After being huge in the ‘30s, Hollywood Regency style is making a modern comeback.

The over-the-top style is not just for the rich and famous; there has recently been an increase in a modern day version being chosen throughout Britain's homes.

With the trend increasing, Victoria Plumb, the UK’s leading online bathroom company are showing how this Hollywood look can be achieved within the bathroom.

This decorating style is all about the glitz and glam of luxurious living that encompasses a range of neoclassical styles developed in the early 19th century; characterized by sleek lines, colour, drama and contrast.

To achieve this look within a bathroom, fill it with bold, vibrant tones such as reds, yellows and turquoise and contrast them against white or black flooring or tiling to create a dramatic effect. Victoria Plumb’s Arc bathroom suite (as seen in the attached image) has been designed to incorporate this theme, with bright red tiling and accessories, contrasted against a high gloss, black floor and bold white sanitary ware.

Furnishings should be arranged for conversation, as this style is centred on creating a focal point. A roll top bath is the ideal way to create a main feature as it represents luxury. The Arc roll top bath is available in both small and large to fit within all bathroom shapes and sizes; by placing it in the centre of the bathroom, or elevating it, your attention is instantly drawn to it.

Lighting and Detail
The little details are what bring the theme to life. Accessories made from glass or crystal is a great way to accentuate the Hollywood Regency style; store bathroom essentials in cut glass jars and match the soap dispenser and light pull to it. Continue the theme by including a cut glass mirror if there is available space.

To enhance the room further, choose a light fitting such as sparkling chandelier or install traditional Hollywood spot lights. This will highlight specific room features and complement your room décor.
