I am scouring online sites for two old Hollywood style arm chairs – something elegant yet a little quirky – that you might see in Aunt Mame’s apartment. So far I have only found one that fits the bill but at £4000, it is way over my budget.
Any inspired ideas for a Scottish girl who dreams of a glamourous 1940′s Hollywood life?
Marry a rich man? I suggest you try thrift shops and antique shops. Remember if you find only one you can always have it copied. Or if you find some in a rough shape you can have it reupholstered to give it a fresh look. Try checking out theater staging prop houses – maybe they have something leftover from a movie or a show. I’m not sure how big thrift shops are in Scotland? The other thing is to check when people have house sales or auctions. Good luck – I hope you find your glamor!
