Today’s news: cinema is all about architecture! Take a Look at the 5 Best Movie Homes of All Time
We have come a long way since the 1890’s when movies were one minute long and produced without any sound at all. Today we can’t even distinguish real life from virtual one. And that’s ok. Cinema was probably the best thing that has happened to the world! Seriously, if we could mention everything that movies have teached us, we wouldn’t finish this article today.
Most of the times, we got lost in the entertainment of things and don’t realize the art and work behind it. And they are kind of the big deal. Especially in the movies. The selection of the setting is as important as the cast, and everything should be perfect even in the smallest details. Good architecture is and should always be praised and, for that reason, today we bring you 5 Movie Homes To Blow Your Mind Away so you get inspired by their incredible architecture and interior design!
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)
Who could ever think of a beautiful place like this? Located in Highland, Illinois “The Ben Rose House” was designed by James Speyer and David Haid in 1953. An open plan living, mirrored home surrounded by nature landscapes. 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.
It’s 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.
Home Alone (1990)
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. First of all, it’s absolutely massive hosting the numerous family members, secondly its easily transformed into an assortment of booby traps. This beautiful movie home is located in Winnetka, Illinois and 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Sadly much of the home decor has changed (the festive red has been replaced by white), but we’d still move there in a heartbeat, especially with a classic chandelier falling from the ceiling like that.
The Big Lebowski (1998)
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 Lebowki.
Naturally, such an opulent creation made it the perfect setting for Lebowski pornographer Jackie Treenhorn 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.
American Psycho (2000)
Is not just Christian Bale that turns psycho for this movie. 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.
Iron Man (2008)
Mr Stark‘s home needed to make it on this list! Located in Malibu, micro controlled by a computer called Jarvis, it lists the following in its armory: a gym, a bar, a huge bed, a pool, a helipad and – oh yes – a garage, containing an assortment of classic automobiles and gadgets including a rather tasty armored flying suit!
Good looking girls isn’t the only think Tony Stark keeps in his home interiors. Inside the incredible architecture, there is a pretty, luxurious neat look surrounded by the beautiful landscapes of Malibu’s beach.
