Want to Spice Up Your “Castle”? Redecorate Your Home ‘Bridgerton’ Style on a Budget
Unless you’ve been living inside a walnut armoire, you’ve probably seen (or at least heard about) the hit Netflix show Bridgerton.
Whether folks are tuning in to the popular period piece for the steamy love scenes, the regal costumes, or the clever quips exchanged by Daphne Bridgerton and the Duke of Hastings, one aspect that boasts universal appeal is the luxurious and eye-catching decor.
Fortunately, you don’t need a time machine or a queen’s ransom to bring a little Bridgeton style into your home. Living Spaces’ designer Shelby Greene shared ways to achieve these lush looks on the cheap.
“A lot of pieces like this can be found in antique shops or simply DIY’ed,” says Greene.
“What also makes the Bridgerton’s style so substantial is the artistic furniture pieces,” says Greene. ‘You can find amazing tufted, rolled arm, and rounded edge pieces at your local thrift store.”
Estate and garage sales are great places to pick up hand-crafted furnishings that need a little TLC. These babies have good bones, so sometimes a serious cleaning or reupholstering is all they need to last another century or two.
When you find just the right piece, you may find yourself saying...
“Tying the whole look together is with large grand decor pieces like chandeliers, drapes, and sculptures,” says Greene. “Custom-length drapery can be expensive, so by simply buying a length longer than needed will do the trick to achieve the puddling grand look.”
