Friday's Photos

When I saw the 2003 comedy “Something's Gotta Give” I enjoyed the movie, but was completely taken with the house Diane Keaton's character lived in. Apparently I was not the only one. Here is an excerpt from an article in The Washington Post.
For lots of moviegoers, the most memorable role (in the film Somethings Gotta Give) was played by the house, especially its big, light-filled kitchen. The airy, shingled Hamptons beach house is walled with windows and built-in bookcases. The rooms are open, the furniture slipcovered and the walls and fabrics awash in creamy blues, whites and tans. The kitchen gleams with white glass-front cabinets, vintage hardware, a commercial-style range and dark soapstone counters. With a backdrop like that, who cares if Keaton and Nicholson find midlife love?
I couldn't agree more. Some of these photos are from the film and some are attempts at recreating those beautiful rooms.









Happy Friday!!

I absolutely love the movie. I always try to pause it and look around the house. I adore the house and the decor. I have chosen a chocolate type granite for my new house...but really struggled with whether or not to have honed black granite. Thanks for the beautiful post.
Love, cousin Sasha

Wow love it. I can't tell which is the movie or the recreation. What a dream house. I would live there. My colors are earthy but I now dream of a creamy white kitchen.

Beautiful home and I especially love the kitchen with that great storage under the island and the reading corner.

Wonderful and a pleasure to browse.

oh yeah - i've been loving this house f.o.r.e.v.e.r and funny, i was just talking to a guy friend about it - first the movie but then immediately about the decor.

i also love the outside of the house in the the movie what lies beneath -

love the east coast coastal style - the colors - grays, whites, blues - instantly calms me. so moody.

love it way better than west coast coastal.

I love everything about the movie "What Lies Beneath" -- set decoration -- special effects -- etc. I am going to feature the house in an upcoming post as well.
