About Georgian Architecture

The Georgian style, and its American counterpart the Federal style, defined the architecture of official colonial government buildings and those of the new republic. The Georgian style is derived from the neoclassical and refers to work built during the reigns of George I, II, and III of England.

Georgian Style Mouldings

Georgian Mouldings are typically composed using the ogee, fillet, ovolo, bead and quirk, and the other molding profiles of classical architecture. It's proportions and mouldings are more grand than the "Colonial" and typically include finer details. In the examples shown, the proportions of the cornice differ depending upon the height of the ceiling and whether or not there is a dado or chair rail in the room.

Unless a room is fully paneled and left unpainted, Georgian style mouldings are typically painted, while the doors are typically stained, and often engineered with exotic tropical hardwood veneers. Frequently, doors might be painted with faux bois - or wood grained, when the more expensive and authentic product was not available or affordable.
