~ Have you made your predictions yet? ~


For the past several years the Architectural Digest Greenroom has been a highlight of this glamorous awards show. Each year I eagerly await to sneak a peek at the decor theme for this backstage chill-out lounge room for the presenters and nominees. An ultra-exclusive place where the evenings film stars can catch their breath and relax before and after they appear on stage. 


The design concept goal for the Greenroom this year was to create a West Coast vibe ~ an airy, glamorous, comfortable Hollywood Hills home with a retro-Hollywood feel. They definitely achieved their goal I think.
As you probably know, I am Bonkers for Banquettes and absolutely love this enormous creme banquette big enough to comfortably sit 16 people. Overall, the room is pretty monochromatic, creme furniture, walls and limestone floors, with pops of colour introduced in the cushions and foliage and finished off with hits of black throughout to ground the space.


Designed by the firm Commune in collaboration with the multi-talented, and amazing Julianne Moore whom, by the way, has been nominated this year for Best Actress. Good Luck to you Julianne!!


Don't you love the Caesarstone quartz bar? How about that 70's tapestry hanging on the wall behind?



On the far wall of the livingroom is a wall of 16 Samsung LED displays serving as a huge picture window with spectacular views of  Los Angeles. 


Complete with living plants, this groovy garden-like area was  designed to look like an outdoor patio.
