Marilyn Monroe
I love this photo for many reasons. First, I've always wanted a cozy little reading nook like this. Second, Marilyn looks totally casual and cute in her button-down and cuffed jeans. Third, the art. I'm actually not sure whether this photo was staged or if this was a real spot in Marilyn's home, but I'm hoping for the latter. I'd like to think that she chose all that artwork herself. And lastly, the colors! Shades of seafoamy turquoise and pale pink next to the rich wood shelves make for such a lovely combination.

She looks soooooo cool. And yeah, let's just believe that the photo wasn't staged and that she chose all that awesome artwork by herself. I Had never seen this picture.
Brilliant.
