Curious for a look inside Christian Grey’s apartment?
According to set director, C. Scott Baker, the apartment was meant to be “modern and impersonal” with subtle clues as to who lives there. With plenty of modern and opulent décor found inside of the Seattle apartment, the look was designed to reflect Christian’s personality. Perhaps the best way to sum up the look would be with a few words: bold and dramatic.
While it probably isn’t possible to have skyscraper views, wraparound windows, and personal elevators –there are other aspects of the design that are more achievable. Here are a few of the highlights from the layout.
Marble flooring throughout the apartment make a strong statement. Hardwood floors are also found in various rooms. In the bedroom though, there’s wall-to-wall carpeting –a somewhat unexpected break from the marble and hardwood throughout.
The furnishings in the Seattle-based apartment are minimal, but each one was specific, unique, and purposefully chosen –from the pair of moose antlers decking the walls, to the Grand Piano, handmade in Italy with red spruce. All the art in the apartment was sourced with careful consideration, as Director Sam Taylor-Wood felt that only art that Christian would actually buy should be used. A sculptural sofa paired with a live edge wood coffee table, and plenty of dramatic mirrors complete the minimalist look.
While the décor may be sparse, the lighting in the apartment is nothing short of impressive. Avant-garde gilt sconces and chandeliers, combined with plenty of lamps and recessed lighting create a dramatic atmosphere.
