Decorate Like a Femme Fatale: Ava Gardner's Flea Market Chic

Decorate Like a Femme Fatale: Ava Gardner's Flea Market Chic

Ava Gardner never felt quite at home in Hollywood, but soon found her place in Madrid, a city she once said, resembled herself.

Interior Design Inspiration: Marilyn Monroe's Monochromatic Chic

Marilyn was the classiest woman when it came to fashion, but that sense for what worked and what didn't work certainly carried over to her interior design skills. Are you wondering how you can take a cue from her sophisticated style and incorporate it into your own style?

Sadly, a quick Google search will not be of much help. Go ahead. Type in any combination of the words "Marilyn Monroe Interior Design" and you will find a somewhat hideous array of Andy Warhol knockoffs, black & red hued rooms, and fluffy pink chairs.
