ordinary lives

Classic Hollywood icons caught reading, be it a book, a script or the back of food container at the grocery.

ok. This has been really bugging me lately and now I just can't hold it in. Why is the absolutely horrendous fashion of the 80's and early 90's that we were so recently making fun of back in style??

shoulder pads?


and now hammer pants?? Seriously, what is going on?

Frieda Maria

I found this wonderful jack-of-all-trades artist Frieda Maria. She pretty much does it all. Fashion, housewares, accessories, photography, fine art, installation the list goes on. I can't understand a thing on her website, but it's fun to look at nonetheless.

Hitchcock Photography

I ran across these Alfred Hitchcock inspired photos from Vanity Fair via a cup of jo. They portrayed 11 of his films using modern celebrities. I picked out the ones from the movies I've seen. They're pretty amazing.

movie interiors: love and other disasters

I was browsing through instant movies on netflix this weekend and came across this cute british romantic comedy. It stars the late Brittany Murphy and her gay roommate Matthew Rhys who live together in this adorable apartment in England.It was a fun light movie to watch on a lazy sunday. (or monday holiday)

exterior of their building

I love the contrast of dark navy and white everywhere.

(they're watching Breakfast at Tiffany's)


I'm obsessed with bookshelves right now.

it just wouldn't be a movie interior post without exposed brick. (notice the neon "bathrooms" sign. There's another sign for the bedrooms.)

there's the sign. from an old hotel no doubt. I love the weathered bench mixed with the 50's diner chairs.

brittany's bedroom (my favorite part) I want to see that photograph on the window sill up close!

I know this is a weird shot, but it's the only one I could get of this wall. I love the antler rack for hanging long necklaces from.

I absolutely must have that pink lamp!

I love the idea of having an open closet so you can see all of your beautiful clothes.

that wall sculpture above her bed is so lovely.

I love a good workspace.
