It's Complicated, But During A Holiday, Something's Gotta Give

Maybe it's because I've just moved apartments for the 12th time in 12 consecutive years; or maybe it's the sheer number of hours I'd recently logged seeking the perfect furniture pieces that are, for once, not from a mass-produced, flat-packed design factory from Sweden.  Whatever the case, I've found myself hankering for those aesthetically pleasing and perfect home interiors that are normally found within the pages of Dwell and, oh let's just be honest here, in every single Nancy Meyers' movie since Father of the Bride.

Google Ms Meyers' name and you will discover more websites and blogs devoted to the interiors of her characters' homes than about the actual movies they're in.  Apparently, there are legions of obsessed fans out there who gawk at every built-in bookcase, sigh over the granite kitchen counters, hyperventilate at the sight of the dhurri rugs, contemplate each and every Kenton Nelson painting, and pine for those elegantly comfortable living room sets. Oh wait, that's me.

Here are some of my favourite "homes" from The Holiday, It's Complicated and (my absolute fantasy movie Hamptons beach house in) Something's Gotta Give
