Film Love - Boardwalk Empire

In my search for all things art deco, I had been wanting to see Boardwalk Empire but wasn't able to find it on Graboid Video. Luckily for me it was on Foxtel last night, so we watched the first two episodes!

Now while I am not that into gangster stories, the costumes and sets were what I was watching! While the characters went about their business, I was busy scanning the backgrounds for decorating ideas!

I am tempted to buy one of these candlestick phones to use around the house:

And I was eyeing off all the lamps and chairs:

dining chairs and teasets:

desks and clocks:

paintings, sidetables  and doorways:

headboards and curtains:

And I was making mental notes of the costumes, hairstyles and shoes too:

I am hooked!

Have you had a chance to see Boardwalk Empire?
It sweeps you up into another world!



  1. This looks like a really interesting series! I will have to see if I can get it.

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting. The eye is much better. Thank you! Have a beautiful and blessed Easter!

  3. Hi, I just found your blog because it came up in my stats so I clicked on over here and realised that you have my blog along your side bar! Thanks so much for that, I really appreciate it :)

    This movie looks amazing and I can't wait to see it! The costumes are to die for, for sure.

    I also noticed that you're currently reading Her Fearful Symmetry. Some people don't like it but I can honestly say that it is one of the best books I've read - Audrey Nifenegger amazes me. I'd love to know your thoughts on it once you've finished reading it.

    Well, I've clicked the 'follow' button and I can't wait to read the rest of your posts :)
