The 88th Academy Awards (or the Oscars, as the awards ceremony is officially known) is always an enthusiastic revelation when it comes to the approach to fashion, design and luxurious style.
On the top of that, this meaningful event is also a chance to take in some insight of Hollywood glitz and glamour. On the most important night of nights, gorgeous heroines in magnificent dresses and shimmering jewellery stroll the prestigious red carpet. I have decided to mark the splendid occasion by looking to the Oscars, and Hollywood stars for decor inspiration. Why not take some encouragement from the winners and add luxurious style to your home interiors? Below, I guide you through 5 Top Trends synonymous with the iconic, glamorous style. Are you intrigued already? If so, let’s start the countdown to announcing the Oscar winners this year.
And Oscar goes to…Metallic Gold
One of the easiest ways to bring drama and dazzling style into a room is incorporating gold. And metallic gold is the most fashionable shade in interior design. Injecting a dizzying selection of various finishes and undertones to your home conveys a luxurious abode into your house. Minuscule decorative elements like candle holders, bowls or sculptures mix beautifully. Metallic gold wallpaper will infuse a camouflage effect on the surrounding, blending glitzy style into space.
Strolling down the legendary Red Carpet
The truth is, the red carpet is an institution. Not only it is an essential component of every film industry event but also international movie premieres or galas cannot do without the legendary red carpet. Its vibrant, bright tone goes well in many surroundings, therefore implementing red carpet is crucial for your Hollywood-Glam interiors. I am not suggesting rolling out rich red, Persian rug from your entrance hall to the letterbox on the pavement on your front yard. We are seeking a little bit of attention but not that much, aren’t we? We do not want to be perceived as ridiculous by our lovely neighbours. The most functional, yet still oozing with magnificent splendour would be a vibrant red rug in one of the rooms. Not only it is a practical solution, but also chic and stylish, adding the sought-after Oscar trend to our home environment.
If, for some reasons, you are worried that a red rug will not work well in your guest room or bedroom, try laying down the legendary coloured rug in one of your corridors. That way the red runner will not be overwhelming the rooms’ existing layouts, and still doing the trick. Imagine your hallway decorated with the famous rug, transforming once hard and austere space into a fashionable hall.
Silver Screen featuring Art Deco elements
Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant or Humphrey Bogart are still in our hearts, iconic actors of the golden age of Hollywood cinema. Not only they graced the silver screen, but also left unforgettable memories of glamour and grandeur of the eclectic period. Why not hanging a portrait featuring your favourite actor or actress on the wall? You can go further with the visual drama by displaying movie stills or posters in the hallway or even in some rooms. If, on the other hand, Andy Warhol’s artwork has left a noticeable trace in your soul, decorate your home space with Art Deco accents. Art lovers and pop culture enthusiasts will be keen on the extravagant features, such as bold, geometric designs or colourful, vibrant patterns. To add drama to the big picture, adjust heavily ornamented mirrors and glossy surfaces to space. Your house will be a showcase of luxurious appeal and glitzy, Hollywood infusion.
Shining movie stars starring Shimmer and Sparkle
You cannot go overboard when implementing magnetic elements to the Oscar-inspired interiors. There are many ways to add high-shine furnishings and finishes to your decor. First of all, do not be afraid of introducing items that shimmer and sparkle. Tiffany Lamp lightings, crystal chandeliers, movie-star vanity mirrors in decorative frames and large bulbs are the most iconic elements that will add Hollywood glamour to your design. As mentioned before, sparkling metallic tones and glossy, lacquered surfaces will also highlight the mood of the space, creating the revolutionary style. The main reason for choosing Oscar style is feeling like million dollars. Therefore, lux materials and textures are a must. Silk, satin or velvet throw pillows, blankets and shawls, casually sprawled on the seating will enhance the room’s design significantly. Expensive materials and fabrics are soft to touch and exude elegance and cosiness. You cannot go wrong with an optical illusion of spaciousness too, created by glossy surfaces, glass ornaments, mirrors and shimmering shades.
Rubies, Sapphires, Amethysts, Emeralds… get inspiration from real gemstones
If your primary intention is to add the feeling of luxury to your Hollywood-style interiors, then Jewel Tones are the perfect, astonishing choice. Lighter hues or pastels would look dimmer and take the splendour out of the rooms. Highly intense, rich and vibrant colour shades, also known as Jewel Tones, make the design brighter and eye-catching. Some particular examples of those distinct tones include amethyst purple, ruby red, emerald green, sapphire blue, turquoise blue, topaz yellow or tourmaline green. Opting for those vibrant hues will elevate the space, but still working on the scheme of Oscar-style design. Another great way is to pair your jewel tone with black, white or platinum. These colours will create symmetry and balance, enhancing your accent hues. Never hesitate with dazzling Jewels Tones, as they infuse an air of sophistication while at the same time highlighting the dramatic overall appearance of the room.
I hope that thanks to my post you will incorporate these ideas into your home. I would love to see your interiors shining with Hollywood-style glamour. Get inspired by the luxe trends above, mixing and matching favourite elements, and adding them to your room’s design. Best of all that you do not need to spend buckets of money to reach the sophisticated, Oscar-style appearance.
Make good use of my tips and ideas, a little sparkle, some Jewel Tones elements, luxurious materials and you will add lots of Hollywood glam to your interiors.
