圣星闪耀:我们都喜欢聚会,尤其是多伦多国际电影节之季,如同是北部好莱坞 ,明星聚集。

但是,随着每个TIFF季节的绽放,我们还是要照样工作:在以前的节日中,我们每年都会为新闻部门指定城市电视的红地毯,以吸引电台观众 。我们热爱每一个大明星!

这一次虽然是(多年来的第一次),由于令人沮丧的时间冲突,我们失去了与名流社交的机会。这个 Rosedale项目,占满了我们的时间,我们正在给这个项目添加车棚,户外餐厅和桑拿浴室。 Aye,严格的截止日期已经消除了我们的麦克风的可用性,没关系,总有明年。

与此同时,您可能还记得我们与Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal 与 Tom Ford  采访,或者也许我们与银幕明星Richard Gere, Matt Damon and Helen Mirren等人的交响乐。

我们也与麦当娜唠嗑。真正的感处她的风采。

为了记录,采访后,我们将我们的Cicconi苏格兰裙放在密封的盒子中,以保护那些包含着名认识的DNA。我们正在考虑eGay在稍后的阶段。。

当然,好事是可以参见今年的TIFF活动和最佳派对,而不必保持清醒,不用碰我们的麦克风。因此,我们的Paper Plane, Manhattan和Tom Collins直线飞涨。 Deelish。但也可怜我们的肝脏啊。

随着剧情伸展,现在是我们介绍Paul R. Williams,我们最喜欢的美国建筑师之一的最佳时机 。爱过昔日的电影兄弟会,捕捉内心的风格是对他而言,是种艺术。在像Beverly Hills 和 Bel Air美学家的专业卓越成为名人民间传说的东西。

注意到他与Frank Sinatra,Lucille Ball和Barbara Stanwyck的合作,Williams’的设计展示了好莱坞最佳例子。我们特别欣赏他掌握多种建筑习语的方式:“美国殖民地”,“加利福尼亚牧场”和“装饰艺术品”,只是其中一些风格,在全球各个角落的声誉。

今天,他死后将近四十年,Williams’仍被尊敬为创意人才,许多设计师从中吸取灵感。

Williams’的崇拜者包括国际装饰Kelly Wearstler。在迈阿密度过了几年之后,我们在南海滩的潮汐中,与酒店的设计师Wearstler和(当时)的所有者Brad Korzen的妻子聊天。

在酒店,如此凉爽的地幔中,是Williams’自信地提到的元素。这种戏剧性但轻松的气氛,巧妙的空间安排,自然光线的使用方式和艺术作品的展示方式,都是她的独家风格。

令她印象深刻的是,她写给Paul R Williams,Williams的孙女Karen E. Hudson创作的“好莱坞风格”经典风格的建筑与设计。Wearstler写道:“他的家园”经受了时间的考验,今天在半个多世纪前就建立起来。“赞美一个被广泛认为是现代最有创意的人才之一。

在20世纪40年代,Wearstler帮助改造Beverly Hills 酒店,并负责着名的霓虹灯,到目前为止,我们每次访问都给了我们色彩。

而这也是Williams,这次是洛杉矶国际机场设计主题大楼合作社的一部分。豪华的风格,它是一个地标,一个不寻常的扭曲配置和一个 – 我们看到它当然 – 类似于一个航天器触及蜿蜒,虫子般的腿。

沉浸在经典好莱坞风格中,我们忍不住有深深的感触。这本设计书中的每一页都讲述了另一个故事。我们喜欢Harris公寓更衣室:很容易想象一个性感的好莱坞明星,位于那条边缘的脚凳上,盯着她反思,同时应用Monroe唇膏。

对不起,我们完全沉浸在这个中世纪现代梦想的闪闪的远景中。

我们也喜欢戏剧性的灰度,在另一个形象中看到,这是一个典型Williams客厅的视觉盛宴。虽然那是很久以前,它保留了很多与今天相关的。时间可能已经过去了,但是对于他的作品依然存在,让下一代慢慢享受。

How to bust out your own L.A. vibe

  • Think big and make a grand entrance; flank your portal with huge topiary bushes and ensure your hallway is as welcoming and bright as possible.

    Max up perceived proportions by employing a predominantly bone or cream-painted palette. Hang outsized black and white photography to set the scene. Think gallery.

  • Fuss up your fenestration with tall, pinched drapery in slate grey linen or creamy velvet, inspired, all the time, by Rita Hayworth’s tumbling pleated frocks.
  • Upholstery should be long and lean with acres of French button tufting to evoke the halcyon days of cinematic majesty.
  • A-listers love chandeliers. This in mind, opt for as much heaving sparkle as your ceiling can support.
  • Flooring, in the smoky, hazy days of Hollywood, was generally layered, so install glossy mahogany or oak (chevron style, if possible) and bolster with a thick tufted rug or a Persian tapestry carpet. Dreamy, right?
  • Prepare for floral liftoff — think curtain-call bouquets for leading ladies and stuff your best vases with plump lilies, delicate orchids and aromatic white roses. Gorgeous.
  • Drinks trollies are a must. Imagine Cary Grant in That Touch of Mink fixing a stiff drink and pouring it over the rocks. Opt for shiny metal finishes and stack with cut crystal decanters and sparkling glassware.
  • Embellish your boudoir with a dramatic dressing table and let it ache under the weight of perfume bottles and horn-handled hairbrushes. And don’t forget the mirror; preferably something three-sided with Art Deco lines.

And so, as the TIFF party scene continues apace, and celebs like Jolie, Kidman and Clooney thrill fame junkies the city wide, we note that Paul R. Williams, one of our favourite Hollywood luminaries, still twinkles just as brightly, his star perpetually in the ascendant.

And, just for the record, if you’re wondering what the “R” stands for, allow us to explain. His middle name, rather aptly, was Revere. A lovely moniker and the perfect word, indeed, to describe the way in which we observe his work.  With utter and unbridled reverence.
