The Hollywood Regency Look

Hollywood Regency can be defined as the over arching style for Vintage Glamour decorating. Reminiscent of the old Hollywood era full of glitz and glamour this look is bold and timeless. It is a style that has truly transcended the decades. Hollywood Regency can be broken down into two major categories Chinoiserie and Palm Beach. Both styles are eclectic mixes of colors and prints. Below are ways to incorporate both looks into your home.

 Chinoiserie

The Chinoiserie style originated when 18th Century Europeans brought back beautiful porcelain jar from the Far East. It has since transformed into a timeless style that mixes well into any decor. For this, think ginger jars, blue and white, pagodas and lacquered furniture.
