Hollywood Regency is HOT!

Home decor is always in flux, but I think some elements are here to stay: luxe fabrics, mirrored furniture, and lacquered accent pieces. These are some hallmark staples pulled from the Hollywood Regency style. Hollywood Regency originates from the 1930’s and is making a huge comeback these days. I’m currently working with a client who loves this style and I created this Regency inspired home office for her.

The desk and slipper chair are both curved, which I think is a great way to bring the Regency feel into your house in a subtle way. The lacquered sideboard serves as great storage behind the desk and is flanked by silver bamboo floor lamps. A touch of Asian influence is also part of the Regency look – think Gingko leaves, bamboo, and fretwork. And of course, you have to have bling! This 9-light chandelier with round crystals fits the bill! Add some velvet drapery and this room is done.

I heart this room.

What do you think of Hollywood Regency – love it or hate it??
