Thinking Outside the Boudoir: Annie

For those of you just recently visiting My Little Boudoir, this post is part of a monthly series called Thinking Outside the Boudoir, where I share my fascination of homes from the movies. While some may not be practical for everyday life, or represent my overall ideal decor, I would love to spend some time in them, even just for a night. In some it is the decor that I fancy. In others it’s the architecture or floor plan. And in some I think it’s my fondness for the characters. The movie home that I want to share today is one of my childhood favorites, Annie.

Growing up, my grandfather had gates entering his driveway. I always thought it made the entrance feel so grand and exclusive. Daddy Warbucks’ gates are much more ornate and fancy, making them part of his estate that I would like to be mine.

The gated entry wouldn’t be complete without a circular driveway (with a fountain in the middle) or a porte-cochere, as seen here.

What a beautiful foyer. The doors have so much detail and are simply beautiful. This should prepare you for what comes next…

°°°

…the grand hall! Wow, how spectacular would it be to walk into your home and see this? When I was a girl, I use to dream of owning this home one day. As of now, it doesn’t look like that is going to happen, but why not keep dreaming? I will, however, have black and white checkered floors in my home one day.

And what’s a grand entry without a grand stairway?

°°°

Daddy Warbucks had such a classic office with dark woods and floor to ceiling and doors that went out onto a lanai. I likes…

°°°

Annie’s bedroom was just darling and complete with French antique furniture, luxurious linens and all covered in pink.

°°°

Now for Ms. Grace Farrell’s boudoir. This is like a dream boudoir, complete with a dressing table (separated from the rest of the room with a curtained doorway), office space and lounging area…oh so deluxe!

Now for the room that was my favorite as a child. No, it’s not a dead guy in a pool. That’s Daddy Warbucks’ reflection on the framed out mirrored ceiling in the room with the indoor swimming pool.

°°°

°°°

Top all of that off with beautiful grounds and gardens that rival Versailles.
