Want to bring out the glamour and glitz this holiday season? The sophisticated style of silk, satin, sparkling diamonds and slimming color tones goes far beyond the red carpet. Time travel your space back to the golden era with luxurious fabrics, brilliant prints, classy colors and sparkling, chic accents. Hollywood Regency draws inspiration from a variety of home designs (modern, art deco, classic) without looking a mess. This style brings out the inner beauty queens and socialites- exuding sophistication, confidence and a lot of glam! Take 90210 into your living space by creating a dramatic Hollywood Regency design with help from Sheelys!
Just because you might not be royalty, doesn’t mean you can’t decorate like you are! When choosing a wall color for your Hollywood inspired space, opt for more than just a coat of paint. Although the majority of old school Hollywood films are set in black and white, pick a strong rich color for your walls- brilliant reds, emerald greens, royal blues and polished metallic. If you desire something more dramatic, try textured wallpaper or the sharp contrast of black and white stripes!
When it comes to furnishing your Hollywood Regency space, modest is the key word. In this design, the spotlight is focused on the people that fill the room, not the furniture in it. Decorate your room with clean lined, elegant pieces. Being that the furniture is not the focus in the room, keep your sofas and chairs small in scale and low slung. Decorative embellishments like nail head trim or tassels, dress up the modest furniture keeping it Hollywood sharp. Do not overdo it on patterns. Although Hollywood Regency is all about luxurious prints, too many can be overwhelming and unattractive. If you opt for a patterned wall, chose a solid sofa. Hollywood is all about entertaining! Arrange your furniture so it invites guests by creating several conversational settings around your space.
Hollywood Regency is all about quality not quantity when it comes to accessorizing your space. Finding the right pieces that keep a common theme, whether that be shine, color or sparkle, allow your space to not look cluttered. Use a fabulous piece as your focal point to draw attention and add drama. Mirrors, mirrors and more mirrors, will cast light and create sparkle throughout the room (also what celebrity do you know that doesn’t like looking at themselves?)! Frames, crystal lamps and pillows in luxe fabrics are the perfect sophisticated accent pieces in a Hollywood Regency space!
You don’t have to have a spot on the red carpet, star in a major film or be on the best dressed list to live like a Hollywood celebrity. Emphasize your character, encourage your personality and exude elegance this Holiday season by decorating your favorite space in Hollywood Regency decor!
