Who doesn’t want to absorb some glitz and glamour from Hollywood stars? With their chic and eclectic tastes, celebrity fashion icons are often inspired by trends in art and design, and vice versa. A quick glance across the red carpet can inspire color, style and pattern themes that can translate perfectly into décor for your home. Here are five celebrity-inspired design tips for you to try:
Ruffles in Red with Emma Watson
The color red makes a great accent, but here Emma Watson shows it off from head to toe. Borrow her boldness and fill your space with the deep hue—Ruby Red Twill Curtains warm up your space and block light effectively when needed. Or bring this sensual color to your living room or bedroom with a rug.
Fresh and Floral with Dakota Johnson
The beautiful blossoms on Dakota Johnson’s dark floral dress serve as great inspiration for spring decorating. For something seasonal that can be swapped out when things get cold again, try a wall canvas like the Poppies Floral Art Print or the Spring Has Sprung Print.
Bronzed Bling with Mariah Carey
Here we have Mariah Carey sporting a bronze-streaked top with ornate braids. Carey’s outfit is all about earthy tones with a bit of a sheen—and her trademark glitz and love for metallics can translate into accessories in the home as well. Try the Sanctuary Small Bombe Nightstand with its textured bronze and gold paint job and dark accent twists. For a bit less shine, try the Sebastian Bronze Glass Lamp—a nice contrast with its shimmer and beige top.
Fun and Flowing White with Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence’s freely flowing white skirt and loose, lacy top offer inspiration for bed or couch décor. White daybeds or bedspreads can help you relax at the end of a long day. Try the dreamy lightness of the Rafael Bed Headboard. If you want a colorful accent, a la Lawrence’s graphic top, toss on a few bright throw pillows, like the Surya Geisha Pillow or the Surya “Spin” Throw pillow.
Not looking for a whole bedroom overhaul? The same look can be recreated with a daybed in any guest room or sitting space. The Manila Twin Daybed has that great pale, airy feel that you need to nail this look.
Billowing Blue with Lupita Nyong’o
At the 2014 Oscars, Lupita Nyong’o made two indelible impressions: one was her Best Supporting Actress win, and the other was the beautiful blue gown she wore. You might not ever get nominated for an Oscar, but you can take a cue from her sartorial choices in your home décor. Light up your living room with the Judy Ceramic Light Blue Lamp, and maintain that soft blue aesthetic with the Safavieh Hannah Birch Wood Vanity Chair.
These are just a few fun ways to bring some celebrity style to your interior decorating scheme. Inspiration can truly come from anywhere; all you need to do is keep an open mind and get creative. Who knows? You might just get your next home decorating idea from the red carpet.
