LIVIN’ LARGE: Travolta’s Floridian Dream

Actor John Travolta has created his dream home in Florida based on his love of airplanes and that is apparent not just from the 2 private jets parked right outside his window (yes, his property includes a runway that goes right up to his house and can accommodate a 707 jet!) but also from details such as the overhead fans shown here. They remind me of propellers. Although the home is not to my tastes, I do think the feng shui from the photos I’ve seen is pretty well balanced. The 5 elements (water, wood, metal, fire, and earth) seem to be well represented and the curvature of the windows and some of the furnishings are a positive yin counterpart to the masculine yang angles. My feeling is that the living room sort of resembles a plush airport lounge(…ew!). But that is exactly what Mr. Travolta was aiming for, isn’t it? I wonder if his actress wife Kelly Preston is as happy with the design of the house as he is? The couple has been very active in the relief efforts in Haiti. Go to Architectural Digest* to view more pictures of this house and tell Feng Shui By Fishgirl if YOU could live here.
