I was straightening up the DVD drawer the other day, and came across my copy of
You've Got Mail
Love that movie!
Can watch it over and over. Not just because it's a super cute story, featuring a couple of my favorite actors - Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks - but virtually every scene is shot among the most beautiful furnishings. Meg's character, Kathleen Kelly, lives in the most adorable NYC apartment. One of my absolute favorites.
Even the book store, The Shop Around The Corner, her character owns in the movie is darling - even if it's interiors were fabricated on a sound stage.
Thinking of the gorgeous sets, scenery and surroundings in You've Got Mail got me thinking about other movie homes or "sets" I just love. I added in the word "sets" because, some of you may remember in a past post I did featuring the movie
It's Complicated, that through some research, I discovered much of Meryl's character, Jane Adler's home was filmed on fabricated sets, not in a real home. Although the decor's a bit less "shabby" than in You've Got Mail, I still find this style very appealing.
A few more favorite movie homes are from Something's Gotta Give, and especially Kate Winslet's character, Iris', home from The Holiday. As many of you may know, these two movies and It's Complicated were all directed by Nancy Meyers whose known to put much of her own decorative talents into the set designs of the productions she's involved with.
Something's Gotta Give
Nancy Meyers' Home
Definitely a reoccurring theme in what I find appealing when looking at all these stills. The sad thing is not one room in my house echoes any of these rooms. Well, maybe my living room a little . . . But not enough of my house to satisfy that "want".
What are some of your favorite movie homes?
