This place makes watching your favorite movies and television shows feel like an escape from reality, thanks to ample seating and a deluxe sound system. But a screening room doesn’t have to feel like a dark cave—the ones in the homes featured here, from Ralph Lauren’s residence in Colorado to George Clooney’s Mexican villa, are decorated just as thoughtfully as any other room in the house.
Think oversize sectionals and luxe leather chairs, elegant oak paneling and walls of windows, or even a fireplace. Pillows, blankets, artworks, and lamps provide an extra layer of coziness and a welcome dose of personality. So grab the popcorn and settle in. The best part: When the credits roll, you’re just steps from bed.
