INSIDE THE SILVER SCREEN

While we have been keeping warm in style this season, the cooler months provide the perfect excuse to enjoy some much-needed, guilt-free time indoors, rugged up in the softest of blankets (or some days our pyjamas all day!) on our comfy sofas, simply lounging around in front of a roaring fire or the small screen.  

While the fanatics have been watching Game of Thrones or House of Cards, and others have been re-watching the Hollywood classics, we have been keeping our keen design eyes on our favourite interiors in films. From Italian luxury to mid-century modern, the Hamptons to Paris, our silver screen journey shone an entire new light on our film-watching experience. With so much inspiration and so little time left on our Winter clocks, let there be lights! Camera! Action!

FINOLA LOVES

The directorial debut of A Single Man by fashion designer Tom Ford generated much interest, but it was the setting - the iconic Schaffer residence, a 1949 redwood design by American modernist architect John Lautner - that provided the breathtaking backdrop for the 2009 American drama.

Diane Keaton's substantial character in Something's Gotta Give is equally matched by her substantial beach retreat. Quintessentially Hamptons style at heart, the interiors are awash in sea colours and blues, setting the tone for this 2003 romantic comedy.

The dynamic duo and (former) partners in crime Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie create a stylish, sexy home in Mr and Mrs Smith . . . One could say it is a house to kill for!

It was love at first sight upon seeing The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann. The stunning and spectacular art deco interiors show off the luxurious and timeless style of the 20th century at its best!

The masculine, moody and minimalist interior from Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer creates an incredible connection between architecture and landscape.

Carrie and Big's New York apartment in Sex and the City 2 showcases mid-century modern with all the luxurious designer trimmings and furnishings one would expect from the leading lady who lives for fashion, and has confessed to buying Vogue instead of dinner!

Who could forget the Spanish hacienda-style ranch that Meryl Streep's character owned in the romantic comedy It's Complicated. The vaulted ceilings, tiled roof, wide verandahs and kitchen are to die for!

There can never be too much frou frou, particularly in Marie Antoinette! So opulent, so French, so chic at the Palace of Versailles.
