18 Oscar-Worthy Spaces That Evoke Hollywood Glamor
The 88th Academy Awards are fast approaching and while A-listers like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Winslet are picking out their red carpet gowns, we’re contemplating adding glitz and glamor to our interiors in honor of the Oscars. To get into the award show spirit, we’ve rounded up stunning spaces with gold décor from our archives, which are worthy of taking home Hollywood’s top trophy.
H&H‘s own Lynda Reeves brought light and energy into this all-white bathroom with floor-to-ceiling mustard-colored drapes and a luxurious chandelier. The result is a space that feels worthy of Hollywood royalty.
This airy living room by designer Katherine Newman feels tailored to the stars with its bold furnishings, exuberant colors and metallic finishes. Celebrity pals like Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon could certainly make themselves at home here.
The lush, leafy wallpaper and jewel-like mirrors evoke modern glamor in this bathroom by Toronto designer Sabrina Albanese. We can just picture Jennifer Lawrence and her squad jumping for Joy in front of these mirrors.
Designer Steven Gambrel sprinkled touches of gold throughout this living room on the wall sconces, lamps and picture light. The tufted mustard sofa feels like the perfect spot for Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara and the rest of the cast of Carol to kick up their heels.
These gleaming tiles by Ann Sacks might be over-the-top enough to steal the Spotlight off an Oscar itself. They’d make a great step and repeat wall for the movie’s stars like Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams to pose in front of.
“My love of ’50s Hollywood antiques was a natural fit with the Palm Beach stores Christine and Michelle frequent,” says homeowner Sandy Skotnicki. Designers Christine Ralphs and Michelle Lloyd Bermann picked out a statement-making console from Patina Antiques, which A-listers like Brie Larson and Alicia Vikander could check their reflections in.
One of TV’s favorite designers and personalities, Tommy Smythe, refashioned Holt Renfrew’s Lisa Tant’s condo with a chic black, white and gold color scheme. Vintage French knobs on the island and an ornate mirror up the drama.
The delicate pattern on the cream and white wallpaper in this front entryway by H&H design editor Joel Bray feels like it belongs on a haute couture dress straight off the runway. We could certainly picture Kate Winslet wearing such a gown on the Oscars red carpet!
A hand-painted cherry blossom mural (done in silver and gold leafing) makes a memorable impression in this luxurious bathroom by designer Theresa Casey. After a night in heels, actors like Charlotte Rampling (who is nominated for Best Actress for her performance in the film 45 Years) would certainly appreciate a relaxing soak in the tub.
This living room off the home’s formal dining room has a spattering of gold accessories, like a vintage lantern, floor lamps and tabletop accessories, for a dose of Hollywood glamor.
Even macho celebrities like Sylvester Stallone and Tom Hardy can appreciate having a nice area to lounge in while their leading ladies are getting ready. This library by Toronto designer Tommy Smythe would fit the bill with its gilded details and striking walls in Jet Black (2120-10) by Benjamin Moore.
If ever there were a space that evoked Hollywood glamor, this living room by designer Katherine Newman would be it. A gold-leaf feature wall and artwork featuring Marilyn Monroe evoke the glitz of 1940s Hollywood.
This bedroom by design firm Shon Parker Design feels like it’s from one of the luxe hotels celebrities like Christian Bale might stay in.
This principal bathroom by designer Amy D. Morris feels like something from a fairy tale with its ornate gold mirror, crystal chandelier and architectural details. A room this lovely looks like it belongs in the home of an A-lister.
This dining table with a decorative ram’s head base has got to be one of the most unique we’ve ever encountered. Paired with Z chairs from Stripe Vintage Modern, it’s the perfect spot for cast members to converse after a big win.
Upholstered seating and glitzy accents in this living room might be enough to entice stars like Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet from the Oscar-nominated film Steve Jobs to linger for a chat.
In this principal suite, an airy white-on-white palette is broken up by darker artwork by Ramón Serrano that has a delicate, thin gold frame. A beauty station underneath the artwork feels like it could get celebrities camera-ready in no time.
Popular New York design firm Carrier and Company chose graphic gold wallpaper for this glitzy powder room. We think the fun pattern feels like it belongs in a young starlet’s home, like Saoirse Ronan from the film Brooklyn.
