The Shining is one of the best horror movies ever made. Period.
Suffering from the flu I was watching the movie again the other day. My feeble state didn't allow me to follow the story too closely, so instead I was just looking at the amazing interiors of the Overloook Hotel.
Did you know that the Gold Room in the movie is supposed to be a replica of a ball room at the the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona? A Frank Lloyd Wright building.
I checked out their website and sadly I didn't see any resemblance to Jack's spooky hangout. But of course, Frank Lloyd Wright and everything, it was a very elegant room.
The amazing red toilet is also supposed to be from the Biltmore Hotel, but I haven't been able to verify it.
The Colorado Lounge was modeled very closely after the lounge at the Awhanee Hotel in Yosemite National Park in California. I don't need to show a picture, they are identical.
I don't know where the green bathroom is from, but I know one thing: I want one of those, please! (Only if the old woman would leave the tub before I move in, thank you very much).
Finally, but not least: The hallway carpet. Oh dear me!
