The Hollywood style is over-the-top, with many accents of glitz and glamour. Think of a space that is alluring, thrilling, sophisticated…gorgeous! It’s a very rich look. But you don’t have to spend rich to get some Hollywood elements in your decor.
Going “Glam” is all about details. Add embellishments like fringe on lampshades and jewels on chandeliers. These details may seem small, but a few of them in a room add a great deal of glamour.
Purchase one mirrored piece for the room. Mirrored furniture adds a striking touch to a Hollywood style. You can find side tables, coffee tables, armoires, and even upholstered stools highlighted with mirrors. Look also for tables in lacquer and Lucite.
Choose luxorious fabrics. Velvet is a great choice for sofas and drapery panels. Silk is perfect for furniture, pillows, draperies, and lampshades. Make sure your carpet is thick and lush.
Introduce bold colors. The Hollywood Glamour style is certainly not shy. Rich, hot reds and dramatic shiny black are very popular. Color is a great place to start if you love this look. Simply by adding vivid colors, you can achieve a striking Hollywood feel.
Mix and match. One fun part about this style is that you don’t have to worry about matching. It’s meant to be an eclectic mix of styles. While you are mixing together your different pieces, though, don’t forget that the overall theme – and your coordinating element – is luxurious glamour.
The Hollywood style is from an era where people really wanted to impress each other with their homes. Adding anything showy into your decorating scheme will give your home the sense of glamour that is just so “Hollywood.” But today’s version is more elegant and subdued.
