Amélie (2001)


Filmed with high saturation, Amélie is not only rich in colour but so is her quaint apartment. With her bedroom every bit as vibrant and quirky as Amélie herself, her ode to deep red walls, quilted bedspreads and obscure dog portraits is captivating.

It’s Complicated (2009)

It's Complicated

One of Nancy Meyers’ iconic films, her homage to creating stunning kitchens peaks in It’s Complicated. Not to mention, the gorgeous vegetable patch in the garden and the entire house plan in general. After all, it’s nearly impossible to watch it without dreaming of cooking in her open-plan kitchen or spending time in her muted living room wrapped in a cashmere blanket.

Under The Tuscan Sun (2003)

Under The Tuscan Sun

Whether you’re dreaming of your future Tuscan escape or not, Frances’ home—post renovation—is a vision. With the perfect country-style kitchen as the main backdrop in the home, the Italian villa’s huge fresco-riddled walls and natural light are out of this world.

American Hustle (2013)

American Hustle

Perfect for any ’70s lovers out there, David O Russell’s American Hustle may have been jam-packed full of famous faces but it also packed a punch in the interiors department. Drenched in brown corduroy and rich patterns, the interiors boast indoor shrub beds, velour bedspreads and shag piles as far as the eye can see. 

A Single Man (2009)

A Single Man

Based in the 1960s, every one of A Single Man‘s interiors makes excellent use of layered patterns, colours, textures while keeping to their vision of stylised and chic interiors that’s sure to have you dancing the twist in no time.

Call Me By Your Name (2017)

Call Me By Your Name

Rather than causing waves of anxiety, maximalism is front and centre throughout Call Me By Your Name and it’s never looked so good. Much like the home in Under The Tuscan Sun, there’s something about an Italian villa filled with antiques, lamps and a grand piano that’s sure to please.

Atonement (2007)


Based on Ian McEwan’s acclaimed novel, Atonement‘s interiors are nothing less than quintessential British charm. From the intricate cornicing, detailed chandeliers and endless florals, the Tallis’ home, along with its sweeping curtains and richly embroidered upholstery, are lessons in achieving old-school luxury.

The Great Gatsby (2013)

The Great Gatsby

Known for his elaborate visual masterpieces, director Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel secured the film an Oscar for Best Production Design—and it’s easy to see why. Drenched in delicate pink light with champagne accents, Daisy Buchanan’s sitting room is one of the most memorable interiors from the film. From its flowing curtains to its ornate chandelier, there’s enough opulence to last a lifetime.

The Parent Trap (1998)

The Parent Trap

While most Parent Trap fans remember Elizabeth’s stunning terrace in London, it’s Nick and Hallie’s home in the Napa Valley that caught the eye of interior lovers everywhere. From its open plan, sky-high ceilings and its breathtaking view of the vineyard, every fan has probably dreamt of living in that home—and with Chessy by their side.

Marie Antoinette (2006)

Marie Antoinette

Beautifully opulent, which is far from surprising given Marie Antoinette’s history, Sofia Coppola’s mid-Noughties adaptation captures the essence of the French Queen’s reputation in every way. Filmed in Versailles itself, the palace’s interiors are historic, extreme and heavenly chic.

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Located below the snow-capped mountaintops of the Eastern European The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson’s sets boast crimson red carpets, marble columns and ornate brass lighting, which was created in the atrium of Görlitzer Warenhaus—a vacant art-nouveau department store in eastern Germany. From the pleasant symmetry to its pastel-hued sets, production designer Adam Stockhausen referenced archived imagery of Alpine ski resorts and it’s more than pleasing to the eye.

The Holiday (2006)

The Holiday

Whether it’s Iris’ quaint cottage in the English countryside or Amanda’s exquisite Los Angeles mansion, both homes are riddled in interior design styles that we’re desperate to replicate. In particular, Amanda’s warm whites with accents of deep browns and neutrals keep the huge home feeling both cosy and chic.

The Favourite (2018) 

The Favourite

Heavily-tapestried walls and plump four-mattress beds are just some of the extravagant details in The Favourite. The black comedy, about two royal cousins competing for the attention of Queen Anne, is set during the 18th century which explains the excessive artworks and ornate floral arrangements.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

A Clockwork Orange

Garish retro interiors are the main focus of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, which documents the horrific crimes committed by a gang of young men in a dystopic Britain. Set in the ’60s, the film was shot mostly inside real homes, this film is the perfect mood board for mod colourways and pattern-on-pattern obsessives.

Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

Crazy Rich Asians

Mostly filmed in Malaysia, the film was shot in abandoned mansions and former boutique hotels to depict the character’s opulent homes. Each homes’ floors were painted to look like they were clad with expensive tiles, upholstered walls in ornate wallpaper and even had a faux stuffed tiger created. Either way, the jade green and crimson colour palette is inspiration enough.

Father Of The Bride (1991) 

Father Of The BRide

For those who prefer more cosy surroundings, Father Of The Bride perfectly demonstrates how to pull off homely chic, but with a polished finish. From the French doors to the open-plan kitchen, its Californian design aesthetic is both classic, contemporary and sure to stand the test of time.

Jackie (2016)


While Pablo Larraín’s Jackie saw Natalie Portman spend her “at home time” in The White House rather than her own home, there’s no denying that the interiors are still jaw-dropping. Replicating the Kennedy’s White House, set designer Véronique Melery focused on the First Lady’s with American decorator Sister Parish, decorative arts expert Henry Francis du Pont, and French designer Stéphane Boudin of Maison Jansen. From the Oval Office’s iconic red carpet to Jackie’s love for antiques, the home is a story in classic American style.

Parasite (2019)


Created by Bong Joon Ho for his Oscar-winning film Parasite, the mansion in the movie is practically a star in its own right. From its contemporary layout to its sleek structure, the juxtaposition of the polished, grey cement floors to the warmth of the wood ceiling almost feels like an ode to stereotypes being turned on their heads. Either way, the hyper modern home definitely offers futuristic inspiration.
