a sunny space

The other night as we were watching "Vertigo" (a very good Hitchcock, although not my favorite) I couldn't help but notice how utterly fantastic this apartment is. Are you seeing that black antler festooned with a lacy whatnot? Heaven help me. I also died a little over the lamp, the yellow director's chair, and the art hanging above the couch.

This is just the kind of room where I can easily imagine myself sketching up a storm. The sunlight, space, and punches of color would leave me feeling more than inspired.

p.s. Be sure to check out our giveaway!


  1. Oh my goodness....I love this movie and you are right...a fantastic apartment. I do believe you love the color yellow! I'm going to go enter your giveaway right away!

  2. I wish I'd had your keen eye when I was writing a paper on Vertigo a few years ago. I think Midge's apartment could have made some great points.

    Poor Midge. I guess she had great taste in decor, poor taste in men.

    You've left an unanswered question: what is your favorite Hitchcock?

  3. one of my professors told us about how he took a girl on a first date to see "vertigo" at a hitchcock retrospective, and he said that she never wanted to go out with him ever again. hahaha. i guess it IS a bit of a downer...

  4. i put you on my inspiration link list on my blog! just thought you should know :)

  5. Ahh I think I only watch this movie for the apartment! Its so adorable- I love her little kitchen too!

  6. Ah, Vertigo & Rear Window are fantastic films. I use to watch 'Rear Window' for the same reason.
