Our Living In posts are what originally got me hooked on Design*Sponge. With that in mind, you can imagine my delight when we decided to do a little rejigger on the old column and expand it. Now, along with the traditional posts that help you bring home the decor, fashion and style of some of your favorite films, we’ll be periodically offering up ways to create gallery walls inspired by some of Hollywood’s most outstanding movies.
Our inaugural film is last year’s critically-acclaimed Brooklyn. Set in the 1950s, the movie follows young Eilis, played by Saoirse Ronan, as she anxiously leaves behind her life in Ireland to pursue a new one in Brooklyn, NY. The film may be set in the middle of the century, but worry not, we’ve put a modern spin on the film’s classic images by working within a pastel palette that’s perfectly matched for spring decorating. Imagery inspired by the Coney Island Ferris Wheel, Saoirse’s costumes and hometown, as well as New York – all of which were highly important to the film – are just a few of the elements that make our first gallery wall sing. Click through to shop the wall and bring it home for yourself. Enjoy! —Garrett
