Georgian Foyer

This traditional Georgian foyer has been redefined with a breath of new life by complimenting today’s lifestyle.

Georgian homes tend to be very robust, segregated but grand, which in itself is its charm. Meyer & Meyer have transformed this lovely house into a bright, welcoming and stylish stately home.

White wall paneling has taken the home fashion by storm. The articulation of the combined dentil style crown moulding, chair rail and top panels when painted in the same colour as the walls adds a 3 dimensional quality that plays with the light and shadows throughout the day.

The original sleek curvilinear black lead work on the glazing is nothing short of craftsmanship.

Softening the space is a quasi-floral geometric rug in a refreshing yellow. The high back light grey sette gives a modern twist on the Queen Anne Wing backed chair and over-sized tripod lamp both work beautifully to offset the geometic patterning of the space.

Overall this small space speaks volumes for the design inspirations of the remainder of this house. The design enables and encourages the antiquity of the space to come through in a new light. I believe it is successful due to that it is sensitive the original character of the house but still updates it with a modern scheme.
