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 rooms from movies for people who like design….

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

Or Brideshead Revisited…

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)

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…

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

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?
