~~ Merry Christmas & 'The Holiday'
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.
