Georgiana’s living room is decorated with subtle country style. Channel this homely feel with recycled pieces like the trunk, which makes a fab coffee table. Ask friends and family for any furniture or accessories they no longer use like Georgiana did with her curtains. And don’t be afraid to mix and match furniture, such as different-style sofas and armchairs it will give you a homely eclectic look.
This cabinet makes a pretty addition to Georgiana’s living room. Keep an eye out at car-boot sales or on eBay for an old wooden unit that you can transform with a lick of paint. Add detail to the back panel by pasting on wallpaper for a fresh look. Once complete, use it to display teacups and crockery or your favourite knick knacks.
Georgiana’s neutral kitchen has a modern-country vibe. Choose simple soft-grey units and wooden worktops for a pared-back look. Keep wall units to a minimum and fit tongue and groove panelling as a splashback to help the room appear spacious. To add splashes of colour, pick a patterened blind and invest in bright accessories.
A simple shade of cream on the walls in the dining room keeps the scheme neutral and means the furniture and accessories can be easily changed for a new look. Display a large mirror on a wall like Georgiana has to make your dining space look bigger. When it comes to mood lighting, hang a couple of pendants over your table for meal times. Finish off your dining area with a few patterned cushions popped on chairs.
Georgiana upcycled this second-hand table and gave it a lick of paint to freshen it up. Mix and match chairs for eclectic style in your dining room. Make your own seat pads out of a pretty patterned material and look out for second-hand chairs that can be revamped to match your scheme.
The calming scheme of Georgiana’s bedroom is given a pattern hit with the floral bedspreads. Layer up a bed with bedding, throws and cushions to create a cosy retreat and pick a soothing shade to paint your walls. Recycle old glass jars and bottles and place on a side table with fresh blooms for a pretty touch.
In the spare bedroom, Georgiana revamped the existing twin beds by painting them off-white. Make bunting to hang on your walls out of remnants of fabric and team with patchwork-style cushions. If you’re feeling crafty why not have a go at making your own patchwork cushions.
The bathroom was rather dated when Georgiana moved in so she had it ripped up and this classic white suite fitted. Why not use tongue and groove panelling on the walls for a traditional style bathroom and add colour through bath mats and towels. When choosing your colour scheme pick out an accent colour from a blind or like Georgiana, her stained-glass window and choose accessories to match.
Georgiana transformed her dated bungalow into a home filled with subtle modern-country charm. She filled it with second-hand buys which she revamped to suit her scheme and now it’s a cosy country home.
