The Inspiration of Julia Child by Erin Ferucci, Designs 4 Living

In case you haven't heard, SONY pictures will be releasing a new movie about Julia Child called Julie & Julia, on August 7th, starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. Meryl Streep playing Julia Child, come on, that is delicious!
I'm excited about this movie for many reasons. I am a huge Julia Child fan. I wasn't always such a fan, but in the '90s I treated myself to cooking class with the great woman herself. It was in Santa Barbara at The Biltmore, one of those short intensive, immersion excursions. It was amazing, the food, the conversation and yes I will admit, a bit of wine. It was truly wonderful, and Ms. Child herself was, funny, eccentric and a little wild. I was inspired. It was a pivotal time for me. I was a successful young designer with no other plans, but I had a passion for good food. Working with Julia Child I realized I didn't want to just design interiors, I wanted to help people to design a lifestyle.

Clearly Julia Child has inspired many women. The movie follows one young woman's story (Amy Adams)as she finds her inspiration in Julia Child. From the trailers the movie looks, funny, poignant and inspirational. With Nora Ephron, a funny "foodie" woman, as both writer and director I think we're in for a treat. Julia Child was an amazing woman who broke down countless barriers in the world of fine food and she had a tremendous impact on my life and business. I can't wait to see the movie!
