For anyone who has seen and loved Grey Gardens
, the documentary following Jackie O's eccentric relatives Big and Little Edie, the upcoming HBO dramatic retelling will be quite an event. And while most people focus on Little Edie's fashion sense as the major point of aesthetic interest, we're looking forward to the set design too...
Sure, many would say that the squalor the two Edies lived in offers little by way of inspiration for a happy home, but the lavish touches throughout the house that whisper of the family's one-time opulence always intrigued us. We could imagine Hollywood creating an Anthropologie-laden set with some cobwebs added for good measure, or (hopefully) a true-to-life mix of family heirlooms, handmade items, and yes, some funk. Judging by the few photos we've seen so far, we're happy to say that it appears they went with the latter style. Grey Gardens
airs this Saturday on HBO
