Award season came to an unfortunate and awkward close last night with the confusing plot twist at the end of The Academy Awards with the Best Picture winner announcement. That was totally crazy, huh? I felt so bad for the cast of La La Land and Moonlight.
I haven’t seen either movie yet, but can’t wait to see them now.
Either way, the red carpet was full of fashion eye candy and with this post I get to have fun fusing the worlds of Hollywood, fashion, and interiors with my red carpet fashion inspiration room interpretation postings.
I’m not sure when I
started watching, became obsessed with the award shows but the glitz and glam of Hollywood has long been an inspiration for me as well as the couture fashion houses.
Interiors tend to follow the trends of fashion design in many ways. Be it color, cultural influences, or textures. This past winter velvet was having a moment in the fashion world. Trust me you will see velvet textures emerge for interiors this 2017 winter season in pillows, drapes, and even sofas for the daring. It just takes a little longer for the interior world to embrace and adapt the trend.
The leading ladies didn’t have all the fun, the leading gents got in on the action too. In fact, I almost enjoyed the masculine room interpretations more. I like seeing men step out of the boring basic tuxedo and add a little more style to their suits, like Ryan Gosling and Mahershala Ali.
Tell me, which room interpretation is your favorite? Which did I nail? Totally miss?

Viola Davis was stunning in this red dress as she made history as an actress to win a Tony, Emmy, and Oscar.

Loved the retro shirt with the lettuce edge bib detail down the front Ryan wore to jazz up his tux. Ha, see what I did there?
Emma Stone wore my favorite dress of the night! The gold brocade, the long fringe makes me want to shimmy right here in my seat. You know you want to do it too.

This dress is whimsical with all of the different textures, lace, and beading. Texture plays a critical role in my neutral rooms.

Blue velvet dinner jacket sure helps you to stand out form the crowd Mr. Goreski.
Who can resist feathers? Not me!
This light fixture! I’d give anything to see it in person.
Here is the classic vampy velvet dress worn so well by Taraji P. Henson

I love the simpleness of this white tailored sequin dress, note the miss-matched yellow suede sandals.
Nice black on black tux with a pop of pattern with the pocket square sported by Mahershala Ali.

I think I love a white dinner jacket and the man bold enough to eat in one better than the traditional black jacket.
This neutral room is anything but boring with the handsome play of textures and shine, and it maintains its masculinity.
Woohoo, this was fun. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees. I’m almost tempted to do more of these with the After-Party looks. Celebs tend to be more daring and let their hair down with outfit selections and who knows what room interpretations those may inspire.
