What we ALL want! The homes of production designer Jon Hutman


Production designer Jon Hutman is the master mind behind some of the most amazing homes in contemporary cinema. Did you like Helen Hunt’s pad in What Women Want? Or were you, and you should be, jealous of Cameron Diaz’s quintessential L.A home in The Holiday? Or how about Diane Keaton’s Long Island hideaway in Something’s Gotta Give? That house had home-owner across the globe going out on rampant hunts for the same brass handles, the same stools, pots, jars and everything. And most recently, Meryl Streep’s Santa Barbara’s cottage in It’s Complicated. All these were the work of Mr Hutman. In most cases, set decorator Beth Rubino assisted him.

 Jon Hutman is known for his casual typical American designs. They look as if they grew organically and hardly any planning went into them.

  1. oh, I loved the kitchen in It’s complicated!
    Crappy movie though. Steve Martin sure looked bad, like someone dug him up.

    I am very interested in the painting in the foyer of Cameron Diaz’s house in the movie “The Holiday” of a dress. Could you tell me the title of the painting and where I might be able to find it. My daughter loves the piece and I would love to give it to her as a housewarming gift for her new home. Thank you for any assistance you might be able to give me.

  3. Jon Hutman is really amazing. A good movie should really be made in a nice cozy place and thats what exactly he had made. His ideas and its outcome is really very hard to ignore.
