Here in the Austero Penthouse sitting room, Jennifer included some nautical
themed brass items which remind us of some of the items in Lucille Austero’s
apartment during from the first three seasons. She even included a brass seal tossing
a ball which gives nod to “loose seal” get it, “Lucille” the character in the show.
Jennifer framed some of her own photographs for the bedroom but the rest were rented from prop houses. The Malm bed was borrow from Ikea, the draperies are from Cost Plus World Market and bench at the foot of the bed was loaned by the production manager Dan Butts. Jennifer said without places like Ikea, Target and the like, she didn’t know what she would do in the short time period she had to work. I can’t imagine having to work so quickly to produce something so important!
One enlightening comments Jennifer made was how she likes to layer interiors because that’s what makes them interesting rather than a nip tuck perfectly arranged room. “She said rooms that look lived in are more interesting that sterile rooms.” I think that gives me the green light to keep living with those stacks of magazines I simply can’t bring myself to throw out! LOL!
