What I really liked about it though was the visual details. Unfortunately I couldn't find all the images I wanted, but there's a couple here.
First of all there's Maggie Gyllenhall's bakery. It has a fabulous 3-dimensional cupcake sign hanging outside (no picture, alas), and an assortment of glass plates attached to the front window:
I've been wondering how they were attached. Silicone, I guess, or possibly hot glue, though in real life I don't think it could cope with temperature changes.
I also like this little crushed velvet bolero. There's a better picture here .
I loved Emma Thompson's apartment too. No really good images, though you can get a small idea from this:
It's all blank white walls and terrazzo floors, with very little furniture and just a few giant architectural fragments here and there for decoration. There's a massive stone lintel surrounding one doorframe, which is a nice touch. All in all, very cool.
