A Nancy Meyers' movie is synonymous with great design. Many go to see her films just for the sets such as Something's Gotta Give or the English Cottage charm in The Holiday. Today, I picked up the new September issue of Traditional Home magazine, and I was thrilled to see an article by Cathy Whitlock giving us a sneak peak on the set of Ms. Meyers latest movie, The Intern, staring Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway. Ms. Meyers' design was influenced by the Brooklyn brownstone of J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons (love J.Crew).
"Her house had a hip, youthful vibe but was a traditional Brooklyn brownstone, so the juxtaposition was interesting. It was really so chic, and I felt it reflected Jule's world (Anne Hathaway's character) ."

Nancy Meyers' designs are always realistic and always on trend. Ms. Meyers gives this enviable kitchen a stylish spin, an elegant modern mix with a traditional center. The bistro shelves, white marble counters, Hampton blue cabinets and moldings around the windows add a current feel, while retaining the original fireplace and antique wood floors of this Brooklyn townhouse.

"Because Jules and her husband are a young couple, we tried to furnish their house on a budget - the budget they would have."

Mrs. Meyers filled the set with furnishings from local antique stores and catalog items: a Restoration Hardware reclaimed dining table, a Lindsey Adelman chandelier, and Josef Hoffmann dining chairs.

Nancy Meyers' Design Inspiration for Jule's home:
Jenna Lyon's former Brooklyn Townhouse, which by the way was sold and redesigned by the design firm of Roman and Williams.
