What is Hollywood Regency?

     Dorothy Draper Hollywood Regency Design

Born in old Hollywood's heyday, Hollywood Regency is a glamorous, sophisticated style combining fine-lined furnishings, rich colors, and fantasy elements such as chinoiserie, palms, and fretwork.  Legendary set decorator Billy Haines became interior decorator to the stars in the forties, and the style carried over into fine residences of the time.  Hollywood regency rooms functioned as "sets" for their inhabitants, who ostensibly lived a glamorous life of poolside parties, cocktail hours and exotic travel.  Today's Hollywood Regency style has evolved into almost a cartoon of itself, with over the top pattern and color.  To read more about the roots of Hollywood Regency, visit our interior design article here: Hollywood Regency Design at Posh Living
