The interesting story of Grey Gardens was brought back to life in HBO's 2009 movie starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange. Recently HBO has been replaying it, and I thought I would do a post on this gorgeous house turned to ruins. I love that in the film, the house is a character on its own, seeing it from its majestic heyday to its depressing dilapidation.
In this post I thought I'd use some of the rooms as inspiration, showcasing modernized spaces and products reminiscent of Grey Gardens.
What stands out in several of these spaces are how the walls are treated, wall coverings, wall panels, etc.

Another element in the house that made a statement were the light fixtures. The use of sconces were in many of the spaces, and the chandeliers were breathtaking.
