Hollywood Regency Style originated in what was considered the golden age of Hollywood, the 1930s. The film sets at that time were created with highly theatrical accents which were often brightly colored. Designers from Hollywood's Golden Age, like William Haines and Dorothy Draper, encouraged West Coast film luminaries to decorate their home with overtones of glitz and glamour and a new design style emerged. The 1930s Hollywood Regency style was a favorite of celebrities ranging from actress Joan Crawford to the future First Lady, Nancy Reagan. Hollywood Regency design, however, is not a relic of the past, there's no denying the high Hollywood style is back.
