Profession coming in the way of romance is a rather conventional rom-com premise and a common happening. A lot of times, characters and real people are forced to choose between professional ambitions and romantic connections. However, on a lot of occasions, profession also brings love to the lives of people. That is well established in Hallmark’s ‘Love in Design.’

There is a reason that Hallmark is regarded as the leader of romance stories on television. It has presented tons of cheery, candy-coated tales of love on its network for a long time now. Some of its movies have been known to be capable of making people feel optimistic once again.

‘Love in Design’ revolves around the LA-based, Hannah McElroy. She is the host of a home improvement show and that is where the title of the movie comes from. She has a self-professed, modern style of design. Unfortunately, her show’s ratings have been falling behind. Hence, her network’s head wishes to try a new format for McElroy’s show. The new format involves a more extensive renovation over multiple episodes. She is sent to her hometown, Lewisburg in New England for the renovation of a historic building named Lewisburg Manor.

The owner of Lewisburg Manor, Margot wishes to transform it into a bed and breakfast. However, one of Hannah’s former lovers, Jeff is asked to ensure Hannah’s renovation preserves the historical aesthetic of the manor. Will the two be able to find a middle ground? Despite their opposing design styles, will sparks fly between them amidst work? There is only one way to find out!

Love In Design Filming Locations

‘Love in Design’ is a small-town movie. The television film is set in New England, in the town of Lewisburg. Being a Hallmark production, the small-town charm is captured rather well. Hence, it is natural for viewers to wonder where the production was actually filmed. Was it actually shot in New England? Or was some other place used to double up as the New England town?

Manitoba

Filming for ‘Love in Design’ was not actually carried out in New England. Instead, the Hallmark movie was shot in the province of Manitoba in Canada. Here, Winnipeg was used as the filming location. This is proven by the following Instagram post which shows the last day of shooting:

That is not all. Actress Danica McKellar also uploaded a couple of posts with the location tag of Winnipeg.

A lot of Hallmark movies are filmed in Canada. This is because the country offers some truly gorgeous small-town locales. Apart from that, it also provides some lucrative tax credits that help bring down filming costs considerably. These also help diversify the country’s local economy.
