When you think about classic, all-American interior design, chances are you think of the utterly dreamy interiors from films such as It’s Complicated (that kitchen!) or Something’s Gotta Give (that Hamptons house!) or perhaps you (like me) love the quintessentially English cottage from The Holiday. Those films were the work of filmmaker Nancy Meyers, who has garnered at least as many fans for her lovably flawed characters as her legendary room sets.
[contextly_sidebar id=”dH9T6apLy4FexCLo8dRk3PDDx0jA9CEZ”]Her latest work, The Intern, hits cinemas this week, and at first glance it’s clear the interiors are going to live up to fans’ expectations. Protagonist Jules (played by Anne Hathaway) runs an online fashion start-up and her young, energetic style is reflected in both her converted-factory office and her Brooklyn brownstone home, which she shares with her young family.
Even though the New York interiors in this film are worlds apart from the breezy Hamptons beach house in Something’s Gotta Give or the LA mansion and English cottage in The Holiday, they all share something special. So exactly how do you sum up this Nancy Meyers look? Well, it’s the same kind of layered, casual, glamorous-yet-effortless aesthetic which has made Pottery Barn a household name in the US and beyond. And now you too can achieve the look in your home thanks to Pottery Barn and its family of brands here in Australia: Pottery Barn Kids, Williams-Sonoma and west elm.
