My boyfriend and I were watching Something’s Gotta Give a few weeks ago and we were both enamored with the décor of the beautiful Hamptons house that Diane Keaton’s character lives in.
It has a beautiful, “beach-y” feel with calming shades of blue, navy, and cream. The dark wood furniture is sturdy and reminds me of driftwood. The floor-to-ceiling windows opening out onto a view of the Atlantic are breathtaking!
According to Hooked on Houses, all of the rooms in this home were built on a sound stage by set directors. The home is an actual home located on Long Island…I wonder what the actual interior really looks like?
The director of this film, Nancy Meyers, also directed It’s Complicated with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin. That movie has one of the best kitchens I’ve ever seen in a film. Wouldn’t it be awesome to be a set designer?
The full striped rug adds a great layer on which to build the comfortable seating area. I love the large ottoman, which serves as a coffee table with extra seating and storage. The mismatched end tables also add coziness to the room.
The table in the entryway has one of my favorite vignettes ever! The large picture of a beach chair is to die for (I love any art work that looks like art deco posters). A collection of hurricane glass lamps and seashells and coral collected from the beach make a stunning still life that reflects the home’s location.
The bedroom, in various shades of grey, grey blue, white, and cream, is amazing! I want to sink into the beautiful crisp sheets while reading a good chick lit novel (because at the beach you’re supposed to read chick lit, right?
What other movie homes do you like? (I’m thinking the Father of the Bride house is up there! Same with the beautiful brick home in Home Alone).
