I rarely go to the movie theater. I am blessed with a mother who takes my boys to all the new kid movies. That poor woman has sat through every animated film you can imagine. The boys love it and I get a few precious hours to regroup. Brady prefers to watch movies at home and I really don’t mind that. Nancy Meyers films are the exception for me. I want to see those movies right away and on a big screen so I can fully submerse myself in the beautiful set design, timeless fashion, complicated women, and big romance. I want to sit there in a cashmere sweater and pearls with a bag of popcorn and a cherry coke and ignore real life for a while.
Remember the Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin movie It’s Complicated? I love that one. I adore Meryl and I loved her character. The kitchen was pretty great too. We can’t all live like the characters in a Nancy Meyers film, but we can recreate some of the spaces in their homes. Here’s a start.
