5 must-have details for hollywood regency style
Tuesday, March 15, 2016
To get the iconic Hollywood Regency look in your home, be sure to include these five must-have design elements.
1. Statement furniture
In Hollywood, its all about making a statement and being the start of the show. You should have one furniture piece that does just that. Look for pieces that will spark a conversation with your guests. The more unique, the better. With a little patience and perseverance, you can find the perfect piece of furniture without the Hollywood budget by browsing thrift stores and consignment shops.
2. Gorgeous glass
You won't have to look far to find the perfect fixtures and accessories complete with plenty of shine to add a little Hollywood glamour. Look for lighting or mirrors adorned with crystals to reflect the 1930s chandeliers that were so popular among starlets. When it comes to Hollywood Regency, no amount of shine is too much.
3. Bold colors
It wouldn't be Hollywood without the drama. This iconic style often pairs bold colors that offer the perfect pop when paired with black, white or grey. It's easy to play around with multiple colors especially when starting with a neutral base but for true Hollywood Regency style, its best to choose one color and stick to it.
4. Elaborate prints
Solid colors aren't the only way to add a little drama to your space. Elaborate prints in vintage wallpapers or furniture and throw pillows are great at doing this as well. After choosing your bold color above, find an elaborate print that pairs well like paisley or damask. Hollywood Regency is anything but understated so choose a single print and go big.
5. Polished metals
Don't overlook the hardware in your home for a chance to add even more shine and glamour. Our Polished Nickel finish (pictured left) will perfectly match homes with lacquered surfaces and glass accents, but is adaptable enough to coexist with other modern styles. If your home falls into a warmer environment, consider Satin Brass (pictured right), featuring hints of gold for a modern brass alternative.
