The Ten Best ‘House Is The Hero’ Movies On Netflix

The Ten Best House is The Hero on Netflix on vickiarcher.com


It was hard to stop at 10.

If you are a lover of all things decor, then you will appreciate just how precious an immaculately crafted interior can be. Bright white and spacious in the London suburbs, traditional oak with a warming fire in Canada, or maybe an art nouveau inspired loft conversion situated in the heart of New York City.

If there was an inspiration-filled bible of décor and architecture waiting to be appreciated, these movies are certainly ticking boxes.

Peter Tolkin’s cleverly designed ‘Sherman House’ quickly became our new design crush in this film. Who would not want to wake up to those views every day, and taking a dip in that tempting back-yard pool would be, well, just bliss.

 Green Card

As if we weren’t already envious of Andie MacDowell, her New York apartment gives us everything we could dream for and more. The red-bricked building had us at hello as we wondered what marvelled inside. The answer being, of course, none other than Bronte’s very own rooftop greenhouse. Could there be anything more romantic?

I Am Love

They say true love is hard to find, they have never explored the sensational décor of the Villa Necchi Campiglio. Deep golden upholsters and glistening chandeliers fill the home of the Recchi family as the stories of their life unfold before our eyes. Never once have remote landscapes looked so enticing.

The Duchess

The fairy tale Stately that illuminates our screens is one to never be forgotten, and certainly one fit for aristocracy. Traditional English décor will always express something unique and homely in our eyes, with the added indulgence of that exceptional grand staircase.

 The Intern

Nancy Meyers’ delicious décor preferences shine through in all aspects here, but the real showstopper is the light bearing and all expansive wonderland that homes the ‘About The Fit’ fashion team. Think converted suburban loft meets contemporary spacious living and you are somewhat on your way. Where do we sign up?

– The Bank Note Building, Bronx, New York – 

Under The Tuscan Sun

Every room in this gorgeous retreat is bustling with a certain character and charm that only exists in true Italian craftsmanship. Escaping to Italy was already a dream to be conquered, now to add the finishing touches. Our love for those rolling hills has only fallen deeper.

– Villa Laura, Tuscany, Italy –


The Parent Trap

Equally divided is our love for both the houses in London and California. Reinforcing, there is no need to be single minded when it comes to beautiful interiors. There is something about a traditional London pillared porch, which is irresistible, but then again, the chartreuse climbing ivy in Napa Valley is also stealing our hearts.

– Staglin Family Vineyard, Napa Valley, California –

A Single Man

 A hidden gem amongst the forests awaits us in the story of two lovers. Our emotions are quick to be overshadowed by the blissful views that lie beyond the tessellating glass doors, immersed by the scenes. Living in a redwood residence at the foot of the Verdugo mountains? Simply idyllic.

– The Shaffer Residence, Verdugo Hills, California –


 It’s Complicated

Could we ever forget the stunning hacienda-styled home belonging to Jane Adler? Spanish décor speaks a lot about space here with more than a few wide spreading lawns and a flower sprinkled veranda or two to be enjoyed. Topped off with a freestanding bath, yes please.

– Hidden Valley, Thousand Oaks, California –


 Something’s Gotta Give

How do you have the best pyjama party possible? Begin by inviting Jack Nicholson and stealing the living room setting from Something’s Gotta Give. The enchanting beach house plays home to Erica and is situated in The Hamptons. Although Diane Keaton’s timeless beauty will always be cause for appreciation, this time our eyes are planted firmly on that haven of a house.

A sense of place in a film is as important as the actors. In fact, place IS a character and it drives the mood and the story. How did I miss “I Am Love?” About when my husband died, so…. This evening I am watching it. Thank you, Vicki! xoxox, Brenda


Hello Vicki, I love this list. I am such a fan of “I Am Love” – the house is absolutely a character. We visited it in Milan – it is open to the public. Villa Necchi is easy to reach form the centre of Milan.


PS and also the wonderful ball room scene in “The Leopard” – filmed in Palazzo Valguarnera Gangi, Piazza Croce dei Vespri in Palermo. I love the film and the book too. A fascinating insight into the changing social structure of Sicily and its families.


This is a terrific list! Thank you. I’d add Tom Ford’s other film (besides A Single Man) – Nocturnal Animals. The character of Amy Adams’ lives in a stunning home!
