Nancy Meyers pays an enormous amount of attention to set design. She’s known to put together folders of inspiration shots months before production starts, and uses Pinterest along with design blogs for inspiration. Not only can the director create films we love, she’s designed some of the most desirable onscreen houses. Let’s take a look at some of her best movie kitchens.
It’s Complicated: Known as Meyers’ second-most-famous kitchen, this kitchen is stunning from top to bottom. The black-rimmed windows and lights, hanging pots and pans, the island with barstools, the crisp white plates and cups. I just love it!
Home again: (Co-produced by Meyers and written and directed by her daughter, Hallie Meyers-Shyer) takes place in meticulously styled home. Tidbit – According to production designer Ellen J. Brill they covered the home’s dated tile with vinyl. “Blue and white always works,” she says. The countertops are also fake. “They were a bullnose countertop, so we placed contact paper on top to make it look like butcher block,” says Brill.
The Intern: Meyers used Pinterest to design The Intern set. She was heavily inspired by what she saw on design blogs about the current decorating scene in Brooklyn. A big influence was the Brooklyn brownstone of J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons
The Holiday: One of Meyers’ more modern clean spaces is Cameron Diaz’s kitchen in the Holiday.
The Holiday: Kate Winslet’s English cottage, this kitchen is both cozy and charming. With dishes lining the walls and the blue cabinets, Oh, and that farmhouse sink!
Something’s Gotta Give: The all-white kitchen has been called the most-copied kitchen of all time. This is the perfect beach house kitchen. The counters were painted to look like soapstone and they were also on casters to be moveable. The floors were faux painted to look like a glossy dark stained wood.
