“Life As We Know It” Movie House

“Life As We Know It” Movie House

Life As We Know It movie house is in Atlanta, Georgia. The movie was shot in Atlanta.  There were sets made for the interior shots for the movie.  Its one of the most memorable homes from a movie. Colonial in style and on a beautiful piece of property. Gimme it.

"Life As We Know It" Movie House

 

Life As We Know It movie

I took this shot for the bamboo shades, fireplace, and family room area.  Plus, Sophie’s real, biological parent’s are here and it’s Sophie’s 1st birthday.

Katherine Heigl plays Holly Berenson, Josh Duhamel plays Eric Messer, and the real parents are played by Christina Hendricks (Mom) and Hayes MacArthur (Dad), but the real parents are not seen much except in the beginning and in a short family film in the middle of the movie.

kitchen

The bamboo chairs that match the window shades crush me, they are magnifico.  I like glass doors on kitchen cabinets, but the square cubby holes above each glass cabinet are what I noticed as different.  Love the messy kitchen counters; this is real life.  The three lamps over the island ain’t too shabby either.

Back of movie house

Holly is in shock to learn she and Messer have custody of Sophie.  It’s a lot for her to take in, so lets just take in the back of the house.  It was not until I saw this shot that I realized how tall the “Life As We Know It” house is in real life.

Gold chair

Showing those two gold chairs that I did not notice when watching the movie initially.  Sometimes you have to stop the movie to drink it all in and take in the details.  

movieBrown walls, orange and gold pillows, and picture on the wall all make a warm, inviting room.  How can Holly and Messer even think to fight in this setting?

movie

Yeah, I did not notice this built-in L-shaped couch when I watched the movie the first time, so I paused to get a better look, and then saw the plantation shutters on the lower windows too.

The two matching tables, mirrors, and lamps brighten up the entrance.

Messer is bonding with Sophie after a crazy day when he took her to work with him.

movie

The real parent’s arguing about the clouds painted on the ceiling just after their bundle of joy (Sophie) is born.  Gotta love clouds painted on a ceiling.

Their life in the movie is defined by the house at different times of the year during their transition from single can do anything I want adults, to becoming parents.  This is the shot called SUMMER in “Life As We Know It.”

Here is a better look at those two gold chairs I like and they look like rockers.  Catherine Heigl was a new mother herself during the shooting of this movie.

Hey, I saw Messer push her, I did, and now she is crying.  How could they do that?  I thought deeply about it and decided that it was a fake push, and she was in real life crying about something else.  This little sweetie’s real life name is Brooke Clagett and she was born a tiny preemie and was cared for by many nurses, extended family, big sister, friends, and volunteers.  Then, she spent 11 weeks in Atlanta filming the movie and got loads of attention from the actors, producers, costumers, production assistants and especially Josh Duhamel and Katherine Heigl were very involved with her.  - imdb.com 

So, she was okay, it’s an illusion that Messer pushed her, right?  I took this shot for Sophie crying and for the 3 steps up that go to a landing and you can walk outside to a patio.  I like a sunken room.  It is 1 step up out of the room in the opposite direction seen in the photo above this one.  Am I crazy to think of these things?  I think so.

movie

You know that I had to take the Messer in his underwear shot.

movie

Holly is stunning for her date with new love interest, Sam, played by Josh Lucas.  You can get a better look at how the silver mirror and lamp brighten the room.  I wonder where set decorators for “Life As We Know It” got their furniture?  I would join the club if I knew.

movie

Their lives take a turn with Messer leaving them (Holly and Sophie) and Holly is now a single parent.  The house defines their life now as AUTUMN in the passage of time.

movie

A beautiful mother, daughter scene takes place in this soft, flowing bedroom.  This is where Sophie calls Holly Mommy for the first time and she can barely believe it, but yes, she says, I am your Mommy.

movie

The house shows their life is now in WINTER and there has been a change……

movie

They are completely together now, for life, and it’s Sophie’s birthday again, like in the opening scene.  Sophie is two and Holly and Messer have made it together now for one year.  It is a special celebration indeed.  Cupcakes!  They are so popular for birthdays, weddings, and anytime.  Plus, Holly plays a baker in the movie.  I cannot watch those Cupcake food shows without wanting to make, bake, and eat cupcakes.

movie

Goodbye Life As We Know It house and lovely new family that loves each other beautifully now.  It’s a happy ending loved by all, for the sake of a couple finally falling in love despite being thrown together in a difficult situation, and for the sake of little Sophie who is just starting life having an adoring mom and dad again.  THE END

Did you like the movie Life As We Know It?  I think most people did, well, maybe not guys.

    I would take it too, this house is GORGEOUS in every way.  I love the break down you did of the pics and the explanations that went along with them.  I love the mirrors/tables/lamps by the front door too!

    I was memorized by this house when I first saw the movie. I love the color of it, the way the interior looks, the bright kitchen and the entry (one can dream of having an entry like that) and the built in was something I missed as well. I like that you took the photo of Messer in his underwear.

  4. Watched the movie and loved the home but didn’t appreciate all the details until reading your post! Love the overview! Great post- thanks for sharing!
