Looking for glitz and glamor in your boudoir? The look towards a design style called Hollywood Regency for some glitzy home decor inspiration. This style, popular in the 1930s through the 1950s, favored over-the-top color, pattern, texture, and design and was championed by the likes of Dorothy Draper and William Haines. These days the style has been re-championed by Jonathan Adler, famous for his “Happy Chic” aesthetic, and Kelly Wearstler. There are many ways to adapt a bit of Hollywood Regency into your home decor: invest in home accessories such as sumptuous upholstery fabrics, a plush headboard with nailhead trim, a chandelier, and look towards patterns like trellis and chevron stripes.
Hollywood Regency is all about symmetry, style, shine and an eclectic mix. While you may not be blessed with such gorgeous windows on either side of your bed, create symmetry on either side of your bed with matching nightstands and lamps. Create drama with a large silver mirror at the head of your bed where the headboard would be.
A plush, low bed in Kelly green with a pair of black Philippe Starck Louis XIV chairs look so chic and glamorous without being too dramatic.

This bedroom is to-die-for! A plush bed, upholstered in luxurious olive-green velvet, mirrored nightstands and a crystal chandelier plus the matching fabric are all so swoon-worthy.
Bronze, cream and gold play so well together in this bedroom. A bronzed concave wall mirror, a tufted bed (in mohair!), and an antique bronzed chandelier are posh, but understated.
When decorating in glamorous style of Hollywood Regency, be bold and creative, and remember that symmetry is the key to striking the right balance.
