I know that the holidays are over but I love that I was able to see this movie this past week. “The Holiday”…I have seen this movie just a few times now. I really love how the characters are so different from one another. One is very career determent and doesn’t shed a tear for a man while the other is so insecure and let’s people walk over her especially a specific man. What I loved most about the movie was their homes: both very different yet I could imagine myself living in both. One very cozy located in a village in England and the other contemporary located in LA of course.
Even though Iris’s house doesn’t exist in real life I really love the exterior.
This is Amanda’s home.
Let’s move into the interiors.
This is Iris’s cozy, eclectic living room. Lots of patterns and color. The natural stone on the fireplace wall. I really like the wood beams on the ceiling.
Compared to Amanda’s very contemporary neutral living room. Solid colors the only pattern I see is on the rug.
Moving on to the kitchen
Amanda’s enormous kitchen with the state of the art appliances. Of course a formal dining room.
The bedrooms: I love the fireplace in Iris’s bedroom but I am not a big fan of the bed frame. I have to go with Amanda’s bed frame here. I really love the simplicity of her room.
Let’s end with the bathroom.
Iris’s bathroom is small
While Amanda’s is big. Isn’t it interesting how both have a soak tub and almost the same bath tub filler?
Have you seen the movie? Which house would you prefer to live if given the choice?
