Obsessed with Netflix’s hit show Bridgerton? Transform your space into 19th-century England with these Bridgerton-inspired home decor elements from Homes.com.

The Netflix show Bridgerton has leapt out of England and taken the world by storm. The show’s motif has left some craving 19th-century English elegance in their home. While a total redesign to model Daphne’s high-society courtship might be out of a normal budget, Homes.com compiled these DIY tips to transform a space with Bridgerton-inspired decor elements.
Soft blue color palette
Often gathering in their sitting room, the Bridgertons’ furniture, wallpaper and decor accents reflect shades of pale blue and off-whites. According to an interview with Bridgerton’s production designer, Will Hughes-Jones, the color Wedgewood Blue is the family’s signature color in the series, and reflects the inspiration of the character’s gowns, room themes and plot progression. If blue isn’t your cup of tea, soft color shades in any hue can still leave you feeling like you’ve stepped into a timeless period drama.
Your own art gallery
Okay, maybe you don’t want a giant oil painting of your family hung in your living room — we understand! However, art plays an important role in the show’s storyline, and can be an easy addition to your home’s decor. Hang artwork or photographs in a central area of your home — perhaps a hallway, entryway or staircase — or create your family’s own art gallery wall. To get the full Regency-era effect, try framing your pieces in frames with embellishments and detailed design work. Think Cottagecore on this one.
One of the first introductions to the Bridgerton family occurs at the home’s grand staircase. A complete entryway remodel may be out of the question for most of us, but you can give your staircase an easy, Regency-era upgrade by adding black and gold iron railing. Viewers also will note the use of brass in door handles, decor pieces and even light fixtures — all easy additions to your home. Start by adding metallic handles, accents and embellishments in your kitchen or bathroom, or switch out your main light fixtures for chic, elegant chandeliers.
If chandeliers aren’t your thing (or aren’t in your budget), gold candles will give your home a similar regal effect. To top it all off, try your hand at a simple, DIY marble countertop to complete your home’s elegant interior.
The outdoor scenes in Bridgerton greet viewers with picturesque greenery and luxurious gardens. From the trees to the plants, everything is perfectly pristine and meticulously manicured. Hiring a professional landscape artist may not be in the budget, but that doesn’t mean you can’t up your greenery game. Plant some white and pink rose bushes, wisteria, lavender, cherry blossom trees and other greenery to get a stunning garden inspired by the show’s use of floral design.
