‘Hollywood Regency is glitz and glamour covered in lacquer, chrome, and mirrored finishes. Every detail is meant to convey luxury and there is always the feeling that people should look good in the design – particularly if they are wearing satin bathrobes and sipping a cocktail.’ Rochelle Greayer
The style originated in California and was inspired by the opulent homes of the Golden Era cinema stars. The opulent style uses a combination of clashing shades – hot pink, turquoise, yellow, emerald green, black and white to develop its standout trademark style.
Hollywood Regency is all about going over-the-top, introducing fringing, crystals, patterns, contrasting fabrics and materials. The style incorporates glamour and detailing, creating juxtapositions of super clean with elaborate elements. The style focuses on making the home a show home for guests.
Create Hollywood Regency Style in your home. Here’s our top 4 tips for the Hollywood makeover:
