I know some of you think my adoration of Gwyneth Paltrow is super lame. It might just be, but I happen to think she’s got pretty cool taste and I admire her desire to be more than just an actress by crafting her newsletter GOOP. I will agree with you, the name has got to go. Kind of like Cougar Town (one of the FUNNIEST shows on TV-watch it), the name puts some people off. But beneath the verbal oversight lies some really good stuff. Like this week’s newsletter showcasing an apartment Gwyneth had decorated for a short term stay while she filmed a movie. Photostylist Annette Joseph did a fabulous job designing the space in such a short amount of time, and I can totally picture Gwyneth and her adorable little ones residing here. Plus, since it was short term, it was done on a budget- making it more approachable for us real life folks without movie star status! Check out the details of the design here, but below are some teaser shots!
One of the things I love the most is that Annette borrowed artwork by Jeanette Montgomery Barron for the space. Jeanette is the photographer behond the amazing book My Mother’s Clothes (which I have to pick up ASAP). There is such a painterly quality to her work, and such touching meaning.
