Recently, I've found that I finally have a little time to start my blog - sadly, thanks to the economy - but, luckily I will have more time to devote to Martha Stewart inspired projects, reading blogs of farm dwellers in Idaho and catching up on all my celebrity beauty secrets. While I do have less "real work" I am committed to making my blog NESTPARTY | Guide to a Stylish Life an awesome distraction from reality one fantastic idea at a time.

{INSPIRATION} Golden Hollywood Glam | Jeremiah Goodman

Wednesday, August 5, 2009
I'm so falling in love with the 1940's watercolor rooms of Jeremiah Goodman. He painted the parlors and boudoirs of some of the most golden goddesses (and gods) of the silver scene, including the ever-svelte Greta Garbo.

It is silly to want to decorate a room based on a dream-like, watercolor rendering of Old Hollywood?

These are just a few of my favorites. But, there are plenty to chose from with a simple Google search.

BEAUTIFUL!!! the problem with blogging is that i always seem to have new redecorating ideas :-) all of those images are just stunning!

Lynn said...

I'm with you girl! It's hard not to want to base your whole house on a fab pic or inspiration! Stunning!

the fact that these are watercolors makes me love them even more...beautiful!!

Those are really lovely. With all the CAD and Revit in the world, I hope we don't lose watercolor renderings.

These are really great. Part of an Interior Design course I took was learning to do room renderings in watercolor. Of course none of us students produced anything as splendid as these.

Wishing you a splendid Friday & weekend,
♥ Jessica

lovely picks I would be happy to sit in any one of those room's :)


The first one is my favorite. A boudoir with red (silk damask covered?!) walls is definitely stylish enough to be worth dreaming of...
The antique cabinet to the left could be a boulle marquetry piece which would complement the extremely elegant colour scheme of the room
- black (ebonised wood),
- gold (brass inlays & ormulu) and
- red (tortoiseshell)
really well.
Also the chaise longue to the right is beyond gorgeous!
