We’ve all been in a relationship where our muse turns around and stabs us in the back, right? No? Me neither. What I actually relate to in Phantom Thread is the gorgeous interiors.

One minute we’re in a chic London townhouse with high ceilings, gold chandeliers, and sofas with fringe, then we’re whisked off to the country for simple, rustic decor against delicate floral wallpaper.

ICYMI: A perfectly manicured dining room is so, so yesterday. We’ve all seen those uniform dining rooms in movies and catalogs.
