Forget lacrosse or cheerleading, the malevolent teenagers of Cruel Intentions were only interested in the real blood sports.
When taking time off from plotting the demise of her fellow classmates, Kathryn Merteuil retired to her posh, jewel-toned pad on the Upper West Side. It’s here that she did the bulk of her scheming and seducing, and her gilded decor was certainly worthy of a war room in the making. Though she ultimately got “what was coming to her” in the form of a very public drug paraphernalia shaming (seriously, rent the movie), Kathryn’s personal style and devilishly fashionable lair made her the envy of an entire generation of teen girls.
Featuring the timeless heroine of mid '90s cinema herself, Ms. Sarah Michelle Gellar, this period piece featured a decadent mix of gold and silver tones, vintage and modern pieces, high-end candles, heaps of luxe bedding, and more than a few nods to the film’s original source material, Les Liaisons Dangereuses. Make no mistake, Kathryn’s over-the-top tangle of a room was meant to ensnare you.
