My new dream is to commission a painting of my favorite room and hang it in close proximity to that room, creating a multiplicative happiness effect.  

If You See Something, Say Something, Again

Nosotros Los Nobles (aka The Noble Family) - CEO's office with premo geraffe. 

Nosotros Los Nobles (aka The Noble Family) - CEO's office with premo geraffe. 

I watched this Mexican family comedy film called Nosotros Los Nobles (2013), and on top of the jumbo brass giraffe, it was really great.  It's about a mega rich dad who tries to teach his three spoiled kids a lesson by pretending all of their money has been seized, and they need to go into hiding........and work.

If You See Something, Say Something

It is a family tradition to always point out giraffes, so I have to mention this painting in the movie, Wolf (1994), although I stopped watching the film soon ofter seeing this because of how completely aweful it was. 

But shout out to the Bradbury Building!  It's LA's second most beloved filming location.  Can you guess the first?

Austenland is a DELIGHT!

I watched Austenland (2013) and LOVED it from the very first frame.  The film opens on Jane Seymour holding a taxidermy lamb, giving and an impassioned speech about a Jane Austen immersive vacation package, in a room that can only be described as layered.   

And of course Jane Seymour lives in this adorable cottage.  

By the end of the movie, I could honestly say that I heart Darcy.  

As it should be.

Tale of Tales......

The above image can be seen in the trailer for Tale of Tales (2015) and it seduced me into watching (the first part of) the movie, so I'm posting it here so you can save yourself the agony.  This set combines two things I love:

1. Dark wood antique furniture in light spars spaces, like in American Horror Story: Coven

2. White walls that are so heavily etched that they resemble lace, like in The Night Manager

Ar Go to the kitchen

I remedied an embarrassing blind spot last night; I watched Argo.  It's a great movie, duh, but what caught my eye was the print of this wall paper.  It feels like you are caught in a weed patch in the best way.  It's fun and springy without leaning too far into florals.

I did a deep internet search for reasonably priced sheets that look like this wallpaper so I could go to sleep in a garden, but came up with zilch.  There were some good duvets, but not sheets.  The best I could do were some Laura Ashley sheets that weren't too 90s, but they don't really scratch the itch.
