Juliette Hohnen Design Series | Hollywood Regency
Many may find it hard to believe that the current “Maximalist” trend actually had a predecessor that dates back to the 1930’s: Hollywood Regency. With the rise of the Los Angeles film industry, many directors and actors wanted to show-out the glamour of their (at the time) new lifestyle (Alyson McNutt English, Hollywood Regency Style: Get the Look, HGTV). As an LA staple, Hollywood Regency can now be seen either as it originally was or with a modern twist all throughout the city. Below is a classic example, taken at my newly listed property 12831 Mulholland Drive, Beverly Hills.
- Gold accents
Reminiscent of the previous Art Deco era in the 1920’s, Hollywood Regency styles also used gold heavily.
- Velvet furniture
Nothing says opulence more than velvet upholstery and furniture. And Hollywood Regency does not shy away from velvet..
- Grand lighting
In these present times of selfies and social media, we all know that lighting is very important. Opt for more glamorous and moody, warm light fixtures.
- Pink, green and gold color palette
Think Lily Pulitzer meets a West Coast The Great Gatsby.
