Staycation Movies & TV That Feed Your Decorator’s Soul

Forced Staycation movies

So, how are you doing? I imagine, like me, you’re pretty stressed about this whole situation we find ourselves in. I am working on a series of blog posts offering suggestions and resources for entertainment, education and maybe even tuning out the world with some pretty. First up: Staycation Movies and Television shows for the Decorator’s Soul. Since I’ve spent a blogging career writing about the set decor of movies and television programs, I thought I’d gather some of the best into this single blog post for your reference. All of these titles are available via streaming or on cable. I hope you enjoy!

July 2022 Update – I hope you and yours have remained healthy over the last two+ years. We were so naive when the pandemic started. The reality it’s not over yet so this post is evergreen if you find yourself stuck at home, for whatever reason! I’m adding Downton Abbey to the mix as well, which I should have added right away. I know I’ve rewatched it over the course of these last couple of years!

  1. Home Again was a cute movie – not realistic but cute, great chic flick! Did you ever read Reese’s book Whiskey in a Teacup? It’s a great read, it not only has pretty photos and recipes but it’s very inspirational on living the southern life. Hope you and the pup are well over there!

  2. Thanks for all of these recommedations, LInda. There are some here i haven’t seen, but lately I haven’t been able to concentrate on one thing long enough to watch Netflix. However, I have watched Grace and Frankie all the way through, and it just fabulous. I 100% recommend it as a binge watch!

  3. The first time I watched Grace and Frankie I almost hurt myself laughing. It is one of my favorite shows that just makes me laugh. You know – a good belly laugh. I have seen many of your other recommendations. Thank you for providing me some more choices to watch in the future!

  4. What a cool post. Linda! As Good As it Get is one of my all time favorites!! OMG, that house, seriously every time I watch this movie I want to move there. And the story is delicious! I look forward to your next ones.

  5. Great list, Linda! I’m looking forward to checking out some of them I haven’t seen. Working my way through Frankie and Grace right now with serious hair envy for Jane Fonda LOL!
