Louis Vuitton Fall Window

This display at Louis Vuitton caught my eye last fall as I was rushing past {rushing is how I make trips to the mall since I don't really enjoy being there}.  The colors of the gold spools against the dark background gave the display a very rich feeling.  

I wish the picture did this justice, some day I will learn how to outsmart my camera.  A better picture is here.

Happy New Year!

Obviously my New Year's resolutions didn't include blogging more but I'm trying. Perhaps for the Chinese New Year I can work on that again. Lately I have been incredibly busy {I'm not complaining but it does make blogging difficult} but I have somehow found time to get sucked into Korean dramas and I can't stop watching them.

I think I signed up to watch one on Hulu when they had it as a new addition and I figured, "why not?".  After a few months of it being stuck in my queue, I finally watched one episode and was totally sucked in.  The first one I saw was Cinderella's Sister and, set in a mostly traditional house in the country {they never say where but they do go into Seoul a few times}, it was filled with all sorts of design inspiration.

I love this wall and kept staring at it {hard when I had to read the subtitles - though I now can understand a tiny bit of Korean} thinking about it until I realized it is a sort of deconstructed pattern that is seen all around in similar forms.

I had even purchased a somewhat similar fabric for myself.

One by F. Schumacher.

And Ralph Lauren Home

I love this floral pattern on the wallpaper.

 The doors and windows were an assortment of patterns - all different.

Does the pattern in the background look familiar?  It reminds me of something but I can't place it....

This is not a feel-good show.  I think I cried through one complete episode {over an hour} and part of many others-stock up on tissues if you decide to watch. 

So, besides the person in the comments of this Design Sponge city guide, am I the only one who watches these?
