living in: beetlejuice

October 28, 2010 by · 10 Comments 

Beetlejuice is now my ultimate fun Halloween flick. I honestly hadn’t seen it in 15 years and had only a vague recollection of stripes and the Day-O banana boat song. Silly me — I’ve been missing out all this time. This goofy mix of New England farmhouse meets Tim Burton kitschy kook is pitch-perfect for [...]

living in: rear window

October 20, 2010 by · 10 Comments 

I had a friend in the sixth grade whose father rented Rear Window when we asked him to get a scary movie for our sleepover. Let me tell you, it wasn’t what we had in mind and I think we ditched it half way through to play “light as a feather, stiff as a board.”  [...]

living in: la vie en rose

October 13, 2010 by · 10 Comments 

Edith Piaf is my go-to mood changer. With just a few songs, she can turn any moment into a melancholy Parisian vacation. Does it go without saying that we all could use more Parisian vacations, even of the melancholy variety? The 2007 biopic La Vie En Rose is just that, albeit a dirty, sad and [...]

The kind of hospitality and elite luxury one is treated to top-notch hotels makes me yearn to pamper myself not just during leisure or business trips, but all around the year. Looks like some top-of-the-heap hotels in Lon Angeles to Boston and Washington seem to have answered my unspoken wishes. These hotels are actually making [...]

living in: party girl

October 6, 2010 by · 10 Comments 

Party Girl is a new-to-me favorite recently suggested by a commenter. 1995? Parker Posey? New York? Sounds like a classic in the making. Tired of scraping by as an unemployed party promoter, Mary (Posey) tries halfheartedly to make rent on her Chinatown loft by taking a job as a library clerk. The ultimate ’90s wild [...]

The new generation of yachts are taking their design cues from island living. And, so the yacht manufacturers are incorporating innovative ways to diminish the boundaries between the yacht and the sea with fold-out cockpit and side platforms for easy access to the sea.

The House that Parks a Lamborghini in the Living

Today we are featuring this exquisitely modern two-story residence located in the Shokrane area of Tokyo. From the dramatically high ceilings hang beautiful abstract sculptures and bed-sized chandeliers. Also furnished with modern classic chairs and steel-framed glass floors are floating rooms throughout the museum-like home, all designed by Takuya Tsuchida. We suppose it has the [...]

living in: love story

September 29, 2010 by · 10 Comments 

Love Story is my favorite movie. My #1 (without a doubt) and my go-to answer when asked. I’ve nervously saved it for this column until I could summon the courage to take on my Holy Grail of movies. Don’t get me wrong, Citizen Kane it’s not. It can be silly and melodramatic, but also deliciously [...]

living in: i am love

September 22, 2010 by · 10 Comments 

If my past Living In subjects are any indication, I’m a sucker for old-time favorites. I rarely drag myself out to the theater but this summer I made an exception for I Am Love, a spellbinding epic Italian melodrama that completely captivated me. The fact that I saw this movie on the hottest day of [...]
