Interior Inspiration: The Intern
There were two thoughts that crossed my mind when I first saw the trailer for The Intern, rom-com queen Nancy Meyer’s new movie starring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro:
- Wait, Anne Hathaway seems pretty okay in this. I actually want to see it. Wonder if it will help her get over all that Hatha-hate…
- I want to live inside this movie.
It’s no surprise, really. From the English charm and California cool of The Holiday to, well, the English charm and California cool of The Parent Trap, Meyers is known as much for her set and production design as she is for her plots and characters.
Plus, for The Intern, Meyers used Pinterest as a source of inspiration, and it’s abundantly clear in the set photos. Based on the trailer, fashion-startup CEO Jules (Hathaway) is exactly the type of #girlboss I’d like to be, with the Park Slope brownstone and sweet office to match (her wardrobe doesn’t look too shabby, either).
I’m a huge fan of the loft vibes of Jules’s startup office, based in Red Hook, Brooklyn. How amazing is all that glass and exposed brick?
Jules’s Park Slope brownstone was allegedly inspired by Jenna Lyons’s (now former) townhouse, and you can totally tell – especially in this dark-walled master bedroom. (See Jenna’s Park Slope digs here.)
That light fixture! Those built-ins! The super-pinnable juxtaposition of rustic woods, traditional bones and modern touches!
Mmm, yep, I would very much like to move in here, please.
This kitchen is also super pinnable, from the subway tile to the open shelving.
Right now, you can purchase actual props from the set of the film on One Kings Lane (um, yes please). However, lots of items are sold out and – well – they’re pretty pricey. Luckily, the look isn’t terribly difficult to recreate for less, especially since The Intern mixes lots of currently trendy styles that you can find at places like Target, World Market, etc. Shop Intern-inspired pieces below:
