Step inside the elegant Georgian home



Natural coir carpet, its edges bound by linen, complements the original encaustic tiles in the hallway.


Morning room

Distressed white painted furniture is teamed with red gingham and stripy ticking fabric for a charming country feel. Rustic brick flooring adds to the traditional feel. The dresser in this morning room houses stacks of books and other household paraphernalia. 


Dining room

A cream painted dresser matches the dining furniture in this charming room, and red accents are introduced on the chair fabric and blind to add interest and warmth to the pale scheme.



Hand-built painted units are teamed with a rustic wooden worktop for a rustic feel, while vintage metal letters and a butlers sink give the room a distinctive French-country look.


Living room

For this square-shaped room, the owners commissioned a pair of sofas to fit alongside the French-style furniture. 


Dining room

The neutral backdrop of this formal dining room is lifted by coloured and textured accessories, such as the artwork above the fireplace.


Guest bedroom

Rich layers of linen, velvet, plain and floral fabrics give this bedroom an inviting feel.



The vast six-foot square sleigh bed is the only large piece of dark wood furniture in the house, playing to the French feel that the owners wanted to achieve.
