movie set design: bachelor pads in this means war

By: Elaine Song
One particularly lazy night last weekend I happened to watch This Means War, a film that proves the age-old love triangle plot still lives on. But when you have Chris Pine and Tom Hardy playing two CIA operatives and best friends, who can complain? Cue Reese Witherspoon, who both gentlemen unknowingly meet and fall for, and let the competition begin! Plot, acting abilities and dreamy blue eyes aside, what truly caught my eye were the mens’ stylish bachelor pads. Both apartments embrace qualities of masculine design, but in very different ways. While both use darker, moody colour palettes, one is an industrial loft with architectural features like exposed pipes and concrete. The other, however, is much more sleek and polished with low and streamlined furnishings.   If I had to choose, I would take the loft, but mostly because the mix of lighting designs (hello, Poul Henningsen Artichoke lamp!) and gallery wall (and I mean a legitimate full wall) caught my eye first. I do love the oversized artwork in the sleek condo, but that ceiling pool is a bit of a real estate deterrent for me. I’ll let a bachelor enjoy that one.     Which bachelor pad do YOU prefer?   {All images are screenshot from the movie's trailer and extended trailer from 20th Century Fox}
