Revisiting Regency: Add a Touch of the Regal Look to Your Home

Born in the early part of the 19th century and seen in some of the grandest homes of England, Regency stuns with its glamorous and showy pieces showcasing the wealth and power of those who could decorate with it. With the popularity of shows such as “Bridgerton” that have used the style beautifully as a part of the storytelling, the style has seen a renewed interest among design lovers. Mixed with modern decor, Regency style gets a bold new look. Whether you want to add a touch of the look or go all in, we have the pieces you need to give your home a regal makeover.

Just a Touch…

To add a hint of Regency appeal to your space, start with adding in some accessories. The look is in the details with pieces like mantel clocks, artwork or an end table.

Reclaim the mantel as a traditional place for décor, timepieces and artwork. A standout mantel clock above the fireplace is far more attractive and timeless than a television.

If a antique painted portrait of your family is not handy, a serene landscape makes a handsome substitute … just don’t forget the gilded frame.
