Garden of Eden is one of my favorite books and was quite the obsession when I was in high school. When I found out it was being made into a movie I had mixed emotions, especially when its release was delayed by two years. Although it's definitely not a great film by any stretch of the imagination, the set design and styling is spot on. You can't go wrong with French chateaus and mena suvari in a peroxided twiggy/edie sedgwick hairdo. Makes me want to go short again!
I love the pale and subdued color scheme with pops of blue and yellow. The striped boat shirts they are sporting reminds me of the one I just purchased from j. crew too!
i know this has been making the rounds in the blogosphere but in cased you missed it here it is:
i totally agree with him about los angeles, i love it there
also have been waiting to check out the new movie about eameses,
may see it tonight
i'll let you know what i think
meanwhile i'll leave you with some lovely shots of the eames house
i fell in love with this movie and its set style
besides being super nostalgic as it is filmed in my old hood of silverlake and the surrounds
i also found out that the house in it is none other than the Lovell house designed by Richard Neutra
a lot of thonet-y chairs and stuff that seemed styled by Emily Henderson but wasn't
from Anna's great kimono to lovely glass decanters filled with flower stems to flags as curtains
i'm a fan
