My Oscar Contender Rooms


Bringing back a post from the past in honor of tonight’s Oscars. Another year has gone by and a couple of new movie rooms have made my short list this year. What movie rooms or interiors are on your shortlist?

My Oscar Contender Rooms-

It’s Oscar weekend and I will have a bottle of bubbly chilling  while I check out the red carpet arrivals and cheer on my favorite Oscar contenders.  To heck with Best Actor /Actress or Picture. Here are my picks  for Oscar winning movie rooms for people who like design….

I loved, loved, loved everything about Marie Antoinette. My god, it is Versailles already!

I had the immense pleasure of visiting the factory and seeing  where all the passementerie was made for the movie including this scene- Marie Antoinette’s arrival in France.

Or Brideshead Revisited…( Give me a period piece anytime.)

I still gasp a little when I see the winter palace in Dr. Zhivago….

The Great Gatsby… ( Can’t wait to see the sets on DiCaprio’s  version. )

Gatsby Update: Not bad Baz!

For some mod inspiration- Love the Doris Day +Rock Hudson movies like Pillow Talk …

Remember the  oh- so- chic  automated bachelor pad?

Leo Di Caprio looked dashing in this Aviator living room

Didn’t you just love Diane Keaton’s house in the Hamptons in Something’s Gotta Give…


Every time I watch this movie, I love it more.


Just watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s . Who would’t be enamored with this sexy room.


I am carrying around this clipping of the living room in It’s Complicated as inspiration for my family room redo.

Update: Family room redo with sitting area inspired by this shot- Done!

But my all time favorite movie design muse is Rosalind Russell’s Auntie Mame. How many times did they makeover the staircase? This film could be a CEU class in decorative arts!

What movies have tripped your trigger that you would recommend for design pros or design aficionados?
