Bring the Regency-Core Look Home With These 'Bridgerton'-Inspired Buys
Add a dash of Regency-core decor to your home with these beautiful and affordable product picks.
The trendy period drama from Shonda Rhimes' adaptation of Julia Quinn's book series, Bridgerton, has been breaking Netflix streaming records ever since its Christmas Day debut. The period drama takes place during the reign of King George IV of England, also known as the Regency era. In addition to fans loving the steamy romance and the trials of debutante society, the show has inspired what trendsetters are calling "Regency-core."
Regency-core is exactly what you would expect: opulent, sophisticated and regal. Authentic Regency-style furniture and accessories can be extremely expensive and impractical. However, infusing a piece here and there in your home will give you a debonair feel without the high price tag. Here are some Bridgerton-inspired home decor ideas to give your space the same high-society feel that even Lady Whistledown would approve.
