Hollywood Open House

It’s a rainy Friday here and I thought we could use some extra fun, so let’s go gawking at some movie star homes. We’re going to use the fabulous Architectural Digest as our tour guide today. All of the house images in this post come directly from them and the very talented photographers they work with for each month’s issue.

I “discovered” AD when I was in college and they did this amazing spread of old home decor photos from movies stars of the ’30’s and ’40’s. Some of these pictures were so old that they must have been pulled from the archives of those infamous Hollywood studio publicity offices. I have been hooked on Architectural Digest ever since then.

Have I ever told you that I’m an old movie fan? I am. HUGE fan. I took film classes in college and I even own dvds of some important silent films. There are few activities I love in this world like curling up with some fresh popcorn and a great old film.

Anyway, Architectural Digest takes amazing, timeless photographs, as you will see. Today I’ve gathered together some of the AD photo galleries of the homes of real Hollywood movie stars, both old and current, and linked them directly below. Let’s go knock on a few doors and see who’s home. You can visit as many or as few as you like, just be sure to wipe your feet!

  1. Jayne Mansfield’s bathroom, with its wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling pink shag carpet lets me know that if it’s your house, you can do whatever you want.
