Old Masters, Remixed

by Georgia Zikas Design

Shortlisted: Residential Project Value £2.5M - £5M Award

The International Design & Architecture Awards 2024

Georgia Zikas Design embarked on a transformative project for discerning art-collecting clients who acquired an 1870s antique home nestled in the picturesque Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The clients, distinguished by their globetrotting adventures and a penchant for art, entrusted Georgia Zikas Design to breathe new life into their historic residence.

The home now stands as a testament to the fusion of timeless elegance and contemporary flair. Adorned with the clients’ personal collection of old master paintings and modern artworks, the space reflects a curated blend of curated furnishings, bespoke wall coverings, and artisan-made rugs. These carefully chosen elements create a harmonious symphony that echoes the clients’ sophisticated taste and love for art.

Noteworthy is the fact that many pieces from the clients’ art collection, typically on loan to renowned museums worldwide, have found a permanent residence within the confines of their Bucks County home. The restoration and renovation efforts were both historically accurate and widely enjoyable, a testament to the trust the clients placed in the expertise of Georgia Zikas Design throughout the entire process.

The interior design seamlessly marries the antique architecture of the 1870s with contemporary furnishings and vibrant textiles, resulting in a space that exudes warmth and functionality. The deliberate juxtaposition of old and new, antiques with modern pieces, creates an inviting atmosphere enriched with colorful details at every turn.

This project was not only an exercise in design prowess but also a journey in understanding and accommodating the diverse preferences of the homeowners. Negotiating the conflicting tastes often found in couples, the design team successfully translated the clients’ desires into a cohesive and satisfying outcome.

Georgia Zikas Design’s meticulous attention to detail and intentional choices at every stage of the project culminated in a passionately crafted living space. Beyond being a home, this Bucks County residence is a historical narrative, appealing to architects, builders, designers, and homeowners alike. The result is an exquisite blend of the past and present, where an 1870s antique home stands proudly, showcasing its rich history in the 21st century.
