Living In: Carol

by Garrett Fleming


The drama of 2015’s Carol is set in motion when Rooney Mara spies Cate Blanchett while perusing the doll display of a Manhattan department store. From there, the two set out on a love affair that changes both of their lives. The backdrop of the tale is a mixture of pastels, rich winter hues and sets that could’ve come right out of a paper doll house. It may not have taken home any Oscars this year, but we couldn’t resist digging into the stylish film and finding a few ways we can bring home the look of the movie. Enjoy!  —Garrett
