Watch this weekend...



Yes, New York City is definitely one of my very favourite places to be in Autumn, something about the season just makes me think of brownstones. One of my very favourite brownstone movie sets is Meg Ryan's home from 'You've Got Mail'. While the film spans several seasons, I always think of it as a Fall movie. I just loved Joe and Kathleen's sweet, witty banter and the above quote is a favourite of mine.

I think Kathleen's adorable shabby chic apartment would be the perfect place to enjoy an autumn weekend (and maybe re-read Pride and Prejudice? :) ). Failing being able to climb into the movie set, I think this would be the perfect rental on a rainy autumn evening. In the theme of the movie, I think a lovely warm quilt and a mug of tea would be the perfect accessories.

Trudi - well a movie rental may be a little cheaper than an airline ticket to start. But I highly recommend New York in the fall!

Matt said...

i opened a shop and named it after "kathleen kelly's" bookstore in the movie, "the shop around the corner".
i have loved this movie forever and i adore kathleen's apartment!

Amanda said...

I love this movie too. It still makes me cry & laugh at the same time. So sad that she had to close her store!

How sweet you are!

I love the screen captures you've featured from the film {talk about apartment envy!} Just how dreamy is Kathleen Kelly's brownstone? I could watch it every day + never tire.

Cheers.

Sarah Klassen said...

I LOVE THIS! This is one of my favorite and much-watched movies, often played while we work away on projects! It's a gorgeous movie, with fantastic characters, fun music, and of course, beautiful scenery! :) I might have to put it on now...

Have a great day, darling!

You've got mail is like the perfect movie ever. i watched it like may times. everything just perfect the cast, the apartment, new york.. what i like about this film is that we can see New York in every season. Spring is my favorite esp when Joe and his nephew go to a festival. :D

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who was enamored by Kathleen Kelly's decor! Ever since that movie I use it as a mental reference when decorating my own home. The best definition I can give it is French Country. Do you think that's accurate?
