First, let's take a look at the cute little Rose Cottage.
They actually built this cottage for the movie. It's amazing that they could make it look so old! How can I do that to my house? With a budget of around $45?
Here's Iris's Bedroom:
Not the dog, silly, (though he's cute, too) but the ottoman!
But my favorite shot of the cottage is this:
I love all the layers on the side table. And the contemporary B&W photos on the mantle. Which you could view better if Cameron would move her head! Hrmph.
His house is so lived in, I love it. Totally true to life, though very well decorated.
I am such a sucker for built-ins. I really need some of my own, so I'll stop coveting ones I see on TV. These are a great color, too. Like a dark gray, not quite black.
Now onto Amanda's digs in LA:
You never really get a good look at her entry chandelier, which always bums me out.
Look how much seating there is! It makes my living room look absolutely pitiful, like I'm very, very lonely. I love the idea of a chaise in the room. My family room is actually a very similar layout. This shot gives me great ideas for furniture placement. I also love the matching sideboards.
I love the dark upholstery mixed with the white.
Here's a chair in my master bedroom. I feel this purchase was highly influenced by The Holiday. What'd'ya think?
Here's my entryway. Look at that sisal rug! Just like the entryway in the movie. (Though about 1/10 the size.) Ignore the Christmas tree. See, I told you I had this post idea for a while. And while we're at it, what about that slipcovered wing chair? Look familiar?
And here's my mantle, an homage to Iris.
So, as you can see, not only do I love watching this, I want to move in. And I'm doing my best to make it so. I actually have a lot of other pictures on how I was inspired in their Christmas decorations, but I'll leave that for another post closer to Christmas time.
