Looking Back: Ode to Mr. Haines

Hollywood Regency Style is enjoying a resurgence these days, and we love Mr. William Haines’ elegant, original versions of this style.

Haines was a movie star in the 1930s and became an interior designer after being blacklisted in Hollywood for being openly gay.  His sleek, stylish interiors transformed the look of Hollywood.

For this event, we updated the classic furniture and grand proportions, and used flowers to replace the opulence of the gilded detailing.

Who are some of your favorite classic designers?
