A Little Less Dated St. Elmo’s Fire Set Style

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:

In Honor of The 25th Anniversery of St. Elmo’s Fire…

…May I present Demi Moore’s hilarious, glamorous at the time Georgetown apartment:

JULES: So, what do you think?

KEVIN: Very, uh, subtle…and very pink.

It was decorated by her neighbor Ron:

What’s funny is that it has some touches that remind me of Kelly Wearstler’s current Bravura Modern phase. Very Eighties Miami Vice (what is that thing hanging from the cabinet?!?!):

The piece de resistance is the huge Billy Idol face on the wall, complete with neon light earring. Unfortunately, I could not get a clear shot of this, but you get the idea:

What was most baffling was this clown that remained after Jules’ creditors came an cleaned her out. Apparently the repo men were scared of clowns:

Going back to the beginning of the movie, I can see this thing SAT ON HER BED! Really? Look closely at this bad picture from my tv:

It’s funny, this was really the only set that seemed ridiculously dated. The rest of them are as ageless as Rob Lowe’s face. I’ll share them with you in another post, as this one is getting to be way too long!
