While Award Season – like everything else – looks a bit different this year, movies remain a source of influence for fashion, interiors, and culture. There were some standout stars in this year’s lineup of Academy Award contenders, not only for their incredible storylines, actors and cinematography, but for their style! Dwayne pulls back the curtain to share how he draws inspiration from Hollywood’s latest hits.
Set in 1960s Miami at the height of the city’s allure, One Night in Miami is the true story of four legendary figures of the civil rights movement – World Champion boxer Mohamed Ali, activist Malcolm X, Football star Jim Brown and singer Sam Cooke – coming together to discuss their unique roles in the country’s growing unrest. Taking place mostly in a motel room clad in decade-defining muddled greens and oranges, the film also has snapshots of the iconic Fontainebleau Hotel, club, and striped umbrella-lined poolside scenes that are also synonymous with the era. While the Regina King directed movie resonates for its important message, the glamorous background she depicts acts as a fifth character, reminding viewers that even in darkness there is always light.
A treasure-trove of small space hacks, Nomadland features a rough and tumble Frances McDormand soul searching across the American West in a fully outfitted home on wheels. While the interiors leave a lot to be desired, the clever storage solutions inspire us to make the most of our larger-than-a-van small spaces. The film also touches upon the precious nature of heirlooms, no matter their dollar value, it’s important to allocate a safe home for your treasures in your home. As a guiding principle in small space design, when everything is put away in neat, designated spots, even a tiny room – or in this case, a van – can look tidy and be functional.
This confection of a movie is the bright pop of color we all needed this year. Emma, set in the Regency-Era England of the early 1800s, follows the meddling titular character of Jane Austen’s iconic novel of the same name. Much like Bridgerton did for tv this year, Emma inspired us with its opulent, traditional with a twist interiors of the aristocratic homes. Clad in pastels with ruffles, puff sleeves, and bows, the fashion inspo is sheer decadence. The heavy draping, striped upholstery, and candy-coated walls make this film an Oscar-worthy sweet shop of dreamy Georgian design.
Mank takes us back to Old Hollywood, set in the 1930s world of screenwriter Herman J. Mankeiwicz as he completes what is considered to be one of the greatest movies of all time, Citizen Kane. Filmed in black and white, audiences get a glimpse of what Mankeiwicz’s viewers would have seen through his lens. From the depression-era modest family homes to the larger than life movie sets, Mank takes us on a journey back to the golden age of filmmaking. In particular, the dinner party scene has us craving the ritual of setting a full table surrounded by loved ones.
