French Chateaus. Fairytale Princesses. Romantic Endings. 

Whether it’s Bridgerton, The Crown or the Coronation that’s got your heart aflutter for opulent and ornate décor – there’s no denying that royalcore décor is a look. Born on social media (mainly TikTok) royalcore is all about romanticizing your life and living your own personal fairytale. We’re talking historical European royalty –  from Marie Antoinette (1700s) through to the Regency period (early 1800s). Think corsets, princess hair and pointy, diamond encrusted shoes. 

the royalcore aesthetic for your home.

When it comes to your home, royalcore takes it up a notch. You need whimsical florals, gold accents and over-the-top ornate luxury. It’s ultra feminine, with lots of blush pinks, duck egg blue and cotton whites. 

What’s not to love? Only the price tag! Which is why we’ve pulled together our best tips and tricks for creating a royally good space without having to marry a prince.

floral, heritage patterns.

One of the quickest and easiest ways to add a nod of royalcore to your décor is through pattern. Pattern can be seen in soft furnishings like cushions, curtains and bedding – so easy to swap out on a whimsy. Create regal vibes by swapping out plain and dull bedding with small, ditsy floral patterns and heritage prints.

plush, luxurious fabrics.

Lavishing in luxury means that the feel of your home has to be as opulent as the way it looks. Think plush velvets and rich faux furs, but don’t forget that whimsical vibe too – so light and airy fabrics like muslin, linen and sateen too.
