It’s (Not That) Complicated

There was a lull in movies at our local cinema, so the bf and I decided to go see It’s Complicated for a night of mindless entertainment, and I have to say I was pleasantly entertained. Besides Alec Baldwin’s comedic acting, I was even more entertained by the set design…I can’t stop daydreaming about Meryl Streep’s house and kitchen! The kitchen itself is pretty subtle and understated, but it’s very bright and light, cozy and comforting. I want it! And can someone please open up a bakery just like Meryl’s in my neighborhood?? Please and thank you.

A Single House

Although it was not nominated for best movie, Tom Ford’s A Single Man did nab one Oscar nomination for Best Actor: Colin Firth. Not sure how many of you have seen the movie, and if you have, please let me know what you think…but story and acting aside, I was in love with George Falconer’s (Firth) house. I was melting over all the wood paneled walls, brick, glass, concrete…and all those wood slats…forgetaboutit! The house I’m speaking of is of course John Lautner’s Schaffer House.

In complete contrast to Falconer’s modernist and minimalist home, I was also dying over Charlotte’s (Moore) interiors. I’m still a fan Hollywood Regency…

This was probably one of the most visually orgasmic films I’ve seen…from the vintage mercedes, Falconer’s perfectly tailored wardrobe, Charlotte’s hair, make-up and dress…style over substance? I’ll let you be the judge. I say, not bad Mr. Ford.
