This is… a showcase of visual content related to the movie ‘500 days of Summer’ for inspiration or simply delight of the spectator.
There’s Zooey Deschanel with her saucer-sized blue eyes, her thick bangs and her cute clothes, an excellent soundtrack that includes She & Him, The Smiths and Regina Spektor and a wry look at the down and outs of love.
Summer’s apartment is colourful and electic; old-fashioned yet modern with lots of DIY touches like those fairy lights wrapped around the wrought iron bedframe with its over-sized floral wallpaper, a jewelry tree hung with delicate origami swans and bedding. Tom’s apartment, otherwise a study in browns and beige, redeemed itself with a full blackboard wall.
IKEA plays a role throughout the film as a destination of burgeoning love…and its eventual dissipation.
