Backstage in the Green Room

I just received these behind-the-scenes images from Baker, Knapp and Tubbs who supplied many of the furnishings for Architectural Digest's Green Room. For the uninitiated, the Green Room is where nervous presenters, hopeful nominees and ecstatic winners hang out during the awards show. And while the Oscar hoopla is over, I thought they would be of interest to those of us who were not walking around with a statue in our hands a couple of Sunday nights ago.

Interior designer Michael  Smith designed the luxe looks with a nod to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Furnishings from Baker, wallcovering by Phillip Jeffries, and fabrics from Cowtan and Tout were used to create a forties library look. Smith, a native Californian,  is no stranger to high level prestigious projects, having been named by President Obama to the Committee for the Preservation of the White House.
