The Parent Trap

A panoramic shot of the home. I love the layout of the estate and the tiered landscape. Photo source is the real-life architect Mark LaRoche (see more of the vineyard here).
The open living room layout with an oversized fireplace and interior shuttered windows. Slightly dated furniture, but the space is still beautiful. Photo source: Sophisticating
The front of 7 Pinprick Lane in the Parent Trap. A classic London townhouse look. I love window boxes. Photo source: Pinterest
The entry of the London home. These stairs are perfectly curved, and the orange color would be hard to replicate- it is the perfect shade! Photo source: All Things Luxurious

A very livable kitchen. Classically white and comfortable. Photo source: Pinterest
The bedroom (Diane Keaton at the desk there). Everything about this house is relaxed, inviting, and spacious. It is the kind of house that would look good with a little sand from the beach mixed in. Photo source: Collage of Life
A fabulous home with a beautiful breezeway above the door. This house is full of contrast! Photo source: Pinterest
The back of the house. Great navy loungers with white pillows. As you can see from the back of the house, it is a perfect modern spanish colonial. Photo source: Pinterest
The master bedroom. The textured rug makes for a more inviting space. Photo source: Pinterest
The living room in the movie. This house loves contrasting neutrals. I really enjoy the wide paned french doors. Photo source: Pinterest
This house a great reminder that white walls can bring in great light, and really allow for your furniture to be the focal point.
A sweet and charming English cottage. A great shade of blue/green lines the windows, door, and gate.
So English in every way. That tufted ottoman would look great in any space, modern or traditional. Photo source: Sophisticating

The charming house in It’s Complicated. A perfect placement for a front yard swing. Photo source: Pinterest
