don't miss movie décor: miss pettigrew's pad


There haven’t been many movies out recently that had enviable decor (can’t imagine any of you are rushing to steal ideas from There Will Be Blood or No Country For Old Men), but a film opened this past weekend that has wallpaper lovers swooning: Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day. It stars Frances McDormand as misplaced nanny who lands a job as personal secretary for a glamorous actress, played by Amy Adams — but design junkies would argue that film’s true star is the decadent 1930’s apartment created by production designer Sarah Greenwood (who also did Atonement‘s lavish mansions). With tufted slipper chairs, silk wallpaper, and mirrored side tables, it’s enough to make any girl swoon. To read more about it, check out this little piece in The New York Times.

Oh my gosh! I wanted to post about this room SO badly! We saw the movie last weekend and it was great, and I was so taken with the decor of this home! So glad you posted it. Makes my day.

Oh my goodness, I’m obcessed with movie and TV sets! I love that you have a section for it on your blog. I haven’t seen this movie yet, but now I think I’ll make sure to see it over the weekend just to see the wallpaper.
