'Tis the season for great MOVIES! Going to the theater is a favorite activity of mine, especially during the holidays. True Grit, King's Speech (who doesn't love Mr. Darcy?), and The Fighter are all on my list... but one film that stands out for it's visual drama is Black Swan.
With it's dark theme, striking aesthetic and incredible cast, Black Swan should be an interesting few hours. Regardless of the plot (aren't ballet and thriller mutually exclusive?), I am eager to check it out.
Cinema can be very exciting for a designer to translate into a room. Who hasn't been inspired by classics such as Breakfast at Tiffany's and Pillow Talk? If any of you recall Joan Crawford's bathtub in The Women, you are right there with me! Today
we'll let Black Swan inspire a dinner party...
Famous designer-to-the-stars Tony Duquette made the phrase "more is more" any designer's excuse to go wild. I may not run with it on every project, but when it comes to decorating for Christmas, I'm with Tony.
More is More.
Case in point, this beautiful jewel-toned Christmas tree featured in Traditional Home's holiday edition. Typical red and green ornaments are spiced-up with pops of deep aubergine (a color I can't get enough of this year) and sparkling metallics. Keep piling on the ornaments, tinsel, and ribbon, and trust me... you will transform your tree into something FABULOUS!
