As though you don't have enough movies added to your watch list after last night's Academy Awards presentation, Blye Faust has a few more films for you to see. The attorney and film producer-turned-interior designer tells the SF Chronicle that one passion often influences the other. "I’m a total junkie for movies that inspire from a design perspective," she explains to the pub. (Not surprising, since she still produces films on the side.)

For a little design inspo, there are some Blye-approved films that you should add to your Netflix queue stat— A Single Man, North by Northwest, The Graduate, Down With Love, and "anything by director Wes Anderson," especially his latest Oscar-winner The Grand Budapest Hotel. Of course, if you need some help interpreting these looks into your own home, call on Blye and her ByBlye Interiors for help. She just might fit you in between her star-studded movie schedule.
