Recreating Your Very Own Regency Look and Style

My online blogging friend and interior designer, Linda Merrill of Surroundings, has published a wonderful post entitled Get That Look: Regency Style and The Complete Jane Austen.

If, after reading Linda's post, you are inspired to try your hand at redecorating your flat Regency style, here are a few suggestions. Chinoisery Hand Painted wall papers are often found on the walls of Georgian and Regency houses. Order your very own wallpaper from this site.

Fireplace surrounds in the Regency Style are sold at West County Fires LTD

Wish to purchase genuine Regency furniture? Click on Summers Davis Antiques LTD for looking glasses, chairs, sofas, etc. I cannot guarantee that they will be in your price range.

Finally, for a more affordable touch, you can order at a fairly reasonable cost your own reproduction of Neoclassical art, such as the paintings hanging above the grand central stairway in the Camden Place House the Elliots rented (see below). Click on the Great Masterpiece Gallery and choose the painting you like. This one is by Sir Thomas Lawrence of Margaret, the Countess of Blessington.
