15 Red Spaces Inspired by Red-Hot Grammys' Fashion
Red: A color so classic that carpet, gowns and rooms can all wear it.
If you watched the 59th Grammy Awards last night, you may have noticed the color red making a statement — and not just under the stars' feet. Several celebs rocked standout red ensembles. Even host James Corden donned a black tux with red lapels during the show. Maybe it was a nod to Valentine's Day, or maybe it was just carpet-inspired. Either way, I was totally digging it. Take a look, and see what I mean.

Surrounded by all this red, I couldn’t help but round up a few interiors that also rock the fiery hue. If you can’t dress yourself like Beyoncé, you might as well dress your home like her, right? Right.
Brown and Red Modern Kitchen With Black Pendants
With jazzy modern flair, red and black accents wake up the style of this small kitchen. Set off crisply by the brown cabinets, the pendant lights are almost sculptural.
Light and Bright Contemporary Bedroom With Hanging Rattan Chair
Bright, Updated Entryway
The designers left the staircase and fieldstone planter in their original condition, but added a painted wood screen to separate the stairs from the lower-level family room and bedroom, the latter of which is now used as an office. Pushing out the entry door gave the foyer a bit more breathing room, and new porcelain tile flooring updated the look.

A Gilded Table
To translate the "Golden Age of Hollywood" theme into a beautiful table design, start with a clean white-on-white canvas and incorporate bright pops of gold. A DIY table runner made entirely out of metallic gold confetti creates a glamorous focal point, while beautiful white blooms add a stunning finishing touch.
Take a Seat
Each place setting consists of a white dinner and salad plate, white napkin and bright gold flatware. Hand-write guests' names on white card stock, then slide into a festive place card. These were made by simply covering a florist frog pin with gold spray paint, then sprinkling with a heavy coat of glitter.
Once guests have taken their seat, delight taste buds with a seated first course. This salad includes mixed greens, sliced blood oranges, salted almonds and sweet dates. Delicious and simple to assemble, it can be prepared in advance and will make a lasting first impression on hungry guests.
Take Your Pick
Once the first course has been served, invite guests to help themselves to a buffet stocked with delicious hors d'oeuvres. Small bites like deviled quail eggs, duck a l'orange and lobster lollipops are a modern take on classic hors d'oeuvres, and are substantial enough to serve as guests' dinner.
How Sweet It Is
When the main course is drawing to an end, set up a gilded and glamorous dessert buffet. Guests will be delighted to indulge in cupcakes shimmering with gold luster dust, panna cotta with shooting star shortbread and, most whimsical of all, Oscar-shaped sugar cookies atop a chocolate fudge brownie stand.
Get Out the Games
Print out these bingo cards, and hand one out to each guest when the awards ceremony begins, along with a sheet of metallic stickers. Compete to clear off a row of squares with each memorable moment in the award show, and reward the first guest to score bingo with a bottle of champagne or pair of movie tickets.

Set against a modern white palette, layers of metallic glitter, tinsel and confetti convey festivity and are sure to make each guest feel like a winner.
