Disclaimer: Much of what will be covered in this workshop was presented by Cheryl Bolen at the 2015 Beau Monde Conference in New York.

The Georgians, heavily influenced by classicism, revolutionized English interiors. Light and elegant replaced dark and heavy. England was the wealthiest nation in the world, and men came back from the Grand Tour to build and furnish homes that are as appreciated today as they were more than two centuries ago.

This course will describe Georgian interiors from neatly terraced townhouses to sprawling country mansions of 300 rooms. We will examine floor plans of country and city houses and will look at how they were furnished. This will include a survey of furnishings, art works, fine porcelain, and other interior accessories that would have been found in the homes of the upper classes.

A former teacher, former journalist and current New York Times bestselling author of two dozen romance novels set in Regency England, Cheryl Bolen will be drawing on material gathered on her frequent trips to England. She has toured more than 30 stately homes, and she and her professor husband are the authors of England’s Stately Homes by Train.


Upcoming Classes in 2016:

Regency Dance and the English Ballroom with Cara King
Mind of the Regency Gentleman with Bill Haggart
Regency Theatre with Margaret Evans Porter
