1. Choose sumptuous fabrics

You might not live in Queen Charlotte’s palace, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring Bridgerton design into your space with luxe fabrics.

“Choose velvet upholstery for sofas and armchairs, tufted carpets with floral patterns, and brocade or damask patterns for throw pillows and bedding,” says Nina Lichtenstein, principal designer and founder of Nina’s Home Design.

We love the Ruggable x Bridgerton range which has so many gorgeous floral rugs and has released new colorways to celebrate the new series coming out (the Bridgerton Lady Whistledown Soft Blue Rug from Ruggable totally captures Penelope's aesthetic).

2. Hang up a stunning chandelier

Whether you have a dining room that can accomodate a Bridgerton-style ball, or a small living space, illuminating it with a dazzling chandelier is a must for chaneling the hit Netflix series.

“Choose a crystal or glass fixture with ornate details to create a focal point in any sized space,” Nina suggests. "A beautiful chandelier adds drama and elegance reminiscent of the grand interiors seen in the Bridgerton household and palace.”

These don’t necessarily need to cost a lot to look good, either. We like the LaLuLa Chandelier from Amazon for its affordability at $65.95 and like the dimmable feature, which makes it multifunctional and perfect for small space that often need to double, or triple up use of limited space for various tasks and moods.

3. Look for antique furniture

To create a truly authentic Bridgerton design, scope out secondhand furniture stores like Goodwill to find pieces with charming character.

Nina says, “Integrate antique or vintage-inspired furniture pieces to capture the essence of Regency style. Look for items with graceful curves, carved details, and cabriole legs."

As well as this, you can always upholster vintage furniture so it matches your space.

“If you've already got a lot of floral, consider using a cozy velvet option, such as this Kravet Venetian Peacock,“ suggests Amanda Wyatt, interior designer and founder of Design Insider.

She also suggests choosing a French-style vanity (the One Allium Way Vanity from Wayfair comes fully assembled) to evoke the romanticism of 19th-century design — after all, where else are you going to sit down to style your Penelope Featherington-style curls? 

4. Decorate with fresh blooms

For those looking for spring table decor ideas or design touches for your sideboards, fresh blooms are perfect for bringing in the Bridgerton design look.

Nina says, “Adorn your home with fresh flowers and botanical prints to evoke the lush gardens of the English countryside. Arrange bouquets of roses, peonies, and hydrangeas in elegant vases throughout your living space.”

We’re a particular fan of bold and beautiful hydrangeas as they have big blooms and you can grow hydrangeas in pots indoors, a handy thing to know when propagating

Style them in an elegant vase (the Anelise Vase from Anthropologie is made from stoneware and is watertight) and you'll have a gorgeous centerpiece.

5. Pick gilded accents

One of the best ways to make your small space look luxe is by embracing the Regency era’s opulence with gilded accents and accessories. 

Nina suggests, “Incorporate gold-framed mirrors, decorative trays, candlesticks, and picture frames to add a touch of opulence to your decor.”

Amanda agrees, “Simply type in "gilded mirror" into Etsy and fall in love with over 1200 designs. Or if you are looking for a modern replica that's always in stock, you can't go wrong with the Anthropologie Gold Primrose Mirror."

It's available in four sizes, but on the pricier side. For a cheaper alternative with the same look, try Wayfair's Anglo Arendahl Traditional Accent Mirror, usually priced around $100.

You don’t need to go overboard with these either — just a couple will add refinement to your space.

6. Mix textures and patterns

Going for a maximalist look by mixing together patterns and textures is a beautiful way to layer Bridgerton design ideas to your space.

“Look for designs featuring botanical motifs, delicate stripes, or elaborate damasks,” Nina says.

Amanda adds, “If you are feeling bold, repeat either the wallpaper or the fabric pattern on the room's drapery panels as well,” she adds.

For a less permanent solution, you could always add peel-and-stick wallpaper panels to your wall, such as with the LoveShackFancy Wallpaper from Wayfair which comes in pink, blue, and gray.

7. Pick a regal color palette

Embracing a regal color palette of soft pastels and jewel tones is an important step in bringing Bridgerton design into your home.

Nina says, “Opt for shades like blush pink, duck egg blue, sage green, and rich burgundy to create an atmosphere of sophistication and refinement.”

These hues evoke the elegance of Regencycore interiors and set the stage for a romantic ambiance, whether you use them as paint in bedroom ideas or in living room ideas.

8. Hang up artistic prints

While your home probably isn't a palace (jealous if it is), that doesn’t mean you can’t adorn your walls with artistic paintings and portraits.

“Adorn your walls with classical art and portraits reminiscent of the Regency era. Display framed landscapes, still-life paintings, or romantic portraits in gilded frames to evoke the ambiance of a stately home,” Nina explains.

For an especially refined, look for prints by famous artists — for example, the Claude Monet Sunset on the Seine Print from Desenio has a dreamy landscape and comes in five different sizes.

9. Add romantic detailing

One of the best parts of the Bridgerton show’s design is the gorgeous attention to detail throughout the different rooms. It’s also super easy to bring these into your own place.

“Add fringe or tassels to curtains, incorporate lace or embroidered textiles, and display vintage perfume bottles or jewelry boxes on vanity tables,” Nina suggests.

If you want to achieve a similar look to the bedroom above, the dreamy Special Edition by Lush Decor Coverlet Sheets from Wayfair has lace trim and is made from breathable microfiber. 

10. Finish with personalized touches

Complete your Bridgerton design inspo by bringing a personalized touch throughout your home, to tie the whole place together in true regal fashion.

“Add embroidered napkins, towels, and romantic portraits in gilded frames to evoke the ambiance of a stately home,” Nina suggests.

You can also do this with trinket trays, such as this sweet Collective Home Jewelry Tray from Amazon which is made from sturdy ceramic and would make a great gift.

With these Bridgerton design ideas, you can transform your modern home into a romantic retreat reminiscent of Regency England.

“Embrace luxurious fabrics, elegant furnishings, and refined details to capture the essence of Bridgerton and create a space with charm and sophistication,” Nina finishes by saying.
