Ok, so I'm admittedly enamored with Hollywood Regency as an interior style. I'm certainly not an expert, but I'm most definitely, a fan. I love the mix of the curvy, glam with the streamline, modern; the 50's palette knife art with asian ceramics and figurines; the mod, graphic pattern with rich, textured fabrics and floor coverings. I love the tension, the irreverance, the confidence that it expresses.
My best friend is also a big fan of Hollywood Regency, yet our houses couldn't be more different. My house is more on the modern side of the equation, hers leans heavily to the glam side. There are nods to Hollywood Regency throughout my house like the highback, black leather club chair I found at a garage sale for $75, but overall, it's pretty midcentury meets rough vintage meets contemporary in flavor. What I love about Hollywood Regency as a style, is the fundamental flexibility it allows for personal iteration. It's all about the mix, and my pal's mix is very different than mine.
Well I just found a contemporary sconce and chandelier (of which I don't know the actual name of because I don't speak french. 1,000 apologies) at the site ugly home that feels so Hollywood Regency in it's mixing of metaphors and unabashed confidence yet also, so modern and "of today" in its sensibility and execution. I could imagine this sconce looking fabulous in either of our houses, which is no small feat. It's kind of like a Hollywood Regency 2.0 sconce, referential and fresh all at the same time. Mm.
