If SAG Awards Gowns Were Rooms…

The red carpet of last night’s Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards brought to mind many a room.  From the daring risk takers to the tastefully understated, dresses from the event bear strong resemblances to some stunning feats of interior design.  Thus, if gowns from the 2017 SAG Awards were rooms, they’d look like this…

Nicole Kidman donned my favorite gown of the evening, putting the “siren” in “screen siren” with a none too subtle ornithology themed dress.  With a parrot head on each shoulder–complete with real feathers–and cascading green sequins, her dress called to mind Jared Seligman’s kelly green living room that features of collection of taxidermy birds, including a parrot and peacock as shown above.

Busy Philipps was another risk taker who dazzled.  Although camouflage and sequins do not traditionally go hand in hand, perhaps they should.  Her gown channeled the sparkle, violet hues, and camo print that make this Parisian apartment by Sandra Benhamou so enchanting.

A Deco dagger motif and the glamor of gold form an undeniable bond between this powder room and Zuri Hall’s 2017 SAG Awards gown.

Judith Light redefined ageless in a slinky, velvet, royal blue gown.  Similarly, this room–with it’s simple shapes and monochromatic moody blues–is equally timeless.

One can always count on Viola Davis for a clean, polished, and stunning look on the red carpet.  Last night’s white gown kept that tradition alive.  Notice how her necklace mimics the Sputnik chandelier and how the peaks of her neckline imitate the arched tops of the dining chairs in this room by Vicente Wolf.

Delicate flesh tone hues and intricate pattern adorn both Emily Blunt and this dining room.

Both feature a black floral pattern and both tease an intimate reveal.  The subject of the portrait in the Hotel Providence bears a shoulder while Emma Stone’s gown suggests  a “wardrobe malfunction”.

Perhaps more revealing, however, was Julie Bowen’s lacework dress with geometric panels that could easily be attributed to trelliage–like that found in this sunroom.

Hats off to all the ladies who graced the red carpet of the 2017 SAG Awards last night, especially these gorgeous 8.  Oscars, you’re on deck!

If Dresses from the 2017 Golden Globes Were Rooms…

Dresses from the 2017 Golden Globes red carpet composed a display worthy of the hype this event receives.  And, since fashion and interior design are so inextricably intertwined, it’s only prudent that we explore how the garb of starlets translates to interior decoration.  If you could haul last night’s red carpet into the home, it might look something like this…

Mustard can smolder–especially when worn by Emily Ratajkowski.  Besides sharing a hue, her dress and this room have something else in common: both featured a simply shaped metallic accent.  Emily’s glittering collar plunges down the front of her dress, while a mirrored coffee table adds a silvery pop to this Jerry Jacobs designed interior.

Lola Kirke, star of Mozart in the Jungle, showcased her natural beauty in minimal makeup, almost no jewelry, and a playful pink a-line gown studded with pansies.  Similarly, this living room by Maddux Creative keeps things simple and stylish with just a dash of pink and a grid of floral photographs.

If you didn’t know who Trace Lysette was, you do now.  The stunning screen siren donned a formfitting, green dress to the 2017 Golden Globes.  It was difficult–if not impossible–to take notice of her.  Not unlike Lysette, this dining room features a stunning fireplace whose statuesque form is emphasized by ornate flourishes rendered in a show-stopping emerald shade.

Ruth Negga’s red carpet gown was shimmering, temperate, and decidedly modern.   Her sequins instantly reminded me of foxed mirrored walls and the cool, tasteful restraint of this dining room.

The 2017 Golden Globes made a case for the return of menswear.  My favorite example of this was Octavia Spencer’s choice.  Instead of black, she went with navy, which photographs beautifully on the red carpet.  Statement earrings and a cropped, ankle-length pant femmed up her ensemble.  Satin accents and velvet heels provided for some textural variety.  Surely Peter Mikic would approve.  His bedroom too is navy, masculine, and has a touch glamour.

If Met Gala Gowns Were Rooms…

The Met Gala 2016 was–not surprisingly–fecund with eye candy and inspiring fashion that, in many cases, recalls equally stunning interiors.  Here are 5 such instances…

What do this Miles Redd decorated room and Kendall Jenner’s Met Gala 2016 gown have in common?  How about dizzying patterns (faintly reminiscent of trelliage) in classic blue and white?  That and they can both be described as arrestingly beautiful.

Nude meets grapefruit to form the shade that best describes Beyonce’s Met Gala gown and this stunning room by Suzanne Tucker.  However, the similarities don’t end there.  Notice how the moody abstract art echoes Beyonce’s smoky eye makeup.

Met Gala 2016 | If Gowns Were Rooms on Motley Decor | Olivia Wilde

Katherine Kwong and Olivia Wilde were on the same wave length when they chose this door and gown, respectively.  In both bases, the studs and rivets impart an edgy feel to something that was already gorgeous.

With neutral bases–one in white and one in black–both this Spanish bedroom and Zoe Saldana’s gown for the Met Gala 2016 celebrate colorful plumage (or fur).  After all, mother nature’s wonders always trump man’s.
