O.J. Simpson, The 90's and Style.


Did ya'll get to watch the series premiere of The People vs O.J. Simpson last night? It was SO good.
I am already totally hooked on it, which considering how enthralled America was with the trial over 20 years ago, is not surprising. 

This is a weird comment, but if you are at all into reality tv, it's really worth a watch, because so many Beverly Hills/Los Angeles people that are still reality figures today are portrayed as their younger selves and that's really fun to see. I am LOVING David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian. We see far too little of him since Friends ended and I love getting a glimpse into what the original patriarch of the Kardashian family was like.


I am also loving Selma Blair's portrayal of Kris Jenner. She has always been a favorite (since Cruel Intentions) and it's fun to see her interact with Faye Resnick's character (who I did a lot of googling about last night after watching this and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.) I swear that Bravo and E! have an interest in this mini series, because they are playing up all the right people at all the right times coinciding with this show.


Anyway, we're not here to talk about famous murders/murder trials, as this is a style and interiors blog.

I did love watching all the 90's fashion and interiors pop up in the show last night and it was reminding me how we are really seeing a resurgence of 90's style both in fashion and interiors.
And I do not mean the grungy-Courtney Love, pants dropping, flannel shirt type of 90's.

I'm more into the Clueless, Carolyn Kennedy, Only You with Marisa Tomei ---Ultra CHIC type 90's.



For instance the resurgence of plaid and checks---which I must say I hope is back to stay for a while.




As seen in Clueless.


And FRIENDS.


And in one of my personal 90's favorites---The Parent Trap remake with Lindsay Lohan.
She is so darling here.

I am obsessed with plaid and checks in interiors right now. One of my client's houses has ended up being sort of Ralph Lauren esque meets 1940's modern and we've done LOTS of plaid. 

Love these rooms.





If you've never seen Only You with Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey, Jr, do yourself a favor and Netflix it immediately. It was my FAVORITE movie as a kid and might still be my favorite to this day.

Marisa Tomei's fashion is ON POINT---She even looks chic when running around in Keds, they're driving around Italy and Robert Downey, Jr. is hilarious and oh so cute.




Love her red dress in the movie and love red re-imagined by Miles Redd in this gorgeous dining room in a recent issue of Veranda.



More Marisa Tomei fashion in all it's 90's glory.

I love how people just unabashedly wore all white like all the time in the 90's.
Did dirt not exist then?



Carolyn Kennedy in all white.

I think we all know that all white interiors have surged in popularity in the last few years---especially where clean, all white kitchens are concerned.


More Carolyn Kennedy in a fab leopard coat.


I'm not sure that I can say that leopard has "resurged" as it's really always a classic neutral in my opinion, but I'm hard pressed not to love any piece of clothing or interior with leopard.


Love this room by Nick Olsen.

I'm not sure who the room below is designed by, but it pretty much inspired my own sofa.


Can't talk about The Parent Trap on this blog without drooling over a few of the interiors from the movie.

It was directed by Nancy Meyers who always always has fabulous sets, so that's no surprise.


I still think about the "London House" to this day. So traditional, so English, SO Classic.



I really feel like, especially in the last few years, that traditional interiors are "cool" again.

Love this room by Miles Redd.




Even though she's a total witch in the movie, you can't help but love Meredith Blake's wardrobe.

I still think about it to this day. The perfect picture of classic and chic. Such a Grace Kelly type look.




Classic Black and White will always be chic in interiors.

Love this foyer with the classic black and white floors and the gold and ivory buffet.


What was your favorite 90's look?
