Don’t Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire look lovely in this sumptuous mirror frame? And how about Alfred Hitchcock in the classic black one? Together, they inject some playfulness into this wonderfully opulent restroom.

We’re getting a little off topic here, but still: what’s a classic Hollywood movie without a good cocktail? And where would James Bond be without his martini? Good reasons to buy a vintage bar cart. It looks great and you’ll always be ready for a party.

American photographer George Hurrell is said to have invented the celebrity glamour shot. He surely is a master, bringing out the best in stars such as Joan Crawford, Humphrey Bogart and Greta Garbo. His best work can be seen in George Hurrell’s Hollywood (Running Press), a beautiful book of over 400 pages.
