“All is fair in love and decor,” or so we keep telling ourselves, in our best Lady Whistledown voice. If you’re one of those—like this author—who mainlined Shonda Rhimes’ new Netflix series, “Bridgerton,” chronicling the steamy love lives of a group of siblings in an alternate-universe Regency England (it’s now the streaming service’s fifth most-watched original series), you may be fantasizing about decking out your home in the show’s extravagant patterns and rich colors.
Well, while your chances of landing a duke may be farfetched, you can certainly pull off some of the show’s lush looks in a way that’s worthy of a Whistledown write-up.
Inspired by top designers (also fellow fans), here’s our list of eight absolute must-haves to make your space as swoon-worthy as a 19th-century London home—in Shondaland.
