Santa Barbara Style

So, last weekend on Valentine’s Day, I was enjoying my annual chick flick marathon and I stumbled on the movie “It’s Complicated” with Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep.  It takes place in Santa Barbara and I found myself swooning of the interiors in the film.  There is something so effortlessly chic about the way they live in Santa Barbara.  It looks casual, yet elegant.  You could probably spend thousands and thousands of dollars trying to create the effortless “undecorated” look the interiors below achieve.

Here is a shot of one some of the rooms from the movie.

It's Complicated House 2

It's Complicated House


Santa Barbara is such a relaxed coastal town, I love how you can live outdoors 365 days a year, and am so fond of the elegant patios and pools that are so simply styled.

It turns out, that the set designer for It’s Complicated has also designed many of the houses in some of my other favorite movies.  She was the set designer for Somethings Gotta Give and Father of the Bride. Now I would take any of these homes any day of the year!
Do you have a favorite movie house?  If so, do tell in the comments, so I don’t feel like the lone dork who thinks of this stuff while I watch movies!
Have a great Monday!
