The “Something has Gotta Give” house is definitely at the top of my dream home list! Ahhh…just gorgeous! I’ve also always loved the “Father of the Bride” home and Meg Ryan’s apartment in “You’ve Got Mail.”

Yummy spaces, indeed!

I guessed Marley & Me, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Sex and the City right from looking at the pictures. From the clue, I guessed Parent Trap but I didn’t recognize the house at all.
I really loved Andrew’s family’s house in The Proposal. It is my #1 favourite house of 2009. I really liked the vampires’ house in Twilight and New Moon.

Kim January 3, 2010 at 9:44 pm

I got 6 out of 10. I loved all of these movie houses, but one of my favorites, that didn’t make the list, is The Home Alone 1&2 house.

Lesley @ TheDesignFile January 3, 2010 at 9:52 pm

These are really cool for me because I never seem to notice that much about the houses when I’m watching the movies. So I love that you break it down so I can really see it.

I love seeing the apartment from You’ve Got Mail. I had noticed that sweet little place and it was fun to look at it again.

Also, I’ve never seen Mr & Mrs Smith…what a house! In particular, I’m nuts about the lighting!

Thanks for posting these and I look forward to what you’ll have in 2010.

While I am NOT a beachy person, I’m crazy for the house from Something’s Gotta Give. But then again, who wouldn’t wanna cuddle up with Noah on that porch on a warm summer night? Mmmmmm. Pancakes and baconnnnn.

Did you hear the Rodanthe house sold? I saw an AP story that it was set to close early this month. I’m in NC and I saw it under our local news section.

Deborah January 4, 2010 at 8:11 am

Something’s Gotta Give is always my favorite. I just saw It’s Complicated and know that will be a future movie Monday for you. It was written and directed by the same person as Something’s Gotta Give. I had a feeling since there was a similar feel to the movie. Since reading your blog, I notice houses in movies alot more. Thanks and I really enjoy your blog.

You’re so sweet, Nancy!

Those quilted patterns show up when someone doesn’t have a photo/avatar. I chose them instead of that shadowy, faceless guy that other blogs use. Just thought they were pretty! (It’s a Wordpress option.) -Julia

debbie January 4, 2010 at 7:47 pm

My favorite is still Meg Ryan’s apartment in You’ve Got Mail, followed by Kate Winslet’s cottage in The Holiday and then the beach house in Somthing’s Gotta Give. Looking forward to this year’s movie houses. Happy New Year Julia!

Ann January 5, 2010 at 7:28 am

I loved Amanda’s house in The Holiday! YUM! I also thought the apartment in Just Like Heaven was great.

Sarah January 5, 2010 at 12:19 pm

This is my favorite part of your web site. I’m sure it takes a lot of time and it is much appreciated from me! Sometimes I watch movies just for the background, I’m sure you are one person that can relate. Will you be doing a post on “It’s Complicated”? I cannot wait see it on your blog!

Jen H. January 5, 2010 at 5:08 pm

I loved the interiors in The Proposal. The entire movie was gorgeous – the actors, the set designs, the scenery. Looking even more forward to seeing It’s Complicated now! My all-time faves are probably The Holiday (both houses) and Something’s Gotta Give, though I’m starting to tire of that one since it’s just everywhere.

Laura December 1, 2010 at 2:17 pm

I agree Amanda’s house from the Holiday should have made it on the list.

Home January 28, 2010 at 3:07 am

Nice top ten list! Number 2 is nice for me 😉

Susan March 3, 2010 at 10:39 pm

Have a look at both kitchens in Funny People…(Adam Sandler and Lesley Mann kitchen…) both great. Would love to see them featuerd.

Thank you so much for this site! I loved the Ranch House in “Brokeback Mountain” where Jack’s parents lived. It’s classic and I would love to know about it.

Kathy May 11, 2010 at 10:57 am

I know it’s an older movie, but my favorite movie house remains the one from Practical Magic! LOVE the kitchen!

Laura December 1, 2010 at 2:15 pm

I love the something’s gotta give house! But I was wondering if you have seen the house in “The Holiday”. Amanda’s house was fabulous in it.

hookedonhouses December 1, 2010 at 3:44 pm

Yes, in fact I have a post about Amanda’s house coming up this month. Thanks, Laura! -Julia
