Hollywood Movie Director's "Outlandish" London Home For Rent - Take The Tour

If you haven’t heard of Roland Emmerich, you will almost certainly have heard of some of his movies. Emmerich is the 62-year old German who directed Universal Soldier (1992), Independence Day (1996), Godzilla (1998), The Day After Tomorrow (2004), White House Down (2013) and Independence Day: Resurgence (2016). He is the 11-th highest grossing director in history. Besides directing, Emmerich also produced and wrote most of his movies. Emmerich owns homes in Los Angeles, New York, London and Stuttgart. As Wikipedia notes.

He likes to decorate his homes in a self-described "outlandish" manner, adorning them with rare Hollywood memorabilia, murals and portraits of dictators and Communist figures, and World War II militaria.



Emmerich’s London home is currently available for rent – anything from a few days to six months. As The Guardian newspaper notes,

the house is filled with communist iconography, taxidermy and potentially outrageous art. The property’s interior designer John Teall says:

 

“Nothing is spared, from government and gender to race and religion – but there’s no manifesto. The idea was to provoke thought, amuse and maybe shock a little.”

If you’d like to take the tour, let’s go. Here is the outside on Brompton Square In London’s Chelsea.



Walk past the stuffed zebra towards the living room…lots of natural light.



Murals of Chairman Mao and Lenin add to the relaxed atmosphere.



Before we go upstairs, check out the waxwork of Pope John Paul II reading his own obituaries.



Fancy a shower, share the cubicle with another infamous dictator.



Let’s get cerebral…the office is covered with equations inspired by the movie “A Beautiful Mind”. The desk is constructed from the wing of a second World War plane.



Watch a movie in the low-key cinema room.



When you’re ready to retire to bed, close your eyes under the bed cover made from 70 pairs of army underwear.



If you’re a big fan of the British royal family, you’ll love this guest bedroom.



If we had to be a guest of Robert Emmerich, or one of his prospective tenants. we’d choose this one.



If you’re tempted, the weekly rent is £7,525 ($10,000). Please contact the agents, Kinleigh Folkard & Howard.

Living only a couple of streets away, I have seen a couple of those objects in a local shop, the WWII wing / desk and zebra. Seems to me he just went out one afternoon and bought a few things locally. Not such a ‘great collector’. Besides, compared to most houses around here, it is quite conservative and not outlandishly furnished or decorated at all. Also, the house is in Knightsbridge, not Chelsea.

Downright bizarre. Very bad taste on products and most details. The office is interesting. He comes across very immature, in my opinion.

The problem is not my wisdom or a lack of it. The problem arises from biases which conservatives are much better at it than liberals. Why conservatives are more biased? Because conservatives are more ideological, especially as a group, and conservatives believes, which make them as stubborn as one can be.

 LOL, you should try posting on liberal sites as a conservative.  Everyone's got an easier time swimming in the same school of thought.It's a bit odd to claim interacting with activist conservatives on a political site means "conservatives are more ideological".  Isn't that perhaps a bit of data bais?I can see that in my personal life, the only ones forceing their ideas on my are Liberals.  If I disagree with them I am racist, fascist, Nazi, whatever, and they want me to lose my job, family, home and life.  Or some combination thereof.  I find conservatives "in the wild" to be much less judgmental.  Liberals are like ISIS, they want to impose their religion ("secular humanism") throughout the entire planet, by force is just fine.  You don't have a "democracy"?  Death to you!  You don't let gays marry?  Sanctions!  How many conservatives are arguing to sanction or bomb countries that deny the liberty to carry firearms?

Because conservatives are more ideological... Surely you jest. Having grown up in the liberal petri dish called Chicago and having seen how Democrats/liberals/progressives operate, I can tell you that NO-fucking-body is more ideologically driven, more humorless (can NEVER, EVER, laugh at themselves), more childish, and historically uninformed in their opinions than Democrats/liberals/progressives.  Nevertheless, I upvoted you for the one sane thing you wrote previously.

Can I rent it and paint of mural of Bill Clinton raping women through-out his political career?And one of Hillary calling them sluts and hos?Too soon?

Actually, that has already been done, discretely and [conservatively], by Nelson Shanks, one of the greatest presidential portrait artists of modern times. If you look through a wide range of his paintings, not just the more formal ones of famous people, you will see that he rivals Sargent in real skill and boldness. There are not many painters with that degree of technical skill who are also great colorists.

His flat is just like his movies - absolutely awful, with no sense of aesthetics whatsoever.  I mean, who wants to live in a house with wax figures?  That's incredibly creepy.

I care. Some people make little museums out of their homes. Why is it interesting when everything looks the same, brought to you by the team of designers at Rooms to Go on the low end of the affordability scale or Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware at the upper middle? Most people cannot afford to blow money on original art, so it is interesting to see it assembled by the few who can and the few who care. There are not many who care, even among those who can afford it.

He has obviously been out of Germany too long. A real Swabian wouldn't be this ridiculous. Time to come home to Ludwigsburg pal! ;-)

when the roman empire was crumbling, the leaders distracted the citizens with cookoffs and entertainments and shit like this article  so they would not notice that the ship is sinking.Who cares about this cocksucker.
