Best Supporting Pillow

May 27, 2011

Two weeks ago, Taylor and I went to see the movie Bridesmaids. If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and go. Maybe a back-to-back Bridesmaids/Hangover 2 marathon this weekend? Bridesmaids totally cracked me up, and there’s a Wilson Philips cameo at the end that made me flashback to freshman year. It was then that I carried my Esprit purse that could hold 3 cassettes PERFECTLY in the front zipper pocket. I think Paula Abdul’s Forever Your Girl, Wilson Philips and Mariah Carey’s Visions of Love were in there on a permanent basis. I was also taking a “History of Rock ‘n’ Roll” class at the time, and at the beginning of each class, our teacher would ask if anyone had any songs they would like to play. Since I was always pre-loaded with my 3 cassettes, I think I played every deep Wilson Philips album cut (Eyes Like Twins, anyone?) over the course of the semester. I’m sure that was NOT what Mr. G had in mind when he designed the class curriculum.

Anyway, what could this possibly have to do with nesting? Well, I spied with my little eye a pillow in the movie that I have on my very own couch!

Here it is in Maya Rudolph character’s apartment, against the arm of the sofa. (Note also product placement of Cupcake wine, which isn’t very good, for the record. And Fuji apples, which are.)

Photo found here.

And here it is in our house!

It’s fun knowing “Stylists are just like us,” shopping at Homegoods and the like. I know from shoots I’ve been on, unless the look dictates something completely unique and upscale, the clothes and accessories are totally from everyday places like Target, Old Navy, Gap, J.Crew, etc. Hollywood is on a budget, too! For instance, the curtains in Maya’s Bridesmaids’ apartment? Totally from Pottery Barn.

It may even be the shower curtain version (also sold out). Cheaper, and you would never be able to tell on film.

Have you ever spied something you own in a movie or on TV?

In other news, do you think we should paint our pantry doors and trim (seen above behind our sofa) the same color as the wall? Taylor votes yes. I am a yes, but only if we change the doors to flat panel vs. louvered doors. What say you?

Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend!

    I vote yes Molly, and agree with you on changing the doors to flat panel:). That movie was hysterical too!

    Have to vote for louvered doors, since the contents can breath.
    The color is a personal choice.
    Have always loved your pillow choices!
    On way to meet Sheila and your Dad on The Hill!!

      Thanks for the vote. :) Have a great lunch! Guido’s is so good!

    I vote change the color, yes. And the doors will look good either way! I get Elaine’s point about things “breathing,” but we’ve always had sealed pantries and our beans and cereal and jams and, you know, eight bags of Pita Chips, are no worse for wear.

    Also, Mariah Carey’s debut album was simply “Mariah Carey,” unless you mean the single tape, and I still love “The Dream is Still Alive.” :-)

      You are right re: Mariah’s album. Did you hear she named her son Moroccan? Not Morocco. Moroccan.

      I wonder how Adrienne and Peter Brady are doing. Still married?

    Oh, and also, the last thing I remember noticing on celluloid that I personally have? The VS nightie Adrianne Curray would wear around on ‘The Surreal Life.’ Pure class.

    My Fair Brady: Still married, yes, but I saw that she was just on Howard talking about how awfully horribly hard marriage is and that sometimes they just feel like they don’t love each other but are working through. Ouch. I will of course listen to this interview approximately 16 months from now.
