Planning My Hollywood Regency Bedroom

It's been 10 years since I've changed up my bedroom

  I couldn't decide what style I wanted until I found my inspiration pieces.


I love these ice blue or maybe silver blue pillow shams


Then I saw this mirrored side table at SteinMart and thought eureka....I will go with a Hollywood Regency look.


It seems there is a lot of different elements to Hollywood Regency.  It's a mix of old Hollywood glamour....Think gold, silver, chandeliers, mirrors and mirrored furniture, lacquered furniture, luxe fabrics, and art deco pieces mixed with antiques.

(source e-how)
Since I am not a decorator, I'm not sure if everything I incorporate into my bedroom will follow all of the "Rules" of Hollywood Regency....I guess it will be more like my interpretation.  Here's a few items I found to get started

This hat box was $7.00 Home Goods.....


......And these pillows for $12.00 and $15.00.....


I love this frame for $6.99


I will use the chandelier that is already in the bedroom.....This is the before picture...You will have to wait a couple weeks for the After


I got these luxurious looking drapes at Ikea for a song....Ikea has the best prices!


I will start the transformation by painting my bedroom next week in a silver blue called "Mountain Air " from Sherwin Williams



I planned to already have the painting done but, my A/C went out.....Moan....5 days without air in Florida!  Holy Molly...it was hot.....But, I have a new A/C and I'm up and running again.  The A/C unit was 30 years old and should have been replaced 10 years ago, but I just kept putting Band-Aids on it.  Of course it would finally conk out in August, not January lol!

Here I am lounging in my robe after my bedroom is done lol!


Pre-planning is half the fun!  I will keep you updated on my bedroom redo, I'm hoping it all comes together like my vision!

If you don't hear from me for a few days, don't worry, all is fine.   I'm just having fun re-doing my bedroom!

Happy Creating!
Carol

What a great idea! I love it. Funny, I recently was on the fence about mirrored furniture, but came down on the side of liking it. Can't wait to see the whole room, lucky duck you already have that chandelier!

Kathy said...

I am looking forward to seeing your interpretation and I know it will be something special. Happy to hear you are "keeping cool"!!

Connie said...

Carol, I am so excited about your change . . . if anyone can pull it off, it is you. I will be looking forward to each and every post until I see the finished room. It is going to be beautiful.
When you posted that photograph of Lauren Bacall, had you heard about her death. She was a true "movie star", back when Hollywood was celebrating it's Golden Age. I grew up watching old black and white movies . . . they are the best.
Have fun painting.
Connie :)

Debbie said...

I really can't wait to see it, Carol. The elements so far are perfect. I guess since Lauren Bacall passed away, I have her on the brain this morning. I think your room will be very Bacall.

OneSkyviewBlue said...

I agree with Debbie, your look will be very Lauren Bacall. I love the picture frame and the mirrored nightstand. Can't wait.

It's going to be fabulous! Sometimes all it takes is once piece to inspire an entire room; I love that mirrored side table. Have fun this week.

Cynthia said...

Carol, the things I am seeing are beautiful. Can't imagine no AC in Florida and right now especially. I remember visiting there often as a kid and it was so hot and humid. So excited to see the new room. Can't wait!

I love the old Hollywood Glamour look in a bedroom and have wanted to try that look in my guest bedroom
love those drapes
can't wait to see it completed

Ann said...

What fun! Lots of items and colors to play with to get the look you are going for. Then you can relax in a new robe, nighty, and slippers...martini in hand, bon bons, flipping pages of a new magazine and enjoying your lovely new surroundings feeling so special and pampered. Can't wait for the tour.
