Decor Trend: ✨Regencycore✨
Updated: May 2
It's funny how pop culture influences fashion, music, and even home decor trends. Remember Rachel on the sitcom Friends? Well, everyone wanted the "Rachel Cut"! Madonna influenced a whole new fashion trend. Brad Pitt, David Beckham, and others made the old "Flat Cap" a fashion must-have.
Are you a fan of Bridgerton, Persuasion, or Saniton? These dramas take place in the Regency Era. Where love, romance, and extravagant living all take place in front of these beautiful Regency interiors and manicured gardens. Opulence, luxurious fabrics, gold gilding, and architectural details are eye candy to the fans, and they want it in their homes too.
The series Bridgerton has introduced a new decor trend, Regencycore .
Fun Facts: The Regency Era was between the years 1811-1820. England was the most powerful and richest country during this period. Everyone wanted to show off their wealth. A large influence on fashion and decor was the eldest son of King George 111. His son, Prince of Wales, George, became the Prince Regent when his father succumbed to mental illness, he later became the reining George the lV. Prince Regent George loved fine clothing and opulent furnishings and was not shy to put his wealth on display. His subjects aspired to have the same extravagant lifestyle as the Prince Regent George. As trade opened up to the far east at this time, luxurious fabrics, art, wallpapers, and fine china became available to the elite.
Shonda Rhimes, one of Hollywood's hottest creators and famed writer for the series Bridgerton has created a modern Regencycore-inspired apartment in the heart of New York City. Notice the lovely floral wallpaper, gilded sconces, rich textiles, and antique chairs with a Regency flair.
