Lessons from the Oscars

There is no better time to take note of upcoming fashion trends than the much anticipated awards season; where ‘Hollywood Royalty’ parades the handiwork of top tier fashion designers. The 2016 Academy Awards was one of the biggest Red Carpet Events of the Season, and the fashion certainly did not disappoint. Interior Trends often mirror those on the runway, and Sunday night was no exception.

​Popcorn in hand, we tuned into E! as our favourite stars and starlets arrived on the Red Carpet. Our pick for Best Dressed was none other than Lady Gaga, who epitomised Hollywood glam in a white Brandon Maxwell designed pants suit and overskirt.. Reminiscent of Marilyn Munroe, we couldn’t help but be inspired by her ensemble.

​We created our mood board based on the clean lines, subtle pleating and structure of the suit, which happens to be the same hue as Benjamin Moore’s colour of the year for 2016 – Simply White. Gaga’s outfit was complemented by 90 carat emerald-cut diamond drops from Lorraine Schwartz, which inspired our selection of subtle bling on the throw pillow and table lamp. The tufted Sofa and Ottoman are perfectly suited (pun intended) for the Hollywood glam living room, and the white pleated drapes accentuated the formality of the space.

​We are totally in love with this white on white trend for interiors this year; and while we agree that upkeep may be a bit challenging, you’d be surprised at just how much wear and tear white can truly withstand.
