Hollywood Inspiration

Rarely today do we see the kind of glamour, opulence, and luxury that marked the iconic Hollywood Regency style. Hollywood’s Golden Age was all about glitz — tufted furniture, rich fabrics, lacquer, chrome, and mirrors galore. Sure, it may be a bit over the top, but there is no denying that this style inspires new ideas and designs.

Perhaps Hollywood Regency is intriguing to you, but you aren’t sure how to capture it in your own space. Start by pulling from the color palettes of cream and white, or black and white. Dial up the playfulness and energy by adding splashes of color in jewel tones. Or, incorporate high gloss finishes and metallic details in chrome and gold for a creative way to bring some shimmer into play.

What are other inspiring characteristics? Velvet. Satin. Faux animal fabrics. Rich textures. Together, they create a sumptuous and even modern look. More refined details include tufting, tactile fabrics, and nail head embellishments. Take a look at a few examples of current designs that use Hollywood Regency inspiration:
