Location, Location, Location

I came upon the Beach Studios site through the awesome My Favorite and My Best blog, and have not been able to get off it for about 24 hours.  They are a photo/film shoot locations rental company in England who have a portfolio of drop dead gorgeous spaces available for rent (for movie making the like).  I think one of the coolest jobs ever would be to be a set decorator- to get a back story of a character and have the ability to craft who they are through their living space without having an actual living, breathing client. I’d relish the opportunity to take one of these empty spaces and imagine who would be living there right down to what books are on the bookshelves and knick knacks on the dresser.

This site is such an escapist fantasy (and total house porn for me).I had a hard time editing down to even this ridiculous amount, so I hope you’ll go on the site!

Books in a fireplace + tufted walls? Two things I didn’t know I liked.

They even have crazy glamorous yurts.  This girl looks really happy outside her yurt with a good book and some wine. Maybe I need a yurt.

I’m going to have a hard time not coming back to this site today as I feel wretched with a cold and want nothing more than to be in an English cottage in the countryside with tea, a blanket and book RIGHT HERE:
