antiquey and ornate in places, and modern in others…
and more modern lines and whatnot… plus a super freaking cool shower.
Mmmk – not much time is spent in the apt – so we will move on directly to the house in the country – where most of the action happens, and most of the dreamy love is felt – by me.
Here’s some shots of the exterior – and the incredible lake and surrounding forest. Totally freaking isolated!
And surrounded by waterfalls and pastures and old trees and foggy fabulousness!
And this incredible vine covered wall. I would kill to have some secret vine covered doorway to nowhere on my property.
Not to mention partially ruined stone walls to leap over.
There are even some outbuildings out back. Maybe for farm animals or preserves or what-have-you.
I like that.
Here’s a close up of a groovy little balcony with majorly cool detailing on the eves and railing.
The living room area is super cozy and dark – with a giant stone fireplace.
The kitchen is through the door next to the fireplace – but there are so many doors and passageways! Like secret rooms even! In this shot you can see 2 different staircases to the second floor, two doorways into the kitchen, and some french doors that go out into a courtyard.
And here you can see that down the hallway there is a room with some stuff in it – we’ll come back to that later.
So here, off to the right, is a sort of pantry. It looks like it’s got the washer and dryer, and a cool little counter w/ a cupboard and drawers, and a shelf. But there is another little room that seems to be the actual pantry…
And at the very end we see a puzzle that Susannah has been putting together all throughout the movie. It’s the house. I know, I probably spoiled it for you. But it’s not like the house is the killer and I revealed the killer. It’s just a puzzle. Kinda like the movie. And Susannah’s brain.
I want a puzzle with a picture of my house on it.
Ok, so, I’m sure you’re thinking “where’s the root cellar? what was the upstairs like? why didn’t you take more pictures of Clayton?”
Well, I do freely admit that I have no idea if this place has a cellar. I’d like to pretend that it does. But there is no concrete evidence of a cellar, so we can either just say that the outbuildings out back had some sort of food storage capabilities, or we can all just live in a completely unrealistic dream world and say that there is a cellar…even though we didn’t see one. I’m fine with either option.
Second. The upstairs is cool. Take my word for it. Or better yet see the movie – cause it’s kinda hard to capture coolness in one shot sometimes. Sometimes coolness comes with a panning effect and Craftypants Carol does not have the technology to show you little video snippets. Oh wouldn’t that be great though! Instead of still by still – it would almost be like I was a realtor and I was showing you a video of all of the percs of the house! Only I would be the one buying the house. Don’t go getting any ideas.
On imdb it says that it’s filmed in Ireland. Big surprise – what with the gorgeousness and all.
So, lets rack up the points for the Images house (and apt)…
1. Groovy Apt – esp if it’s included in the deal
2. Awsomely Beautiful Grounds – with lake, waterfall, pasture, fog, etc
3. Super Cool Old House
4. Gigantor Kitchen
5. Many Rooms – even secret ones!
6. Cellar! I mean come on – how could this place NOT have a cellar. It’s in freaking IRELAND for crissake! Where else are the potatoes gonna go.
Well, that wraps up the latest entry. I hope the fallyness of this movie got you in the mood! And I hope it helped cool off the folks in the greater Portland Area today – cause it’s a stinking 90-something degrees here.
