When I saw this film my jaw dropped from the sheer glamour of it all! Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day is a beautiful gem of a film…still need to read the book! The set design of a young actresses apartment (a la sugar daddy of course) in London is 1939 is an Art Deco fantasy. If I ever get that country house I am surely going to call on production designer Sarah Greenwood and set decorator Katie Spencer to wave their magic wand over it.
By the way, this dream team also won a BAFTA for their set designs for Atonement…they are unstoppable! Sarah also designed for: The Chronicles of Narnia TV series in the 80s (remember that crazy Silver Chair?…I know!), Pride and Prejudice (the new one that’s not as good as the 6 hour one), Hanna and the new Anna Karenina…she’s fantastic and must really like Kiera Knightly.
