I saw a movie that I can’t get out of my head….well if I’m really honest I can’t get the interiors out of my head. Rarely have I seen an interior that I was so amused and intrigued by. If you haven’t seen the French movie “Coco & Igor” rent it this weekend, even if you just watch the interiors. I know..I’m BAD. When Coco brings the Russian conductor and his family out to stay at her country estate, they’re hoping to be greeted by warm country interiors. They are in shock when they approach her very graphic ONLY black and white country home…inside and out.
While Coco and Igor are falling in love, I’m falling in love with the doors! Everything in the house is severe and outlined in black. Just like a perfect Chanel jacket. White walls with black outlines, almost like a cartoon, yet terribly chic. I never thought to do an interiors like that before. But the problem is now I need a room like this.
Coco gets in to a hot and heavy affair with the married conductor. And I’m in love with the cool black and white wall patterns.
The wife is very upset! She’s sensing something is up..and her stupid guest room is only black and white!! She desperately tries to give it some color by hanging a scarf on the wall. Having no appreciation for Chanel’s outlined, defined interiors. I feel bad for her, but I’m busy checking out the cool mix of black and white patterns.
Coco lounges in the chic stair case that is so…Chanel. She designs like she dresses.
It doesn’t matter what room they’re trying to hide their affair in….the hallways, bathrooms you name it, all have a perfect black and white, perhaps tan pattern. The actors are excellent, the story interesting, but I really need to see the exact colors in this pattern.
They’re now hot and heavy. But the carpet steals the show. Where can I get one like that?
She is getting a bit tired of him now…. They’re in the bathroom, it’s white with…you guessed it, black borders and trim. She is mad. He doesn’t appreciate her as an “artist”, calls her a merchant. What a FOOL!!! Open your eyes philandering DUDE!! Only an artist would think these interiors up.
I love that door! Coco loves his piano playing. Good stay there for a while so I can check out the wall. No disrespect, but step to the right please so I can get a good look.
Someone’s style transfers to interiors.
Perhaps she is the one? The one who inspired all the black and white graphics in design…?
