So in just over a year I'm getting married; we've settled on May 5, 2012 as our date (inadvertently planning a Cinco de Mayo wedding, which I didn't realize at first until someone said something haha). So as I'm starting to plan I've been browsing various wedding magazines and websites, including Martha Stewart Weddings. I love Martha Stewart anyway, so drawing much inspiration from hers seemed appropriate. I guess there is a budding domestic diva in me after all.
Enjoy your Sunday everyone!

...was this damn room. I am obsessed with the wall, for one thing, it's almost as if the wall is decaying. As soon as we saw this in the film, the fiancé and I knew we wanted to do this whenever we decide to buy a house. How to reproduce layers and layers of wallpaper and years of distress will be another issue altogether, but I'm sure our collective artistic minds will figure it out.
This room and its décor, at the historical 33 Portland Place, was not built for the film, and (as I'm sure most people know by now) it has been used for various other projects, including the gay porn film Snookered which was released in 2008. I'm pretty sure this is what makes me love this room even more, given my love of all things gay and pornographic.
Wouldn't it have been hysterical if The King's Speech had beat out Alice in Wonderland for art direction at this year's Academy Awards?

Luckily (or perhaps unluckily), Target has a new set of messenger bags out right now, and they look startlingly similar to the PS bags. This Mossimo version comes in a variety of colors, including olive and grey, and an unfortunate cognac color that emphasizes its faux-leather quality. But I do like this off-white color a lot. It won't make me feel better about the PS1, and it might actually make me feel worse, but I could probably drop $30-some bucks on this.
