{Oscars}: Peeping into the Green Room

In the midst of all the Oscar buzz, I always think of the frantic stylists searching for perfect dresses and jewelry (I may watch Rachel Zoe Project a little too much), who's going to be wearing what - but this year I want to know about a part we never get to see - what's it like to be in the green room?!

Architectural Digest announced last week that interior and furniture designer Roger Thomas will create the Architectural Digest Green Room backstage at the 82nd annual event - here's a sneak peak at his vision.

The concept for the room is "Hollywood's Golden Era" - the 1930s.  The room starts with a base of black and white (black polished floors with white splatter paint - remniscent of scenic departments on Hollywood studio lots, black and white furnishings, black trim), and has touches of various shades in between - platinum, gold and silver.  The designer creates light and movement through the room through the use of reflective materials - mirrors, metallic furniture, glass - all popular materials throughout the time period.

This room will be decked out in furniture and accessories from French company Roche Bobois (love their stuff!) and Afghan rugs by Amadi Carpets.  There is even an "outdoor portion" that will be furnished by Restoration Hardware - complete with live hedges.

This room is sure to be dripping in glamour on Oscar night (and I'm not just talking about the celebrities)!

Just before publishing this post, the room was finished! 


I particularly like the handpainted fabric on the chairs!

Happy Oscar watching!!
