It's Complicated - Set Design

Posted December 31, 2009 by Christina

So I am a big fan of Nancy Meyers' movies. Something's gotta give was a great movie- however my real love comes in the movie sets!! It's Complicated set design is a combination of talent from Jon Hutman and Beth Rubino. Something's gotta give and The Holiday were both designed with the help of , who is currently helping Meyers design her own home. What an amazing talent. I have yet to see the movie (I am hoping to sneak out to it tomorrow) but from what I have seen and heard it is pretty great. Too bad they don't show you the new kitchen- that would have been fun too, but I guess the movie is really about the relationships.. hum.

Another great little story I found about the film and the set design is on very fun to see your hard work paying off in a major way! Congratulations!

From what I have heard the bakery that she owns in the film is more than perfect!! The bakery unfortunately is a fictional character as well. It was designed around the idea of several different places "London’s Daylesford Organic to New York’s City Bakery and Dean & Deluca, among others." (Quote from Traditional Homes Magazine article.)

Love the little table with bath goodies..

Even the garden is amazing. hum- I am moving in thanks!

**Update: I saw the movie and I must say I may need to see it again as I was trying to soak up all of the sets and pieces within**
