We Know You Want to Live In a Nancy Meyers Movie, Too.
When you think of Nancy Meyers movies, yes, you think about the lighthearted, feel good plot lines. But if you’re even remotely interested in interiors, you find yourself obsessing over the decor. The idyllic Hamptons beach house in Something’s Gotta Give, the charming English cottage in The Holiday, and the quintessential Santa Barbara abode in It’s Complicated (just to name a few).
Why have the interiors of Nancy Meyers movies generated a veritable cult following, and noteworthy enough that we are writing a post about them? A few theories:
They are approachable: nothing is too stuffy, cold, or editorial. Even though the settings widely vary (from Meg Ryan’s cozy Upper West Side apartment in You’ve Got Mail to Dennis Quaid’s sprawling Napa vineyard in Parent Trap), Meyers creates spaces that feel lived in and loved.
They perfectly complement their corresponding character: the homes in each film act as true representations of their on screen residents. Meryl Streep’s Santa Barbara Mediterranean ranch is largely open concept, embodying her love of familiar gatherings around the heart of the home, the kitchen (perfectly suited for a restaurant owner).
They are timeless: believe it or not, Parent Trap is 20 years old, and Something’s Gotta Give is 15 years old. However, the interiors are just as captivating today as they were when the films first debuted.
