We're going to tread VERY carefully with this particular post, judging from the sheer amount of uh...disgruntled emails that we--OK, I--received after this post. Despite our opinion of the books (ranking alongside other notable literary gems like Sweet Valley High or anything branded with V.C. Andrews), we got suckered by a conniving Twihard who sent us these photos of the Cullen house from the upcoming Twilight movie. Even if you have no idea about sparkling vampires or unfortunate baby names, this house is truly stunning for fans of the modern aesthetic. Take a look at some of the exterior and interior shots after the jump...Since we've only read the first book, we conferred with our 14-year-old Twilight expert, Maggie, to confirm whether or not the house lives up to the book (Verdict: it does). Also, we have learned a very important lesson: Don't piss off the Twihards, they are an extremely rabid enthusiastic fan base.
The Exterior of the Cullen home, complete with the infamous Volvo parked in the driveway.
Detail shot of the entry and the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Stairwell, Bathroom, and Living Room. In the books, the Cullen home is always described as being very...beige. And having huge glass windows with a neat-o panic room feature that has metal shutters in case a hostile vampire is lurking about.
Based on the amount of times that Maggie has forced us to watch the trailer, we're guessing this is where they set Edward's room with the French doors leading outside.
Open space kitchen / dining. Loving the black accent wall--it's a bit unexpected in such an airy looking home.
