Decorate With Pilasters -Georgian Interior Decorating Ideas

The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, is a distinctive business and conference venue with breathtaking interiors. Restored and completely modernized, this glorious venue is now open for weddings, events and meetings.

Built in 1864, this building has been restored to seamlessly blend a wealth of historical detail with state-of-the-art facilities and services. There are 9 rooms in total – each perfect for formal events such as weddings, conferences, gala dinners and celebrations alike.

The Graves room is the nicest of all the interiors in the Royal College.  The interior has a spectacular architectural feel bathed in shades of blue.  Most homes cannot handle the sheer size of Georgian-style columns, but smaller scale pilasters (flattened columns) can be used to enhance a room and give it the regal appearance without sacrificing space.  Newly made half-columns, and pilasters are made from pine, poplar, resins, polyurethane, or fibrous plaster which then can then be painted. Consider plaster fluted pilaster molds such as the ones from Contempo Living.   Acanthus wall corbels can also be used to enhance a period styled interior.

Bring out the detail of your architecture by using several shades of the same hue.  We see here a light blue and greens are used in this room.  Using the color wheel, oranges tend to pop against shades of blue, and white is a classic choice for architectural intrigue seen in the statues.  Borrow the looks of this room for your own Georgian house plans.
