The Ruggable Team
1. Storybook Chic
Regency-inspired wallpaper prints and pastel hues are key to channeling the Bridgerton aesthetic. Just look at how a delicate design can transform a space and create depth, even in a small area like this hallway. To maximize it even more, this designer added a hallway runner that mirrors the neutral tones of the nature-inspired wallpaper.
2. Sumptuous Sophistication
If you want your bedroom to look like it’s pulled straight out of the Bridgerton estate, feast your eyes on this luxurious design that brilliantly fuses antique-inspired pieces with modern ones. For example: This space features an elaborate blue Persian-style rug and opulent chandelier mixed with more up-to-date pieces, like the modular furnishings and a touch of greenery.
3. Youthfully Unique
Committing to the Regencycore aesthetic doesn’t have to mean sacrificing a youthful vibe. If you’re looking for Bridgerton decor ideas that infuse on-trend elements of today, study this exquisite living room that’s rich in color and texture. It’s complete with a velvet couch dressed in throw pillows to match the nature-inspired wallpaper and a cream-colored Persian-style rug that complements the space and adds an extra layer of depth.
4. Ornante Opulence
Nothing says Regencycore quite like a dressing table that would make even Daphne Bridgerton, herself jealous. We love how this setup boasts an ornate vintage mirror, a pop of pink flowers, and a skirted chair that looks like it could have been plucked out of another era. And finally, this designer’s choice of a navy blue floral rug is the perfect addition, as it contrasts beautifully with the space’s predominantly light tones.
5. Eclectic Elegance
Behold: an eclectic take on the Bridgerton decor trend. This bedroom undeniably takes influence from Regency style, but it’s clear the designer wasn’t afraid to put their unique spin on it. Just look at the empty gold frames bursting with florals — and the mannequin in the corner. Of course, there are also classic Regencycore elements as well, like the tufted grey bed frame and Persian-inspired rug to match.
6. Colorfully Cohesive
In dreaming up a children’s room that would make new mom Daphne Bridgerton proud, you shouldn’t be afraid of fusing youthful elements with mature ones — like a chandelier styled alongside stuffed animals. We love how this bedroom could easily be adapted for any age and how cohesive the color palette is throughout. Take note of the way the traditional rug mirrors the wallpaper and the giraffe-shaped wicker basket matches the arched floor lamp.
7. Pink and Polished
Love Bridgerton style, but prefer a more modern aesthetic? This bedroom is the perfect example of modernizing the regency decor style for the present day. While the long, dramatic drapes and neoclassical gold frame feel reminiscent of the Regency era, the abstract area rug and modular bed frame feel more in line with today’s trends.
8. Floor-to-Ceiling Finesse
This office space nails the moody Regency decor style. Here, the ornate area rug and mural take center stage and set the vibe for the workspace. The walls resemble an oil painting, which is a core element of the 19th century-inspired aesthetic — and the floor-to-ceiling bookshelf looks identical to that of Anthony Bridgerton’s study. All of these elements, teamed with a bust statue on the desk, a velvet accent chair, and framed vintage portraits, make this space a Bridgerton aficionado’s dream come true.
9. Relaxing and Refined
Yes, it’s possible to design your space with Bridgerton in mind without going over the top. For inspiration, check out this bedroom, comprising vintage-inspired furniture, but not an abundance of decor. This designer opted for a neutral-colored area rug and chandelier for some flair, but kept the rest of the space simple with botanical-style wall art to match the muted green comforter.
10. Bountiful Blossoms
An easy yet impactful way of evoking Regency vibes in your kitchen is by peppering your space with gorgeous blossoms. While this space isn’t overtly Bridgerton-inspired, it’s a great example of harnessing historical glamour while remaining true to your personal style. One of our favorite things about this space is how the designer matched the Persian rug to the cabinets — so luxe!
