How to Get a Hollywood Regency Bathroom

You can’t resist the charm of this style, that sometimes is called Regency Modern, is a style that describes both interior design and landscape architecture characterized by the bold use of color and contrast often with metallic and glass accents meant to signify both opulence and comfort.

The term “Hollywood Regency” appears to have originated with Draper in the 1920s. It remains a current and lively area of design work both inside and outside of Southern California.

Is an eccentric style for everyone who loves glamour and the “golden era”.

How can you have a Hollywood Regency bathroom?

Shapes

Select appropriately shaped fittings and fixtures is the difference between mastering and failing Hollywood Regency. Keep wall and floors linear and create contrast by introducing curvaceous shapes into your room via a feature bath, basin, elaborate joinery detail, mirrors, and lighting.

Patterns

Repetition is the key. In the bathrooms, tiled surfaces create the most striking patterns. Think about the shape, and repeat linear forms to achieve eye-catching Art Deco patterns.

Wall treatments

In this style don’t be afraid to incorporate Chinoiserie elements, especially on your walls. Opulent gold, birds, plants, or palmette inspired patterns are perfect.

Glass and mirrors

Nothing screams glamour like shiny materials. Aluminum framed, or semi-frameless glass shower screens provide an authentic look. When selecting shower screens, make sure to specify an anodized aluminum finish, this will further enhance your look. When it comes to mirrors, more is more. Vanity mirrors are a must, so are full-length floor mirrors.

Don’t be afraid to play with shape and scale to make mirrored areas more than just reflective surfaces in your space, transform them into key contributors to overall interior style.

Greenery

Indoor plants brighten bathroom space, no matter what décor. When working with Hollywood Regency, Areca Palms, Bamboo Palms, Boston Ferns and Pygmy Date Palms are perfect. The best part about indoor plants, they don’t just look amazing, they also assist in cleaning the interior space of harmful carcinogenic chemicals found in household air.

Furniture

Create a new place for relaxation. Look at your bathroom as not just a room to shower and brush your teeth, view your space as a grooming parlor and relaxation location. If space allows, create a small sitting area within your bathroom, Art Deco armchairs and side tables are perfect. Indulgent, yes, but that’s what Hollywood Regency is all about.

Choose wisely and you will have the bathroom of your dreams full of glamour.
