Happy 4th of July! Yesterday found me sipping deliciousness and enjoying the outdoors before tuning into the premiere of Stranger Things with my kids. But it’s another Netflix series on my mind this morning. I studied stills from the series Grace and Frankie (where Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin share space in a charming oceanfront beach house) for coastal-barefoot-casual-with-touches-of-boho decor inspiration to share with you. Just for kicks, let’s learn some fun facts about the show then consider 15 Grace and Frankie Beach House Decorating Ideas with furniture and decor resources…including a few exact finds from the set!
Is the beach house a real house or just a set? Those shots you see of the exterior of the beach house are of a real beach house at Broad Beach (read about the real Grace & Frankie beach house by Steve Giannetti here). However, the barefoot elegant coastal cottage style interiors were built on a sound stage!
What’s all the fuss about Grace & Frankie’s beach house anyway? Cocreator and Executive Producer Marta Kauffman told AD the beach house on Grace & Frankie is the third main character and “the place that healed them.”

While it could blow the whole decor budget to spring for a painted antique Swedish cupboard, console, or dresser (do you suppose the set decorator borrowed that idea from the Swedish antiques collecting Giannettis as well?), you could always paint inexpensive pieces with a paint color like this:

What Prompted Me to Watch the Netflix Series
I follow Brooke Giannetti on IG, where she mentioned that watching the series felt eerie since her husband Steve designed the real beach house which served as inspiration for the one on the show! So for you fans of the Giannettis…now that you know the Grace and Frankie beach house and set interiors were inspired by the Giannetti Home designed Malilbu beach house, that is just one more reason to watch it for the interior design.

Why is Grace & Frankie is a haven for design freaks? Some of us binge on Netflix to engage with a riveting story. It’s also a way to numb after a stressful day at the office. But design freaks? We appreciate a carefully crafted set design and how a character’s decor reflects their sensibilities. Did you catch yesterday’s tour of a beach house from Big Little Lies?
Peace to you right where you are.
