Have I mentioned how much I love November?
It’s a month filled with anticipation. The holidays are coming. And since Thanksgiving is by far my favorite holiday, November and I are pretty tight.
But, I accept the fact that maybe not everyone does a dance of joy when the November Pottery Barn catalog arrives.
Enter the best fall movie celebration of all time, You’ve Got Mail. If this movie doesn’t get you excited for the season, nothing will.
It’s no Oscar winner, I realize, but in terms of celebrating the season, it’s got it all:
Floppy-eared Golden Retrievers
Curling up with a good book
Cute dressed-up kids
And, of course, Autumn in New York
Is there a more perfect rom-com pairing than Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks? I think not.
AND, if the fall thing isn’t doing it for you, check out the interiors in this movie.
Director Nora Ephron is known for hooking her single-girl heroines up with some sweet, albeit fabulously-fiction, city apartments in her movies and she certainly doesn’t disappoint here.
Check out those built-ins! The lamp could be cute too, maybe with a drum shade?
The intricate painted wood trim really makes this entryway. The whimsical bedroom is eclectic but still pulled together.
Decorated for the holidays:
None of the characters’ homes (or workplaces) are too shabby. Even if their 1998 computers take up half a room each.
Dreaming of rustling leaves and pumpkin pie yet? Or maybe you just want to give your MacBook an extra hug for not taking 20 minutes to get you to the Internet? (C’mon you know the modem sound in the movie is oddly comforting…).
Do you have any movies you watch every year around this time? Any movie homes you’re in love with?
