My Favourite Movie Interiors: A Nancy Meyers Obsession

After watching The Holiday (my favourite Christmas movie) around this time last year, I found myself looking up photos of Kate Winslet’s beautiful Rosehill Cottage in the English countryside.

I soon stumbled upon an article about the film’s director, Nancy Meyers, and discovered that she’s directed several of my favourite Rom-coms –  The Parent Trap, Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated and most recently, The Intern. As soon as I made this connection, I realised that the one common thread between all of her films is the incredible interior design, which makes you fall in love not only with her characters, but also with their homes.

I could spend hours looking at photos of the sets of Nancy’s movies or stalking her Pinterest page, so I’ve decided to round up some photos of my three favourite Nancy Meyers homes – Rosehill Cottage from The Holiday; Meryl Streep’s house from It’s Complicated; and the Hamptons Beach House from Something’s Gotta Give.

Rosehill Cottage, The Holiday

I love everything about this ‘fairytale English cottage’, as it’s described in the movie, from the cosy furniture and soft lighting, to the old stone walls and wooden beams. Just looking at the photos makes me want to snuggle up by the fire with a good book.

Meryl Streep’s House, It’s Complicated

Unlike the small and charming Rosehill Cottage, Meryl Streep’s character in It’s Complicated lives in a sprawling Spanish-style ranch, with broad archways, a tiled roof and orange-toned interiors. The kitchen is by far my favourite room in the house, and it’s also the main focus of the film, with a beautiful marble countertop and low-hanging lampshades.

The Hamptons Beach House, Something’s Gotta Give

Diane Keaton’s stunning Hamptons beach house in Something’s Gotta Give is beautifully decorated in shades of soft blue and white. While I love every room, the master bedroom stands out as my favourite, strewn with soft and comfortable furniture, with large bay windows and a beautiful wooden writing desk.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this glimpse into the wonderful interiors of Nancy Meyer’s films. I’d love to know – what’s your favourite room out of all of her movies?
