Regency Style

“Regency Style: The English counterpart to the Directoire and Empire styles of French architecture and decorative art. Seen in the late years of the 18th century to about 1830, Greek, Roman, Rococo, oriental, Gothic, and Egyptian elements and motifs were used in a style that profoundly affected British and American tastes.”
