Movie Sets I'd Like to Live In: Grey Gardens
When I mention Grey Gardens, invariably images of two women living in squalor in a cat-ridden decaying summer place in the Hamptons immediately pop into your mind, but in the HBO version conjures up a Grey Gardens summer place in its heyday of the 1930's. If the sets are a little fussy and traditional 1930's for your taste, they are at least inspiring in the types of furnishings: adore those bamboo dining chairs, and love love love all the yellow hand-painted wallpaper. You might not have noticed it, but that's a fantastic metal side table in the parlor, and there are some great Scandinavian overtones in the entry foyer. Have fun looking, interior design fans!
