Old Hollywood Glamour Décor
Located in sunny SoCal, a Hollywood-inspired interior should incorporate easy, breezy California style. Beachy details will pair beautifully with a filmic print. A white or ivory base will look effortlessly Californian, and appear reminiscent of the iconic bungalow style. Comfy details will create the signature laid-back look.
Vintage Décor Ideas
Borrow from the Hollywood regency era and focus on blending comfort with style. Cozy, luxurious textiles can be paired with metallic, ornate details for a traditional look. If you’re still in the process of curating your vintage-inspired interior, choose a piece of wall art that looks classic and can blend with a wide variety of color palettes. A colorless print with a minimalist theme is perfect for any Hollywood-style space, as long as the subject is reminiscent of the City of Angels.
Sticking to classic colors is key. Shades of soft neutrals like white, grey, nude, and tan serve as a perfect foundation for the rest of your interior. Don’t be afraid to add bold-colored details in hues like navy blue and burgundy red. Ditch the modern silver accents for a more traditional gold. As long as you stay away from gaudy colors and commit to sophistication, your space will look ultra-glamorous. Layering monochromatic tones will give you the freedom to add some dramatic flair.
Big, Bold Patterns
Speaking of dramatic flair, a chic way to add some visual dimension is by committing to bold patterns. Art deco-inspired rugs are geometric while still looking classy. You can also choose curtains that have a vintage pattern for a retro touch. If you’re looking for a simple piece of wall art to complement your boldly patterned details, this print from our artist Sean Salvadori's collection is equal parts daring and understated:
Indulge in Texture
If there’s one thing Hollywood loves, it’s texture. From velvet to chenille, and silk to satin, it’s all about mixing and matching luxurious fabrics. While silk makes the best choice for bedding, faux-fur furniture pieces make great accessories. Faux-fur can also be used for pillows or a fabulously fluffy rug!
All That Glitters is Gold
Even if your home revolves around neutrals, you can still add some tasteful shimmer and shine. From light fixtures to luxurious lamps, look for reflective gold hardware. Crystal-style knobs are also a great way to introduce a bit of sparkle without going overboard.
Gold candlesticks and gilded vases are easy-to-find accessories that can make all the difference in the overall appearance of your interior. The idea is to make your space look positively divine (even if the gold is really gold-plated!)
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the power of an ornate mirror. With gold frames and baroque details, floor length mirrors can make a room pop. Besides hanging a physical mirror, you can also look for mirrored furniture such as coffee tables and vanities.
Wherever you choose to add a mirror, make sure your jewel-toned accents are on full display so that they can be reflected on the surface of the mirror. This will amplify the designer details and prevent your space from looking too dull.
Décor That Makes a Statement
Even though we emphasized the importance of subtlety in a glamorous interior, it is Hollywood after all! If you’re searching for a piece that exemplifies the appeal of the entertainment industry, consider installing a sparkling chandelier. From the Millennium Biltmore to the Beverly Hills Hotel, chandeliers are a part of Hollywood’s legacy.
For something fashion-forward to balance your traditional chandelier, we suggest this stylish print as the perfect movie wall art.
Movie Room Wall Décor
If you’re lucky enough to have a dedicated movie room, don’t forget about decorating the walls! You want to set the scene for late night binging, and give your home theater wall decor a good old Hollywood face lift. Searching for the ideal theater room wall décor? Choose a piece that highlights the beauty of California and the famous film industry. Our favorite movie canvas art is this tribute to the Golden State:
Black and White Hollywood Prints
