Must Haves With Hollywood Regency Decorating:
1. Lacquer Furniture
Hollywood Regency focuses on glamour, shine and glitz. Lacquer everything from furniture frames to accesssories. Hollywood Regency style used a lot of glossy colors on furniture.
Buy super glossy spray paint and do it yourself. Paint your dining chairs, and upholster the seat cushions in a fabric that coordinates with the color.
Consider first picking out the right fabric and matching the paint up perfectly in a gloss finish.
Glossy paint doesn't cover well when it comes to hand painting. Don't make the same mistake I did, using 12 coats of paint to cover your walls. Consider painting your walls in a flat paint for a base, and use the exact same color in an ultra shine for your top coat. This trick applies to anything that needs paint. Flat paint also can be used as a primer in some (not all) instances.
Spray paint, on the other hand is much different. Spray paint is perfect for furniture because it proves an even finish within minutes. The paint is often saturated and typically a piece of furniture needs just two coats of spray paint.

2. Consider Velvet Drapes For A Rich Effect
Consider buying vibrant Velvet drapes, and match the color of the drapes with your wall paint. Again, match up the color of the drapes with the paint. Paint can be matched perfectly at any paint store, so it makes sense to shop for your upholstery, or fabric first.
