Explore our list below, which includes Moonlight, 13 Going on 30, Carol, and Crazy Rich Asians, to name a few.
The Sun Is Also a Star (2019)
Set in New York City across the span of just one day, The Sun Is Also a Star is a feel-good film that will leave you hopeful. Our favorite design moment? The neon-colored karaoke room.
Set in the 1950s, Carol is filled with floral wallpaper and antique furniture as the backdrop to a love story starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.
Moonlight—which infamously received the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2017—boasts a stunning color palette of deep blues amidst a heartfelt coming-of-age love story.
La La Land (2016)
La La Land boasts no shortage of eye-catching backdrops throughout Los Angeles while capturing viewers’ hearts with Sebastian and Mia’s romance.
Rafiki—the first Kenyan film to be screened at the Cannes Film Festival—tells the love story of Kena and Ziki in a visually stunning and undoubtedly vibrant way.
Crazy Rich Asians (2018)
Crazy Rich Asians was undoubtedly *the* rom-com of 2018—and House Beautiful‘s favorite unofficial character was definitely the opulent home of Nick’s parents.
Happiest Season (2020)
In Happiest Season, Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis star in a rom com-drama set at Christmastime, with a festive house as the film’s backdrop.
Pride and Prejudice (2005)
13 Going on 30 (2004)
We’d be lying if we said that 13 Going on 30 isn’t one of the best rom-coms of all time—and we just can’t get over the decor of Jenna Rink’s apartment.
Lady and the Tramp (1955)
There’s a reason why Lady and the Tramp is a timeless love story—and we surely wouldn’t mind living in the Victorian dwelling that Lady calls home.
Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013)
If you were on Tumblr in 2013, chances are you’re familiar with Blue Is the Warmest Color, a love story between characters Adèle and Emma. Unsurprisingly, this film also boasts a dreamy color palette of shades of blue.
Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman star in Casablanca, a classic romantic drama set in Morocco. Needless to say, expect to see no shortage of Moroccan decor elements on display throughout the film.
In the Mood for Love (2000)
In the Mood for Love is a romantic drama with a plot as enthralling as the many patterned wallpapers seen throughout.
The Notebook (2004)
Filmed in South Carolina, The Notebook is a timeless love story about Allie and Noah, the latter of whom renovates a gorgeous house for them to live in.
Brokeback Mountain (2005)
Cowboys Jack and Ennis are the stars of Brokeback Mountain, which boasts a neutral color palette of rich earthy tones.
Titanic is known for Rose and Jack’s love story, yes, but can we talk about the grandiose design elements of the ship? (Like *that* staircase!)
When Harry Met Sally… (1989)
Set in Chicago and New York City, When Harry Met Sally… tells the story of two lovers amidst the backdrop of iconic cultural spots like the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Big Sick (2017)
The Big Sick is based on the real-life love story of actor Kumail Nanjiani and his wife, Emily V. Gordon, who penned the film’s screenplay together. (Did we mention Kumail’s fictional home is filled with antiques?!)
Call Me By Your Name (2017)
In Call Me By Your Name, Elio and Oliver fall in love in the Italian countryside, as Elio is staying at his family’s 17th-century villa for the summer.
