Fashion designer Tom Ford ventured into film-making with his directorial debut, "A Single Man," in 2009. I recently watched the movie again and, as one would expect, noticed a lot of details I missed the first time around. Ford's designer touch is noticeable throughout the story - from exquisite 1960s clothes, moments that feel like fashion magazine photographs, to the place where the movie's lead, portrayed by Colin Firth, lives.
The house in Glendale, LA, is called the Schaffer Residence and is almost like a movie character on its own. The Schaffer Residence, now in private hands, is a gem. It was built by architect John Lautner in 1949. The interaction of the wooden/metal structure with its surroundings is well-balanced and the interiors are both airy and intimate.
Wouldn't you want to walk through the house? Read a book in the living room? Or relax in the garden?
