THE 50 SHADES OF GREY MOVIE

While I haven’t read 50 Shades of Grey and I’m not really planning on seeing the movie, I couldn’t help but be interested in the interiors of Christian Grey’s Seattle penthouse apartment. Call me a design geek, but designer C. Scott Baker’s set design for one of the most highly anticipated films of the year has me completely intrigued.

MR. GREY’S LUXURIOUS ABODE

The ’50 Shades of Grey’ movie tells the story of E.L. James’ beloved novel about the explicit love affair between high-powered CEO Christian Grey and college student Anastasia Steele. This narrative of attraction between a young, naive woman, and a very wealthy, experienced man plays out primarily in the incredible Seattle penthouse apartment in which Christian Grey lives. If you’re like me, you’ll want to take a look at how Mr. Grey’s lavish and extravagant lifestyle is reflected in his luxurious abode.

THE ENTRANCE HALL

Film director Sam Taylor-Wood felt strongly that the only art that should be displayed in Mr. Grey’s home should be pieces that he would actually purchase.

    Where can I purchase Christian’s bedding set?

  • Chrissie

    I fell in love with the wallpaper too.
    I know it is a custom made, hand painted wall covering but I’m desperate to find something similar.
    I am quite artistic and have even thought If it was possible to get the basic back colour paper and then somehow hand paint the a similar image on.
    Any tips would be greatly received.
