I’ve been a little obsessed with all things Nancy Meyers. It’s an always-obsession, but during quarantine I’ve been watching my favorites on repeat it seems. The Parent Trap, The Intern, Something’s Gotta Give, Father of the Bride… etc. They’re just FEEL GOOD movies and even if you’re not in the mood to follow a plot, the visuals alone are something to indulge in. If I could move into any of the sets of her movies, I would without hesitation. Just gorgeous.
Part of the reason why I’d move into one of her sets is that mastering the style of her movies in actuality is not easy. (At least for me.) Her home sets, particularly those in the kitchen, have a perfectly curated, yet totally lived-in, feel. Flowers, bowls of fruits, cook books piled high. I love that they’re well-equipped for someone to make croissants by hand if she so chose, cozy enough for an early morning bowl of cereal and coffee, and elegant enough for a candlelit dinner party that bleeds into 2am.
Anyway, after having a Nancy Meyers marathon last weekend… I went on a mission to “Nancy Meyers” our kitchen a little bit more. (I feel like I have to say I know that I’m no interior-guru. I work with what I have, including skill!) Now… part of the problem is that our grocery deliveries are for essentials so adding hydrangeas to the order was a no-go. Mike cooks with so many lemons though so a bowl of fruit happens anyway.
PS Can’t recommend the playlist Nancy Meyers’ Kitchen on Spotify enough!! I jam to it all day long.
