Last week, we posted about taking tips from a modern bed and breakfast on how you can transform your own bedroom into a minimalist and relaxing retreat. But if your idea of the perfect sleep space is a bit more glamorous, then you need not look any farther than the Hollywood Regency style to inspire your own luxurious bedroom. More after the jump!

As with any style, there are lots of elements that come together to make a room fall under the umbrella term of Hollywood Regency. You can choose many for a super-glamorous look or pick a few for just some hints of glam. Either way, these tips are great for sprucing up your bedroom (as well as any room!).

  • Chinoiserie You could go with some gorgeous Asian-inspired wallpaper, some equally gorgeous Asian-inspired draperies or perhaps just accessories. Chinoiserie is a definite for any room going for that Hollywood look.
  • Black, white and bold Black and white together, paired with your favorite bold and bright colors do wonders to create a glamorous space. Incorporate them in your bed, on furniture or in accessories.
  • Faux bamboo While this likely falls under the chinoiserie category, its prominence in Hollywood Regency interiors prompts its own mention. Bring in this element in furniture or even better, gorgeous wall mirrors.
  • Metallics and mirrored pieces You can't have a Hollywood room with out a little glitter. Experiment bringing in metallics in bed sheets, draperies or other soft elements, and add a fabulous mirrored furniture piece into the mix.
  • No clutter At first glance, a Hollywood Regency interior and a minimalist interior might not seem to have a lot in common, but both styles favor an edited selection of accessories and elements. Bring your favorite things in, but don't over do it! Hollywood Regency rooms look fabulous because of their rich and luxurious-looking elements, not because they are full to the brim with stuff.
