Broken Embraces

I wouldn't say Pedro Almodovar's latest film, Broken Embraces (Los Abrazos Rotos), is my favorite (I preferred Volver and Talk to Her. I thought the story fell a bit flat here...), but despite that, the cinematography and visuals are all that you'd expect from Almodovar... RICH. Pitch perfect costumes and interiors--and how stunning is that Penelope?? The above interior of a Spanish beach villa stuck in my mind long after the credits rolled. The aqua wall is the perfect compliment to the warm patterns in the couch and wall art.

Click below for more stills of Penelope looking as gorgeous as ever.

Penelope Cruz as Audrey Hepburn in a film within the film. Can you believe the resemblance??

I saw the film a week a go and the interior of a Spanish beach villa is still stuck in my mind. I'm going to use this color pallet in my own apartment! Thank you for posting the photo in such a good quality, now I can start to decorate!
Best wishes from Iceland
