Chic, yet cozy. An array of hues, but subtle in their presentation.
Georgina Cave is the founder of Cave Interiors based in the UK, and I have to say, she would be a dream interior designer to have the good fortune to work with. Working with high end clients around the world, this fully redecorated East Sussex Georgian home has been transformed into a beckoning sanctuary.
What I appreciate most about the space is that it could easily have been decorated in such a way that would not have charm or character as there are few historical architectural details; however, Cave reveals that with careful attention to the colour one is using, a home can magically behold a period charm without looking stuffy or dated.
- The iconic English deeply stuffed sofas begging to be sat upon – paired up in two different rooms
- The crown molding elevates the space to a subtle regal aesthetic
- The grass and raffia baskets and details that are functional as well as decorative
- The mud room is not ignored and includes creative organizational features as well as a beautiful undercounter sink.
- Using unique tile for a signature look in the master bath for both the walk-in shower and the clawfoot tub – functional and beautiful.
- The layering of different gradients of a single hue to add depth to a room or decor idea. The bathroom in particular demonstrates this well.
Spacious and light, but gently warm as well, this Georgian house would be easy to call home. I have chosen the rooms that caught my eye, but be sure to tour the entire home – exterior as well here.
