This comedy favorite, in which two lovelorn women (Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet) swap homes for two weeks, was filmed on location in San Marino, California, and the English countryside. The Mediterranean-influenced L.A. mansion is spacious enough for an exercise room, living room (decorated in white and chocolate brown), media room (chock full of DVDs, since it was the early aughts), office, and main bedroom suite. And although the quaint cottage looks plucked from a storybook, it was built from scratch in Shere, England, in four weeks. Yes, even the landscaping and gardening was the work of a production team.
It’s Complicated (2009)
It’s still unclear as to why bakery shop owner Jane Adler (Meryl Streep) wanted to remodel her gorgeous home in Santa Barbara, California. After all, she lives in a 1920s Spanish-style ranch with a terra-cotta roof and stone walkway. Her cozy living room features soft linens and wood accents. And that kitchen? An easy-to-entertain area with curved-arm dining chairs, hanging lamps, marble-top counter and open shelves. By the way, her small appliances and cookware were sourced from Le Creuset, All-Clad, Cuisinart, and KitchenAid.
