Edwardian / Georgian

This look is all about coordination! These styles rely on straight lines, symmetry & finesse to achieve a beautiful clean look. Being inspired by ancient architecture with a decorative focus on walls will help achieve this look.

 

Edwardian style homes date back to the 1890s to 1920s and are typically described as a revival of the Georgian style. Georgian homes are typical for the period 1720 to 1860s.

Georgian style homes are formal and showcase fine details and straight lines. Symmetry and simplicity in design achieved an elegant and light touch. Neoclassical (Roman and Greek) and Rococo (French curve and cockleshell style) architecture inspired many interiors which included columns, marble, stonework and classical figures.

Characteristics of an Edwardian style home include terracotta tiled roof, asymmetrical roof lines, gable and motifs, leadlight windows, high ceilings, plasterwork, ceiling roses, finials and brackets, red-brown brickwork, decorative timber verandahs and timber fretwork. Timber mouldings became more sleek and started to move away from the heavily decorated Victorian style. More flat areas on the profiles and a reduction of large curves was seen during this era, with an increase in the popularity of lambs tongue design.

Skirting boards, chair rail and picture rail are typical of these styles with textiles & tapestries hung as features. Intricate, cloth textured or oriental wall paper, prints and gold accents were applied directly to walls, while the colour schemes focused on muted shades of off whites, olive, pale blue, yellow, red, pink, turquoise and indigo. Timber mouldings were stained or painted in similar colour tones and furnishings blended perfectly with the walls. Furniture was large, masculine and bold but each room remained uncluttered. Furniture was crafted in dark wood with distinctive ‘claw and ball’ feet or ‘scrolled arm’ sofas and chairs. Flooring was regal parquet, waxed wood or inlaid commonly with stencilled patterns. Curtains were impressive but not fussy, predominantly with stripe or floral detail.
