We love watching our favorite films win big at the Oscars. Truly, nothing beats the look on an actor’s face when they realize they’re getting lucky with a little gold man. But sometimes, the real prize of the Academy Awards is spotting all the stunning dresses. From the red carpet to the living room, these Oscars dresses are inspiring winning design in our spaces. Emma Stone always stuns on the red carpet, but at the 2015 ceremony, this beaded beauty gave us visions of a room mixed with classic Hollywood

Still from La La Land, Lionsgate A good film has the ability to transport an audience straight into its fabricated world. From the screenplay to the cinematography, countless elements come together to make a movie great, and every year we honor all of those things at a little awards ceremony called the Oscars. But nothing makes us feel immersed in a film quite like the sets. Whether they take us on a journey through outer space or make us imagine a magical, 1920s New York, these Oscar-nominated features win our award

Laugh, cry, eat, repeat. No, we’re not talking about going through a bad breakup. We’re talking about the emotional rollercoaster that is watching the long-anticipated Academy Awards. Year after year, we put on our finest pair of sweatpants, pour ourselves a glass of bubbly, and sit back to enjoy the show. But this year, we decided to take it up a notch, or two. So we teamed up with the experts over at Sonos to create a picture-perfect screening room with sound as good as Ryan Gosling looks. Read on for our tips to

Beat your winter blues by staring longingly at these tropical homes. We promise, playing pretend paradise will make you feel at least ten degrees warmer. Waters

Somehow, getting your locks layered with color and your nails perfectly manicured just makes you feel so much more put together. So when it comes to the home, what’s the equivalent to this fresh feeling?

There’s no denying that kids do a lot of adorable things. But the plethora of art projects they bring home from school? Well, those can get a little overwhelming. Are we supposed to display them all or store them in a box somewhere? Don’t get us wrong, we’re in full support of fostering our kid’s creative energy, but not everyone’s child is a natural-born Picasso. So how do you show them you’re proud of their work while maintaining the high-style of your home? We collaborated with the experts at Framebridge

Pizza, puppies, and mid-century modern design: some things just never go out of style. And with good reason!

But where do you go in the middle of March when all the ideal destinations are crawling with inebriated college kids? While the cerulean waters of Cabo and Cancun may sound nice, they’re standard spots for Spring Break debauchery. But it’s okay, because the world contains countless sophisticated escapes where you can sip your margarita

By the time the day arrives, we’ve been worn out by our attempts at making dinner reservations, we’ve seen way too many ads for the “perfect gift,” and we never want to taste another candy heart again. But there is one thing about this hallmark holiday that we can get behind — the colors. Although soothing blues and neutral hues are great, nothing makes us swoon like a
