Since Fanny is a seamstress, Bright Star is full of Regency era fashion eye candy, not to mention gorgeous scenes in the English countryside (in all seasons) and wonderful interiors. Which brings me to one of my favorite scenes in the movie, this one, in Fanny's bedroom.
We are planning to finally tear up all the nasty old carpeting in our 1960s home this summer. Because we can't afford wood flooring, the plan is to rent a sander, smooth down the floors, and paint them. While we're at it, I'm tempted to paint the walls and floors of our bedroom white and eggshell blue, like those of Fanny's bedroom. Isn't it dreamy?
