If you love to entertain like a star, with the max amount of bling, sparkle and drama, Hollywood Regency style is for you!
The 1930’s were Hollywood’s “Golden Age,” and movie stars were expected to throw fabulous parties for their equally fabulous friends. They and their designers would compete with other celebs to bring the drama and glamour of a movie set into their own homes. That’s how Hollywood Regency design was born, and it’s still a celebrity favorite today. Follow these simple rules of Hollywood Regency design and wow your friends with celebrity glam style!
Super sumptuous fabrics and fabric treatments are a hallmark of Hollywood Regency. Think velvet, satin, faux furs and comfy tufting! A cabinet with a crocodile embossed design or a headboard with luxurious tufting (both pictured) will make you feel pampered and special every time you see them.
Before the selfie, Hollywood movie stars liked mirrors and lots of them. Mirrors with opulent frames are just the starting point for Hollywood Regency though. Even more glamour is added with mirrored surfaces, metallic and jeweled accents (bed frame with platinum finish, pictured) and high gloss finishes.
Simple backgrounds and bright, exotic accents
You and your stunning furniture shouldn’t be upstaged by the room itself! Hollywood Regency uses a simpler palette for the floor and walls, often black and white and more neutral furniture fabrics. A plain background will make your bright accent colors (red, yellow, turquoise) and unusual accents (large artwork, an Asian vase) really pop. If you have some awesome souvenirs from your own exotic travels that you can display, all the better. In the true Hollywood Regency style, your accessories should be conversation starters!
