Emmy Inspired Interiors - Inspiring Runway to Room Looks

Whether draped in blush toned chiffon or fitted in regal hued sequin, celebs wowed fans Sunday night at the 2013 Emmy Awards. Just like when I watched the Oscars, I woke up this Monday morning with EMMY INSPIRED ROOM DESIGN on the brain.  So,  it’s time for another round of gorgeous fashion meets fabulous interiors!

Kerry Washington was stunning in a romantic ethereal Marchesa gown.  With hints of gold lace and flower appliques sprinkled throughout, the soft hued gown was like a dreamy fashion fairytale come true.

Now, can you picture her flawless look as a bedroom?

This bedroom’s  sophisticated and chic color palette, delicate chandelier and ultra feminine bedding  create a stylish and refined look that perfectly translates Kerry’s Emmy look from runway to room. 

Other stars opted for rich jewel toned looks.  Both fashion and interior designer alike are welcoming and embracing Autumn by using season inspired hues. Heidi Klum stunned and sparkled in a burgundy Atelier Versace number. Doesn’t the texture, color and style of this midcentury sophisticated bedroom evoke the same feeling as Heidi’s glamorous look?  I love the rich, sultry and dramatic look the burgundy accents create when combined with the charcoal gray bedroom walls. 

So what did you think of this year’s red carpet looks?  Which one would you pick as inspiration for your living space?

Fall is finally here: Updating your Wardrobe & Decor to Welcome the New Season

The last bit of summer seems to be on its way out. The weather here in Maryland is finally starting to feel like fall, my favorite time of year. 

For me, fall means dressing in layers, sipping hot cocoa, and updating decor to reflect the changing colors of the season.  Fall is the perfect time to update your living space and wardrobe with season inspired color and texture. 

Warm and rich colors of fall (pumpkin, emerald, chocolate, etc) can easily be incorporated into both your home decor and wardrobe. For a more updated fall look, I like to combine traditional fall colors with sparkly mettallics.

Here are some of the “Statement” pieces I’m in love with this fall season.    They're bold and unique enough to stand alone, yet functional enough to compliment an existing look or accessory.  Each are great for adding a pop of seasonal color and style to your fall look.  Don’t you just love that WOODEN CLUTCH?! I mean really. If that’s not a statement piece, then I don’t know what is!  The classic lines of the striped top with the sparkly necklace already built in – Genius! I've been looking for ways to add this rich emerald green somewhere in my house and may have found it with this campaign nightstand.  And how about the gorgeous tufted settee in that rich velvet fabric?! 

 Do you love fall too? What updates are you making to your wardrobe or living space to welcome in the new season?
