Red Carpet Inspired Design: 2016 Grammy Awards

Whenever I see a woman with a strong sense of style, I can’t help but wonder what her home might look like.  Is it as fashionable as she is?  Last night, as I watched the 2016 Grammys, I marveled at songstresses like Lady Gaga, Florence Welch, and Adele as they paraded across the red carpet–curious to know how their styles carried over into home decor.  Here’s how I imagined each of their outfits might translate into a diva-worthy vanity area…

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga 2016 Grammys Red Carpet Inspired Design

Lady Gaga–never one for subtlety–glided across the red carpet in a sapphire blue Asian-inspired gown, paired with towering red platforms.  Her hair and makeup were equally strong and the overall effect was stunning.  For her hypothetical vanity, a Chinese Art Deco rug echoes the vibe of her dress.  The desk and mirror take their color cue from the blue rug.  Black Murano glass sconces recall the embroidery and the funky red chair is as unexpected as her shoe choice.

Florence Welch

Florence Welch 2016 Grammys Red Carpet Inspired Design

Florence Welch looked whimsical in minimal makeup, flaming locks, and blush pink chiffon, embellished with sequined appliques.  The shape of her dress was relaxed, boho, and maybe a little 70s.  I imagined her vanity would follow suit.  A pink wicker peacock chair would serve as her throne and blend into rose quartz painted walls.  A silver Moroccan pouf and star-shaped lantern both reinforce the bohemian feel with their similar geometric designs.  In lieu of a traditional vanity, I gave her a trompe l’oeil lucite table that feels delicate and mimics her long skirt.  On top sits an antique vanity mirror and red votive candle holders.


Adele 2016 Grammys Red Carpet Inspired Design

Adele showed up a glittering black number with classic appeal.  Her look remained fresh thanks to soft makeup and unfussy hair.  I imagined her primping in an all-black room with walls covered in Cole & Son’s draped design.  A black lacquer console table serves as her vanity, accompanied by a chair with hand-applied egg shell that gives the illusion of sparkle.  A Venetian mirror in black adds a touch of glamour.  Underfoot is an over-dyed ebony rug and overhead is a simple alabaster globe pendant that glows like her pretty face.

I can’t wait to see what inspiration the Oscars’ red carpet provides…
