Admittedly, this is a cheat. While Nancy Meyers was a producer of Home Again, her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer directed it. But it’s evident she took a page out of her mother’s book. Reese Witherspoon plays an interior designer in the movie, so her Spanish-style home needed to have impeccable interiors. The white kitchen with a blue patterned tile backsplash, spacious living room with large windows, and guest house that’s crucial to the story all make it an enviable property.

The yellow house Diane Keaton’s character buys in Vermont is a sweet city escape marked by rustic style.

Throughout the house, patterned wallpaper and furniture add character.

Anne Hathaway’s character in The Intern resides in a grand Brooklyn townhouse. The interiors balance the home’s traditional architecture with contemporary furnishings and decor, giving it a high-end yet welcoming atmosphere. The real draw is the rustic-meets-contemporary-style kitchen, which features open shelving, high ceilings, crown molding, a farmhouse sink, and a charming mantel.

When Hallie and Annie switch places and visit each other’s homes, Hallie becomes enchanted with her mother’s London townhouse. Upon entering, she’s welcomed by a burnt orange-painted entryway and enveloped by gallery walls. The rest of the home is quite grand, thanks to a refined dining room, an imposing staircase, and Elizabeth James’s bedroom with a walk-in closet.

The California house Kate Winslet’s character flees to in The Holiday is the epitome of California cool. Thanks to a neutral color palette with warm tones, the house is inviting but extremely aspirational. It boasts high ceilings, a nice pool, a big bedroom with automatic blackout shades, and a movie theater-quality media room. The gated property is the ultimate spot for much-needed R&R.

Picture an American dream home, and a house like the one in Father of the Bride likely comes to mind. The white Colonial with a green door and matching green shutters has it all. With light yellow walls, plush living room sofas, and farmhouse accents in the kitchen and dining area, it’s endlessly cozy—as is the renovated baby suite they add in Father of the Bride 2.

While Cameron Diaz’s character isn’t immediately enthralled with the English country home she escapes to in The Holiday, it feels straight out of a storybook. It may not be the ideal place to be in come winter, but it still oozes warmth. With exposed wood beams, a charming kitchen, and a claw-foot tub in the bathroom, why would you ever want to leave?

When Annie lands in California, she gets to experience her father’s Napa Valley vineyard and ranch house. The ivy-covered home is built for indoor-outdoor living thanks to a loggia outfitted with rattan furniture and a pool for a cool dip on hot days. Inside, it boasts high ceilings, sizable windows, and a giant fireplace in the living room. Not to mention, Hallie’s bedroom, with pale yellow walls and impeccable views, is a dream setup.

It’s Complicated highlights a prime example of the Nancy Meyers movie house. In it, Meryl Streep’s character lives in a Spanish-style ranch. The real star of the property is the soft white kitchen. Framed by an archway, it features open shelving with carefully stacked dishes, a marble island with a rustic body, and a nearby dining area that comfortably seats six. Beyond that, the expansive front porch and lush landscaping make it a true California dream.

No home embodies the Nancy Meyers movie aesthetic better than the Hamptons beach house in Something’s Gotta Give. The spacious setting comprises a fully stocked kitchen, intimate dining room, and grand living room with ample book storage. The wrap-around porch makes an excellent place for lounging with a good book all day. All of that, and it’s only steps away from the beach—meaning sun, sand, and surf are easily accessible all summer long.
