Well, I showed you the most dated of the St. Elmo’s Fire sets, complete with a Rebel Yell mural. The rest of the sets, though 25 years old, could work with just a few tweaks.
First we have Andrew McCarthy and Emilio Estevez’s man cave, complete with bottles of alcohol, a mess, lots of stereo equipment and albums, and a coffin for a coffee table. Man Cave design never changes much, it just gets better gaming systems. This one probably had Colecovision or Atari:
Next we have Mare Winningham’s parents’ traditional home, which looks like it was inspired by Dorothy Draper’s original design for The Greenbrier. Now they just need Carleton Varney to come over and update it a bit:
Then we have Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy’s Georgetown loft. While it has a few bits of eighties I’d get rid of, like the glass block wall and all of those plants, the exposed brick, the oversized art, great natural light, and the open floor plan are all design elements that have endured. I think it’s such a mess in some of these pictures because they are breaking up and divvying up their belongings:
Hi, I'm Becky. I live in Atlanta. Besides acting as the Editorial Director here on Hatch, you can find me talking design over at Houzz. Make me happy — leave a comment!
