Sean Adams and his Technicolor Dreamhouse are featured in the LA Times article “Colorful translation of a 1927 classic.” Adams reveals his decorating influences: Disneyland, Frida Kahlo, Mexican architect Luis Barragan and…The Parent Trap?
In the 1961 kid flick “The Parent Trap,” the dad of the separated twins lives in an adobe ranch house furnished with an armless sectional sofa and streamlined checkered chairs. The look is “pretty darn cool,” says Adams, 42, who saw the original version of the Disney film when he was young and bought a copy to study it when he moved into this house four years ago.
