Characterized by the bold use of color and contrast and often uses metallic, glass, chrome, lacquer and mirrored accents, the style started in the 1920’s and 30’s and combines Art Deco and Mid Century Modern trends. Pioneers of Hollywood Regency style including Dorothy Draper

and Paul R. Williams
, who used sophistication and opulence to create classic and timeless designs for actors and directors wishing to emulate the glamour of Hollywood sets in their own homes.

print for the Beverly Hills Hotel. After mulling back and forth between the two, I ultimately decided on the Martinique. You can read more about the shady history of these iconic prints here
