Last week, the 2018 Olivier Awards celebrated the best and brightest of theatreland. From production to performance, the red carpet was alive with celebrities dressed to the nines. We took the opportunity to find some theatrical inspiration to create interiors that are sure to bring the drama, from the moment the curtain opens.
Marianne Elliott was part of the team that won ‘Best Revival’ for Angels in America, as Director for her version of Tony Kushner’s masterpiece. Her floral blue ensemble nails two trends in one, with strong blues like royal and navy set to be the colours of the year and lavish florals making a comeback. Emulate this look in your home with Cosenza sofa collection in Dark Blue. Bring the floral element with our Bliss cushions in Blue.
The Girl from the North Country is based on the songs of Bob Dylan and earnt Shirley Henderson her first Olivier Award for ‘Best Actress in a Musical’. Her gorgeous dress is the perfect example of classic-meets-contemporary, showcasing sleek lines in forever trendy black. If this is the sort of style you look for in your home, consider investing in the Antibes dining collection. Charcoal high gloss is paired with simple, high back chairs. Piping and button details add extra interest.
The ‘Best Actress’ award went to Laura Donnelly (pictured with Doctor Who’s Pearl Mackie) for her role in The Ferryman, Jez Butterworth’s play inspired by the real-life disappearance of Laura’s uncle during The Troubles. Laura gets the timeless pastel trend for spring spot on with this elegant duck egg gown with gorgeous detailing. This refined style can work wonderings in creating a bright yet sophisticated bedroom. Pair Sanderson’s Alencon bed linen in Duck Egg with light coloured bedroom furniture, like the Georgie collection in White.
