I don’t like people to label me. I feel like I am a women of many talents and tastes and I have an appreciation for the many things life has to offer. But this weekend someone placed a label on me and instead of being upset by it I found myself freed.
I felt like one of those people who appear on the T.V. show Mystery Diagnostics or The Finder when in just a short 30 minute episode all of life’s questions that have been nagging at them for years were finally explained.
My diagnosis…..my birth mother…..Hollywood Regency. I had no idea there was a name for my affliction, my attraction to all things mirrored yet modern, quirky but clean. But this weekend when someone said to me, “you’re going for that Hollywood Regency look right?” I was floored, all this time I was just picking out items for our house that was drawn to. I never really thought that I was following an actual design style or that Kelly Wearstler and Jonathan Adler were supposed to be my design heroes, I didn’t even know what I was doing had a name.
In that very moment I was freed from the design shackles that have been holding me back. Hallelujah!
Here are some photos of the Hollywood Regency style for you to enjoy!
