Ok, so the movie Elizabethtown (2005) was pretty bad. The plot was terrible, the character development was bad, there was no romantic chemistry between the leads (although Orlando Bloom was in it…) and Kirsten Dunst’s character was overbearing and way, way too cliché. The best part was her apartment, and the journal / scrapbook / road trip guide she made for Drew (Orlando Bloom), which by the way that she unrealistically made in like 3 hours that really would have taken weeks. And I can’t find pictures anywhere! I think my apartment now is shaping up to look something like her place, dress-form and all. I will take more pictures when I’ve tidied up a little.
To get pictures of Claire’s place I had to watch the movie and pause the screen. But, I got some good ones.
This screenshot of the foyer shows a cute narrow dresser, a couple of mirrors and floral arangements. Very shabby chic.
Here’s a close up of the floor.
Here’s a shot of what I believe is the bedroom. I don’t recall seeing this furniture in any other scene. I love the keyholes though, I have a dresser with skeleton key holes, and I happen to collect skeleton keys. I haven’t checked to see if they fit though. I should.
The blue wall is bright, and “Charming.”
I’m a fan of the vintage lamp in the bedroom, and the red sheets are a great contrast.
My favorite room! The reason I wanted to paint my office/ living room (the room adjoining the Living Room) blue. That and it’s the only gallon of paint I have laying around…
I’m a huge fan of the blue! Maybe because it’s my favorite color… How can she afford this apartment on a flight attendant’s salary? Oh yeah, she lives in Kentucky…
Here’s the famous road trip journal in the making! They want you to believe she made a 2 day long soundtrack and map with stops in like 3 hours. Because she’s super human. Also, having blue pillows in the living room ties in the blue in the dining room.
Where is this taking place? I don’t know. But I like the vintage print and the lamp.
This bathroom is adorable. Subway tile. Peacock blue. Crystal knobs. Sold.

I think I may have found the closest thing in real life to this apartment… Pictures to follow of how my place is decorated and you have to tell me how it compares. What’s your favorite movie apartment? Happy viewing!
