Live Like Royalty with the Royalcore Aesthetic

Posted by Carlee on April 11, 2024

Dear Gentle Reader,  

As the buds of spring begin to bloom, so does the opportunity to infuse your home with a touch of elegance and royalty...  

Ok, so we are no Lady Whistledown. But we are here to spill the tea on how to get the Royalcore look in your home.     

This micro-trend had gained immense popularity on TikTok, with over 677.9 million views (as of when this article was written). It is inspired by a love for all things regal, refined, and romantic. It has also become a popular theme in TV shows such as Bridgerton, The Crown, Tudors, and various other period dramas.  

Royalcore is about integrating popular fabrics, motifs, and styles with your current aesthetic and not necessarily about turning your home into a museum or castle. Keep reading to learn some tips and tricks on how to achieve this grand and majestic style in your home. 

Select Specific Wood Types & Finishes


Light woods such as oak or cherry have historically been prized for their ability to bring warmth and brightness into interiors. They reflect more light, making spaces appear larger and more open, so they were often used in settings intended to feel airy and inviting.    

Dark wood, such as mahogany, was popularized by its association with wealth and status, as it was frequently imported from exotic locations. These rich, deep tones add a layer of sophistication and warmth.  

Choose Furniture with Artistic Carvings


If you want to add some regal charm to your home with furniture that boasts artistic carvings, consider focusing on particular styles that will help achieve the desired royalcore aesthetic. Cabriole legs are known for their S-shaped curves that exude grace and elegance. They were initially designed during the lavish Louis XV period and reflect the luxury of Rococo design.  

Similarly, furniture featuring fluted legs brings Neoclassical and Georgian elegance into your space, blending seamlessly with traditional and contemporary decor.   

Introduce Patterns and Motifs for a Noble Ambiance


When achieving the royalcore aesthetic for your home, patterns and motifs are essential elements that can add a touch of luxury and history. Floral designs are particularly important, as they have been used in royal tapestries and estates for centuries. Roses, peonies, and fleurs-de-lis are decorative elements and symbols of nobility and luxury. You can create a subtle yet impactful royalcore look by incorporating these designs into your home. 

Incorporate Luxurious & Lavish Fabrics    

You can add texture and luxury to a room using fabrics like velvet, silk, and lace. Velvet is great for furniture because of its deep color and plush texture. Silk has a subtle sheen and is smooth, making it perfect for reflecting light. Lace has delicate patterns and intricate designs that add Victorian romance and sophistication to window treatments, tablecloths, or decorative accents. 

In the past, leather was a popular choice in royal and noble residences due to its durability and ability to be crafted into beautiful and functional items. Today, it still remains a timeless material that can add a touch of elegance to any space. 

Add Metal Accent Pieces


Consider adding metal accents like a brass lamp base or an iron-legged coffee table to give your room a modern twist. Vintage finishes such as brushed gold or antique silver can seamlessly blend the old with the new. By introducing subtle shine, metal accents elevate any room. 

Make Your Home A Modern-Day Castle

Whether you're planning a party for the latest season of Bridgerton or want your home to feel more elegant, we hope these ideas help. Just remember, you don't need a big budget or a lot of time to start enjoying a home that feels more refined and comfortable. Just a few well-chosen pieces can make a big difference, letting you enjoy a bit of royal style every day.
