Tuesday: Design {Boudoir & Closet}


I find that when I dream about my boudoir I, romanticism takes over my brain. It's as if I'm Madame Bovary and I desire violet cotton handkerchiefs, soft pink silks that look like ballet slippers, breezy lace curtains, wooden hand-painted fans, bolts of red toille, glamorous glass bottles of flowery perfumes, grandiose mirrors with gold leaf frames, and delicate gloves with buttons on the side. What is it about romantic items like these that make a gal's heart flutter? Is it the care we imagine we will take to dress ourselves in a boudoir? It is that we imagine we will emerge flawless and more elegant? Will picking out clothing be easier? Or will we continue, in the rush of the morning, find our clothes on the closet floor or hastily slug on wooden hangers? Will our shoes be gleaming on the organized shelves? Or scattered across the carpet with dirt stuck to the stiletto heels?

  7. I have a pair of vintage lamps, very similar to those, but with slightly different pink ruffled shades.

    They were originally my mom's, when she was growing up. Then, when Grandma sold the old house, I got the lamps, and my dad re-wired them to bring them up to code.

    Now, they're on my dresser, in my old room at my parents' house.

    If I had room in my apartment for a proper boudoir, those lamps would definitely grace it!

Five Ways to Add Old Hollywood Glamour To Your Home:
1. Mix metals - Whoever said metals shouldn't be mixed hasn't glimpsed at the magic that happens when a room is filled with gold and silver details accompanied by mirrors and crystal. The result is a beautifully opulent room!

2. A fur (or faux fur) throw - Tossed about on a chair or couch, this room accessory makes any snuggling instantly more glamorous.  (This luxury can also be in the form of a pillow or rug.)

3.  Color Pallette - The go-to-never-fail feminine color pallette tends to be camel, ivory, and soft pink. I'm a fan of also adding small bits of blue here and there (it adds depth.)

4. Art deco lines + Plush furniture - Balance out more comfy couches and chairs with sleek, art deco pieces like tables, bar carts, coffee tables, mirrors, etc.

5. Have a bar set with alcohol, crystal glasses, and an ice bucket - What ALWAYS happens in every hold Hollywood movie? A cock…

Hollywood Inspiration: "Les Girls"

Sometimes a gal has to dream, especially a showgirl! As annoying as I find sick days to be, I love turning them into homework days - or rather days I spend watching Hollywood films I've never seen before. I love using these to find new songs and new inspiration!



Today I watched "Les Girls," a completely silly movie of course, but inspirational none-the-less! Sick days are made even better when I find movies that contain little burlesque moments. I highly suggest watching this movie, or this scene at the very least.



What are your favorite hollywood films? Hope you are all well! xo, Jolie
