If the modern Regency era taught us anything about interiors, it’s that curtains today aren’t getting their due. Though typically an afterthought (that’s if we even think about them at all), drapery can actually have the largest impact on setting the tone for a room. Because unlike a couch, which anchors the space with a solid color and texture, curtains have the ability to infuse it with personality.
It’s time to say goodbye to naked windows for good. Walmart’s spring selection features an assortment of elegant Regency-inspired curtains at affordable prices to fulfill all your Bridgerton dreams. From tactile materials like velvet and satin to more homey styles such as Liberty prints and French toile, shop the window-treatment trends we’re ready to dress ours in.
Nothing brightens up a room like floral drapes. From farmhouse botanicals to elegant antique roses, there are plenty of styles that will transport you to the French or English countryside. Pro tip: When not in use, cinch them back with matching ties in the same fabric.
Lace It Up
For those who want privacy but don’t want to block out natural light entirely, go with lace. Though opaque curtains are great for deep sleep (and peeping neighbors), they have a tendency to make a room too dark during daytime. With lace sheers, you’re able to maintain an airy atmosphere while still softening the glow. Let them hang down and blow from the breeze of a cracked window on a warm afternoon.
Plush velvet curtains are modern Regency personified, especially when styled with elegant tassels or gold tieback clips. Since velvet is a heavier texture, stick to softer or neutral shades in solids, not prints, to give the space a hint of warmth. Accent larger parts of the room with the same color—be it the bed, sofa, or even walls, for a monochromatic look, and use smaller decor in opposing hues for surprising pops throughout.
