Every cinema aficionado knows that a film setting sometimes is as important as the plot or the main character. Both the casting and set decor choices have to be extremely well thought, in order to make everything perfect and harmonious. For that reason, and because we love movies and the Oscars are almost here, today we’re making a flashback to 5 of the most famous movie home designs of all time!
FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF
Located in Highland, Illinois “The Ben Rose House” was designed by James Speyer and David Haid in 1953. It’s almost impossible to believe this movie home was put on the market for $2.3 million but remained unsold for 2 years. It’s since been undergoing renovations and should be available again soon.
Its interior is also something Ferris Fans would like to live in. Natural lighting sure makes its shine in this living room, making the warm tones stand out from the neutrals. Only one thing is missing, a great mid-century lighting design!
Let’s start by saying the only thing that isn’t funny in this movie is the great architecture and design of McCallister‘s home. This beautiful home is located in Winnetka, Illinois and was sold for $1.58m in 2012.
Sadly much of the home decor has changed (the festive red has been replaced by white), but we’d still move there in a heartbeat.
THE BIG LEBOWSKI
Built between 1961 and 1963 by architect John Lautner, the incredible Sheats Goldstein Residence has been featured in famous movies such as Charlie’s Angels and of, course, The Big Lebowski.
Such an opulent creation made it the perfect setting for Lebowski pornographer Jackie Treehorn and thus, its place in cinematic history was secured. This impressive building has 5 bedrooms, 5 baths and a coffered ceiling living room that boasts 720 skylights.
This Manhattan residence is the ultimate dream house! Although it might be challenging to keep the place clean due to its all-white home decor, it has a sleek, modern and stylish design everyone should literally die for. DelightFULL’s Sinatra floor lamp or Stanley floor lamp would also look amazing in this mid-century living room.
Located in Malibu, and micro-controlled by the world’s most famous AI persona, Jarvis, this luxurious home lists the following in its armory: a gym, a bar, a huge bed, a pool, a helipad and a garage, containing an assortment of classic automobiles and gadgets including a rather tasty armored flying suit!
Inside this incredible architecture piece, there is a pretty, luxurious and neat look surrounded by the beautiful landscapes of Malibu’s beach. Our favorite thing? That mid-century lighting design.
