We went to see the movie “It’s Complicated” a few days ago…my husband and I, and we enjoyed it. There were a lot of laughs, and I have to warn you there was a lot of middle age nakedness (strategically covered with sheets and other various objects) which made for some of the funnier scenes. And there was a lot of drooling. The drooling was done by me and it was NOT over the ever beefy Alec Baldwin! No, I was drooling over the set designs. I wanted to cook in the Kitchen in Meryl Streep’s house, shop and eat in the Bakery/Restaurant that she owned, and pick vegetables in her garden.
Charming and quaint…
. Bright and cheerful…
I wanted to move in.
The whole feel of the house was warm, comfortable, and lived in.
In the movie Steve Martin plays the architect who is helping her design a new kitchen. The whole movie I was thinking “WHY”? Keep what you have!
And then there was her Bakery/Restaurant. What a great space this is.
Coffee and pastry bar…
I want to shop here.
Mmmm….warm, chocolate croissants and coffee.
And then there was her vegetable garden. I am sure it was “organic”. My husband and I just looked at each other during the movie and said “yeah, right.” Let’s just say it did not resemble our little garden in any shape or form. It was one of the most perfect and picturesque vegetable gardens I have ever seen. Perfect cabbages and and towers tomatoes and ripe, red peppers. But that is why we go to the movies…to enjoy the fantasy.
If you want to see more great photos of the set used in the film, stop by Traditional Home Magazine’s website and have a look. The rest of the house in the film was not too shabby either. It had that Spanish Hacienda Ranch thing going on. So California. It was a cute movie…kind of light and fluffy but entertaining just the same.
