Practical Magic

So many bloggers have featured stills from the sets of movies like "Somethings Gotta Give", "The Holiday" and other favorites. I too LOVE those homes. But I also *LOVE*HEART*LOVE* the old victorian home in the movie Practical Magic.

Did you know there is a website where you can view stills from the set? It is really cool: http://www.amasveritas.com/film/setting/index.html

I am going to include some of my favorite shots. Layla really got me envisioning my dream home for her giveaway (check out my post on her blog for more details of my super-duper fantasy cottage) and immediately I thought of this movie set. Here are some favorites of mine:


The Pantry
Notice the apothecary style cabinets and built-ins, complete with massive collection of old apothecary bottles & jars. Makes my heart beat faster.






Next up, The Conservatory. Here is where I would grow the herbs to be put to use later in the pantry. I would also grow orchids here and do all my planting.




Next, The Parlor. A little bit of trivia for you: Many of the pieces/props for this movie were bought at Bountiful, Sue Balmforth's shop in Venice Beach.





This is "Verbena", Sally's herbal body product shop. I *LOVE LOVE LOVE* this shop. So simple, clean, understated yet amazing. I love the simple bottle silhouettes, the rustic looking labels, the muted colors, the airy fresh-scrubbed quality, and the rustic containers holding fruit and flowers on the counter. I love the white apothecary type cabinets.... I just love the whole darn thing. If ever I were to design a shop or have my own, I think I would base it on this.






Notice the old scale?!?!?!


And, finally, the piece de resistance, the Kitchen:
Truly, what's not to love? I won't even bore you with recounting every detail I love because I love every single cotton-pickin' thing. Be still my beating heart.





Is there a movie you love to watch just to pause it to take in the set decoration? Is there a movie that features a home that would qualify as your dream home? I would love to hear about it.....

Love Kevin Costners little place in "Message In A Bottle".

"The Lake House" with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock was super cool.

And I also love the house in the movie "Housesitter", with Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn. The location of the Master Bedroom is dreamy.

Hi, my first time by here, via Layla's. What a pretty blog & welcome to blogging! I think I'm liking your style a lot, love the coffee table you refurbished. I'm always painting something or fixing up a thrifty find too. Come by & see me sometime!

I too love the house in this movie. Whenever it is on I watch it just to see the kitchen and the conservatory. I also love the attic room Nicole Kidman sleeps in....Cindy
