Movie Inspired Custom Home Features

Written by: Penny Siml on Monday, January 30, 2017

Custom home features can be inspired by your favorite movies.

Who doesn’t love curling up with their favorite blanket to watch a great movie? Movies are enjoyed by almost everyone and you may be surprised to learn that your favorite movie is the perfect source of inspiration for custom home features! As you watch your favorite movies, take note of the decor and styles of bedrooms, apartments, exteriors, and even garages. To help you get started thinking about these movie inspired features, here are a few of our favorites:


Glitz and Glam From The Great Gatsby

Whether you love the classic version or the more recent Leonardo DiCaprio flick, The Great Gatsby has some incredible inspiration for your custom home features. From bold wallpaper choices to the antique style furniture found in every room, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time whenever you come home. Perhaps one of the most unique custom home features this movie will inspire is the individual look and style of each room.


The Comfort of Home in It’s Complicated

It’s impossible to watch this movie and not want to live in this house. The kitchen is so inviting and comforting even the most amateur of cooks would be comfortable wielding a knife and serving up their favorite dishes. Move into the living room and you’ll instantly want to curl up on the couch with a cozy blanket and a great book. As you plan your custom home features keep in mind that after a long day at work, you’ll want some place to just be yourself and be comfortable.


The Simplicity of Holly Golightly’s Apartment in Breakfast at Tiffany’s

A quick glance around the apartment and you might think it’s pretty empty, but what you don’t notice right away are the unique pieces of furniture. By allowing your custom home’s design and decor to be simplistic, you allow unique pieces to stand out on their own. Plus, if you keep things simple, you’ll find your house is less cluttered and you have less to take care of.


Kathleen Kelly’s Apartment in You’ve Got Mail

Love shabby chic? Then this apartment has all of the inspiration you need for you custom home features. From the muted tones in her bedroom to the cozy living room, Kathleen Kelly’s apartment is all about being comfortable, warm, and inviting. If you love entertaining or just love spending time at home with your family, then this is the movie inspiration for you.


The Cottage Style in Marley & Me

Despite being an incredibly sad movie, the house the family moves into at the end of Marley & Me is incredible for anyone who loves the country or cottage look. The home, both interior and exterior, is the perfect blend of rustic and modern. From the stone work on the front of the house to the farmhouse kitchen, you’ll find inspiration for your custom home features around every corner of this home.
