Ugly Beauty: What's in a Name?

I'm fast developing a Hulu addiction, which has, curiously, mirrored my design addiction. This wonderful world of pausing to look at gorgeous room decor on your computer is fabulous. I've even taken taken a few screen shots and emailed them to friends ("this looks just like your couch! Your couch is on TV!"). Hulu also introduced me to Ugly Betty, a show I just never got around to watching previously. It's entertaining, but what really made me excited were the interiors, designed by the most fabulous Hollywood name ever:  Rich Devine. The sets are so colorful and unique they almost overpower the characters.
Not your typical office space. Where is the office equipment?
The conference room: how much does this remind you of 
Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic? It's in the same shades as those 
zippy blue suits and orange hats.
The fishbowl effect: surround view offices bring even more 
opportunities for critiquing your office mates' clothes. Really, the space is
so fluid, pictures won't capture the feel of it; you need to watch for yourself.
Willie (the Terrorizer in Chief) lives in this octagon-dominated apartment. 
Eat your heart out Thomas Jefferson! And it has Regency style on steroids. 
 A tableau in Willie's apartment.
Another grand interior view, dining room this time. Don't those chairs look familiar?
Ah, yes, Kelly Wearstler for Bergdorf Goodman. Perfect Regency: not being able to see who is sitting nearby is very enigmatic - the perfect setting for a mystery movie! (Note the marvelous paint-detailed trim in the background.)
P.S. Many pieces of furniture featured on Ugly Betty are from Made By Hickory Chair. Check out their blog and products here.

Ugly Betty is my favorite show and I found out last week it is going off the air in May. ugh, so disapointed. I love the fashion and the interiors.

Wouldn't it be fabulous to work in an office decorated like that! I enjoyed Ugly Betty just for the fashion and decor.

I've always thought their sets were ahead of the curve! Didn't know Hickory Chair was the source for many of their looks. It's like the Jetsons came into money!

The BEST things about Ugly Betty were definitely the sets. Loved Wilhemina's apartment in particular.

Oh my. Stopped in my tracks. Beautiful...can I please have those chairs? They have been on my mind lately :)

Note to self: must watch.
