Rastrelli is a rich, honey oak colour with the added interest of a visible grain. Part of our Strada collection, the 20mm engineered planks or herringbone blocks have a 6mm wear making them exceptionally hardwearing. Meaning they will stand the test of time – or any Bridgeton ball to be held for that matter!

Chandeliers and Lighting:

  • Statement chandeliers bring the drama. Look to vintage-inspired designs to achieve this look.
  • Hang ornate mirrors and incorporate frames to enhance the regal feel.
  • Use more traditional lighting fixtures such as wall lights or lanterns to layer your lighting.

Regency Wood Flooring

  • The Georgian era (1714-1830) saw diverse architectural styles (Palladian, Neoclassical, Georgian Gothic) shaping wood flooring designs.
  • Initially, wide hand-hewn planks were favoured, combining rustic and refined aesthetics.
  • Over time, narrower boards and fixed-width planks became prevalent.
  • Mahogany graced upscale homes for its dark elegance, while Baltic fir and pine were common in more modest residences.

A Connection with Nature

  • Regency interiors incorporated large windows and skylights.
  • People wanted to be in touch with nature, and this was reflected in their homes by maximising the natural light.
  • Cleverly placed mirrors opposite windows reflected both light and the foliage outside, bringing nature indoors.
