Over the next few days, I’d like to share my tips for finding pieces that are characteristic of popular design styles. In honor of Valentine's Day, let's start with Hollywood Regency, a style that's full of contrasts, glossy finishes, and old-fashioned glamour. Picture a Fifties starlet’s boudoir, and you’re on the right track.
Designers who frequently reference this style include Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler, and Vanessa de Vargas (a.k.a. Turquoise). This cherry blossom wall hanging is a great example of faux-Asian Hollywood Regency style.
A monumental lamp spells drama.
You can use the keywords James Mont, Parzinger, neoclassical (like these chairs), chinoiserie, tole (chandelier), (Dorothy) Draper, (Billy) Haines, and (Kelly) Wearstler to find similar pieces.
If you're a fan of this style, add mad4milo, realfineone, and maison21 to your list of favorite sellers.
