Oscar-Worthy Decor Inspired by This Year’s Best Picture Nominees
Awards season is in full swing, and while you may or may not have seen all the nominated films, one thing we love about some of this year’s Oscar contenders is the strong aesthetics they serve. We picked four Best Picture nominations and some pieces inspired by them to help you live out your dreams of living in a movie.
This Oscar favorite (spoiler alert!) takes place in early 18th-century Europe. The clothes in this film are amazing and Sandy Powell absolutely deserves to win Best Costume Design. However, they are not the most historically accurate. While the silhouettes are, Powell used more contemporary fabrics and color palettes. You would not see as much black and white in 1708 England as you do in the film.
Sankara Silk Throw Pillow 16×16 from Overstock
Silk was an incredibly popular fabric in the early 1700s. However, since silk is so expensive, we think throw pillows are a good way to accent your decor with the luxe fabric. We recommend black and white to fit with Powell’s design theme.
Grace Floral Linen Texture Duvet and Sham from Pottery Barn
Linen was a common fabric choice in the early 18th century due to its breathability. Florals were also a very popular pattern choice. This linen bedding set in this beautiful floral pattern is perfect to make you feel like Queen Anne on her best day.
While the film was met with mixed reviews from audiences, there is not doubt that Queen is one of the most important rock bands of the 20th century. Rami Malek’s portrayal of Freddie Mercury is so spot on it is almost unsettling, and of course the soundtrack is amazing. If this is your pick for Best Picture, then we suggest paying homage to Queen themselves.
Bohemian Rhapsody Soundwave Print from Etsy
How amazing is this soundwave print of the titular song “Bohemian Rhapsody”? This understated print shows your love for the band and this classic song in a way that fits any decor.
Queen Vinyl Record Clock from Etsy
With cutouts inspired by the Queen II album cover, this wall clock made from an actual record is the perfect addition for any music fan.
Marvel’s “Black Panther” is the first superhero movie to be nominated for Best Picture. While the movie mostly takes place in the fictional land of Wakanda, costume designer Ruth E. Carter pulled from a variety of African cultures for her designs. Though, arguably one of the coolest parts of the movie is the Black Panther suit.
Rosdorf Park Colston Loveseat from Wayfair
The T’Challa’s suit is strong and minimalist. Black with silver accents, it gives him all the power he needs to become the hero that Wakanda and the Avengers need. This velvet loveseat from Wayfair gives off serious Blank Panther vibes.
Madison Park Crawford Duvet Set from JC Penney
This black and silver duvet set looks like stars in a night sky.
“A Star is Born”
There is a simple timelessness surrounding Jackson and Ally’s home. We think it is a great starter for a star on the rise.
Mid-century Modern Leather Plant Hanger from Etsy
Jackson’s house is filled with light and leather. The house is surrounded by greenery, so why not bring some greenery inside. This leather plant hanger is the perfect addition to a star-studded home.
Chrome Floor Lamp from Home Depot
We loved Jackson’s mid-century modern floor lamp in his living room. This one from Home Depot is pretty similar. Hopefully some good lighting will help inspire you to write the next “Shallow.”
