A Single Man

It’s been over two months since Tom Ford’s A Single Man was released and I just now watched it. Because it was directed by Tom Ford, I knew it would be visually pleasing but this movie goes beyond pleasing – it is visually stunning.  I won’t give away any of the plot because I hate it when my reaction to a movie is even remotely skewed by someone else’s response, but watch the dialogue-free suspense trailer (below) for a glimpse of the Oscar-nominated movie.  I will have to mention that the attention to detail was impeccable and I still can’t get over how exquisitely tailored George’s (Colin Firth) wardrobe was. Glasses have never looked so good.

Since this is an Interior Design-focused blog, I will also have to show off how striking George’s house is.

George’s Mid-Century home is unquestionably astonishing (his vintage Mercedes – not pictured- is drool worthy).

I hear it’s in Glendale, so it appears I’ll be doing some stalking come the weekend.

Charlotte’s (Julianne Moore) Hollywood Regency home is a complete contrast to George’s.  Can I please have those lamps?

I was thrilled when I spotted the below Ikat pattern on Charlotte’s headboard. I almost blurted it out loud, but quickly realized I was in a public setting.

If you haven’t already seen it, please do. And let me know when you do so we can discuss. I’m itching to share more.
