Many blog entries have been devoted to Nancy Meyers and her beautiful interiors for films. She's the writer and director behind movies such as "Something's Gotta Give" "The Holiday" and "It's Complicated," among others. Who wouldn't want the beach house from "Something's Gotta Give"?

I got to see a prescreening of the new Sex and the City movie Tuesday night with my friend Vallnez. The movie was comparable to an "okay" episode. I found the interiors much more interesting than whose marriage is on the rocks and even more interesting than (dare I say it?) the fashion. Perhaps it's just the design nerd in me,but I am very glad there are helpful articles and pictures online detailing the set design. If you find yourself missing the flea markety goodness of Carrie's old apartment (featured on the television program), you can still indulge here.
Since winter has decided to officially arrive (even though it unofficially arrived two days earlier with a foot of snow), it's a good time to stay in and cozy up with some movies.

Sure, I care about plot and character development and all that stuff; but what I really want to know is where did the set designer find that awesome lamp.
Tom Ford's new film A Single Man is getting a lot of buzz--and not just for the acting performances. This film (with some help from Mad Men) may bring back the conversation sofa. And not just to the Mid Century Modern hipsters who already found one on craigslist.
