I was not an interior design student in college, nor did I ever know much about design in general until I started blogging about home decor. I knew what I liked, and what I didn’t and that was about as far as it went. Recently I found myself drawn over and over to similarly styled spaces and one day my good blogging friend Kelly from View Along the Way finally put a name on this “style” I was falling head over heels for: Hollywood Regency.
Hollywood Regency was a style made popular in the 30s and is enjoying a resurgence. Some hallmarks of the style are laquered and mirrored finishes, fretwork and bamboo patterns, Chinoserie styles, rich colors and fabrics and luxe metallics. Here are some gorgeous Hollywood Regency spaces:
Gorgeous, isn’t it?
I’m working on a little Hollywood Regency style furniture makeover I hope to share with you next week but in the meantime I have gathered some affordable Hollywood Regency styled goodies for you from around the web (you can see I lean towards the neutrals and metallics!):
