Modern Design Styles and How to Achieve Them: Hollywood Glam
We all like a little bit of luxury from time to time. So why not make it our home? Today, continuing our modern styles series, we want to talk about the Hollywood Glam style that was originated in, you guessed it, California and became the talk of the town quite literally in a short time!
But what is Hollywood Glam?
This style was born after the exposition of the people to the luxurious homes seen in movies during Hollywood’s golden age, yet it became a timeless trend over the years. It is full of personality, bold choices, statement pieces, and glamor! If that sounds like you, you can keep reading to get some helpful tips to achieve this style in your home!
NO. 1 Be bold with textures and materials!
Unlike most modern interior styles that encourage being balanced throughout, Hollywood Glam is about the exact opposite! It is about mixing and matching, creating contrast, attracting attention while maintaining that classy look. Accordingly, you get to play around with different materials and textures to add more excitement to the room, as long as there is some consistency! For example, in the image above, our client has matched our luxurious transparent handles with acrylic bistro chairs that are statement pieces!
NO. 2 Don’t be afraid to use colors that will stand out!
Hollywood glam is known for classic and elegant colors, colors that will be a bold statement but won’t lose from being classy. Hence, we see a lot of dark colors and contrast between objects. One of the best ways to do this is to select some jewelry for your home that will make it pop, as our client did in their kitchen in the picture above!
NO. 3 Be playful with the shapes!
As we already mentioned, statement pieces play a significant role in this style, and it can be tricky to choose the right ones! A simple trick is to go with different shapes, mix and match them to create contrast without losing consistency. Remember, Hollywood is all about being different and over the top! So imagine the difference you could make by using unusual shapes in unusual places. This can be hexagon fixtures, like in the image above, or geosphere handles, like the ones from our latest luxe line (click here to see them!
