Holly Golightly's Flat

The sparse and just-moved-in charm of Holly Golightly's flat in the film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" can be easily achieved with a few key items and eccentric sleepwear. Canadian company Flavour Design now has a replica of Holly's infamous bathtub sofa starting at $3,500 (ouch!). How could something that seems salvaged from a junk yard cost so much? Luckily for us impoverished young people, has a selection of handmade tub sofas at a price that won't break the bank. 

Holly's flat wouldn't be complete without a trunk disguised as a coffee table and a vintage suitcase tossed to the side topped with a rotary-dial telephone. For the finishing touches, add a few milk bottles to your fridge (and perhaps a pair of ballet flats), don a sleeping mask, tassel ear plugs, and a men's tuxedo shirt. Oh, and a cat named Cat would be purfect.
