I have always idolized Holly Golightly, Audrey Hepburn’s glamorous character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Her iconic black dress, round black sunglasses, and string of pearls has been copied by designers, celebrities, and ordinary people alike since the film debuted in 1961.
Holly is a single girl living in New York City, content to eat her pastry and drink her coffee outside of Tiffany and Co. on Fifth Avenue until she meets and falls in love with Paul.
One of my favorite scenes from the movie is the shot of Holly as she wakes up wrapped in her sheets and her eyes covered in a bright turquoise eye mask (I wish I looked as glamorous as she does upon first waking up).
Her apartment is small and somewhat shabby, but she doesn’t let her lack of a budget affect her sense of style. If Holly had an unlimited budget for interior design, I think her home would be classic, clean, and timeless with fresh cut flowers, lots of all white furniture and bedding, and shiny crystal chandeliers.
