Do you love that beachy rope chair with the round back? Me too.
Here’s that beautiful chair:
Here’s another version:
And here’s a similar white sofa (this is actually the exact sofa designer Sarah Richardson put in her own media room!).
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 scenes…and 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.
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).
But here’s a green and white Lenox pattern that is priced right and available!
Here are vintage-style pendant lights similar to those in Grace and Frankie’s kitchen:
Here we see the open concept floorplan, plantation shutters, and nautical style pendant lights above the island.
The bookshelf with arched detail is a cute recessed detail in the island.
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.
A simple, casual, coastal style space anchored with a jute or seagrass rug and with blue and orange.
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…
