If you’re one of the millions who binged Netflix’s Bridgerton, you know this show has taken the world by storm. But it’s not just the romance, the high society, and the gossip that have made Bridgerton so popular. The show’s design and décor have many looking to transform their own living spaces with elements that are Bridgerton-inspired.
The show features Regency-era decor, which was popular during the British Royal Court of 1813. This style features elegant furniture with sumptuous silks and vertically striped wallpaper, intricate wall moldings, paw-shaped feet on furniture, and floral motifs.
Of course the show paired opulent vintage furnishings with a distinctively contemporary twist. So those craving 19th-century English elegance in their home could redesign to model pieces of Bridgerton high-society style into their homes with a normal budget.
Whether you live in a smaller apartment or a house with a yard and gardens like Daphne and the Duke, here are some Bridgerton-inspired home decor ideas to give your space that Regency feel.
The beautiful, wisteria-draped exterior of Bridgerton House is perhaps the most inspiring exterior of the series. You, too, can give your windows a pop of color by hanging wisteria vines from them. But you don’t have to coax these cascades of blue and purple flowers to hang — even artificial vines will look spectacular from your windows or a pergola.
The easiest way to transform your indoor decor is to add some 19th century-looking frames to hang up some of your favorite photos. The handsome, rich, deep, and ornate frames of the period are, themselves, visually stunning. But, on the contrary, some Bridgerton fans are alternatively decorating their empty walls with embroidery hoops.
If you’re the type to designate a corner space for regal mirror selfies, you’ll want to be sure to incorporate antique furnishings there as well to give your space those Bridgerton vibes. Similar to the framed photos, antique mirrors’ ornate frames, dark edges and distressed patches, can transform a room’s style instantly.
Use antique mirrors in any space that needs a little extra light or a touch more flair. In a home decorated in vintage or Regency style, adding contemporarily placed antique mirrors can fill the space with glamor and make your other accessories do double-duty. We suggest adding them to bedrooms and bathrooms, of course, but living rooms, kitchens, and hallways can benefit from them as well.
Tufted Accent Chairs
Tufted upholstered accent chairs are perfect to sip the tea – or spill it to Lady Whistledown! Velvet is the most opulent and recognizable of Regency-era fabrics, though jacquard is equally popular for accenting your living space with a mix of comfort and style while you read, practice your needlework, or binge-watch Bridgerton of course.
Those looking to transform their spaces with high-society feel might give their bedrooms or living rooms an accent wall with 19th century-style wallpaper. And in truth, this wallpaper suits almost any period property.
Florals are particularly popular, though wide vertical stripes and other bold prints are equally both era- and contemporarily appropriate.
Marquetry tables and furniture with ebonized wood are among the pieces Bridgerton fans are buying from estate sales or purchasing reproduced from modern furniture suppliers.
But the functional piece perhaps most coveted after watching the series is actually a piano!
Whether you’re inspired because you loved the Bridgerton series or just need a bit of fancy to liven up the home you’ve been spending so much time in lately, the playful and fantastic aspect of Regency design is a trend many are currently embracing.
