Happy Fall! I am finally back to the blog world it’s been about time and what better way to come back then with the Emmy inspired interiors?! After having so much fun in the past finding interior inspiration from the Oscar fashions, I had my alarm set to watch the red carpet for the Emmys this year ready to seek out interiors fit for television!
The ladies of the red carpet made a bold entrance wearing cobalt blue making sure that they were a primary guest by color and stardom at Sunday evenings award ceremony. If you’re feeling bold, cobalt blue is a perfect color to bring your interior to it’s fullest energy in rooms such as an entry foyer, office and family room or den. This vibrant color demands attention and holds the meaning of strength, loyalty, and friendliness. By using powerful color in the suggested locations you portray the right image of strength and success in your work space and loyalty and friendly hospitality in your welcoming entrance as well as where you spend time with your guests.
Beth Behrs, star of the CBS sitcom “Two Broke Girls” didn’t look so “broke” on the red carpet as she sported the color of money! You too can give your space that feel of money without spending all of it by using drops of green or big splashes to liven up you room. Consider painting the hallway of your staircase a bright kelly green to lead the way to stable growth or have fun with colored tiles in your shower to make those early mornings a little brighter.
Just like the song says “I want to be next to you, black and gold” Eddie Falco made her presence magnetic in a stunning black, white and gold gown by Stella McCartney. Whether you decide to stick with black and gold or bold geometrics like January Jones chose in her Zac Posen “crisscross” dress, black is a classic color and can be the star of any style that you are going for. Make your black furniture and or accessories stand out up against a metallic wall, check out Sherwin Williams metallic paints to get this effect. http://www.sherwin-williams.com/home-builders/services/paint-technology-and-application/faux-finishing/metallic-impressions/
HELLO YELLO! Jullianne Moore definitely looked like a ray of sunshine at this year’s Emmy’s wearing an all yellow Christian Diore Couture evening gown. Yellow is the perfect color to use for those interiors that don’t get much natural light and are gathering areas to encourage perky and cheerful emotions and actions. Yellow is also a good color to make a space feel cozy such as near a fireplace or in a library to make one want to cuddle up with a good book!
Goddesses of the sea seemed to be a popular look for these mermaids Sophia Vergara wearing Zuhair Murad and Heidi Klum in Alexandre Vauthier. No matter what part of the world you may live in you can bring those watery colors right into your living room with solid silks, striped pillows a fun coastal ikat print or sea-foam painted shutters for your porch.
Turn the heat up with the richness of orange tones throughout your interior and make its presence known in your room like these ladies did each in their own way! If you want to add spice to your room consider taking a tour of another culture by using native fabrics and architectural details. Remember that you can always use your favorite citrus colors even if you are afraid of using too much color. Orange, can get its point across gracefully with just a touch in accents such as frames or art and you don’t necessarily have to use the color in its most bold form, you can always add white or black to it for a less bold look.
As another award show passes I must leave you all with the best of the red carpet to inspire your own spaces; and keep living the lifestyles of the rich and famous until the next red carpet inspirations hit a room near you!
