Movies may have still been trapped in a black-and-white world in the 1930s, but design—courtesy of the emerging Hollywood Regency style—was decidedly not. Inspired by the alluring styles of designers like Dorothy Draper and William Haines, Hollywood Regency vividly appealed to those weaned on the silver screen. With its touches of Neoclassical nostalgia and progressive Modernism, must-haves for Regency style include brass, lacquer, velvet, and a touch of Chinoiserie. Zebra hide rugs and and silver ombré glassware are optional—but highly recommended.
