The best decor movies ever to (re) watch now

When it comes to movies, home decor can often deliver a more memorable performance than the actors. We may not be able to tell you what it’s about The favorite (2018), but the rooms in that building are worth the full price of the cinema ticket. Memories Barry Lyndon (1975), Stanley Kubrick’s three hour long film (pictured above ) starring Marisa Berenson and Ryan O’Neal? If so, it’s because of the incredibly beautiful scenes from the rococo evening only lit by candlelight. Sometimes a movie just has to look good to be great.

With this idea in mind, we asked eight A-List decorators about Elle Decor US to choose in movies with the most beautiful decor ever. Here’s what they suggested to us.


She’s Rich, the Bridegroom and the Killer (A New Leaf), 1971

“It’s a Forgotten Treasure directed by Mike Nichols, with sets coordinated by DD Ryan. She was the photo editor of the Diana Vreeland ad Harpers Bazaar and it affected me a lot. When I first saw this movie, I realized that traditional furniture could be updated completely with style. It was the emergence of modernism where a confusion suddenly arose between traditional and contemporary motifs. For example, you will see a Georgian sideboard next to an antique Chinese chair next to a Morris Louis painting. This film was a great barometer of change and had a huge impact on my work as a designer ” – Jeffrey Bilhuber.

Marie Antoinette, 2006

“I recently had the opportunity to revisit this modern classic directed by Sofia Coppola when she and Anna Sui organized an exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design in January. I was then reminded of how absolutely beautiful Versailles is. The film, set by KK Barrett, takes place in the private apartments and gives a glimpse of the human scale in which Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI lived, compared to what we know as the huge formal public spaces in the main part of the building. The costumes and scenery are beyond sumptuous, but it’s Coppola’s interpretation of 21st century fashion and music that makes the whole film so incredibly modern. “-Brian J. McCarthy

Anything can happen (something must give)2003

“This classic directed by Nancy Meyers, starring Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson, is still one of my favorite films of all time because of the set design by Jon Hutman. Keaton’s house in the Hamptons, with the double ceiling in the great room and the huge all-white kitchen with the big island, looks so realistic. This is exactly what I would expect a very successful divorced woman – a playwright in New York City in the late 1950s – to choose for her beach house. The house is elegant, but somewhat formal and tight, which seems quite reflective of its personality. – Sheila Bridges

I am love (I am love), 2009

“Luca Guadagnino’s beautiful film was shot in Milan against the backdrop of Villa Necchi Campiglio’s magnificent interior. How could he be wrong? But the film is not only backed by brilliant images, it is a really complex drama, starring the magnificent Tilda Swinton. If you’re looking for a perfect escape from the stress of the world – one that is rich on all levels – this is the ticket ” – Beth Martin

Fru min tante (tante Mame), 1958

“Everyone should have an Aunt Mame, the most overtly exaggerated caregiver in Hollywood history. You start to see it for Rosalind Russell’s appearance, but are fascinated by the constantly changing interior of her Beekman Place Manhattan duplex. I love watching the passage of time while “Mame’s interiors are evolving, reflecting its own changes. They are stunning and daring and a constant source of inspiration.” – Leyden Lewis

nocturnal animals, 2016

“Between the most beautiful film, is this Tom Ford movie on the podium. Although the story has many different settings, I was particularly attracted to the scenes in Amy Adams’ extraordinarily chic modern house in the Hollywood Hills, as well as her ultra-cool minimalist art gallery. What really left its mark is the way Adams, typically a “nice girl,” took on the character of Ford’s tortured heroine, transformed by the clothes and makeup he designed for her. ” – Ellie Cullman

Fanny and Alexander (1982)

Ingmar Bergman’s epic drama takes place in three beautiful houses in Uppsala, Sweden, in the early 20th century. I am attracted to the glorious period colors and antique Victorian furniture in the Ekdahl family home, as well as the modernity of Art Nouveau in the Jacobi house. Each setting is stunning, created with great attention to detail, leading to the Oscar award for artistic director Anna Asp. I always come back to see Fanny and Alexander to seek inspiration and be transported to the past! “ Juan Montoya

Ascension (2012)

“One of the most action-packed James Bond films is also a source of design inspiration, at least for me. Where do I start? I liked the look of the MI6 office, its tight limestone frame with horizontal and vertical graphic ribbons reminiscent of a Piet Mondrian painting. The only curved lines are in the Interstuhl Silver high back. Ms.’s home is filled with warm light, traditional British furniture and embossed wood panel details. I can imagine moments of relaxation on his couch. The scenes in Macau are also amazing. And can we please talk about the wild Shanghai casino with the entrance through the mouth of the dragon? Brilliant!” – Joy Moyler
