Did you know Japanese Trash is also on Tumblr? What I primarily post there is the same thing you see here–but I also repost stuff from the Tumblrs I follow. I like the format because it’s so free-flow and impulsive. So I thought I’d let you know you can find me there if you’re someone who prefers that channel over other methods of getting my posts.

Here are the next few items coming up in my queue from one of the other Tumblrs I like, Bungalow Classic; enjoy!

Millwork: In praise of molding and other detail. - The Interior Collective | japanesetrash.com

I’ve always had a strong affinity for precise detail work. That’s true whether I’m enjoying a great actor’s performance on screen or I’m drinking in amazing architecture during a home tour event. So when I see particularly stunning molding, millwork, or other detail in an interior, I’m always captivated. – See more at: The Interior Collective

Well, when I posted “See you then,” I didn’t think it would be cocktail time before I had a chance to come back and post again. But that’s how my day went today. As an apology, here’s a photo of Tom Ford having a drink and looking stylish in the stainless steel lined living room of his former London home:

The celebrity real estate world seems to be in hard-core spin mode this week because Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband have once again listed one of their NYC homes for sale. Apparently, they’ve never actually lived in the property, but purchased and overhauled the townhouse in 2011. I’m not one of those die-hard “Sex and the City” fans–in fact, I’ve only seen a handful of episodes (give me “AbFab” any day over SATC)–but I like SJP in one of my favorite films, “The Family Stone”. But I really like her husband, Matthew Broderick, as the title character in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”.

Nerd-y aside here to establish my fan-boy cred: In fact, I still have my Leisure Rules FBDO pin from when I saw the premiere of the movie back in the day:

But on to the townhouse that’s causing such a stir. It’s a very nice home, as you might expect. I’ve chosen a few of the images to share with you.

Tasteful living room with just the kinds of art and objects you might expect for SJP & Matthew Broderick. | japanesetrash.com

The living room is contemporary and tasteful, with just the kinds of art and objects you might expect for SJP & Matthew Broderick.


The fancier of two dining spaces from the Parker/Broderick townhouse that went on the market (again) this week. | japanesetrash.com

This is the more formal of two dining spaces shown in the listing. The townhouse has seven fireplaces. That dining table is an art piece in and of itself–really more like something Cameron’s dad would have in FBDO, I think.


Less formal dining space--I assume it's in the kitchen--from SJP and Matthew Broderick's townhouse. | japanesetrash.com

Here’s the more relaxed eating space–I assume it’s part of the kitchen. I love a round dining table, so this space really appeals to me. Plus, those doors to the outside are very nice.

Finishing up the post with this bedroom and bathroom. While there’s nothing I’ve found to confirm it, I’m assuming these are paired since they share the same design in fireplace surround.
