On the Set: He's Just Not That Into You

We've been watching The Wire from the beginning for the past few days, and we're officially hooked. It's a gritty drama that is applauded for its accurate portrayal of Baltimore's law enforcement and drug dealings in the ghetto. So imagine watching an episode or two of The Wire, and then following that up with this fluffy Baltimore-based movie, He's Just Not That Into You. A completely different portrayal of Baltimore, to say the least! Well, even though we weren't huge fans of this movie, we did find the sets to be...dare we say it? Accurate for a few well-to-do thirtysomethings? Take a look at three of the set after the jump and see if you agree with our assessment...

Gigi's Apartment

What we noticed the most about Gigi's red-hued apartment was that it seemed like it was decorated with Craigslist finds mixed with mainstream pieces, like Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn. We love the vintage 50's dining table (which doubles as a desk) matched with red iron-wrought patio chairs.


Neil and Beth's Loft

Neil and Beth's loft feels like it's in a transition phase: It's filled with cast-offs from relatives and relics from their own days of singlehood...but they've just begun replacing the old with the new slowly, purchasing classic pieces (like their dining set) and artwork.


The standby trick to laying out a loft? Using rugs to designate different spaces.


A cozy, compact kitchen. We love this color combination of seafoam green with black and white.


Janine and Ben's Townhouse

Portrayed as the most financially successful of the couples, Janine and Ben are remodeling their new townhouse throughout the entire film. This picture perfect home may not have the warmth and charm of the other two sets pictured here, but it's got some nice modern details.


These frosted glass panels/shelving units reach from the floor to the ceiling and are used throughout the home.


The open layout of each floor encourages an easy flow from one room to the next.


A floating staircase gives the living room an airy yet industrial feeling.


The upstairs bedroom is split into two sections: the sleeping area and the den.


The other side of the bedroom leads to the vanity area and bathroom.
