Scandinavian interior design chic meets Georgian grandeur:
A bold living area

The brief

The standout space of this home, with huge sash windows, stunning proportions, and Georgian features. With three interconnecting spaces, my client wanted to create a dual-purpose, contemporary interior design space for relaxation and entertainment.

The solution

Merging timeless Georgian architecture with sleek Modern Scandinavian design, my approach was a confident fusion of bold aesthetics.

We defined the spaces as living room, TV room and bar (see separate case study for the bar) and I devised a scheme to flow through each room, using subtle colour transitioning with accessories and finishes. The space had already been decorated to a high standard by the developer in a neutral colour, which I felt suited it. My vision was to work with this and add colour and shape with furniture and accessories.

Sheer curtains that gently pool on the floor were used to frame the stunning sash windows, ensuring light floods in and the beautiful views are not compromised. Furniture of scale was used to complement the proportions. Large rugs soften areas around sofas. Materials such as oak and marble were chosen to complement the existing finishes in the rooms. With large wall spaces, art was a key feature. I chose Wintry etchings to reflect my client’s love of skiing and commissioned a local digital artist to create an oversized set of their pieces. Everything was bespoke framed to fit the scheme.

Finally, I styled the spaces with contemporary accessories, books, cushions, lighting, and planting. The result is a suite of spaces that confidently marry Georgian grandeur with modern pieces—a perfect place for intimate gatherings in addition to everyday living.
