“Tiny bathrooms, creepy roommates, mice-infestations — typical apartment living is nothing like the movies. Our fifth-story walk-up is a far cry from the spaces we dreamed of when still living with Mom and Dad; there isn’t even one spiral staircase or floor-to-ceiling window. Looking back, we realized that many of our dream apartments were inspired by our favorite films”.
We give you a selection of the Photoplan team’s favourite film flats, enjoy…
Somari lusts over Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big's luxurious Manhattan flat, and incredibly spacious closest, from Sex and the City (the movie).
Paul likes the slick, contemporary cool pad of Sharon Stone as Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct, among other things.
Martyn has a special appreciation for the flat rented by John Cleese in the film, A Fish Called Wanda, because he used to work in the same building.
Kathleen finds the apartment from Rosemary's Baby to be creepily classic NYC cool. In the film, Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow) and her husband Guy move into the Bramford, a Gothic, 19th century New York City apartment building with a history of unsavory tenants and mysterious events.
Mat's dream lair is that of Dr. No from D. No, with its large glass window looking out under the sea, serving as an aquarium.
