Although the Oscars and other award shows are behind us, celebrity fashion and red carpet looks are still on everyone’s radar. Here are 5 ways to add some Academy-award-inspired appeal to your living space.
Less is always more. Sometimes, too much glitz and glamor can be gaudy and distracting – on the red carpet and in your home For a simple, classy look, think clean lines and no clutter. Invest in stow-away storage pieces, like ottomans or benches, that can be used in more ways than one.
Bright lights. Large windows, sky lights, and sliding doors offer beautiful lighting and give your home a bright, luxurious feel. If new windows or sky lights aren’t in your budget, lighten up your space with some high-quality light fixtures, light- or off-white paint on the walls, and mirrors to reflect the light around the room.
Think rich. Deep burgundy, luxurious cream accents, and rich mahogany brown furniture can give your home a lustrous appeal. Add a pop of color to one wall or the ceiling, wrap your windows in soft, lush drapery, upgrade your dining room set, or find a brightly-colored area rug.
Make a statement. If you really want to make a particular room stand out, start with a signature piece and work around it. Add a few simple, modern elements, like an edgy coffee table to go with that bright couch.
Play with texture. Try a ribbed wallpaper or add a glaze over your walls to reflect the room’s natural light and create an interesting texture. Paint the ceiling a bright color, throw an area rug down, swap out boring door knobs with new, unique hardware and choose throw pillows and blankets in various fabrics to give your furniture a fun pop.
