Color Combo: Grey, Black, and Lime Green

020409_stripesgreencolor.jpgEver since we recapped Penelope for an On The Set feature, we've had that...that...style on the brain. The closest thing we can come up with is "Neo Victorian Gothic" (and we totally stole that lingo from the behind-the-scenes featurette, OK?); and recently, we've ventured off to find some inspiration that exudes the same qualities as some of the sets in the film. Here's our latest find: Traditional striped wallpaper in charcoal greys and blacks is the backdrop to a show-stopping lime green tufted chaise...

The glossy black doors and trim give the room an updated gothic feel, and the traditional framing and placement of the old photographs (very Arbus-esque!) with a vintage crystal chandelier keep the formality of the space in tact. We can't get enough, so if anyone has any other resources, please please share it with us!
