When it comes to designing a home with sumptuous details and timeless glamour, there's no better style to draw inspiration from than Hollywood Regency. Featuring plenty of bold patterns, gold accents, jewel tones, and statement chandeliers, the golden age of Hollywood's interior design may not suit the meek or the mild, but it suits decadence and opulence just fine. And what better room to channel these very characteristics in than the one meant for pampering and relaxation?
Whether you're starting from ground zero in a master bathroom renovation or sprucing up your powder room, we've found six foolproof Hollywood Regency style bathroom ideas that are sure to give your home the perfect shot of glamour.
1. Add a pop of color.
Even though black and white is a classic choice for old Hollywood glamour, adding jewel tones — like the flowers and hand towels pictured here — along with blue-green penny tile from Tilebar guarantees a bathroom that packs a punch. Keep the bright accents sophisticated with a heavy dose of black, white, and gold.

2. Feature geometric details.
The design team at Studio SHK brought in bold, geometric tile that makes a statement even in black and white. To recreate this luxurious vibe, maintain the same patterned tile across your flooring, bathtub surround, and shower wall for maximum impact.

3. Mix classic patterns.
This classic banana leaf wallpaper screams old Hollywood, and feels even more luxurious when paired with glossy black and white checked floor tile. Finish off the look with a painted bamboo bathroom vanity for added texture and depth.
4. Add gold hardware.
Black finishes feel inherently luxe and sophisticated, but never more so than when paired with gold accents. To recreate this striking bathroom design full of old Hollywood inspiration, add unlacquered brass hardware to glossy black tile. Pro tip: Keep the walls white and bright for added contrast.

5. Add dramatic drapery.
While it's clear that no detail was left untouched in this Hollywood Regency bathroom by Tineke Triggs, the sumptuous window treatments may be our favorite component of all. To recreate the look, opt for a lush, textured fabric pulled back with jewel-like drapery hooks for a dramatic silhouette.

6. Bring in a luxurious mirror.
This gorgeous powder room by Alexandra Kaehler is a slightly more subtle take on a regency style bathroom, while still incorporating key origins of Hollywood Regency design. The scalloped edges on the mirror make it a true statement piece, while the gold hardware ties in to create a feeling of opulence and luxury.
