Meyers Movie Home

It is starting to feel a lot like Christmas. Nancy Meyer is releasing a new movie this holiday season. You don't have to be a design aficionado to appreciate the homes in her movies such as Somethings Gotta Give and The Holiday. Traditional Home is show casing the newest set home in their December issue. I'll be looking forward to getting my issue in the mail. Meanwhile, I'll have to settle for a few images I've combed from the web.

The house is warm, a bit eclectic, traditional but with a few modern influences. I recognize some Lee and Oly furnishings mixed with antiques.

Large oval table in the dining room open to an inviting kitchen with open shelving, Carrara marble on the console and zinc pendants. Meyers designs gorgeous houses but they also feel real, not like showcases. I'd like to sit at this island with a glass of wine and catch up with old friends.

The master bath with claw foot tub.

And master bedroom. This cozy room may be my favorite. I like the fabric headboard and simple bedding and colorful throw, mismatched bedside tables one of which is a writing desk, and the addition of an antique dresser and mirror.
