We’re all about mixing styles here at Jungalow. In the past, we’ve talked about “Afribo” — a mix of African and Bohemian design styles, or Scandibo, a mix of Scandinavian and Bohemian design styles, and today, we wanna discuss a style that we’re calling Bohemian Regency — a mix of Hollywood Regency and Bohemian design styles. Why, you ask? Well, scrolling through some of my favorite sites for vintage home furnishings, like Chairish, I often come across rattan or bamboo furniture pieces, or beautiful brass palm tree lamps — and they are described as Hollywood Regency. That got me thinking about mixing the two styles and what that would look and feel like.
Hollywood Regency style is glitz, glamour, and gold, relating to the “golden age” of Hollywood in the 1930’s. Regency decor has an emphasis on glam, luxurious textures and finishes–lots of mirrored furniture, satins, velvets, animal prints and florals are used. Bohemian design, of course, is more down to earth, using more natural materials, handmade items, and global, collected finds. So how to blend these two styles together??
These two can be complimentary by balancing a bit of glitz and glam with the right amount of natural materials, botanical prints and quirky, collected items. We’ve also noticed that quite a few of the Hollywood Regency Style items seem to take inspiration from Moroccan design, as does Bohemian design (notice the Moroccan-style coffee table and side table in our renderings, below. We can dig this Bohemian Regency thang. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite Bohemian Regency looks to help bring home that earthy glamour! All these pieces are from our partner site, Chairish.
