Believe it or not, there were some benefits to being under the weather this week. Like sitting still long enough to watch an old movie from beginning to end. An old movie filled with all kinds of design eye candy- from costumes to set design.
Sex and the Single Girl, starring Natalie Wood, Tony Curtis, Henry Fonda and Lauren Bacall, was released in 1964. But even today, the beautifully designed black and white sets and the leading lady's wardrobe (black and white until the very last scene), are undeniably current.
|Awesome black and white settee. Similar throw pillows were spotted on the creme couch in Wood's apartment.|
|Reminds me of the doors we are considering installing at Holtwood House.|
|Check out that headboard in the background. Wicked good.|
|Classic lines and caning.|
Sorry I've been out of touch this week. I've been sacked by the head cold that seems to spread like the plague with each season change. I hope to be up to my old tricks in no time.
