How to Bring Old Hollywood into Your Home

The late 1920s to the early 1960s, Hollywood experienced a golden age where glamorous celebrities and extravagant fashion ran the show. This period exudes luxurious elements that can inspire home interior design and decor. Vintage furniture and flashy accents will transform your home from a drab space to an elegant oasis fit for a movie star. We rounded up several ways to bring Hollywood into your home by effortlessly capturing the glitzy enchantment of old Hollywood aesthetic.

Old Hollywood homes are defined by their grand foyers welcoming visitors with a big gesture. Rod iron gates outlined with golden accents are an essential part to A-list celebrities’ homes of old Hollywood. Having an impressive entrance to your home sets up the lavish theme that will be carried throughout the house.

Having designated entertainment spots located in the interior and exterior of your home is necessary to grasp the lively mood of old Hollywood. Transform your backyard into a Gatsby-like world with a stone lined patio perfect for a dance floor, surrounded by big clear bulbs to light up the night. Add a glass table with white wicker chairs and bright cushions to achieve the old-time aesthetic.

To throw indoor parties that entail the lavish lifestyle of old Hollywood stars, choose lighting that is true to the time period. Arc floor lamps with brass shades cast a soft glow into any room setting a dim atmosphere ideal for dancing and sipping cocktails. A vintage bar cart decorated with shiny metallics or finished with glass detail is an excellent addition to entertain party guests. Combining silvery bar accessories with crystal glasses will define the luxe look of old Hollywood.

Take your guests back in time with an elegant dining area worthy of a celebrity’s company. Invite guests to sit at a long table topped with a marble finish surrounded by tulip chairs to ensure a modern vibe that began to emerge during the old Hollywood period. Be sure to pay attention to detail when it comes to table setting. Don’t be hesitant to mix and match various types of metals and glasses for tableware to achieve a modern twist to a classic set up. To complete the old Hollywood look, choose a collection of place-settings that represent a sense of glam to pull all the richness together for a fabulous home interior.
