Netflix’s steamy Regency period drama, Bridgerton, has become one of the biggest shows of 2021, thrilling its viewers with royal romances, dashing Dukes and beautiful period properties. On our quest to instil the Regency and Georgian eras into our lives, Fine & Country Property Staging share their top Bridgerton-inspired home design tips with a contemporary twist, as well as quintessential homes on the market that would fit perfectly in the series.
The first Bridgerton family home seen in the Netflix series is an elegant Georgian property, which currently serves as an art museum in Greenwich, London, called Ranger’s House. Wisteria and Ivy were added to the exterior of the residence to make the property feel more enchanting.
The front garden of this well-presented, Grade II Listed property includes stunning mature Wisteria and a typical English cottage garden enclosed by a bespoke white picket fence, adding considerable charm.
Welcoming you into the home, a statement staircase can bring a sense of grandeur. Plenty of important entrances and exchanges take place in the family’s entrance hall, the staircase adding extravagance to the start of any encounter.

Steeped in history, this grand Victorian residence offers elegant and spacious reception rooms, and eight bedrooms, all accessed from the grand entrance hallway, featuring a beautiful wooden staircase, high ceilings and a fireplace.

This sublime, contemporary residence offers spacious accommodation, extremely high-quality fittings and ‘Smart’ features suitable for a modern executive lifestyle.
Upon entry, there is an incredible double-height vaulted reception hall with an impressive 'floating' staircase to the first floor.
A key feature of Georgian architecture and interior design is symmetry. Mirroring elements such as furniture, fixtures and use of colours on both sides of a space creates balance and harmony. A symmetrical space can look fashionable and make a statement when done correctly. Be careful to not create two identical halves to avoid creating a space that is boring.
Tip: Use similar sized furniture pieces, artwork and ornaments to balance each side of a room.

The drawing room of Tamhorn Park Farmhouse, an attractive Grade II Listed Georgian home. Seating is laid out symmetrically in front of a large wood burning stove to create a fabulous place to entertain or simply relax.
Brass architectural ironmongery is typical of the Regency era to create beautiful furnishings, taps, light fittings and door handles, complimented by gold-painted picture frames hanging on the walls, glass chandeliers and elegant marble tabletops.
For a modern take on this classic style, adopt a more muted colour palette combined with glass ornaments, elaborate chandeliers, grand mirrors, marble-effect surfaces and ornate ironmongery in black or other darker shades. The buildings and décor of the Regency era was inspired by Egyptian, Gothic, classical Greek and Roman, and Indian styles. Consider introducing classic artwork from these regions. Go even bigger with fitted columns and statues.
