James Radin’s Beautiful Homes

March 30, 2010 at 8:18 AM 6 comments

Do you remember the movie, “Something’s Gotta Give”? Have you seen “It’s Complicated?” They are two of my favorite movies and I’m pretty sure it’s because I love the design of the houses in the movies. Well, the director: Nancy Meyers sure knows how to pick set designers. She used James Radin’s expertise for both of the movies as well as for her own home. Let’s peer inside Nancy Meyers’ house.

This is the kitchen that inspired the kitchen in “Something’s Gotta Give”

In an interview with House Beautiful, James Radin expressed his style as being, “Traditional, in a light way. I like interiors to be calm, restful — that’s what underscores my work. I think that’s what people responded to in the movie. You can imagine yourself in those rooms — you want to be there. That’s a lot of the appeal, just being pretty.” That rings true with me.

Now for the movies….”Somethings Gotta Give” – Diane Keaton’s Hampton’s Home:

And here is the set for Meryl Streep’s Santa Barbara home in “It’s Complicated”

If you haven’t seen the movies, I suggest that you watch them; the movies have much more to them then pretty houses.

    A bunch of reviews for It’s Complicated mentioned how these two movies are ‘lifestyle porn’ – totally true! Great post.
