Leave it to a former interior design student to watch a movie and fixate on the dynamics of the interiors. That’s exactly what happened when I watched (500) Days of Summer a couple of weeks ago.
The movie was great. The acting was perfect, the story was charming and real and the directing was great. But what I really loved was the interiors. The styling and set dressing, especially in the apartments of the two main characters (played by Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt) was so reflective of their characters and so different. Summer’s apartment is eclectic, feminine and colorful. Tom’s is masculine, contemporary and monochromatic. Plus, Tom’s chalkboard headboard wall is beyond amazing. I don’t know how clean your sheets would be, but I love the idea of a headboard you can draw on to suit your mood.
Here are two boards inspired by each apartment. Who’s space do you prefer? Summer’s or Tom’s?
