i will always love the party, mostly due to the fact that the phrase ‘birdie num num’ is a running joke in my family. second to peter sellers’ antics, the best thing about this film is the house where all the action goes down. as a kid i thought nothing was more glamorous than a house that had a water running through it (am i right?) … i still kind of think that! i also love the way sellers wanders around, completely out of place – i totally empathise with his party awkwardness… obviously the sixties vibe completely appeals to me as well. haven’t seen the party? do it.
my little flat with zero forest / mountain / lake view is becoming increasingly depressing the more i look at these

i’d like to put an order in for one of these, thanks.
i’m not sure that i’m sold on the design of this house, but i’m certainly envious of that huge deck – i can definitely imagine spending hours lazing about, catching some rays and watching the water. great party potential, too. notice the fire-pit that disappears into the floor during the day…
this house is totally a case of oooooh i love the interior, but blegh why did they have to put that white block in the middle of a street filled with pretty old houses? really? way to ruin the neighbourhood guys.
