Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

In the Land of Holly

Ok so the title is a wee bit cheesy but I couldn't resist. I am in LA this week/weekend for business, staying in a fab hotel (The London) in West Hollywood. I thought that it would be the perfect chance to re-visit one of my favorite decor styles--Hollywood regency. 


The lovely Julie over at Chapman Interiors blog summarized the style as being comprised of the following elements:


* Mixing styles/decades is a must
* Something influenced by our eastern friends.
* Graphic pattern.
* A black and white element.
* Brass/gold.
* At least one chrome thing.
* Bold color
* Punchy wall paper.
* Opulent light fixtures & oversize chandeliers.
* Details in vignettes.



My favorite parts? The brass and the black and white. I love shiny things what can I say?




How amazing is this black and white room? Bold, yes. Amazing, yes. 


Add in a little color (how amazing are those chairs?!)...


This space looks so cozy and inviting...

Wow, this is not a room that is very copy-able but I seriously love it. Again with the black and white...

And a few pics from the London where I am staying (not taken by me)...
