Designers...along with the producers and directors. Set design isn't just decorating or staging, it is immersing oneself in the world of the characters who inhabit the space. I did a little research and found a few examples of great set design and the wide array that it entails.
Sex and the City...the first word that come to my mind is fabulous. Carrie's eclectic little apartment unknowingly effected my personal preference. I loved how it looked lived in, yet completely uptown New York. In the second film they took her shabby chic apartment and gave it an upgrade. I can remember loving the interiors in the film (mostly because that was the only good part). They used set decorator Lydia Marks of Marks & Frantz, who "created a space that blends masculine elements, such as linear midcentury furnishings and dark woods, with feminine accessories, including whimsical rugs and cheerful botanical-themed fabrics."

Big's and Carrie's living room
The most famous closet EVER!
Her old apartment's living and bedroom space
Love and Other Drugs
Claw foot tubs are the best!
The loft's expansive windows let in lots of natural light,
which can make even the most discombobulated spaces look lovely.
Open shelving, an ancient '50s fridge, and a green industrial pendant define the kitchen area.
The Love and Other Drugs set reminds me of the Humphrey loft on Gossip Girl!
