Hollywood Regency Modern

Las Vegas Luxe is how I describe COLOR, a salon by Michael Boychuck at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. Designed by Faye Resnick, the salon is a modern approach to Hollywood Regency style. High lacquer white paint and silver leaf finishes, venetian mirror, crystal chandeliers and a wall of translucent white shimmering glass tile. Slightly retro and futuristic at the same time....I can't help but think of the 1968 movie, Barbarella.  I don't know how or why my brain makes associations like this.  I've never even seen the movie.  Somehow, I doubt that images of Barbarella were on Faye's inspiration board but they would have been on mine..

The movie is a so-so campy romp through space, but you'll love the costumes! And Jane looked fabulous.
