Give your home a Hollywood makeover

For a classic, stylish interior scheme, try looking to the glitz and glamour of retro Hollywood for inspiration.

Here are our tips for bringing the elegance of an old movie into your home.

In the frame

Take your style cues from the black and white films of yesteryear, and have your family photographs printed in black and white.

Mounting them in black frames will create a monochrome scheme which is simple and classic.

Or swap several images for one large, striking black and white printed canvas in a thick, dark frame.

Go for gold

From the stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to the iconic Oscar statue, Hollywood is all about glamourous gold - so use it to add a touch of glitz to your home.

Ornaments are simple but effective way to do this, so invest in a golden vase like this one from Dunelm Mill, or try a gold candle holder or photo frame.

In the bedroom, invest in a duvet cover like this Blenheim Gold Luxury Jacquard Duvet Cover and couple it with gold pillow cases and a complementary throw to create an elegant space to rest.

Lights, camera, action

Make sure you're always ready for your close up with a striking stand-alone lighting feature in your living room.

This Antique Copper tripod floor lamp from Made will act as a feature piece and flood your room with light.

Budding interior designers can even hunt for their own vintage spotlight, like these ones on Pinterest.

Quirky accessories

Take the theme a step further by including movie-themed accessories and ornaments in your interior scheme.

Quirky items like the camera in this hallway take a bit of work to find, but create a unique look - find your inspiration from this range on Pinterest and start your search on eBay and Etsy.
