Madeline Stuart at the Oscars

I like going to the movies and watching the Academy Awards, but I wouldn't call myself a huge film fan (although I REALLY enjoyed Silver Linings Playbook this year-- did you see it?).  Yet, when interior design and good movies unite, well, that's a combo I can't turn down.  When I heard that Architectural Digest had selected Madeline Stuart to design the 2013 Oscar 'green room', my ears perked.  What's this you say?  A 1930s-inspired room specifically for celebrities lounging in black tie attire?  It doesn't get more glamorous than that.  I can only dream that the space will be filled with art deco details and the most elegant furniture, metallic accents and super luxurious upholstery fabrics.  Oh boy, I'm excited just thinking about it.  I can't wait to see what Madeline Stuart will create.  We'll have to wait until the big awards show for that reveal (Sunday, Feb. 24th).


A rendering of Madeline Stuart's design-- with a specific nod to legendary 1930s Art Director, Cedric Gibbons.  Read more about the story here.


Until the green room is actually revealed, I thought I would post some of my favorite images from Madeline Stuart's portfolio.  I love how most of her work is grounded in traditional design, but features a flair for the dramatic (whether that's achieved through bold color, or using yards and yards of yellow silk drapery, each space has a dramatic presence that still feels livable and unique).  Enjoy!
