Breaking Down the Nancy Meyers Movie Style

Slipcovered Furniture

Step into the Nancy Meyers wonderland where slipcovered furniture reigns supreme. Think white slipcovered sofas and armchairs that scream, "Come, sit, relax." These pieces are the epitome of casual elegance and versatility – easy on maintenance and heavy on style.

Wicker and Natural Materials

Next up, let's weave in some texture. Wicker furniture, rattan, and other natural materials are the MVPs of Meyers’ interiors. They add a homespun warmth, a textured embrace that says, "You’re home." In "Something's Gotta Give," wicker armchairs and baskets pepper the living spaces, infusing that inimitable seaside vibe.

 Neutral Color Palette

Dive into Meyers' palette of dreams – soft creams, pristine whites, gentle grays, and the calmest of blues. These neutral hues create a serene backdrop, a canvas for other elements to shine. It’s understated elegance with a hint of coastal cool.


 Layered Textiles and Patterns

The devil's in the details, and Nancy Meyers knows it well. Layered textiles – think plush throw blankets, patterned cushions, and sumptuous area rugs – craft a cozy and welcoming ambiance. "The Holiday" nailed this with its snug English cottage, embracing us in a visual hug of patterns and textures.

Classic and Timeless Furniture

To anchor your space, call upon classic, timeless furniture. From sturdy coffee tables to elegant dining chairs, these are the pieces that carry the weight of time with grace. In "It's Complicated," Meryl Streep's kitchen, with its magnificent farmhouse table, becomes the heartbeat of the home.


Bookcases and Built-ins

Add character with built-in bookcases and shelves brimming with books, artwork, and cherished mementos. Meyers' sets overflow with this touch of lived-in charm. Take a leaf out of "The Intern," where the home office becomes a sanctuary of personal stories told through decor.

Elegant Lighting Fixtures

Last but not least, let’s talk lighting. Elegant lighting fixtures – chandeliers, pendant lights, table lamps – provide not just illumination, but pure style. "Something's Gotta Give" showcases a dining area where a stunning chandelier bathes the room in sophisticated light.
