Robert and Sol’s House: Get the Look! [Living Room]

It doesn’t surprise me one bit that a steady flow of emails arrive requesting design resources for the Spanish Colonial style home Robert and Sol share on the Netflix hit Grace and Frankie. After all, earth tones are holding steady in 2021 (read this paint color forecast)! The world beyond our homes can feel cold and chaotic so what a gift to return to a welcoming cocoon. Robert and Sol’s House: Get the Look [Living Room] offers furniture and decor suggestions with two mood boards. Even if you’re not a fan of the show, you may still fall for the warmth of this Cali-Spanish aesthetic.

Psst. These mood boards below are for folks who may want to capture the warmth and mix of styles within this handsome Cali nest shared by Robert (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston).

Robert and Sol’s House: Get the Look of Their Living Room

Unlike a lot of Hollywood sets, the decor and furniture in homes featured on Grace and Frankie are indeed real. I shared how to get the look of that Malibu beach house RIGHT HERE.

The set design and shopping is painstakingly considered by production designer Devorah Herbert to reflect the sensibilities and quirkiness of the show’s beloved characters.

Even actors on the show want the look for themselves (see this interview with Brooklyn Decker in AD).

Robert & Sol Mood Board #1

Robert and Sol’s house is a handsome blend of Spanish Colonial and casual contemporary California style. Set designer Devorah Herbert told Traditional Home she incorporated lots of warm natural tones, organic textures, and a mix of patterns.

Spanish Inspired Design Elements

When you’re after that vintage Cali Spanish look, think: rustic beams, weathered finishes, grand-scale doors, heavily textured walls, rich colors, handmade tiles, traditional Mexican folk art, built-in wall niches, rugged wood furniture, handcrafted art objects, retablos (devotional paintings), antique Spanish folk art, and traditional pottery.

    Great post and inspiration. While I’m more of the light/neutral/texture style, I did just update my sofas with a similar colored sectional as their couch, so thrilled to see that’s “on trend.” Have a good week!

      I field so many questions about the Grace and Frankie set so it was time to deconstruct their living room a bit. I love that cognac color of the leather – enjoy your new sofas, Carol!

    The living room is the soul of the house. It is the space where friends and loved ones hang out and make numerous memories. So, it is crucial to give a welcoming vibe to the living room area.

    Where to buy a front door like shown on Spanish Colonial set of Grace and Frankie, Sol and Robert’s place?

      I’m guessing the door on that home was custom, but my own rustic wood front door with speakeasy is here: https://rstyle.me/+ozVDbEPm74Rzlnk0QUNC5A. So you can sometimes find a rustic Old World look – just keep in mind wood prices are high right now so products are too (if they’re even in stock!).

    I am looking for the lamps in Robert and Sol’s livingroom from the show Frankie and Grace. They have a bronze bottom with black swirls on the bottom part of the lamp and the neck of the lamp looks like it could be a pearl essence color…..could you help me?
    It’s becoming an obsession.

      While I haven’t found the exact table lamp yet, wondering if you’re open to something similar? Is it the scale of the lamp you need/like? The texture? The silhouette? The style? Is it important that it have that glazed top and textured bottom? Because in searching for earthenware or terracotta type rustic options, there are some gorgeous examples. I’m partial myself to Pottery Barn. This one has the scale you may be after: https://rstyle.me/+BuBRUJ_jp4K9Aw7XQrcz_A Or for a two tone rustic urn type: https://rstyle.me/+GPqnwKw7ySSjaSqk3M10jQ and Here’s a neutral and timeless understated cement lamp: https://rstyle.me/+nRIviaLhn6WfJn1w4o6aQA

      Doggone it, now I’m obsessed! πŸ™‚

      Looks like a warm white with soft brown undertones – look at Benjamin Moore White Sand.
