Do you love that beachy rope chair with the round back? Me too.

And here’s a pretty blue sofa (a sleeper) that might be right at home in your beach house or beachy style space.

The beach house in the netflix series Grace and Frankie starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin has a lot of folks swooning, including my sister, who encouraged me to watch it for the house and for Jane Fonda’s wardrobe. 

There are all these beachy home decor ideas we can steal!

Like their Plantation style Adirondack chairs.  It comes in all sorts of colors, and here it is in white…I think the color of Grace and Frankie’s is B.T. Aqua (Distressed):

I don’t watch a lot of TV beyond Real Housewives (hearing the bickering, nonsensical drama, and wine-fueled dialogue somehow relaxes me yet makes my husband and sons want to hurl themselves out of the nearest window) so I rely on friends and family to keep me apprised of what’s popular and trending on the tube. Have you seen Grace and Frankie?

Today, Brooke Giannetti commented on IG that she was watching the series and it felt surreal since Steve designed the house inspiring this beach house! So that seals it. Now that I know the Grace and Frankie beach house and set interiors were inspired by the Broad Beach home Giannetti Home designed, I have to binge watch it!

Have a look at some stills from Grace and Frankie, suggestions for exact or similar furniture and home decor, as well as some gifs I found of some hilarious scenesand stay tuned for my next post where I show you the original beach house by Giannetti Home that inspired this one on the show.

I’m spying pretty blue Shaker-style kitchen cabinets, open shelving, an apron front farm sink, a big butcherblock island with cooktop, and counter stools covered in grainsack linen. The white paint color on walls and trim is a warm creamy hue reminding me of Benjamin Moore’s Dove Wing or Linen White.

There is also white painted cabinetry in the kitchen and a beautiful archway with barreled ceiling…looks like it leads to the dining room.

The dishes used on the set are discontinued (Lenox Aerin Emerald Mist).

Kitchen Cabinet Paint Color Ideas

While I’m awaiting the exact paint color from the set designer, here are some very close approximations which may work for you!

The bookshelf with arched detail is a cute recessed detail in the island.

Medium Blue Paint Color Ideas

Some of you have been writing me asking me about the medium blue paint color used in the dining room and living room spaces. I have some ideas for you as I await a response from the set designer!

This first one is a blue grey and strikes me as sophisticated and perfect for a beachy room. If you favor periwinkle blues, this option may appeal. What you want to avoid is a baby blue nursery blue which is too bright or juvenile. Grey undertones help.

I love this next faded denim hue – how much more relaxed and beachy can you get than the color of a cool worn pair of faded blue jeans?

This next blue has an oceanic feel to me and has green undertones.

Another blue paint possibility is this one, again with green undertones and for lovers of teal.

My sister told me she loves the green and white dishes (they’re discontinued Lenox Aerin, Emerald Mist pattern), and here we see them on the white open wood shelves. I love the vintage style pendant light above the sink.

Are you a fan of the shingles? Here’s another shot of the exterior.

Seeing these stills reminds me of how Jane Fonda still has the best hair, doesn’t she? I watched every season and episode of Newsrooma few years back and was knocked out by the incredible shape she remains in and that hair!

My sister said one of her favorite scenes in Grace and Frankie is where Jane Fonda’s character catches a glimpse of her upper arm in the mirror,and it was a TV moment powerful enough to get written up in the NY Times right here. It resonates with a lot of us!

I couldn’t resist leaving you with a few funny gifs from Grace and Frankie that illuminate what these characters are like…

    I was at the gate with this show waiting for it excited to see all the talk long before anyone was chattering about it, all three seasons my daughter and I have watched, the first two are so real in how life takes these strange unexpected turns of events. The writers are genius and the combination of stable and exsentric with Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (LilyTomlin) the humor from this cast is entertaining to say the least. The 2 seasons take you through a life journey questioning what the heck went wrong…pot smoking Frankie muddles through her loss and left over free spirited artist new age days. Grace is the reasoning and sounding board of running the show…. Season 3 gets even more loose and graphic, if you thought season 1 and 2 crossed some boundaries wait for season 3…. Funny yes indeed and your sister was so right about watching the home and clothing style of Grace. Frankie is spotted wearing Robins designs from her Magnolia Pearl clothing line.

    As for grace and Frankie's beach house…wait until you see the home their gay ex's buy in season 3… I was going crazy over so many features in their home and I so was wishing it were my home. Yes, I could make my home decor fit right in anchoring it with some kilim rugs and some great French wall hangings.
    I know your style and taste and their home won't disappoint you.

    I rarely watch TV. Not even housewives…I am hooked on Nashville and love the homes in that show as well. Well my dear enjoy catching up…and will love to hear what you think of the ex's new home.

    I am rewatching the series, for the dialog and the home! Just FYI their home is set in La Jolla, not Malibu. I believe the actual home ny Gianetti is in Malibu but they are not in the show. If you are unfamiliar with California Malibu and La Jolla are no where close to each other. No biggie but I thought I'd clear that up for you.

      thank you kindly! πŸ™‚

    My mother and I are both big Housewives fans and dearly love Grace and Frankie! My mother is about Jane's age and was so inspired by her clothes that we made it our mission to get my mom some
    "Jane shirts"! We binge watch the show when she visits which will be next month. I can hardly wait!

      January 20, 2019 / 5:15 pm

      While I still haven’t heard from the set designer, I did do some research – scrutinizing screenshots from the show and exploring medium blue paint colors. I came up with paint color possibilities which may appeal and added them to the post – do check them out and see what you think. Because of lighting differences and photography online, the blue walls look different depending on the image. So I concentrated on the blue sofa – sort of a chambray or faded denim look. My favorite paint color of the options I added to the post? Glidden’s faded denim. Let me know what you think.

    Hello! Was wondering if you ever did get a reply from the set designer and know the paint colors that were used? About to buy paint and I’m obsessed with their colors. Up to and including the paint color of the walls at their retirement community condo (where they only briefly lived).

    Would greatly appreciate a speedy response!

    Thanks –
