Inspired: Jean Harlow

Film actress Jean Harlow was America's sex symbol of the 1930s. Also known as the "Platinum Blonde" and the "Blonde Bombshell," this glamorous, gorgeous woman embodied Hollywood glamour. Starring in such films as Red Dust and Platinum Blonde, she appeared onscreen beside leading men Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable, and James Cagney.

This actress, whose personal life was marked by tragedy, was absolutely magnetic onstage and onscreen, and the immense force of her personality is still evident today, with stars such as Gwen Stefani emulating her look (Stefani, in fact, played Harlow in The Aviator). And of course, we know what Nicole Ritchie named her little girl. As a small homage to this glamorous woman, I thought I'd put together a Hollywood-Harlow-worthy look.

To see my room,


I kept the color palette simple, emphasizing whites and silvers, while laying down a cool, deep blue wool rug, which would ground the room. With a splash of teal in the pillows, which picks up on the soothing blue tone, the rest of the room is left to shine with mirrors, chandelier, silver, and white tufted leather sofa and ottoman. I also added a few elements from the animal world, including an elephant side table and a silver stag antler wall hanging. Jean Harlow was nothing if not a fighter, and I wanted these more "wild" elements to translate her amazing spirit.

I love the panel, the sofa and all the accessories, except for the elephant table. I'd have gone with something deco to represent her era.
