Inexpensive Inspirations: The Vibrant World of Powell & Pressburger

My routine readers will attest that the film reel I've been running on my life's projector lately is faded & scratched...so time to cast off those dull greys and jump into a world of vibrant technicolor! One of my biggest aesthetic inspirations is the work of film-making team Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, also known as The Archers: baroque, dream-like, and magical are all adequate descriptors for their visually stunning films. Not all their films were shot in color, but color-film is the arena in which they truly excelled. Bold compositions of strongly-saturated hues are a trademark of The Archers, and it is to them I owe my love of pairing complementary colors in both fashion & home decor --a passion which is evident in my posts Decor on the Dash and Home Decor Emergency. But today's post is all about urging you to watch their movies and likewise be inspired!

On that note, I wish to share with you my latest Polyvore collage:
