    The golden colour on the ceiling is gold leaf, which is applied by hand. Kind regards, OB

Balance it out. Lovers of symmetrical, considered design can shake up their seating with a more tailored approach and a bit of matching. This pair of plush button-backed chesterfields in an earthy hue is juxtaposed with two jet-black armchairs for a sense of poise and equilibrium but masses of drama, too. The balanced arrangement of seating echoes the balanced layout of the room, allowing the burnished gold ceiling to pull together the look with aplomb.

Proportions. Georgian architecture is often described as being Palladian in style. This means it was influenced by Italian architect Andrea Palladio’s reinterpretation of ancient Greek and Roman architecture. Palladio’s buildings were characterized by understated elegance, subtle decoration and strict use of classical proportions. “In Georgian times, the classical lessons of proportioning were tremendously important. That’s why their buildings are so beautifully proportioned, with such lovely high ceilings,” says Hugo Tugman. Everything from the height of the baseboard and its relation to the size of the cornice was carefully calculated. “The proportioning systems don’t tell you how to design, but rather give you the tools with which to design,” Tugman says.

For now, serve up something fresh and organic, White House- veggie-garden style. We’ll update snack suggestions when we see what the secretary likes. Stay tuned …
