Movie Magic

So we've all seen the movie "It's Complicated" with Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, and Steve Martin. I don't know about ya'll but I couldn't take my eyes off that fabulous house that belonged to Meryl's character, Jane. The sprawling Spanish style hacienda is about an hour south of Santa Barbara and showcases beautiful vaulted ceilings, a terracotta tile roof and who could forget that breathtaking kitchen! It was on the market this past spring for $12 million....a girl can dream right?! While it may not be in the budget for me, it doesn't hurt to peek around inside and picture myself whipping up French pastries with a soft breeze flowing through the veranda.

The interiors were shot on a soundstage in Brooklyn, NY. Elle Decor shows us how the movie version of the living room looked:

The "real house's" living room has similar beams and a window seat.

Now to my favorite part: the kitchen! Below we see Meryl cooking in her rustic style kitchen.

It's amazing what Hollywood can do! Here is the actual kitchen today.

This room wasn't shown in the movie but what a cozy sunroom to curl up with a hot cup of coffee and a magazine!

Hollywood opted for an amazing cutting garden in the yard but the real house has a gorgeous pool instead...not a bad trade off I think!
