The Marilyn Effect ~Interiors Lust

I’m not so much a winter person during the daylight hours.  It tends to be gray and cold and as I glance at the bare garden spots, I wistfully think of the dormant blooms to unfold in the spring.  Then . . . nightfall comes and the warm glow of light, a flicker from the fireplace or a nearby candle, and I welcome the chance to cocoon.  Textures and tactile experiences become even more important.  I imagine myself being surrounded by the luxury of it.

While snuggled in, one evening, the Golden Globes honored great talents and even though I had not seen the movie, “My Week with Marilyn”, the clips had me searching for trailers.

A few throw pillows, like the one in the center, are coming with the Atlanta order.  Spoken for but can be reordered!  (Image: Cynthia Smiley)

As it’s often said, “life imitates art”.  After observing a few “lean” years in design, I believe we’ll see rooms become a bit more fleshed out with a hint of Hollywood.  What do you think?
