Hollywood with a TwistContemporary Kitchen, Melbourne
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add some blingAn essential part of Art Deco style was creating drama and introducing the sense of grandeur seen on the silver screen. Highly polished chrome, brass, stainless steel and gold finishes were used in abundance. Dazzling metallics and mirror finishes were employed in the manufacture of furniture, fashion and in architecture. Handles were the icing on the cake in Art Deco-style kitchens, and were often chrome or gold toned with curved or geometric forms. They often included cut glass that looked like crystal. Designer tip: Keep the style and detailing of your cabinetry simple and then choose a striking handle to be the hero piece of the design. Alternatively, go bold with reflective surfaces such as this mirrored island bench front, for added glamour and impact.
Make magic with mirrorsChild-free homes (or empty nests) can add glamour galore with the help of mirrors, whether on the face of your island, the splashback or just a well-positioned full-length mirror leaning up against one wall. Hollywood Regency style is only a few steps away.
