Bonne année et bonne santé

Bonne année et bonne santé I hope you are all enjoying the New Year and have been lucky enough to eat well, relax and contemplate the coming year.

I have managed to have what my idea of a rest is and watch some inspiring movies filled with beautiful 18th century interiors.

My favorite was Bel Ami. I was so inspired by it I needed to share it with you.

BEL AMI is the story of Georges Duroy, who travels through 1890s Paris, from cockroach ridden garrets to opulent salons, using his wits and powers of seduction to rise from poverty to wealth, from a prostitute’s embrace to passionate trysts with wealthy beauties, in a world where politics and media jostle for influence, where sex is power and celebrity an obsession.

With a great cast ... Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci and Colm Meaney along with the most beautiful Parisian apartment sets I have seen to date it is well worth watching. You will of course want to redecorate.

Here are a few photos from the movie ....
