing fast industrial and social change. Here are some tips to help you attain a Georgian interior:
1. Refined Furniture

One of the defining characteristics of Georgian interiors is the use of refined, less chunky furniture. For example, you may use upholstered or bare timber furniture while striking a balance between contemporary and solid pieces of furniture. There is nothing wrong with buying Georgian antique furniture but you could achieve the same results using furniture pieces with curves. The idea is to make the room less modern and more elegant.
2. Extravagant Textures

The Georgian style is mostly defined by rich texture elements as seen in luxurious fabric textures (like thick weave fabrics and velvet). Not only does that give the room a classical feel but also luxurious. While at it, avoid linen fabrics as they may bring out a more coastal feel. Where possible, use fabrics with geometrical patterns (not floral). Apart from being minimalist, the patterns should feature mild (not bold) colors.
3. Mild Colors

No need for you to use bold, shouting colors when making Georgian interiors. Rather, you should use traditional colors like black and white with a little brown. In that case, you paint the walls black and white and keep the floor in its original warm brown timber color. While you can play around with color, you should choose those that are too bright. Interior designers recommend burgundy blue, navy blue, and Wedgewood blue. You could also implement gold tones as well as mustards.
4. Subtle Accents

The whole idea behind Georgian interiors is to achieve classical opulence. Some of the best accents include chrome or brass accessories that work to bring out a Georgian interior. You should look for something relevant to the style to create a sense of harmony. You may also accessorize with decorative lighting like chandeliers but without crystal. Or, you may use timber paneling such as paneled cabinetry in the kitchen to create a warm tone.
5. Cleverly Breaking Up Space
Apart from obvious geometric figures, Georgian interiors set out to achieve symmetry. One way you can ensure that is through the use of deluxe moldings for an angular feel. So, make use of paneling, molding, or cornices to create a sense of balance in your room. It’s all about doing something (albeit small) to break up space inside your home. While you do not need anything overly ornate, you should ensure it is elegant and with a more traditional feel.
