  6. The garden leaf bench is amazing, and there's quite a few on that list that I've never seen. It's embarrassing, but the latest swoon worthy house (interior) I saw on film was in "Curse of Chucky"... The moody walls, the black trims the impossibly tall ceilings.

    1. Horror movies can be a good source of decor. I loved the purple walls in The Woman in Black!

    1. I have seen a couple of versions, my favourite is the one I saw as a kid, made in the 80s, where Mary looks almost exactly like me as a little girl. The house in that one is spooky and beautiful too! I would love to have a secret garden!
