Design-oriented director Nancy Meyers, Production Designer Jon Hutman, Set Decorator Beth Rubino SDSA and their design & décor teams have done it again!

Over half a decade ago, SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE created a sensation that still reverberates with queries to this website re: the Hampton Beach House, belonging to Diane Keaton’s character, Erica Barry. Now, rave reviews are rolling in for the sets for their new collaboration, the romantic comedy IT’S COMPLICATED.

Here, Rubino generously shares some of her resources for décor elements featured in Meryl Streep’s character’s Santa Barbara House, particularly Jane’s Living Room and Jane’s Dining Room & Kitchen.
