It was time to update Grace and Frankie Beach House: Shop the Look because good gracious, so many folks are still searching for furniture and decorating ideas to emulate that Netflix set! In fact, even if you haven’t seen the show, you may find a coastal décor find you never knew you couldn’t live without. After studying stills from the Netflix series Grace and Frankie (where Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin share a charming oceanfront beach house), I have ideas for coastal, barefoot, casual, with touches of boho decor inspiration.

Grace and Frankie Beach House Decorating Ideas!
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.”
Production Designer: Devorah Herbert Set Decorators: Beauchamp Fontaine, Christopher Carlson

Tour Grace and Frankie’s Beach House to Steal Decor Ideas!
What better way to study the interior design details and come away with ideas to get the look of their beach house for yourself?
Score a peek at the blue sofa as well as their fabulous kitchen with its classic cottage style.
1. Grace and Frankie Beach House Paint Color Ideas!
It may be a Hollywood set of a pretend beach house, but that won’t stop us from culling very real inspiration, oceanic color palettes, and finds from its interiors!
Navy Blue Kitchen Cabinet Paint Color Idea
Even when you decide you want a navy blue paint color, there are still a ton of options to choose from.
If you’re choosing a paint for cabinets, you’ll definitely want a high quality formula and a finish that will stand up to lots of abuse.
Here’s a very rich navy that you can see on kitchen cabinetry which helps. Bear in mind, it could look quite different with your lighting so ordering samples first is a smart move. Easiest way to see if a paint color will work? Order samples with Samplize and have them delivered straight to your door.
Wall & Trim Paint Color Idea
There’s a good chance Grace and Frankie’s beachy kitchen would be painted with a high quality, timeless white, and here’s a luxurious one that delivers:

Chambray Blue Paint Color for Walls
Blue-Grey Color on Painted Swedish Buffet/Cupboard Near Kitchen
While you could easily spend the whole decor budget on a painted antique Swedish cupboard, console, or dresser (think the set decorator borrowed the idea for it from the Swedish antique collecting Giannettis as well?), you could always paint inexpensive pieces with a paint color like this:
Even a Swedish style reproduction piece can get pricey.
2. Light Blue Classic Casual Coastal Sofa Inspired by Grace and Frankie Beach House
The light blue sofa was probably sourced from Cisco Home and may be their Beverly sofa. Here are some alternatives, beginning with a friendly-cost readymade option which may be appropriate for a beachy style getaway.
If you’re looking for an investment piece that will last a lifetime, check out this custom sofa which has numerous choices for fabric. What I love is how many beautiful coastal blue options are available:
This last option is the least expensive one and has the bonus of being a sleeper sofa.
3. Exact Dark Orange Accent Chairs in Grace and Frankie’s Beach House
So many possibilities for cute club chairs for a beachy, coastal style living room! If you’re after a more neutral chair, here’s one to consider:
Those orange medallion upholstered chairs are so happy! I can imagine them looking amazing with a solid white sofa as well!
4. Rustic Coffee Table With Storage for a Casual Beachy Interior
The casual nature of this beachy living room lends itself to a rugged, chunky coffee table. If you have the space, this one offers storage as well:
5. Driftwood Mirror in Grace and Frankie’s Beach House
The exact mirror is often out of stock, but I have another suggestion I like even better.
If that mirror is out of stock, you may be able to snag this one:
and here’s an option that is a little more modern and a bit less natural:
Peek Inside Grace and Frankie’s Beach House Living Room
6. Beachy White Sofa Ideas Inspired by Grace and Frankie Beach House
I gathered a round up of white sofas here: fabulous white sofas.
This chair with its stripes would be perfect for a beach house!
A beachy white sectional sofa makes so much sense for a casual seaside-inspired family room or den.
7. Coastal Style Table Lamps
This lamp looks like the sea urchin one at Grace and Frankie’s!
A whimsical lamp is right at home in a classic, casual, coastal interior:
You may recognize this particular style table lamp from the show as well:
Another whimsical beachy option with turtles!
For a seeded glass option which brings to mind those gorgeous sea glass aqua blues and greens, this lamp may fit the bill:
Woven textures bring another layer of warmth and depth to a coastal space, and here’s a lamp that strikes the right balance of classic and rustic:
Another beachy bird to consider:
And finally, if you prefer a slightly more chic touch for your tabletop, consider this classic shaped option:
8. Rustic Side Tables & Casual Coastal Tables
I love these end tables as they feel both coastal as well as airy, rustic, and even modern. Will you save:
or keep things extra simple:
This adorable South Seas side cart would be perfect as a versatile table, cart, bar, conversation starter too!
“Inspired by a mid-century antique, this chic little side cart pays homage to the textural beauty of handwoven rattan. Set atop brass casters, it glides across the room with ease. Unexpected as a bedside table; perfection as a mini bar in the living or dining room.” – Serena & Lily
9. Decor Inspired by Grace and Frankie Beach House Library or Reading Nook
In case you love that handsome nook in the beach house:

