Bridgerton is Back: Style Your Home with Romantic Regency Flair

The internet’s favorite regency romance is back, and it’s filling our cups with flirtatious courtships, steamy scenes, and extravagant style. Bridgerton took over the pop-culture sphere when it hit our screens in 2020, and its influence was felt far beyond our Netflix binging. Antiques dealers saw a sharp rise in regency decor as the show’s reach grew, and with season 2 fresh on our minds, here’s a look at how you can incorporate this lush and stately style into your space.

Go for the Gold

Perhaps the most defining feature of a grand foyer or an expansive ballroom in any period scene is the gold applique often brushed along ceilings and walls. In the absence of gold leaf gilding, however, you can elevate a space with gold accents and accessories set against our elegant marble tile. This bathroom, for example, uses two types of our Casablanca Carrara tile to make the gold details pop, and a rich wood side table adds an extra dimension of handmade charm. We’d take a dip in this tub, no matter the time period.

Balance Patterned Wallpaper with Our Marble Tile

Another great example of our Casablanca Carrara Marble bringing a Georgian twist into the 21st century is this bathroom by Tuft and Trim. Patterned wallpapers are a great way to add depth and charisma to a space, and to emulate the abundance of textures in a regency-style room. Balancing these patterns is important if you’re going for a look that is reminiscent of a certain period while remaining timeless. That’s why the clean feel of our marble tiles perfectly compliments this floral wallpaper and its character. Take a look:

The Full Featherington: Don’t Shy Away from Color

As we previously mentioned, textures and patterns are key to bringing regency style to your space. While paring it back to the basics like gold accents and ornate mirrors is effective, what if you want to go all-in? The same accents set against vibrant colors and complex patterns are equally swoon-worthy. Take a look at these examples of how to embrace the extravagance of regency style while maintaining a contemporary twist.

Our Nola Pink Cement Tile brings a splash of modernity to this space, and our signature Casablanca Carrara on the shower floor breaks it up expertly.

Who says marble has to be white? Our Norwegian Rose Marble matches the charisma of this wallpaper, and their partnership is heavenly.

More of our Norwegian Rose Marble can be seen in this opulent space by Eclectic Twist. If these ornate mirrors and flushed marble together don’t say “regency romance,” we don’t know what does.

Bold Black and White

It wasn’t all soft colors and delicate lines in regency design, and a lot of Georgian tilework was black, white, and bold. Black and white checkered floors were prominent in period estates, and can be seen throughout the set of Bridgerton. Below is an example of our Zellige tile being used alongside a decadent green, invoking a different side of regency life.
