Runway to tabletop ~ Red Carpet Reds‏

Last Sunday the Golden Globes kicked off the red carpet season.  I always look forward to critiquing the red carpet dress parades, and this year’s award nominees didn’t disappoint!  My pick for best-dressed of the evening was actress Lupita Nyong’o wearing a modern minimalist red gown by Ralph Lauren.  While some stylists discourage their clients from wearing red for fear of clashing with the carpet, I completely disagree!  I think Lupita, Emma Watson, Amy Adams, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus all looked striking.  Most crimson dresses can actually complement a red carpet, unless they are long sleeved.

An all red event can come off feeling a bit boudoir.  Try mixing ruby red with dark burgundy, similar to what Amy Adams is wearing.  The different shades will create depth and richness for your party decor.  For a recent event, we mixed these rich red ruched Chameleon Chairs with burgundy and coral hues.  Having the linens a touch lighter or a shade darker than the seating allows the chairs to shine.

After all, these chairs were made to steal the show!