What Prompted Me to Watch the Netflix Series
Brooke Giannetti mentioned on IG that watching the series felt eerie since her husband Steve designed the real beach house 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.
15. Kitchen Decor Inspired by the Beach House on Grace and Frankie
These bar stools are pricey and resemble those seen on the show!
Here is a friendlier priced option:

I haven’t watched the show, but now I must! The house and furnishings are fun. I love the driftwood mirror and dining room chairs you sourced.
Another great beach house was Diane Keaton’s in the movie, Something’s Gotta Give.
So unforgettable! I should definitely source that one, Rhonda! 🙂
You posted a photo of a white sofa ‘similar’ to the one in the show. I am looking for THEE one in the show. The one in the show has high sides and a high back which I need. I have been unable to find a white sofa with high rolled side arms. Where can I find THIS EXACT sofa?
Haven’t found it and will update post if I do!
Does anyone know the name of the beautiful blue paint used for the interior walls at the beachhouse?
What is the brand and where do they sell the Kobu dining room chairs?
Hi. I just updated the post with some sources. This one looks very similar and is sold in sets of 2: http://shrsl.com/12oub Hope this helps. Keep checking back as I am updating these older posts with updated info. 🙂
What company did the furniture for Sol and Robert’s new bedroom in their new house?
Great question! I’ll do some research on the new house and bedroom. Thanks for reading!
Where did the canopy come from for the beach funeral scene?
I’ll start searching – thanks for visiting.
What’s type of hardwood does the beach house have. We’re trying to emulate the look but we can’t figure out the best flooring.
It looks like walnut or a walnut stain. Here’s a 7″ wide plank hardwood with that look: http://shrsl.com/17y00 or this 7″plank engineered option (not laminate, but engineered can be even more stable than solid wood) at a lower price point: http://shrsl.com/17y04. Hope this helps.
I am coming close to finishing my remodel using the beach house as inspiration. I have a small bathroom that I would like to use the blue grass cloth that Sol & Robert had in their first house. I have been unable to locate anything. Do you have any insight or links? I have ordered several samples, but none appear to have the same depth and tone.
Hmmmmm. Was it in the dining room of the old house above the white paneled walls? Was it something like this: http://shrsl.com/1e1oh ?? I’ll keep looking.
Thanks. I have looked all over and ordered several samples. I was hoping to find it with some of the color variation.
Hi, I have read previous comments and was also wondering about the color of the kitchen cabinets and backsplash color theme?
In the first interior photo on this post, there is the Rope Lace Chair and 2 gently arched-back upholstered chairs. I am looking for the source for the archec-back chairs. Can you help? Thanks in Advance
Those chairs are awesome, and I haven’t found the source yet – here’s one that is similar, though a little more sophisticated and without the arched back: http://shrsl.com/1exhu I’ll keep searching. 🙂
Does anyone know the color of the kitchen cabinets in the beach house on Grace and Frankie? It’s absolutely gorgeous and I’d love that color on my cabinets. Thanks
I have some great ideas in this updated post about the beach house here…keep scrolling down the post and you’ll see paint color options: https://www.hellolovelystudio.com/2019/01/grace-and-frankie-beach-house-decor-paint-ideas.html
The shades of blue you posted for the walls don’t quite look the same. Have you heard back from the set designer yet? I was hoping to know the exact color.
I haven’t heard from the set designer. Here’s the thing about my suggestions – I actually pored over a ton of images and screenshots online to get an approximation – and you would be shocked at how the color looks different depending on the photo, lighting, etc. just like in real life. So we never know whether a paint color will work for us until we buy a sample and put a swath on the wall and watch it change with the light in our own geographical region. Does that make sense? The way that blue looks in Southern Cali is going to read differently in say Minnesota with Northern Exposure.
Anyone know who makes the rug in the foyer of Robert and Sol’s house? It is a kilim?
Where can I buy the bar stools and lien covers. I must have
Pottery Barn used to make a backless slipcovered bar stool, but I don’t think they carry them anymore. Your best bet may be to find a comfy backless stool (here’s a gorgeous linen one: http://shrsl.com/1f5vy) and then have an upholsterer make the custom cover. 🙂
I’m interested in the blue gray cabinet near the kitchen,(two drawers two doors) it’s in the blue sofa room I think.
I found some sideboards with the detail on this page: http://shrsl.com/1fm2x I’ll update the post if I find more items!
I am looking for the console/ sideboard with the diamond shaped detail on the top drawers. Any information on that piece?
I love that diamond detail. I found some sideboards with the detail on this page: http://shrsl.com/1fm2x I’ll update the post if I find more items!
I’m looking for the blue and white table runner on the dinner table. Can’t find.
Love this show and the decor. Where is the fabric for Robert and Sol’s kitchen in the first house from? Looks like a Roman shade ,maybe. Also would like to know the where the coffee table in the beach house is from 😊thanks!
Where can I find thee plantation style Adirondack chairs. I would like the same color
Thanks for reading! The chairs are Mint Green and here: http://shrsl.com/spz7
Love this house. I am looking for the high back counter stools with the white fabric with blue stripes. even if I can find the fabric it would be something to have made. Any ideas? The house is just spectacular. I have always had. fetish with beautiful wood work. Also would love to know the name of the white paint used through out.
Thank you so much!

