2014 Oscars Green Room 86th Academy Awards Show Interior Decor

The Oscars Green Room: A Sneak Peek & Winners of the Past

The Green Room at The Oscars is the space just off the stage where presenters, performers & nominees relax after doing red carpet interviews. There are no cameras or press allowed in the space during the show, which offers the stars a place to unwind and really be their true selves.

Each year, Architectural Digest commissions the design of the room, and this time around, they recruited beloved designer & architect David Rockwell to work magic with his narrative approach to decorating. David used a different concept than past Academy Award Green Rooms by keeping the space open. His ultimate goal was to create a sense of comfort & community.

“Traditionally the green room has been a very complete design. Ours is a little more open-ended in that people will be able to personalize it.” The space unfolds in four areas–the entry, the living room, the bar, then the surprise garden in back. Here, we see the blue print of the concept:

One of the key points of the room that David showed excitement about is what he calls the media wall. No, that wall you saw in the Green Room is not windows–it’s screens that will display stills and video of celebs arriving before the show, the nominees for each category and the winners as they receive their awards.
