Like most things that come out of Hollywood, Hollywood Regency style is distinctly glamorous. The aesthetic dates to Hollywood's Golden Age, when interiors started to become every bit as luxurious and glam as its rapidly rising stars.


As for the style's hallmarks? Think anything that channels glitz: lush textures like velvet and silk, lacquered and metallic accents, maximalist patterns (including animal print), small-scale furniture, and rich colors. Basically, if you can picture a '40s starlet living there, it probably fits the bill.

Ready to kick things up a notch in your boudoir? Here are six of our favorite Hollywood Regency bedroom ideas that promise to make you feel like a star.

1. Lush Patterns

For a dramatic take on a Hollywood Regency bedroom, try a bold, all-over wallpaper in rich jewel tones like this Parisian hotel room. (Dramatic, floor-length velvet curtains don't hurt, either.)

2. Glitzy Chandeliers

Go all out and add a crystal light fixture above the nightstands or bed — the glitzier, the better. It'll make your Hollywood Regency bedroom feel straight out of a glamorous black and white movie.

3. Gold Touches

Add a dash of Hollywood Regency flair by including a bit of gold throughout your sleeping quarters — think a stylized mirror, statuesque lamps, hardwired sconces, or even gilded frames for beloved artwork à la this bedroom belonging to Cassandra from Coco Kelley for a look that dazzles.

4. Upholstered Headboards

A Hollywood Regency bedroom must-have? Make the bed the focal point. A tall navy blue velvet upholstered headboard looks oh-so-luxe paired with black, white, and gold. Take notes from this boudoir designed by Spruce Interiors and throw in a couple of animal prints to complete the ensemble.

6. Leopard Print Accents

Hollywood Regency style is all about mixing luxe patterns, materials, and textures — the more, the better. Nervous to add something like animal print to the bedroom? A little — on a footstool or throw pillow — goes a long way as proven by this wild duo.
