Mood Board ~ Breakfast at Tiffany's

The other day our cable TV went out, which was a great opportunity to watch a movie. I decided to watch an old favorite, Breakfast at Tiffany's. Like most people, I love to watch it in part for the fashion, but also find myself drawn to Holly Golightly's quirky but glam home every time.

I was inspired to create a version of her living room:


Here is my interpretation of her room:


Her bathtub sofa is now a much more realistic tufted settee. Behind it is a fretwork screen reminiscent of one of the major design features of her room - that fretwork column by her kitchen. The pillows speak to her pink and purple color scheme. We still have a fun zebra rug to add that glam factor, as well as a gold chandelier that pulls from the gold fixtures on her "bathtub." A couple of vintage suitcases could work as a coffee table, or as Holly did, to store the phone... 

What do you think? Anything else you would add to the board?

Great mood board! I haven't actually watched this movie in its entirety. Must watch it next time I get the chance!

Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of my favorite movies. I love the effortless glam of Holly Golightly - hello, her mailbox has a mirror in it for lipstick application as she runs out the door. Your mood board is spot on. I love how you put your own spin on many of the elements of Holly's living room. I want the white settee!
