Netflix’s hit series, Bridgerton, is back for an eagerly awaited second series. And we can expect a resurgence in the ‘Regencycore’ trend we saw in 2021 to influence our interiors – a dressed-up version of cottagecore which favours luxury, opulence and regalia.

Although this renaissance of 19th century style is naturally suited to period properties, Regencycore influences can work in any home.

Here, Design Director and Founder of Anne Haimes Interiors, shares her top tips for introducing a Bridgerton-inspired aesthetic into your home…

Checkered floors

A classic take on traditional Georgian styles, checkered marble floors are back.

Perfect for entrance hallways and bathrooms, traditional black and white checkered floors are a timeless addition to any style of property. Opting for a larger tile will make a space appear larger and grander while maintaining the sophistication of simplicity.

For those that prefer modern minimalism, a checkered floor is a great focal point without being overbearing. While those with an eclectic flair can easily pair the bold flooring with even bolder colours and patterns.

Garden rooms

In the latest Bridgerton trailer, we see the cast enjoying yet another party, this time set in an exquisite glass greenhouse filled with vibrant flower displays.

Why not bring that floral flair into your own home by dedicating an entire room to your plants?

Summerhouses and garden rooms are becoming increasingly in-demand as we move into the warmer spring season, with biophilic interior design remaining a dominating trend of 2022.

If you don’t have the space to spare a whole room, you can still create that same feeling of decadence by placing oversized bouquets in ornamental vases as a focal point in your living space.

Muted colour

Colour is back this spring, albeit muted, replacing neutrals with more energised, uplifting shades.

Think soft pastel shades of blue, pink and lilac for a nod to the show’s romantic and whimsical aesthetic.

Incorporating these colours through pattern, such as illustrated wallpapers or furniture, will help avoid this colour scheme seeming too child-like and more Regencycore.

Ornate mirrors

Statement mirrors are in vogue, but in recent years minimalist designs have been more popular with thin, simplistic frames. However, expect to see a resurgence of ornamental gold and brass mirrors with intricate detailing this year.

You can play with the shape and size of your chosen mirror to best fit your space. Go oversized with a free-standing full-length mirror to lean against a bare wall if want to make a statement. Or look for an overmantle mirror for placing above fireplaces or shelves to add a sense of grandeur and sophistication.
