"Hollywood Regency is an actual style type among the design world, so we are merely playing with words for what is one of our six style types that is still en rigueur and will continue to be for some time."-S.Hess
This style reinterprets the Hollywood era of glamor from the '30s and '40s. It is highly dramatic, seductive, and feminine and embraces glitz, glam, and retro-Hollywood without a blink of the extra-long lash. Today, however, many of the products are a refreshing reinterpretation of the Regency and even Baroque periods. So, if you can convert a tuxedo or silk with beaded gown into a décor statement, you have realized the potential of this category. With the theatrical bling and excesses of Hollywood in the 30's and 40's era essentially regrouped and reinterpreted for a modern lifestyle, this type is now embracing new uses of leather, to include metallics, silks, and reflective surfaces, such as lacquer and mirrors. Coupled with a dramatic palette of black and white, select modern art and accessories, plus the latest bold color of choice and the look is complete.
