Hollywood Regency Style in Interior Design
Hollywood Regency style emerged in the 1930s, when celebrities like Rita Hayworth and Joan Crawford started decorating their homes with glamour and glitz flavor on the advice of the famous interior designers of the time Dorothy Draper and William Haines. It's modern version is growing in popularity upheld by designers like David Jimenez, the vice president of visual merchandising and store design for Hallmark Cards.
The designer's projects reveal his passion for design and his eye for detail. He also writes a monthly interior design column for Kansas City Spaces (spaceskc.com) that defines his stylish interiors as "a study in elegant living--Cary Grant meets modern style".
