Lov­ing La La Land?

South Waikato News - - Your Health - NATALIA DIDOVICH Icor­po­rate pas­sions:

La La Land is mak­ing a splash in cin­e­mas and its old Hol­ly­wood charm is cer­tainly worth mak­ing a song and dance about.

The crit­i­cally-ac­claimed mu­si­cal film picked up seven awards at last week’s Golden Globes and has quickly be­come a fan­favourite thanks to a vin­tage twist on a mod­ern love story.

If you’ve seen it and loved it, here’s a few tips on how to get the La La Land look at home.

La La Land em­ploys the tech­ni­colour pal­ette of years gone by to great ef­fect. Don’t be afraid to chan­nel colour in your home. Ex­per­i­ment with a few bright cush­ions or an eye-catch­ing piece of art in a con­trast­ing colour to get the look.

If your liv­ing room is says drab more than it says chic, try in­cor­po­rat­ing prints with pri­mary colours to in­stantly liven things up a bit.

The seam­less blend­ing of clas­sic Old­hol­ly­wood and mod­ern style is part of what makes the film’s set de­sign so in­trigu­ing.

Place a bright art deco set­tee be­low a piece of mod­ern art, or in­cor­po­rate an­tique store finds into your cur­rent decor add some points of in­ter­est.

Mia’s room shouts of her love for Old Hol­ly­wood cin­ema like the floor-to-ceil­ing In­grid Bergman poster while Gosling’s char­ac­ter, Se­bas­tian, pro­claims his love for jazz in his mem­o­ra­bilia col­lec­tion.

Take a leaf out of the film’s book and in­cor­po­rate your pas­sions into your decor. Cre­ate a dis­play for your favourite 80’s records or find a place to show­case your Crown Lynn col­lec­tion.
