Regencycore interiors: bring Bridgerton home with Graham & Brown

23 May 2024


“Bridgerton is a drama full of regency style opulent interiors and regal designs. We can take inspiration from properties featured and try and recreate this timeless look in your own home. With season three coming up we are excited to see some wonderful examples of ‘Regencycore’ and regal maximalism at its best. The eclectic mix of influences from around the world has inspired the Regencycore look.

The expanding trade routes of the period have brought us many delights such as chinoiserie design, decorative inlays, damask, and lots and lots of gilding. Trailing floral designs and soft romantic pastel colours will conjure up the Bridgerton aesthetic. Soft shimmering effects and gold highlights will add that feeling of opulent glamour. These particularly work well in a bathroom setting with natural lighting – think candles that will flatter the skin tones. For a contemporary take on the trend, a pastel paint palette of duck egg blue and vintage rose pink will add just the right amount of Marie Antoinette.”

“Rather than modernizing all areas of our homes and starting with a blank slate, we now have a deeper appreciation of historic features thanks to Bridgerton. Extreme maximalism can be something that we find slightly intimidating, so we can make a few changes that give us hints of the Regency style without overwhelming us! When looking at this style we often see high ceilings and grand buildings, but we can recreate this look with some crafty methods, choosing to paint the ceiling in the same colour as the walls gives the impression that the wall continues up into the ceiling making it limitless. We also see panelling a lot in regency design which is an easy way to make plain walls look grander.

To put the final regency stamp on a room we need to see oversized grand works of art, previously only available at great expense, now we offer completely bespoke wall murals, that can be tailored to fit any space, this Turner Crossing the Brook bespoke mural is part of our Tate collection, offering us the opportunity to bring these great works of art into the home. Beautiful murals are also a must for a Regencycore bathroom. Adding decadent scale to any size room a mural adds a focal point when teamed with opulent fixtures. Chinoiserie styled trails and wisteria inspired florals are the obvious subject matter for Bridgerton-esque wall inspiration. Colours are soft and romantic pastel tones, pale green and pink are a classic combination. Counter point these with rich deep shades to create a dramatic effect. Add a clawfoot bathtub, oversized mirrors and plenty of gold accents and you will have a truly decadent space in which to prepare yourself for the next ball!”
