These images–dimly lit and murky (click on them to view larger)–from the movie Tron: Legacy depict the home of the film’s main character: Sam, son of Tron’s lead, Jeff Bridges. According to production designer Darren Gilford, “Sam has clearly been shaped by the mysterious unanswered absence of his famous computer-genius father and chooses a renegade ‘off-the-grid’ existence,” Gilford said. ”The vibe was meant to be the ultimate man cave where Sam could park his Ducati next to his sofa.”
Ultimate man cave: check. Ducati next to sofa: check. And there’s also a throwback vibe coming from the slouchy leather chairs plus some pretty awesome touches provided by the pair of lamps and that fireplace. I could polish this place up and make it livable in no time…

Looking at a designer’s portfolio tends to lead to my learning more about my own tastes. Such is the case with Greg Natale, an Australian designer recently profiled on The Design Files, who has an exuberant glamorous style in the residential interiors shown on his website. Within those over-the-top (to my eye) designs, I found a few cleaner, quieter spaces that are much more my style, shown above. It’s these rooms, with their combinations of neutrals and warm accents, modern lines and smart editing, that draw me in.
