It's not a done-to-the-nines decorator bedroom, but Miranda Brooks's understated bedroom, as featured in Bright Young Things, is one of the most magical I've ever seen. The tall mirror and large chandelier are the elegant star players; simple curtains and a bedspread with embroidered red poppies by Brigitte Singh bring warmth and charm.
Brooks says her whimsical red Chinese lantern was inspired by the film, The Red Lantern. But I've never been able to track down a movie with that title -- only Raise the Red Lantern. The latter 1991 movie is considered to be among the most visually stunning films ever made -- and the plot revolves around red lanterns and bedrooms -- so it seems logical to me that this could be the title Brooks meant. But I've always wondered. Does anyone know the 411?
