Here at Sofas & Stuff we love working with Georgina Gibson and her clients to create beautiful bespoke furniture for their homes. Amidst the preparations for her interior design fair, Under One Roof, which will be taking place in Storrington on 21st to 22nd June, we sat down with Georgina to get her top tips on adding character to your home.

First established in 2005, Georgina Gibson and her team have been creating heartfelt interiors projects that are not only beautiful, but also perfectly tailored to suit her clients. With a design studio based in the historic town of Lewes,  Georgina’s projects span across London, the South East and beyond.

Creating a characterful home

Adopt a sense of calm

Bring the outside in with beautiful wallpapers featuring tree and leaf patterns to evoke a sense of nature’s calm and tranquillity. Using these prints can create unexpected impact in more compact spaces, such as small bathrooms and studies.

Fill the home with flowers

Nothing embodies summer in the home more than fresh blooms in a riot of colours. We love a tablescape made of mismatched vintage vessels filled with zinnia, dahlias or gloriously scented sweet peas, or just a simple linen runner and a beautiful vase of flowers.

Introduce vibrant greens

Green, in all of its stunning shades, is very on trend this season. A new vanity in a glorious grass green dramatically transformed this bathroom shown below, and works so well with brass fittings to give that extra detail.

Mix the old with the new

We love mixing up finishes. Incorporate vintage furniture and accessories with natural materials and industrial looking fittings to create a truly eclectic interior look.

Embrace floral prints

A floral pattern makes any home feel summery.  Go all out and wallpaper all the walls and ceiling in a whimsical floral, with matching fabric for your soft furnishings. If you’d prefer to adopt this trend with more of a minimalist look, you can just add touches with a striking floral fabric on an occasional chair. We have a wide range of floral fabrics, which you can browse here.

Make an entrance

Welcome your guests with a dramatic entrance to your home. Choose vivid and unexpected colours, and a striking print to create an element of surprise.

Bring warmer tones into your home

Embrace peach fuzz, Pantone’s colour of the year, a gentle mix of pink and orange to bring warmth and sunshine into your home. Peaches and cream are always a classic combination, but pops of a cooler accent colour such as minty green in your accessories works wonderfully well to bring everything to life.
