The original version of The Parent Trap starring Hayley Mills (and Hayley Mills) is the quintessential Father's Day movie. It has always been one of my favorite movies, and the costumes and sets are just as fabulous as the story itself. Not having watched it in many years, I caught the tail end of it on tv the other day and was reminded of how fabulous the dad's "bachelor pad" in California is.
A large sectional sofa is paired with a modern round coffee table and pair of orange chairs. Orange and white certainly had its moment before the orange and white of today!
Another seating area in the same room pairs a classic sofa and with a pair of armless chairs. Simple sofas and colorful chairs are a classic look.
All of the furniture fits on the rug with plenty of room to spare. Oh, to have that kind of rug budget!
Susan's teenage bedroom exemplifies Hollywood Regency glamour. From the peacock vanity seat to the hanging vanity (cool!) to the nightstands with oversized brass hardware, the oversize lamps, and the velvet topped stools, you could find so many of these elements in chic rooms today!
The headboard is scrolled metal headboard is fabulous.
The master bathroom seems way ahead of its time, too. I love the collection of purple art glass vanity pieces.
I spy a bar cart on the left in the kitchen.
