Malachite

That Awkward Casting

I finally got around to watching That Awkward Moment, and it was horrendous.  The film's largest issue, is that everyone is cast a decade younger than they should be.  Zack Efron, and the rest of this ensemble, look like they could pass for high schoolers in a teen soap, but we are meant to believe they are extremely successful adults (Advertising Executives, Doctor, etc).  They live in a city, which I assume is New York, have gigantic apartments, drink expensive cocktails, and talk about their friend's divorce.  

oh, come on!

oh, come on!

In the above picture, a womanizing-man-child goes over a nice girl's apartment, but her apartment looks like this!  It is freaking huge (for anywhere, but especially for NYC).  It's overly "adult".  I loved it not only for how ludicrous it is, but because if had an expensive apartment in New York, and then a sitcom created a sound stage version of it for CBS, it would look just like this.  The faux malachite lamps are what sealed the deal.

Malachite: Just putting it in writing

I am not the first person to say MALACHITE IS AMAZING, and I won't be the last.......because it's amazing.   

Malachite is a green mineral, often banded in appearance.  This patter has been reproduced in fabric, wallpaper, DYI hand painting, vinyl, and anything else you can think off.  The bold color is unmistakably decadent  and the application of this pattern produces out of this world results.

I think this room is a little all-over-the-place, but I felt like I needed to include it because of the ceiling.  Not only is it hand painted malachite, but I am all about patterned ceilings in general.
