Top 5 Inspiring Film Sets

1. Somethings Gotta Give 

This 2003 movie starring Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson has the most inspiring beach house set in the Hamptons. Even though it was more than 10 years ago, the team of set designers and decorators did such an amazing job keeping the style so classic and timeless that it is still relevant in today's design world. The exterior was filmed on location in Southampton, but all the interiors were built and shot on a soundstage.  

This living room set is so beautifully timeless...who wouldn't want to live here?! The soft blue linen sofa, the warm wood and rattan accents, the beautiful cream drapes to the gorgeous wall of french patio doors with the perfect backyard pool backdrop. It is just perfect! 

Everything looks put together, but so effortless and natural at the same time. The relaxed seating arrangement is pulled together by this iconic blue and white striped rug. It was sold after the movie was filmed at an auction and there are still replicas of this rug out there that you could still buy!

The perfect exterior poolside shot of the beach house with cream lounge chairs and blue striped throw pillows. 

These Lee Jofa slip covers are so beautiful... The soft blues-greens of the print and bow ties are so timeless and feminine. The sisal rug creates a more relaxed and natural feel compared to a wool rug and it works wonders in this classic dining room. The white built ins with beadboard wainscotting behind showcases the collection of ironstone so beautifully too.
