Living in Sense and Sensibility

This post courtesy of Design*Sponge:

Sense and Sensibility is such a sparkling Austen adaptation that I kept forgetting to pause it to take movie stills for this post. The Dashwood sisters steal your heart right from the get-go, thanks in no small part to Emma Thompson’s fluid screenplay and director Ang Lee’s warmth and honesty. Sensible Elinor and flighty, impulsive Marianne are complete opposites and it’s a true testament of my fan-girlness that I mark my personality evolution in terms of Austen heroines. I started off as a die-hard Marianne but am slowly turning into a snooze-worthy rendition of Elinor.

Wildflowers, English cottages, homespun linen and ironstone pitchers plus, ahem, a healthy dose of Col. Brandon make Sense and Sensibility a worthy object of aesthetic obsession. I may not have the cottage or the Colonel, but lord help me, I will pick wildflowers every chance I get (even if it means snooping in the back alleys of Brooklyn).
