Have you seen Showtime's latest offering of Secret Diary of a Call Girl
? When we first heard of it, we thought it was some late night porno, but turns out? It's actually like...hmm...Sex and the City
in London...if Carrie were a high-class prostitute. Originally from Britain, this show stars Billie Piper as Belle, the girl-next-door who grew up to be a call girl for the upper crust. Plot points aside, we were intrigued with Belle's London "studio" flat: a mix of girly jewel toned patterns (it's almost Delia's-esque!) with some high end pieces and vintage finds. Take look at some screen shots after the jump...
Belle's bedroom area: Love the mix of turquoise wall with the jewel-toned head and foot boards. Also, the purple curtains add a nice dramatic touch...
The entryway: Is that a blik wall decal there?
The red wall with the kimono gives this flat a more sensual vibe then, say, a beige wall with a console table and a seaside painting...Steps lead up to the bedroom area.
Interestingly enough, Belle's living and dining area where she and her friends--not clients--hang out is painted a cheery warm golden yellow; as opposed to her bedroom area which is done up with cooler shades of purples and blues.
The dining room table looks like a flea market find and the light fixture vintage, but the chairs look like Bertoia wire dining chairs.
The kitchen and bedroom are visually linked, thanks to Belle's matching purple enamel refrigerator.
