Mildred Pierce

I loved the recent HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce, starring Kate Winslet. It was very different from the Joan Crawford movie, evidently the new version follows the book more closely. I really loved the clothes and furnishings in the new version.  It is a showcase of 1930s era vintage style, albeit a Hollywood fantasy version of the 1930s. I was going crazy over all of the details. Here are a few scenes. Kate's kitchen has depression glass, an enamel topped table and lots of great knick knacks.

 The green and black bathroom is terrific and her bedroom is lovely. Dig that vanity table.
 Fabulous fashions on parade. The clothes have so many details and trims and decorative features, swoon!
