It’s Monday Funday Time, 3rd Edition!


It’s Monday once again, our dear Stiletto-istas, and that means one thing: Monday Fundays! Where The Bamboo Stiletto combines her obsessions for to-die-for beach houses/holiday homes, addiction to the movies/TV and celebrity gossip, all into one single fun post!

Did you figure out the answer to last week’s Monday Funday pop quiz ? We asked for the name of the blonde Hollywood actress who became a rom-com star after headlining three of the late Nora Ehpron’s biggest blockbusters and whose envy-inducing Martha’s Vineyard beach house we managed to get a peek into, courtesy of Elle Decor. One of our readers wrote in with the correct answer…yay! yes, it’s Meg Ryan, of course!

This week, we’re going to test your Hollywood movie trivia skills once again as we visit the set of one of The Bamboo Stiletto’s favourite Nancy Meyer films. Director Nancy Meyer seems to have specialized in making movies featuring production sets of the most gorgeous homes for us to drool over.

For instance, how many of you can remember the house from the Steve Martin classics “Father of the Bride” and its sequel “Father of the Bride II” when they added the baby’s nursery into the house? How about something more recent, like the house from that hilarious Meryl StreepAlec Baldwin starrer, “It’s Complicated“? I can’t remember the exact details of the movie or if Meryl Streep ended up with her rogue ex Alec Baldwin or promising new romance Steve Martin, but dear me in heaven, do I remember her beautiful Santa Barbara ranch-style Mediterranean!

In today’s Monday Funday, browse through the beautiful pics of this divine Hamptons beach house below – and tell me if you recognize which movie it comes from (all images courtesy of another The Bamboo Stiletto addiction, the Hooked on Houses blog):

the charming living room, so stylish it warranted a feature in “Architectural Digest” magazine

here’s another look at that living room, with lights dimmed during an evening storm

such a cozy dining room!

love, love, love this reading nook in the library…sail away, sail away, sail away…

THE showpiece in the house…I mean, this kitchen is just a stunning beaut!

the main character’s master bedroom, with the gorgeous bay windows framing her cute little home office, where she works as a writer. when Herr Hubby & I watched this movie and I saw this home office, I told him: “that’s what I want to do for the rest of my life, write and work from home…and I want a home office like that to do it in.” he patted my hand & said: “then you shall have it, my love.” hahahaaaa!

By now, you may have recognized the house already and may be racking your brains for the movie’s title. Soooooo…to make it easier, it is only the beginning of the week after all and we don’t want to frazzle you too much, here’s a photo of the movie’s main stars and a short plot synopsis below:

Divorced writer Diane Keaton and notorious playboy bachelor Jack Nicholson “Meet Cute” at her Hamptons beach house when he is invited to be her daughter’s weekend date then unexpectedly extends his visit due to a heart attack while on premises. He convalesces in her guestroom while daughter (the always cute Amanda Peet) heads back to Manhattan and his hunky heart specialist (played with heartthrob soulfulness by Keanu Reeves) seems to be showing special interest in the lady of the house. As Jack and Diane spend more time together in the house and on the beach while he recovers, all kinds of comical and romantic “complications ensue”, as they say in screenplay lingo.

Have you figured out the title of this romantic comedy yet??? Let us know…for our 3rd edition of Monday Fundays! C’mon, don’t be shy, we would LOVE to hear from you 🙂
