Make Your Home Oscar-Worthy
And the winner for best style of the year goes to… “La La Land”! Wait. Sorry. It goes to our Hollywood Regency Collection! Much like the momentary Best Picture winner “La La Land”, our Hollywood Regency Collection showcases the magic and the beauty of the early Hollywood lifestyle. It’s jazzy, sharp, and interminably cool. And it’s the perfect way to add some pizzazz to your home.
Art Deco Is A Designer’s Dream
You can’t imagine the Golden Era of Cinema without thinking about the Jazz Age and the Roaring Twenties. It’s an era that was defined by the emergence of Art Deco style (it was also defined by booze, but we’ll stick with the Art Deco angle for now). The marriage of wild imagination and the modern means of production made Art Deco possible. If you could dream it you could do it. And designers did it. They drew from Egyptian and Mayan artwork, Cubism, Functionalism, Italian Futurism, Russian Constructivism, Machine Age aesthetics, Orphism, etc. Basically they took whatever they liked, found a way to combine it all, and made magic happen. Much like the recipe for making movies!
Style To Make Jay Gatsby Jealous
If you weren’t too busy being swept off your feet by Leonardo DiCaprio while you were watching “The Great Gatsby” then you might have noticed that the movie was overflowing with Art Deco and old Hollywood design. The designs might have been a tad bit overwhelming in that film, but a few Art Deco-patterned throw pillows, a glass-and-gold bar cart, or a diamond-tufted sofa might be exactly the visual pop that your home has been missing. Golden Age Hollywood and Art Deco thrives on excess so don’t be afraid of overdoing it; overdoing it is impossible with these styles.
I’m Ready For My Closeup, Mr. Demille
Art Deco and the stylings of Hollywood’s Golden Age are proof that good design never goes out of style. Even though the style is nearly 100 years old it still look sharp, smart, and sexy as hell. That’s not something you can say about most things that are 100 years old (no offense to any of our loyal 100-year-old readers – we still think you’re sexy). The reason these styles have stood the test of time is because they feature an elegant palette of colors, eye-catching patterns, and glamorous accents. Think of these styles like Coco Chanel’s pearl necklace. Or Bing Crosby’s voice. Or Joan Crawford in a sequin dress (our 100-year-old readers definitely get all those references). It’s eternally classy.
