Julianne Moore tapped to design the Oscars green room


It’s official: there’s nothing Julianne Moore can’t do. Not only is the 54-year-old a best actress Academy Award nominee for her role in Still Alice, she’s also set to design the green room for the upcoming Oscars ceremony.

Word of her designer turn came on Tuesday morning (Jan. 20) from the team at Architectural Digest. The prestigious magazine, beloved by decor devotees, often features celebrity homes, and explained choosing Julianne to consult on the room’s look and feel because she’s had extensive experience attending awards ceremonies.

Though she’s never won an Academy Award, the flame-haired beauty has been nominated several times. Julianne has also captured statues at the Emmys as well as the Golden Globes. The star says she "knows what it’s like to be backstage on Oscar night," and that she’s thrilled to decorate the space in a way that will appeal to A-listers.

This isn’t the first time the mother of two has teamed up with the publishing world’s leading arbiters of design. Back in 2012, she let the magazine’s writers into her New York City home and discussed her architectural style.

“Purple, black, grey, white and green are the only colours I can handle," she said. “I love modern architecture, but I’ve only ended up in old houses that I’ve then kind of renovated. So my fantasy is to build a house from the ground up. Modern. I’ve seen these stone structures in Finland, something a little Scandinavian-looking and modern.”

The magazine went on to say that if Julianne hadn’t become an actress, she could have been a decorator because of her in-depth knowledge of furniture, design, construction, renovation and architecture.

Given all of the above, we sure hope the camera pans to the usually private celeb-hangout on the eve of the Oscars! The award show is set to air on Sunday, Feb. 22, with Neil Patrick Harris taking on hosting duties for the first time.
