Celebrating Marilyn Monroe…How she influences interiors…

 August 5, 2012 will mark the  50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s death.    She is a true American iconic figure who  has influenced many different genres of both art and design.  She was quite the celebrity during her life and her popularity this year has mushroomed. We see her images everywhere! Learn how she influenced art and interiors with her luxurious style.

Why did Marilyn Monroe become an iconic figure?

Some may say the reason why Marilyn became such an iconic figure was because of the American artist Andy Warhol.  Around the time that Marilyn died, Andy was in the phase of his art career where he was silk screening popular American objects and people.  Among these images were a group of celebrities including Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Troy Donahue, Muhammad Ali, Jackie Kennedy, and Elizabeth Taylor.  He picked most of the celebrities because they had had a big influence on the masses.  It was ironic that Andy  created the iconic pop-art picture of Marilyn the week that she died.  This gave her pictures some shock value as well as  enhancing her celebrity status.  A great documentary that I would suggest to you if you  are interested in learning more about Andy Warhol’s work is Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film: American Masters (2006) Part 1 and Part 2.

This documentary has many interesting facts about Marilyn.  Information that is specific to Marilyn starts at (1:25:08) one hour twenty-five minutes and eight seconds into the movie.   It goes on to explain why Andy thought the timing was everything when creating a pieces of art showcasing the iconic star.

How  Marilyn has Influenced Interiors?

Since Marilyn has become an iconic American symbol, many accessories and furniture pieces have been made to remember her.  I have provided some pictures to show you how many different areas in interior design Marilyn has influenced.
