The new hit series “Bridgerton” is currently a major source of inspiration both from a style and decor perspective. Set in the Regency Era in 1813, the popular Netflix show offers a diverse take on London’s high-society and the whirlwind romances within it. With that comes lavish home accents, opulent light and art fixtures, and maximalist details eclipsed only by the cast’s ornate corsets and sweeping capes.

If you dream of living like the royal family, we’ve rounded up five home trends from “Bridgerton” to give your space that signature regencycore vibe.

1. Antique Gold

From mirrors and picture frames to clocks and candelabra, antique gold accents are an easy way to infuse your home with the Bridgerton family’s signature style without it looking overpowering. Grab the cult-favorite Gleaming Primrose Mirror from Anthropologie available in four finishes and four sizes, the longer of the options creating a high-ceiling effect.

For a Bridgerton-inspired accent piece, top your mantle (or piano, if you’re channeling your inner Daphne), with this vintage gold candelabra from Wayfair. The candleholder works beautifully as a statement piece or centerpiece on its own, or grouped together with decor pieces like lamps and vintage clocks in similar color families.

2. Opulent Chandeliers

We went from admiring industrial and minimalist light fixtures to fixating on the luxurious renditions depicted in the Bridgerton household and at their many lavish gatherings. Infuse your home with that same elegance with this six-light chandelier from Overstock. Its hanging crystals give it a glam element perfect for the modern home while its curved frame in a rustic gold finish anchors it in time.

With its unique empire shape, the Aayan three-light chandelier with an adjustable height will transport you straight to the set of “Bridgerton.” Its beaded construction in a distressed white hue adds bulk while still looking dainty enough to entertain the most discerning and regal of guests.

3. Powder Blue Damask

You’ll notice color and patterns works in interesting ways on the set of “Bridgerton.” It functions to identify families (the Bridgerton home is dusted in a swathe of powdered blue, whereas the Featherington home uses sage green and lime to distinguish themselves), and it also works to neutralize some of the bright colors depicted in the costumes.

Boost the blue hues in your home with Wedgwood blue inspired by the British ceramic brand of the same name. This elegant comforter set—which comes with a comforter, bed skirt, and pillow shams—will give your bedroom a Victorian vibe while keeping you cozied up. For a more dramatic, all-over effect, opt for this popular (and historically accurate!) white floral damask wallpaper with a powder blue backdrop.

4. Velvet Furniture

Isn’t it convenient when life imitates art, and that velvet furniture happens to be incredibly current despite its Regency-era flair? From drapery to sofas and throne-like armchairs, the show relies on velvet in rich, jewel-toned hues to display their impeccable taste and exorbitant wealth.

This glamorous tufted wingback loveseat in delicious chocolate, wine, and berry tones makes for the perfect accessory for afternoon high tea and gossip. For floor-to-ceiling Bridgerton vibes, opt for this set of two pinch-pleat curtain panels in a blend of gold and silver. The blackout curtains include an elegant tieback and weighted hems.

5. Arches

From the Palladium Bridge to the Duke of Hastings’ residence, there’s no shortage of grand arch-like structures in “Bridgerton.” While it may not be feasible to knock down a wall and create a new doorway, you can insert the archway motifs in your home with a little bit of creativity.

This arched panel features elegant winding vines in a wrought iron material that’s ideal as wall decor or a window accent. Similarly, you can use over-the-door decor to create the illusion of an arch. Handmade with pecan shell resin, this leaf door accent boasts an antique gold hue and intricate leaf design that sets a tone of romance and mystery for the entire room.
