After months of frenzied anticipation, the 86th annual Academy Awards were finally held on Sunday, March 2, and Hollywood's biggest stars didn't fail to impress when it came to red-carpet glitz and glamor. As we've discussed before on this blog, the same styles that turn heads on the runway often have an equally pleasing effect when it comes to updating a home's interior. If last night's ceremonies indicated anything it's that bold solids are trending in a big way.
For instance, last year's best actress winner and last night's nominee for best supporting actress Jennifer Lawrence stunned in a sleek red sleeveless number that was form-fitting and complementary of the star's signature curves. This look brightened up the runway and the stage, and a daring red approach to window treatments could give your home an equally eye-catching edge that trumps traditional florals or patterns this spring.
If you'd rather not take the admittedly risky chance of draping vibrant red curtains over your windows this spring, best supporting actress Lupita Nyong'o demonstrated why periwinkle is bound to be a huge shade this spring both on the catwalk and in the home. Her flowing icy blue gown was a breath of fresh air compared to many of the darker looks sported by other stars in attendance, showing that an unexpected risk can definitely pay off.
It wasn't just daring shades but also innovative textures that made a real splash at this year's Oscars. Heavier fabrics like the gown worn by Lawrence and airier sheers reminiscent of Nyong'o's dress can both anchor and enliven the look of a room when used as window treatments.
