Inspiration from High Society

High Society is one of my favorite classic films. Every time I watch it I draw inspiration from it. I especially love the scene with Celeste Holm and Frank Sinatra. They play reporters at the "wedding of the season."

The room full of "elegant junk" is just something to swoon about if you love antiques. Above is a look book from Veranda magazine. Carisha Swanson pulled together some current d├ęcor items that would come pretty close to that elegant room that Celeste was talking about.

I love item number 4. The Tyntesfield wallpaper. Oh goodness so beautiful! If you have not seen the movie High Society then you should definitely add it to your list to watch. It is sure to inspire you. But I have included the scene with Fred and Celeste below. Enjoy!
