Designies? Design Geeks? Whatever Movies About Design.

The Foodies know all the good movies featuring yummy meals and the sports nuts have their themes too. But, what about the Design lovers ? Now we all can name tons of movies where they feature killer interiors , but what about the movies about getting there and the people behind them?
Pillow Talk (1959): Doris Day plays Jan Morrow, a very fashionable(check out those hats!) New York interior decorator. This movie has romance, comedy,and late 50's pastel designs.
Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948): Ok think The Money Pit in black and white starring Cary Grant. The New York couple buy a fixer upper in Connecticut and and it proves to be much more than they had planned on. Another romantic comedy with a great line about picking paint.

The Money Pit (1986): Speaking of The Money Pit! Who couldn't love this funny Tom Hanks film ? You guessed it ANOTHER film about a NYC couple that greats in over their heads remodeling their dream home in the country. I think there might be a second theme running along here. That's ok I do love Tom.
Please Don't Eat the Daisies (1960): Doris Day *check*, NYC *check*, moves to the country *check*, buys a fixer upper *check* , romantic comedy *check check*. Hehe Don't get me wrong love this move and Doris. It is a great movie.
Duplex (2003): Ok mixing it up a little bit.NYC couple buys a duplex in the CITY. It DOESN'T need fixed up , but it does come with annoying neighbor.See? It's a little different. hehe Cute and funny film.
