House to Home featured an updated Georgian styled home with a few modern touches.

The Georgian period took place between 1714 to 1837 and is often divided into early, mid and late Georgian period.

As the style changed and the century moved on lighter colors emerged. Colors were pale and subtle. Creams, sage, pea green, powder blue became extremely popular. In grander houses, gold and murals were the preferred wall coverings.

Interiors became a point of interest as print books detailed design and architectural examples which fueled the education into what design was all about.

Early Georgian style was the tail-end of Queen Anne design, and the lines went from curvy to gradually more severe. Severe lines and classic architectural details moved design away from the gentle curves of Queen Anne design to those more seen in Palladian, Rococo and Neo-Classic design. Architecture style was copied from Ancient Greece and Rome.

Borrow ideas from this country style home.  Here we see a subtle approach to decorating.  Colors are soft, upholstery is neutral, and living seems simple.
