Celebrities strutted down the red carpet at last night's Emmy Awards dressed in both classic and trendy gowns. With a little creativity, the top looks seen at the show can be applied to the home sector. We can show you how to bring the glamor to your own home without having to spend the money.
White is especially hot this year. Many celebs opted for paler hues during the award show. "Orange is the New Black" star Taylor Schilling left the orange at home and stunned in an all-white Thakoon number accessorized with gold jewelry. "Scandal" beauty Kerry Washington wowed in an off-white Marchesa gown embellished with floral décor and gold trim. As you can see, white and gold go together perfectly in both fashion and home décor. Try adding a pop of color to your white walls with gold accents and drapes.
While we can take a cue from glamorous celebrities on what to do in the home sector, we can also learn what NOT to do. Sometimes finding the right print is challenging in both fashion and interior design. Lena Dunham unfortunately showed us that a teal background clashes with a rose-themed print by wearing a poufy Prada dress to the Emmys. However, "Mad Men" youngster Kiernan Shipka pulled off her patterned look. Since the Delpozo gown made use of a white background with perfectly proportional flowers, this look was a success.
When decorating your own home, it's best to keep proportions in mind. Stick with solid-color walls and furniture, adding a splash of pattern with Half Priced Drape's designer silk stripe and pattern curtains and drapes.
