Refined antique walnut desk perfect for the Georgian interior
Georgian anitques and interiors can be great for giving your home a uniquely-antique character. Named after English King George I, the style has significantly impacted most of the other interior décor styles. Thus, it sits at the very center of antique and modern home décor. The style combined the rococo as well as Edwardian styles that had come much earlier. So, if you are looking to create a unique Georgian style interior décor, the following are some tips to help you:

The Georgian style utilized toned down colors since modern paints had not been painted. Therefore, interior walls were mostly painted white, grey, pale blue, or olive. Later on, artists used muted yellow, indigo, pink, and red pins. The rooms also had stained or painted doors and wooded skirting. You can reproduce that look in a modern home by going for a more coordinated color scheme.

You can create an authentic Georgian look by installing the more regal floors. It could be parquet, inlaid, or waxed wood. In waxed wood, you can use a complimentary Georgian look to complete the authentic look. That’s because Georgian contemporaries often combined the oriental and neoclassic styles. You could try other elements, including stone or marble floors, neutral, light-colored wallpapers, or patterned carpets.

People in the Georgian era didn’t have the luxury of electricity and modern lighting. They, therefore, used all means to let in as much natural light as possible. It would be easier for you if you have a Georgian home as all you need to do is improve on it. If your home was built much later, then you may change some elements like painting the fireplace white to reflect light into the room. Additionally, you could include wall lanterns (brass, glass, or wood), rococo-style candelabras, and fancy candlesticks. You could also make your windows bigger to let in plenty of natural light.

The television set had not yet been invented during the Georgian period and would look out of place. You can circumvent that particular challenge by using antique cabinets to hold your television set and other electronics. You can then lock the doors of the cabinet to lock away the television set. Alternatively, you could mount the TV set on a wall and place art pieces on the sides. Or, you could use an electronically controlled mirror to hide the TV set.

With Georgian furniture, you can create an authentic look from the past. That’s also the same for the upholstery since it should match existing room color schemes. For example, bare walls would do well with striped fabrics. When it comes to the furniture, you could choose a Georgian-style chaise lounge, chesterfield leather sofas, and so on.
