According to the New York Times, Robert Koch Woolf and John Elgin Woolf, "established a new vocabulary for glamorous movie star living; they synthesized 19th-century French, Greek Revival, and Modernist touches into a heady mixture that has since been christened Hollywood Regency." They designed houses for Cary Grant, John Wayne, Errol Flynn, Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. "When designers from Hollywood's Golden Age, like William Haines and Dorothy Draper, encouraged West Coast film luminaries to decorate their home with overtones of glitz and glamour, a new design style emerged."
Not many people can specifically define it, but many claim to "know it when I see it" in regards to successful Hollywood Regency design schemes. The major theme running through this style is centered on entertaining, particularly cocktail parties. Sleek lines, color, drama and exotic accents punctuate this blend of design styles, which focuses on the people in the room rather than the furnishings. It should resemble the set of a black and white film circa 1935, only in techni-color.
Unlike the bland, neutral tones popular today, color is vital for the Hollywood Regency Style. Bold colors in vibrant tones like reds, yellows and turquoise are often used. Peacock blue, tomato red, pale gold and indigo recall the exotic interiors of the old mansion. These colors should be contrasted against white or black to create an even more dramatic effect. A red chair against a white wall is an eye-capturing accent.Please visit our website for other unique fine art, vintage furniture and lighting.
