Some Things Never Change.


This scene is from the movie Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948) staring Cary Grant. A client was teasing me during our consultation that I sounded just like this when talking about paint colors. I hate to say it but it’s true. I did do sound just like this. Now the kitchen is to be white. Not a cold, antiseptic hospital white. A little warmer, but still, not to suggest any other color but white…I love it. Ha.

Thanks for sharing the video clip, Judy!

    I believe you meant robin’s egg blue, right???
    I did a paper on this movie in grad school; it was on cinematic history. I was also doing my thesis on the history of the bungalow and the move to the suburbs, so it dove-tailed nicely.
