Gorgeous glitz and glamour were at a height in 1930s Hollywood. Film stars and movie execs gave lavish parties in their homes which had to be over-the-top gorgeous! This Golden Era style made a comeback a few years ago and is still being embraced by some interior designers, such as Barclay Butera. He recently shared his take on glamorous Hollywood style with HGTV, "The wonderful fabrics, fringe on lampshades, light fixtures with crystals - Hollywood Regency style is about glamour, but so much is found in the wonderful details."

Here are a few ways you can add a touch of sumptuous Hollywood design to your space. Let's start with mirrors:

Dita Von Teese, featured here in a glamorous Hollywood dressing room, is the epitome of the modern day glam era. The setting: A mirrored vanity set amongst two mirrored dressing tables topped with tall elegant flower arrangements. Anything and everything mirrored goes with the style. Many of the 30s starlets were photographed in their dressings rooms seated at a similar mirrored vanity to Von Teese's.
