Inspiration can be Stranger Than Fiction...

In a recent blog, I talked about how inspiration can be found anywhere. One of my all time favorite movies is Stranger Than Fiction. I love everything about this movie, I could go on and on, but I wont. I will mention, though, my Design Inspiration from this brilliant film.
Dustin Hoffman played the character, Professor Jules Hilbert, trying to help Harold Crick solve the voice in his head and avoid his eminent death. My inspiration from this movie comes from Professor Hilbert's office and his suits. His toned down, tailored suits of robins egg blue mixed with subtle and neutral tones of tans, oatmeal and beige are consistent throughout the movie. Within the four walls of the professor's office contains beautiful gold windows, books to the ceiling and clean lined contemporary furniture in shades of grays that set the stage for each scene. Not to mention his coveted coffee maker that is a for sure accessory in my own office as well.
This is the inspiration for the master bedroom in my own home. If you have not had the opportunity to see this great production, I encourage you to rent it! I will be sure to show you the final product of my inspiration.


  1. hey, I loved that movie too! And that coffee maker... I'm actually in the middle of a google search trying to find out what brand it is, when I found your blog. Could you tell me the brand and model, by any chance?

  2. Sorry to say, I do not know the brand and model of the coffee maker in the movie. If you do find out, please let me know. Thankslll
