Best Movie Scene Related to Decorating?
A very clever design blog uses the classic film, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, as a central motif. Lines from the 1948 movie have been quoted by Steven Gambrel too. In the picture, the heroine's walls need to be the perfect shade of apple-green, "somewhere between a healthy Winesap and an unripened Jonathan." So Mr. Blandings probably receives the most kudos for witty design references.
But what other cinematic moments come to mind? (Not the most outstanding interiors -- that's another subject.) I'm partial to the scene in Along Came Polly when the over abundant decorative pillows are banished. Also there's Private Benjamin and her mushroom ottoman piping. Which films get your vote?
Above top, Steven Gambrel keeps his pillows under control as seen in Elle Decor's September 2001 feature, "Yankee Hip."
