From art and jewelry, to wellness spaces, to bold colors, here’s what’s in vogue.
While a trip to the cinema is a rewarding experience, curling up to watch a film in the privacy of your own home is a special luxury—especially when you can take the movies outdoors. Setting is a crucial part of any film and residence: where we live shapes our own story, and sets the stage for a narrative to unfold. Whether settling in to watch a Hollywood classic or screening a modern blockbuster for maximum family fun, here are five luxury homes all set for outdoor movie nights.
While this modern home nestled among the treetops would make an incredible setting for a cinematic masterpiece, it also has its own superb enclosed outdoor space that’s perfect for orchestrating movie screenings. The 3,200-foot westward-facing elevation provides even more prime entertainment in the way of spectacular sunsets. Natural light fills the home to illuminate award-winning modern design and amenities, including a custom sycamore mantle, contemporary kitchen with Bosch appliances, and the aforementioned secluded outdoor living space complete with hot tub, sunset bar, and grill.
When there’s a sensational ocean view and balmy climate to enjoy, outdoor living spaces are high on the must-have list. Such is the case for Villa Vente del Mar, a modern four-bedroom retreat set into the Mediterranean forest on the Northern Adriatic coast, with sweeping vistas and plenty of outdoor amenities. Enjoy the home’s swimming pool, jacuzzi, gym, mini-golf range, or games area, and in the evening, after dining on the spacious outdoor terrace, put on a film with surround sound for extra effect.
The glittering views from this 5,025-square-foot Dallas penthouse atop the Azure highrise condominium are dramatic enough for the big screen. Combined with the private rooftop terrace featuring a pool, cabana bar, and glass-walled lounge area with a convenient movie screen, there’s no shortage of entertainment options for day or night. Inside, generous 11- to 14-foot ceilings, a gourmet kitchen, and spacious bedroom suites make this property ideal for both indoor and outdoor living.
Bright, light, and airy—this new five-bedroom modern farmhouse exudes laidback elegance. With beautiful craftsmanship and natural finishes throughout, an ocean-facing main bedroom complemented by a spa-like bathroom, and living and dining areas that flow seamlessly to the outdoors for exceptional views that encompass Catalina Island, this is Southern Californian living at its finest. After soaking up sunny days, gather around the free-standing fireplace and put up a screen to project a movie under the stars.
Looking for la vie en rose? Head to Spain for this 15,069-square-foot, six-bedroom home in Barcelona City. Located in Pedralbes—an area notable for its international schools, ample green space, and sports and leisure venues—the property exudes luxury at every turn, from Gaggenau appliances in the kitchen to the magnificent French-style garden to the Verona marble details. Though you could take advantage of the movie projector indoors, the terrace, outfitted with sofas, a dining area, and kitchenette, surely calls for outdoor screenings on warm nights.
If spending more quality time outdoors is a priority, these five stunning homes present prime opportunities for nighttime cinema. Whether equipped with an outdoor screen or providing the perfect canvas for setting up a projector, these properties make the case for getting lost in a movie and enjoying the evening air at home.
