Get the Look: Modern Marie Antoinette

I’ve recently become re-obsessed with Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, with all of its sumptuous visuals and entrancing costumes and art design. If you’re anything like me, you’re aching to have your very own Versailles…or maybe just for Jason Schwartzman? Look no further: for today's Get the Look I’ve re-imagined the ole château with a modern twist.

To learn how to get the look I’m calling Modern Marie Antoinette in your maison,

The Palette: Pastel tones galore, with a hint of silky shimmer. Coppola has said that the film's production design was keyed to the colors she found in a box of macaroons. Try whimsical floral wallpapers or curtains.

The Furniture: To pay homage to Marie’s man, a Louis XVI chair is a must. The Phillipe Starck Louis Ghost Chair ($365) is the epitome of baroque seating—revisited. This ornate Open Carved Headboard ($599) creates the perfect place to get your royal shut-eye, and it comes in queen size.

The Accents: Vinyl wall decal silhouettes ($11) of the “dauphin” and his wife are very appropriate, and are an updated form of the classic artwork. Place them directly on your wall, or frame them on a candy-colored background.

The Lighting: Light up the luxe with the Duffy London Glo-Canvas CHA-03 ($475), a stretched canvas printed with your very own chandelier. A candelabra is also a necessity for wandering through the east wing of your castle at night, but it’s the 21st century, so try a Lucite one ($65).

Casa, I'm with you--I loved Coppolla's Marie Antoinette and it's over-the-top cream puffery! Accenting your home with some of these items would be nice, but it would be too much for me all at once. The Ghost candelabra and black chair are so chic!!
