Providing a heart-racing read to say the least, the 50 shades of Grey trilogy by E. L. James has sold over a 100 million copies worldwide. Besides venturing into the grey lustful world of Christian Grey, the author also delves deep into details of his high-flying lifestyle. Though the movie will not be showcased in the UAE, we couldn't resist sharing with you our visions of the high-flying billionaire's penthouse paradise:
We imagine the mirrored elevator that Christian takes the protagonist Anastasia Steele when she first visits his apartment could be likened to the Index Tower. Although it misses a helipad for his beloved Charlie Tango, we think its location in the heart of the financial district, sleek lines and sustainable architecture would definitely appeal to our rule-loving, mercurial Christian.
The image that the author draws on Christian's lifestyle reeks of minimalist, luxury contemporary design. The penthouse is staged in black and white, with tasteful, ultra-luxe interiors and formidable pieces of art. As Anastasia (also known as Ana) enters the floor, she encounters an all-white foyer buzzing with paintings before she enters through double doors to a palatial living room with double height windows with vistas of Seattle. (Or Downtown Dubai in this case.)
