‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s,’ the classic romantic comedy starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard is one of my all-time favorite Classics.

Holly Golightly, the main character of Truman Capote’s novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s was probably the most vulnerable character that Audrey Hepburn has ever played. The character development of both George and Holly in the film was flawless. It’s the ultimate rom-com!

I also love the wardrobe (great fashion styling too) and the sets were fabulous!

Holly Golightly’s apartment was one of the chicest and most memorable sets ever:

The interior shots for the movie were filmed on a sound stage in Hollywood but the exterior shots that illustrated the movie adaptation of Truman Capote’s classic were made quintessentially New York swanky, with shots of Tiffany’s and of the brownstone at 169, 71st St.

If I had $8M to spare, I’d totally buy Holly Golightly’s brownstone!

Who wouldn’t want to step into Holly Golightly’s shoes? If you’ve got $8 million, you can: The Upper East Side brownstone that moonlighted as her home in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is for sale, and a quick peek inside explains why this home is such a star. Granted, the movie’s interiors were filmed on a soundstage, but you’ll have no trouble feeling chic in the four-bedroom, 3,800-square-foot home, which features high ceilings, grandiose, wood-burning fireplaces, and a solarium.

The apartment was last listed three years ago for $5.85 million. Since then, it’s been converted into a four-floor, single-family home with spacious, sunlit interiors. The home is located in a landmarked district of NYC’s Upper East Side, and even without the green-and-white striped awnings featured in the movie, it’s still pretty epic.
