This bed stood out in a rather cluttered assortment of sets. I have seen many a brass bed frame, but something about the ivory ceramic cylinders gives this bed a special flavor. Just wanted to give it a shout out.
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.
I must have giraffes on the brain:
I have been watching this new show on Bravo called Imposters and I am hooked. It's about a woman who marries people, steals all their money, and then vanishes. I can't get enough. Recommend!
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.
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?
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.
To add to last week's post, there were two gorgeous pieces of dark work furniture use in the TV show, Versailles. Disregard the corps.
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
I watched the whole first season of Versailles.....and I didn't love it, but it was fun to see shots of Versailles in the first stages of expansion. The show is a coming of age story about a gigantic hunting palace that will grow to be the behemoth that we know and love.
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.
