It’s Double Take Tuesday, which means our dear Kylie from Bandelle is here to share with you yet another fabulous film [from a decor standpoint, that is!]. Thanks for your hard work, Kylie— take it away!
Soon we’ll feature some of your terrific movie suggestions for Double Take, but we just had to finish exploring Monster-In-Law. Viola’s (Jane Fonda) quintessential Southern California mansion is almost as grand as her character. Let’s see how they furnished this Mediterranean-inspired estate…
Unlike the vibrant orange accents of Charlie & Kevin’s house, Missy Stewart (production designer) purposely kept Viola’s palette fairly neutral with some cooler undertones. Most of the seating in the living room is upholstered in creams and whites, including the sofa, chaise, and ottoman. The profile of the earl collection is reminiscent of some of the pieces but with a tufted touch. Rest your feet on the petrie ottoman before heading over to dine on the louis upholstered armchair, similar to a classic Louis fauteuil. And what better way to divide the room than to use the four ladies soapstone room divider from Modabode.
Since I associate soft creams and whites with Martha Stewart, her Valspar paint collection may provide just the right hue for the walls. Perhaps the zen garden sand would be a good match.
Fancy a cup of tea on the patio? I could spend many hours reading a book on the santenay lounge chair while sipping irish breakfast in my juliet tea cup from Wedgewood. Add a soft spring touch with a couple of small asian floral toss pillows. Finally, accent the space with a bamboo outdoor floor lamp and a hand carved ebony buddha statue.
Keep those terrific Double Take suggestions coming. We’ll try to feature as many as we can, including the upcoming Sex And The City movie.
