The red carpet at the Academy Awards is always ground zero for some big fashion trends and these days fashion and home decor go hand in hand. Colors and styles that we see on the red carpet (or runway) are soon translated into furniture and decor and eventually end up in the homes of regular people. After taking in the best dresses of today’s stars, we created a list of some trendy colors and finishes that will help you to get the look of pure Hollywood glamour.  Our picks:
