Eat Pray Love!

28 Aug

Going to see “Eat Pray Love” tonight. I have a feeling this will be one of those movies added to my list of dreamy, inspired sets. I will let you know. Have a great weekend!

Steampunk

5 Jun

The look is called “Steampunk” and I am so excited to know that there is a “name” for my favorite decor style. For years I have tried to describe my style as an eclectic mix of traditional and modern, trying to spell out exactly what that meant. Now I can simply describe it as “steampunk” and I can’t believe such a fun and simple word says it all.

An interesting and out of the box combination of Victorian influence during the industrial revolution.

The look is sometimes thought of as “goth” but that doesn’t quite fit in my opinion.

Remember my post about how I have liked the “Art Nouveau” era before I even knew what “Art Nouveau” was. I mentioned how the 1990’s movie “Casper” inspired my decorative senses because of the incredible set. Well, that movie as well as “Wild,Wild West” is a great representation of “steampunk” style. Two new movies I can add to my “movie inspiration” list. Kinda weird to find inspiration in these movies, I know. Watch them again for yourself though, and you will see.

First described as “industrial”, “steampunk” is so much more involved than that. It is “industrial” with a feminine twist.

Reclaiming old “junk” and making it beautifully new for you.

One of my favorite parts of “steampunk” decor is the lighting. These lights are all available at one of my favorite lighting websites www.shadesoflight.com

“Julie and Julia” brings our blogging world to the Big Screen!

17 Aug

I just went to see “Julie and Julia” and I must say I loved it. I haven’t laughed that much in a movie in quite some time. Everyone in the theater was laughing in fact. This movie is pleasant in many ways.

“Chocolat”

I love the movie “Chocolat”. Every time I watch it, it makes me want to run to the kitchen and bake up some decadent chocolate treat. I love the setting. The chocolate shop is divine, the costumes are fantastic, and the small town with cobblestone streets is so fabulously European. For some reason this film makes me want to go to Paris. My favorite parts of the movie are the baking shots. They really did do a great job making the food and chocolate look fantastic. So if you haven’t seen the movie, go watch it, but beware that watching it to many times may make you fat. Anyway, here is my attempt at making you want to bake up good treats, like this movie will. I have found some beautiful pictures of Patisserie’s in Paris. I want to go there so badly!! (Such a “ME” place)

Doesn’t this place look divine. I love that everything, even the outside of the building is decorated so fancifully.

"The Cullen's House" in Twilight

This movie set made me want to throw out my shabby chic ways for an ultra modern pad, huge windows, and an all white interior.
