How to Imbue Your Home with Regency Style Décor

How to Imbue Your Home with Regency Style Décor

The mega-hit show Bridgerton is set to return to screens this June and with it comes a keen-eyed look at the delights of ‘Regencycore’ styling. What is Regencycore you may ask?

Well, it takes in the refined drapes, extravagant detailing, exotic colour displays, and unusual architecturally inspired patterns seen during the Regency period of history. Bridgerton is set during these years, roughly speaking 1795 and 1837. The era takes its name from the reign of the Prince Regent between 1811 and 1820, who was later to become George IV.

But moving away from the royal history, what were the tastes and fashions? The prime indicators of Regency-inspired style are a taste for the striking, the unusual and the elegantly crafted.

Here at Homecolours, we love how the Regency era brought distinct finery, bright colouring, and intricate detailing to the home in lavish style.

The above Royal Botanic Gardens Kew Florentina Bedding has all of these features in maximum effect. The gorgeous collection of duvet covers and pillowcases has been extraordinarily designed to take in deep green leaves and white star-shaped flowers atop a bold golden-yellow background.

Inspired by Kew Garden’s archive of Ammi Majus flower illustrations, the bedding is at once comforting and resplendent.

Sophisticated drapes and curtains add a distinctive touch of regency-like charm to the living areas. Offering the dual function of light control and artistic display, finely made curtains hold an important place in homes looking for that 19th-century splendour.
The above Gosford Lined Pencil Pleat Curtains by Laura Ashley feature a bold floral pattern of parrot tulip blooms arranged beautifully. The classic pattern is ideal for showing off a distinguished beauty in interiors. Featuring soft cream tones and intricate detailing, the wonderfully made curtains have a pencil pleat for a perfectly draped effect.
The curtains are available in a range of sizes to suit all kinds of window spaces. Convenient management of the curtains is also provided with matching tiebacks for securing the curtains when opened.
Taking inspiration from nature and remoulding it in surprising new ways was a hallmark of the Regency era. This desire to refocus familiar things can also be seen in the above Villa Collection Styles Glass Fruit Collection.
Ideal for use as ornaments for a coffee table or mantelpiece, the lovely little items take the shape of grapes, pears and apples. Sure to become a conversation starter, the exquisitely detailed craft pieces make a fine display anywhere at home. Excellent for bringing a glow of colourful light to the home, the glass fruit provides another side of Regency-inspired décor.
