Ever since a recent trip to Los Angeles I have been enchanted by Hollywood Regency Style. The style may be defined as a blend of Neo-classical eclecticism mixed with Hollywood glamour and a playful modern mix. Hollywood Regency was a style of architecture and decoration popular in the 1960's in Los Angeles. Essentially it was a revival of classical regency style injected with a heavy dose of modern detailing. Hollywood Regency added a layer of pattern and decoration and opulence and glamour to the minimalism of mid-century modernism.
Lighting and accessories designer Barbara Cosgrove brings us a few select pieces from her collection that have that Hollywood Regency flair. I absolutely love the Boy and Girl Porcelain lamps, (pictured above), with the mirrored silver shade. These accessories are playful, modern while upholding the opulence and glamour that is a strong component of the Hollywood Regency style.
