Bridgerton is back! Are you drooling over all things Bridgerton style? We don't just mean the romance and heated glances!

Want to live dripping in luxury, like Penelope, Colin, Simon and Daphne? Or how about Viscount Anthony Bridgerton, or Queen Charlotte herself? Well, we've got all our best Royalcore pieces together to help you create your own Bridgerton-inspired home. Let's get the basics out of the way first: Have you binged the new Season yet?

How to describe the Bridgerton style? And what the hell is Royalcore?!

Bridgerton is set in the Jane Austen/Emily Bronte Regency period of English history, which refers to the period between 1811 and 1820. This is when King George III ("Mad King George") had to hand power over to his son George IV, up until George III died. Regency style took a lot of inspiration from Classical Greek and Roman design, with lots of columns and scroll-work (even those gorgeous dresses have a straight up-and-down column look), and made ornamental with floral French-inspired motifs.

Royal-core refers to aesthetics based on West European royalty right back through history. It's all about refinement, elegance, intricate details, and opulence.

The modern Regency style is also being described as "soft royalcore"! Think, what would make a room feel rich, luxurious and fancy, but keep it 'sweet'. Modern Regency soft Royalcore sees a lot of straight lines with pretty flourishes and curls, a palette of pastel shades, marble, gold accents and pops of rich jewel tones. Lots of sumptuous heavy fabrics and floral prints.

A period-accurate (save for the electricity!) Regency style living room.

And a more modern interpretation of Regency soft royalcore in a living room.

Where the magic happens, eh? Unless you've seen *that* library scene...

Bridgerton-inspired soft Royalcore bedrooms are all about opulence and feeling like royalty, from the moment you lay down to the minute you rise. A beautiful statement bed will be the anchor of a Regency-inspired bedroom, so go for structural shapes with a few soft curves, and then dress it to the max with luxurious fabrics. Egyptian cotton sheets, satin and silk will have you feeling majestic. Similarly, velvet touches (in the upholstery or your soft furnishings) will always feel regal.

For a truly Bridgerton living room, or the"drawing room" if we're using Regency speak, go for soft, draping fabrics. Also, a central eye-catching sofa with soft, plump cushions, again in those sumptuous fabrics, will really work well. If, however, you want to go old school, then consider a wood-frame sofa. Otherwise, a more modern style with nods to Regency design, with rolled arms or Chesterfield buttons, will be great. Regency windows were big and tall, so a Bridgerton style living room will be full of light. Consider using mirrors to bounce natural light around and get the most out of all those textures!

So, we're not necessarily saying you need to go all out and replicate the elaborate Regency dining rooms! You can achieve a Bridgerton-inspired dining room with modern pieces that nod to that classic style! Marble, gold, silver, plush fabrics and lots of light in pastels with the odd pop of rich colour is where you want to head to get this look.
