Favorite Interiors from Romantic Comedies

Iconic movies are not always remembered for their plots and actors, but also by their set design. If you’re anything like me, the set design captures your attention just as much as the charismatic stars featured in them.

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite Romantic Comedies and the sets that make them so memorable!

One thought on “Favorite Interiors from Romantic Comedies

  1. Mona says:

    How creative to show what a “shabby chic” design or “traditional coastal” design might actually look to a lay person!..So unique to show examples of these design forms by relating them to such iconic and loved movies. It really helps to see how these designs actually could work in your own home and lifestyle to visually be able to see how it works in these great movies. Very enjoyable to reminisce and enjoy the designs as well.
