The other day some friends and I watched the movie ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ (with Orlando Bloom) on DVD. I was inspired by the set design of this movie.
The movie was set in the middle ages, in medieval Jerusalem. A lot of the architecture then was of stone, the decor was of beautiful silks and woven fabrics, big brass urns, large scale furniture of stone and wood – very different to our modern day furnishings. I particularly liked the blend of heavy or sheer drapes in door ways and large scale fire burners close to them (I’m sure they would have had probs on set if a gust of wind came along).
I’m so inspired I’m going to pop up some drapes in our living room (it will also be a great insulator during these winter months) they may even give an ancient twist to our modern living space. I’ll keep you posted.
