20 Fictional Homes You Wish You Could Live In

Where the HELL is my remote-controlled skylight/underwater pineapple/computerized outfit-coordinating closet?!

1. Arnold’s boarding house in Hey Arnold!

This guy recreated Arnold’s weirdly high-tech bedroom in 3D animating program Maya to look real.

With that rad stoop and green front door.

And odd-headed gaggle of friends and neighbors.

2. The house from Smart House

Smart House / Via

Pro: automated robot-mom who cooks and cleans for you no matter how outlandish the request. Con: may gain sentience and hold you emotionally hostage.

3. Cher’s mansion in Clueless

Clueless / Via

The columns date all the way back to 1972!!

(Most notably her bitchin’ high-tech closet)


4. The house on Archer Avenue in The Royal Tenenbaums

You can actually buy that zebra wallpaper.

Name ONE other bus with a swing,

Or a Lucite chess set.

Or a straight-up runway.

6. Clarissa’s place (specifically her incredible vehicularly inspired room) in Clarissa Explains It All.

Complete with a wide-open window for your vaguely creepy but lovable neighbor to crawl through.

7. Amélie’s Montmartre apartment.

Although every part of her life is pretty enviable.

8. The house from Up

OK yeah there are a *couple* drawbacks but IT’S SO DAMN CHARMING.

9. The Burrow, from Harry Potter

Because everyone could use a Weasley clock.

Way more efficient than Foursquare.

10. Jenny’s (and Georgette’s) mansion in Oliver and Company

Look me in the eye and tell me you don’t want a 30-foot portrait of yourself presiding over your living space.

11. Any one of these sick pads from Spongebob Squarepants

Depending if you dig quirkiness, intimidation, or minimalism.

The perk of having no parents is that you can do things like make hundreds of cookies on your kitchen floor and leave your horse on the porch.

17. Veronica Lodge’s mansion in the Archie comics

Betty and Veronica / Via

Would that we all had a Smithers to keep our many boyfriends at bay.

18. The treehouse from Swiss Family Robinson

The ultimate DIY.

19. The incredible converted firehouse in The Princess Diaries

Who would choose to be the princess of Genovia if you could slide down this every morning?

You’d never need to lift a finger again.
