Interior Design from the movie Nine Lives

The Nine Lives of Interior Design

In ALL, INTERIOR DESIGN, MOVIES, WRITING EXERCISES by Stephanie Klein3 Comments

Just as fashion was almost its own character in Sex and the City, set design is its own story. Be it binge-worthy Netflix series, movies, or traditional TV shows, the set design can pull you in as much as the story itself. Imagine how much backstory can fill a room, from souvenirs to which cookbooks would line kitchen shelves. Anything Nancy Meyers touches is Pinterest-worthy, even back to Father of the Bride and Baby Boom. The Intern. It’s Complicated. Something’s Gotta Give. But here are a handful of my other interior story favorites (beyond Nancy Meyers). What are your favorites? Go. #WritingWednesday prompt below…

NINE LIVES

NINE LIVES – Streaming Free with Amazon Prime (30-Day Free Trial)
Starring Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Garner, and Malina Weissman (also a power role model for girls in Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events). Notice the way the dining room chairs change in the “flashback stairs scene,” to show that the decor has evolved over the years? Production Design by Michael Wylie, Set Decoration by Maya Jarvis, Assistant Decorator Stéphane Dufour.

  1. All of those interiors are gorgeous, especially Nine Lives which I seriously need to check out. My all-time favorite backdrop for a tv series would be Monica’s apartment on Friends. After my parents divorced and my dad moved into a “single dad apartment,” my sister and I took it upon ourselves to try to replicate the purple walls and doors. Not a great idea!

  2. MEET JOE BLACK. So much eye candy on interiors.
    THOMAS CROWNE AFFAIR.
    EYES WIDE SHUT.
    NANNY DIARIES.

    Need to check out Nine Lives and Grace & Frankie now!
