Movie Set Decor – Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

I can sometimes love a movie just for its decor though with Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day I confess I fell in love everything!

Maybe it’s because I’ve been spending a lot of time with my BFF, Jessica, who is one of the most glamourous yet down to earth girls I know, but my style (both home and clothing) has been changing. And after seeing this movie, all I want is more hats, under pinnings, dresses and chandeliers!

Amy Adams fashion in the movie is amazing though I have to say the item I fell most in-love with was the pink bow she used in the bathtub scene in her hair. Although I do want to get more silk gowns and robes like the ones in the movie and in this Frou Four Fashionista blog post. Just for washing dishes, you know.

There seems to be a pattern of my favourite sets involving wall paper. This was the case in Antonement and now in the bedroom scenes in this movie. Did you see the doors were even wall papered? I’ve got to find a reason to buy some wall paper.

And as much as I loved the set, I loved the sound track. Just a good bit of inspiration all around for someone who’s trying to get a little more polished and have a lot of fun in the process.

    I was excited when I went to see this movie. Unfortunately (having known nothing about the plot, beforehand), I was disappointed in the morality central to the movie. I love a period film. The set, itself, was luscious, but it couldn’t overhaul the rest of it for me.

    The interesting thing about this movie was that it was adapted from a book written in 1938 by a woman who was a soft of feminist. She wrote about things that were going on at the time that people didn’t really talk about. It was slightly scandalous when the book came out.

    I can understand why but then I think at that time period (and all times leading up to it), women had very limited ways of supporting themselves or getting ahead. So maybe having three boyfriends and maneuvering for a career seems bad/awful/degrading/scandalous/etc. it’s been one of the ways, throughout history, that women have chosen to get where they needed to go when traditions dictated otherwise.
