Get the Look: An Audrey-Inspired Studio

Audrey Hepburn's glamorous look in Breakfast at Tiffany's was influential, to say the least. But back when I lived in a studio apartment, I found her home style — and her ability to throw a cocktail party in a one-room apartment — more inspiring. So for today's Get the Look, I decided to design a studio apartment influenced by those Breakfast at Tiffany's digs.

I've always coveted Holly Golightly's bathtub couch, so I flipped out when I found this wonderful replica yesterday on Notcot. With the couch as the centerpiece, I pulled together bedroom furniture, kitchen goodies, and other accents that are inspired by the movie set or by Hepburn herself. For everything you need to get the look,

The Palette: I simply couldn't pass up the opportunity to use some Tiffany-esque blue, and this Valspar Ultra Premium Paint in Rapids (at left) is pretty darn close. Why not cover the walls with it, then use black and white for the rest of the room?

The Furniture: Obviously, you'll need a couch made out of a bathtub, and I also threw in some other items evocative of Golightly's pad, including a retro fridge and an elegant wrought-iron bed. For chairs and other furniture, go with ornate, old-school wooden styles.

The Accents: When in doubt, go glam, with glitzy lamps, and chandeliers dripping with costume jewels. It would also be fun to add some Tiffany-blue kitchen ware and pillows and other accessories emblazoned with Audrey's image.

Can I just add that a B@T room isn't complete without a set of vintage suitcases stacked up in the corner and an old-fashioned telephone? :)

I love the sofa, too. And the colors. I think I might make my next place black, white, and Tiffany blue with hints of red.
