4 Ways To Create A Vintage Hollywood Glam Interior

Transform your living space into a captivating, vintage haven that exudes old-world charm.

This glamorous Hollywood vibe is for the bold and sophisticated, a place where daring and elegance meet. A style all about statement pieces, intricate patterns and rich textures. Colours are strong and deep, accentuated by metallics, mirrors and the beautiful lighting.

1. Use bold colours, prints or layers

Forget about minimalism here – It’s layer upon layer, texture on texture, deep tones, metallics and drama. Go bold with your favourite deep colours. Any of the popular jewel tones would work well, as do emerald green, mustard, teal, navy and burgundy.

If you start with black and white and add a splash of your chosen colour palette you absolutely can’t go wrong. Don’t forget gold and metallics – it’s all about the added extra sparkle!

2. Play with statement pieces

tatement pieces are an absolute must and one of the first things you should purchase when designing with vintage Hollywood Glam in mind. Stay away from anything too minimal, raw or retro – this is about stepping into the spotlight!

When choosing art, I think of figurative art and sculptures – bold is the word to keep in mind here! Find a hero piece to work in each room and create the design around it, whether that’s a piece of artwork, an amazing rug, a sculpture or a dramatic piece of furniture.  Choose a piece that speaks to you and work with it.

Ready to make a statement in your room? Take a look at Jonathan Adler,  Regency Distribution or  Boyd Blue.

3. Add Antiques

Antiques are the perfect way to add a touch of vintage Hollywood glam to your space. Flea markets in Europe are an absolute gold mine, full of amazing pieces and luxe finds.

Shapiro right here in Australia have auctions throughout the year with beautiful furniture, fine arts and luxury items; they are a must for Hollywood glam looks. I also recommend Lunatiques and Mitchell Road.

If you’re in NSW, the Southern Highlands is such a great region to explore for antiques, with stunning pockets of markets and vintage stores to discover. One of my faves is Dirty Janes in Bowral.

4. Create balance

The delicate art of harmonizing Hollywood glam in a room requires balance. Without it, a room can feel crowded. While eye-catching pieces are vital, too many of them will make a room appear and feel overwhelmed – with everything vying for attention there is nowhere for the eye to focus and rest.

If you’re working in a smaller space, scale plays a big part in the design process. Choose the right size furniture to begin with, then work with light tones, rather than dark (or use carefully).  A white ceiling, a well-placed mirror or a mirrored wall all let light into the room and will make your space feel a lot bigger.

This style screams boldness, sophistication and luxury. When you take bold colours and statement pieces and place them together with perfect balance, wonderful things will happen.
