To actually watch this movie I procrastinated. I really didn't think that I would enjoy it however, I was wrong. I enjoyed the movie for 2 reasons. 1. I loved Kate Winslet's character Iris and Eli Wallach's character Arthur. So fun and touching. 2. I loved the movie set.
The interiors were so well thought out. Iris' cottage is sweet, homey and welcoming. Amanda's place was, well it was nice, yet not homey or welcoming. Don't get me wrong I loved the sleek, spacious interior but it lacked warmth.
Iris' cottage - so warm and welcoming. So tiny but you felt you could throw a party for 20 people and everyone would be comfortable.
Cote de Texas' blog featured these and a whole host of other interior shots from this movie a while ago. I had lifted them from her wonderful blog and saved them to my computer. So when thinking about a holiday post. The Holiday seemed the perfect choice.

The leather chair is fabulous and I would do harm to have it however the glass cabinet behind it is so so so fabulous!! Rustic. Look at the bubbled glass and the paint pealing. It's striking but not ornate.

Look at this kitchen! Talk about functional. It has it all. I enjoy the unmatched look too!
Close up of the kitchen cabinet. Basic and functional. And don't get me started on brick wall. I am so envious of that particular color of aged brick.
The main view as presented in Western Interiors magazine. I love the weathered/used look. You aren't afraid to make yourself at home.

Love the color and pattern, fresh and a bit romantic.
Not really sure what struck me on this fabric. I typically don't care for something like this and perhaps I like the use of it on the chair.
People! Look at that gorgeous window treatment! Roman shade in a luxurious fabric. Simple but very elegant!
