This home that I’m sharing today is a completely amazing example of what we were talking about last time. I first saved this beautiful Georgian home maybe seven years ago and I’ve just stumbled across it again today.
It still looks every bit as gorgeous as when I first excitedly discovered it all those years ago.
And that’s a sign worth listening to.
With so many passing fads in an increasingly fast-changing world, how can you know which are the looks that will endure?
Again, my answer is this: by looking back through your archive of hastily torn out pictures from magazines from years back, or your older Pinterest favourites, or wherever it is that you store away precious inspiration images, you’ll find your sense of timeless style coming to the fore.
You’ll find that some aspect won’t excite you any more (there have been some pretty crazy crazes!) but there will be plenty that will. And it’s exactly those elements that you should always try to incorporate into any new project because its those same elements that will continue to excite you in ten, twenty years to come.
So, let’s take this beautiful Georgian home as our example. What is it that still sings out to me today? I love the colour scheme.
Muted naturals have always, always, ALWAYS made me heart stop in its tracks. I can first remember noticing a muted natural in our family tablecloth when I was a very, very little girl. And it’s those same colours that I reach for now because I know that, for me, they stand the test of time.
And please do note that essential “for me” in itallics in the previous paragraph. Taste, lasting taste, is as deeply personal as current fads are ephemeral. You’re looking for the loves of your life, not a dull one-night-stand. We want true and lasting romance, don’t we!?
And, it’ll come as no surprise when I say that I completely adore the carefully curated mix here of Modern and Country styles.
For me, I’ll never tire of Modern Country Style because the Modern aspect keeps shifting as time passes, and the Country aspect just pleases me through and through!
Yes. Modern Country Style runs deeply in my veins!
