While I was interning at Disney I noticed that they had the placed rigged perfectly for inspiration! Because my film is set between the 15th and 17th century I wanted to decorate it with a renaissance look. I got everything you see there, spare the shelves, for 14 bucks! Thrift stores rock! Complete with a maquette bust of Brianeli, mirror, and scene shelves it's all the inspiration I will ever need.
A lovely shot here of my roommate and fellow animator's desk adjacent to mine, Mel's features a contemporary roma-irish gypsy decor that is both colorful and delightfully homey. Plus with her so close to me, fist pounds are frequent and powerful.
