regencycore house interiors

‘Regencycore’ is not just a revival of historical fashion and design, but a cultural expression, romanticising the elegance of the early 19th century. 

For those with an interior appetite for a sense of nostalgia and sophistication, the allure of this era is difficult to resist. In fact, ‘Regencycore’ is soaring in popularity once again, with #regencycore accumulating well over 374 million views on TikTok. 

The Bridgerton-inspired trend sees homes embracing the iconic era – emphasising intricate details, rich fabrics, and a blend of historical and modern furnishings.‘Regencycore’s’ true appeal lies in its romantic and whimsical nature, providing an escape into a refined world. 

Luxury interior brand Designers Guild talk us through the colours that should dominate our homes in order to achieve this bold and elegant aesthetic. 

Emerald Green 

To reflect a time period where the arts flourished and colour reined, the experts recommend introducing emerald green into spaces such as our living and dining rooms. Rich jewel tones such as emerald green and sapphire blue add a sense of grandeur and depth to our homes and compliment softer shades perfectly. 

Fuschia Pinks 

Bright pinks are another staple colour we should consider according to the experts. They say introducing bright colours through ornate patterns is an ultra-modern way to achieve Regency. Plush fabrics like velvet and brocade for cushions and curtains add a touch of luxury. Opt for embroidered cushions that pull through brighter shades such as fuschia pink, as a subtle way of introducing true ‘Regencycore’ colours into your space.  

Pastel blue 

Floral wallpapers, opulent chandeliers, and rich drapery evoke the grandeur of Regency homes. Walls of soft pastel blues with pops of bright colours create a soothing ambience, or you might incorporate soft yellows to create a warm and inviting space. Yellows are perfect for smaller decorative elements such as throws and flower arrangements. 

Neutral Tones 

Creams, whites, and beiges serve as a soft, elegant backdrop for more vibrant accents. The experts also recommend considering neutral-toned upholstery in shades like taupe or soft grey. This works well for larger furniture pieces, creating a refined and understated look. 

Soft Lavender 

This french lavender paint from Designers Guild brings a sense of joy and gracefulness to any room in the home. Pastel tones such as lavender, ooze regency when paired with white furnishings and fittings. If lavender doesn’t appeal, pale pinks have a way of bringing in a gentle and romantic sense of delicacy to 19th-century inspired homes. 

Serene Greens

Serene greens such as mint and sage greens provide a fresh and awakening environment.  Olive Green can be used as a more subdued, earthy green that provides a rich and warm ambiance. These greens are best used in accents like throws, pillows, upholstery, or area rugs. Throws that set your choice of green on vivid backgrounds, make a vibrant statement in any interior settings. 

By integrating these Bridgerton-inspired colours, you can create an interior that feels both luxurious and inviting, capturing the essence of the Regency era while remaining functional and stylish for modern living.
