Movie Sets I Would Live In: Pillow Talk
Pillow Talk with Doris Day and Rock Hudson is a perennial favorite at my house. The sets are amazing, and they have to be, as Doris Day plays an Interior Decorator. The movie displays all of the hip trends of the day: long low built in shelves and upholstered furniture in both main character's New York apartments, lots of hanging pendant lamps for accents, oodles of geometrically shaped pillows, dark-strained teak for his apartment, and light finished birch for hers.
It's a lush technicolor dream to watch, at least until the end when the decorator gets her revenge, making a gothic nightmare of Rock Hudson's pushbutton jet set bachelor pad.
