Rich Girl is an American romantic drama centered around Claudine, a poor little rich girl from Manhattan who is tired of living off her family's affluent name. She rebels against her mother, Eve, a financial guru, and is engaged to a theatre director named Henry. What starts as an electric romance spirals into conflict as Henry's intentions are unsure if he genuinely loves her or is in it for the money.
After designing multiple period productions, creating something modern was a lot of fun. This Manhattan Penthouse was modeled after a real estate guide I found online, and I was focused on the contemporary and sleek. I added the faux palm tree in the living room to show Eve's exotic taste and replaced it with a seasonal tree for Christmas.
