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 – 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.
GRACE & FRANKIE
GRACE & FRANKIE – Streaming on Netflix, Starring Jane Fonda (Grace) and Lily Tomlin (Frankie). Set decorator: Beauchamp Fontaine
THE CHANGE UP
Starring my favorite actors: Leslie Mann, Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman! The Change Up is hilarious.
