Stunning Set Designs

Nancy Meyers.
For those of you who love her films, you probably also love the houses her characters live in. Like so many of you, I walk away from each of her films wanting to live the life of her main characters mainly because, who wouldn't want to live in a breathtaking Hamptons Beach Home (Something's Gotta Give) or a charming cottage in Suri, England (The Holiday). For me, it all began with Father of The Bride. As a young girl, I would pause and rewind the first scene in the movie over and over again. Steve Martin drives his convertable down a gorgeous street, surrounded by beautiful green trees until he makes his way home. For many years, this was my dream home:

But then I saw 'Something's Gotta Give' and inevitably had a new 'dream home' (or shall I say, 'dream beach house')

Diane Keaton's Beach House 'Something's Gotta Give'

Below, are other set designs created by Jon Hutman, for Nancy Meyers' films:

Cameron Diaz's Mansion in 'The Holiday'

Kate Winslet's charming cottage in 'The Holiday'

Meryl Streep's Home in 'Its Complicated'

Jon Hutman is one of Hollywoods most saught-after set designers. Hutman's interiors can be seen in many of todays films, including 'Its Complicated', 'The Holiday', 'Something's Gotta Give', 'What Women Want' 'The Time Traveller's Wife' and 'My Sister's Keeper'.
