Season 2 of the record-breaking Netflix Series, Bridgerton, aired today and we have to admit we have fallen in love with the characters, storylines and more importantly the estates!
Based on the bestselling novels by Julia Quinn, the show follows the Bridgerton family as the eldest daughter and son search for suitors and even love in Regency London’s competitive marriage market. Setting storylines and spoilers aside for the moment we’d like to draw your attention to our first love, property, and this show has been filmed in some seriously impressive locations.
No 1 Royal Crescent, The Ranger’s House, Lancaster House and Hampton Court Palace are all locations that have inspired a new trend of interiors aptly named Regencycore. You don’t have to be a period drama connoisseur to appreciate the Regency Interiors featured in the show and how you can use this style in your home.
Spring usually features more of a neutral pastel palette but shades of bold blues, pinks and greens give a nod to Bridgerton’s romantic and whimsical aesthetic as well as add a royal touch to your home.
Used in entrance hallways and bathrooms, traditional black and white checkered floors are a timeless addition to any style of property. If you’re looking for something a little less bold consider using greys and whites to achieve the look that will also complement the rest of your home’s décor.
Textured or floral wallpaper can be used in any room, opt for a feature wall if you simply want to make an impact or change the whole feel of a room using a bold or floral print. Paired with vintage accessories or even modern touches can create a whole new look for any room.
Forget about minimalist designs there has been a resurgence of ornamental gold and brass mirrors with intricate detailing this year. Play around with the shape and size of your chosen mirror to fit your space above fireplaces or shelves to add a sense of grandeur and sophistication.
Wainscoting is a type of panelling that lines a room for decorative purposes. Seen throughout the stunning estates featured in the show, panelling is a trend that is commonly used in hallways, staircases and living rooms. There are many “how-to” videos online that may entice you into attempting this style on your own but be aware this budget-friendly option can often look less than effective.
Next time you sit to binge-watch your favourite period drama try to take in the regency style interiors and consider using them in your own home as well as enjoy the Bridgerton’s family dramas and Lady Whistledown’s high society scandal sheet of course.
