In the world of Bridgerton, we see a lot of colors, unique patterns, luxurious fabrics and flashy accessories. While ordinary people wore simple white or dark garments, color was a luxury reserved for the wealthy, both in clothes and home decor. The show brings that luxury to life, making us all wish we could dress and live like the Ton of Regency London.

What is Regency-inspired decor?

The Regency aesthetic we see in the show is about luxury and opulence. Everything from furniture, wallpapers and decorations to carpets, window coverings and staircases is ornate and meticulous. The interiors are sophisticated and royal, while the color palette is subdued and romantic.

Recreate the Bridgerton aesthetic by incorporating classic chandeliers, flowing drapery, regal patterns and fabrics, ornate mirrors and damask wallpaper. Gold and brass are heavily present everywhere, including candelabras and ornate frames of large paintings and mirrors. Large, elaborate carpets are also heavily used on the set.

If this look feels over the top for you, consider adding small design elements without changing your whole space. That way, you can enjoy the style without feeling overwhelmed.

Tips for Bridgerton-inspired interiors

Here are some key elements to incorporate into your home to create that perfect Regency-style look straight from the Bridgerton set.

Opt for pastel hues and earthy tones

One of the most defining aspects of the Bridgerton series is its use of color. Pastel hues are everywhere, from the walls to the clothing. We see a lot of soft pastels used in the family's home, including cream, subdued gold and the iconic Wedgewood blue.

This delicate pale color, derived from the classic 18th-century Jasperware by Wedgwood pottery, is the Bridgerton family's signature color. This color was rare and hard to find during the Regency era. Wealthy families highly valued it, and its rarity made it iconic.

Lady Danbury's house features a more narrow color palette that is a mix of dusty pink, peach and purple. We also see a lot of gold trim and flourishes. In contrast, the Featherington home's color palette leans toward green, with shades ranging from lime green to olive.

To implement a Regency-inspired look in your own home, start by incorporating some pastel colors into your decor. Paint an accent wall in a light blue or green, or add some floral curtains in a pale pink, lavender or blush hue. You can also find small touches like vases and throw pillows in pastels to help tie the look together.

Consider adding wallpaper

Another way to permanently incorporate this look into your home is by adding some wallpaper. This can be anything from a simple floral pattern to an intricate damask design. Wallpaper is a great way to add color and texture to any room, and it's a perfect homage to the Regency style.

You can find wallpaper in various colors and styles to suit your taste. Try wallpaper with a bright and colorful pattern if you want something bold. Or, if you prefer something more subtle, opt for wallpaper with a classic damask or stripe design.

Wallpaper is also a great way to create an accent wall if you're not comfortable with doing the whole room. You can mix wallpaper with modern elements and complementary colors to create a more balanced and cohesive aesthetic.

Add antique and hand-crafted pieces

One of the hallmarks of the Regency style is an antique feel, so try adding some vintage-inspired furniture to your space. Look for pieces with ornate details and rich wood finishes. This could be anything from an heirloom table to a set of China passed down from your grandparents.

Antique furniture and decor can add a touch of elegance to any space. During the Regency era, everything was hand-made and was built to last. Incorporate well-crafted wooden pieces in classic finishes like mahogany or cherry to recreate that look. Look for craftsmanship pieces like tables and chairs to add unique and vintage elements to your design.

You can also add beautiful artisanal accents like clocks, paintings and vases. A few well-placed pieces can make a room feel like it's been transported to a different time. If you don't have any antiques in your family, you can find vintage pieces at local thrift stores or online marketplaces.

Alternatively, you can paint vases with simple paint to give them that vintage look using white or light brown colors. Even a simple glass bottle can become a vase if painted and decorated the right way.

Choose luxurious fabrics and patterns

Another way to recreate Bridgerton-inspired decor is by incorporating some opulent materials into your space. Rich fabrics like velvet and satin are perfect for adding a touch of luxury. It's the ideal material for creating a luxurious feel in any room using velvet sofas, chairs or pillows.

You can also create elegance with Regency-style window coverings using thick fabrics with tasseled tiebacks. Floor-to-ceiling curtains were all the rage in the Regency era, and they can add a touch of luxury to any room. If you don't want to go all out, try hanging drapes on either side of a window or across an archway.

Floral, damask and paisley patterns were trendy at that time, and so was using flowers as accents. Look for fabrics with pastel hues that you can incorporate into upholstery, accessories, drapes and wallpaper. You can also add some patterns and textures to carpets and rugs. Vintage-inspired Oriental rugs are also an excellent option for this look.

Incorporate ornate mirrors and frames

Mirrors were a must-have in the Regency era, and they can add a touch of glamour to any room. You can incorporate ornate mirrors and frames into your decor. This can be anything from a gilded mirror to an antique frame. Mirrors are a great way to add light and depth to any room, and they're also a perfect way to get that Regency look.

You can find mirrors and frames in various colors and styles to suit your taste. Try a mirror with a gold or brass frame if you want something bold. Or, if you prefer something more subtle, opt for an antique frame with a classic design.

Use decadent lighting

Chandeliers and sconces can add that Regency-inspired high-society elegance to your decor. They are sure to make a statement in your home. While the chandeliers used in the show might not fit in your average home today, you can still go for a scaled-down version to create an elegant light source that adds a touch of luxury.

Add some greenery to your space

One thing that makes Bridgerton so visually stunning is all of the greenery incorporated into the decor. There is no shortage of green space in the show, from potted plants to lush gardens.
