P.S. I Love You


Another great movie I recently saw was P.S. I Love You starring Hillary Swank & Gerard Butler. I absolutely adored their small yet gorgeous New York apartment. I always love to see the houses and apartments used in movies and the way they have been decorated. In this movie I particularly loved the brick walls which were painted white and then rubbed back to give an aged appearance...so gorgeous and I just loved her mismatch of furniture and accessories. She also dressed in some fabulous outfits. It is a tear jurker so do be prepared with a big box of tissues...definitely a good one to watch at home!!

Good Morning Anna,

As I was coming to work this morning, I was reading the Metro magazine which is widely distributed in New York Subways, I come across your website in the best blog section and I was surprised and happy to see it, since I check your blog almost everyday.

Congratulations and thanks for sharing your beautiful projects & inspirations with us.

Anna, this one was definitely a tear jerker! But sooooo good!

I loved her apartment, very urban-artsy!

Barb McMahon said...

I loved that movie, too! I just couldn't figure out why, at the beginning of the movie, she wanted to leave that apartment and buy a house...

Jen said...

I love this room. Great find!

Darci said...

I just saw this last week and couldn't agree more! Their apartment was adorable and I cried through the entire thing.

Mango Gal said...

I loved their apartment! They had such adorable combinations, in fact I don't even think I paid much attention to the movie but kept looking at the apartment!

Geisslein said...

Oh - now I think I have to go and watch this movie - very nice sleeping room, wow!!! and I think the same like you - I always love to see the houses and apartments used in movies and their decorating. One of my favourite movies is "somethings gotta give" - I love this wonderful house!!!

You know, I read the book and thought it was just okay. BUt I saw the movie and loved it. A rare thing to have a movie better than the book.

I tried to watch this movie but did not like it at all! I am from New York and the apartment they had was NOT small by NY standards! It was pretty huge actually. And the area where they live it's not cheap either!I just got so mad when they talked in the movie about "living in his small apartment" when I would kill to have a space like this!
grrrr

I loved the Irish countryside and the shoes at the end need to be on my feet.

I am obsessed with movie decor! I have not see this one, but will for sure now. Thanks and that brick wall is very cool.

Krissy said...

It was such a great movie! I loved their apartment too. I wasn't warned it would be such a tear jurker and cried the entire time. Good thing I rented it!

perfect bound said...

ok, confessions. did not love the movie (at all.) but I agree that ms. swank's apartment is totally well, swank. I wish there were a place where movie stills of interior shots went to live. I would be there often!

Sharon said...

Wasn't that a great movie! Such a comfy and shabby chic small apartment, and the shoooes. Basically, I drank in all the amazing inspirational style. Kuddos to all the design teams& crew behind the film. Oh and Gerry:) his cute accent and great bod. I couldn't help shedding some tears..coz of the letter scenes.

Christabelle said...