Grace and Frankie is my go-to series of all times! I’m on round 5 of watching it! Is there a chance I could find out what company and share of blue the kitchen cabinets are at the beach house? I’d love to do mine in that shade. Thank you.
While we don’t know the exact blue paint color, I updated the post with possibilities – better to try samples in your own space since set lighting and even your computer/phone screen’s settings can affect the actual color we’re seeing. Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you’ll dig in my archives for more inspo!
Where can I find the whale and crossed oars hanging on the wall?
Not sure about the whale – but the oars are here: https://rstyle.me/+6Ig7w3ntjCRrp808tq8Ahg Thanks so much for reading.
Does anyone know where to find the dining chairs at Grace’s daughter, Brianna, house? Any chair similar to the style is what I’m looking for. Something comfortable! The seen when she meets her rescue dog shows great shots of it. Season 1; episode 7.
Thanks a bunch!!!
Hi Leslie. I’ll do some research and circle back here with what I find. Thanks for reading.
Does anyone know where to buy the gray drapes that are in Robert and Sol’s house?
I’ve been looking for wool southwestern-inspired throw pillows and love the ones in the show. Anyone know where they came from?
Did you see this other post where I link to Southwest pillows and decor related to Robert & Sol’s house? It’s here: https://www.hellolovelystudio.com/2019/01/my-birthday-robert-and-sols-house-random.html
Hello. There’s nothing in the link to Robert and Sol’s house related to their gray drapes.
Thanks for letting me know – I’ll check it out and try to fix it. 🙂
I added a couple of gray drape possibilities to the post (https://www.hellolovelystudio.com/2019/01/my-birthday-robert-and-sols-house-random.html) and am still on the hunt for the exact panels – thanks for reading.
Is there any way to find out the manufacturer of Robert and Sols leather couch?
The set decorator is Devorah Herbert. The leather sofa looks a lot like West Elm’s Urban sofa: https://rstyle.me/+M0IST5nM0EAJJ_aRT7ICDg, and this very similar Harman sofa looks amazing: https://rstyle.me/+opknLecyPYDo0tX6-Cv5dA. Hope this helps, and I’ll update the post with possibilities. 🙂
I love the orange lampbase on the shelf in Frankie and Grace’s house. Any ideas where to get one like this? Thank you
I’ll search for it today and circle back if I find the exact. So far, this one seems like it is in the same spirit: https://rstyle.me/+wOAKaXZvzzIsndoRmRKDug and I found other beachy options here: https://rstyle.me/+oTG7C7TiodXI_Rk-62vYBw Thanks so much for reading.
Can anyone find the teal and coral coffee cups used at the beach house (mostly by Grace)?
I need these in my life!
I love Frankie’s meditation room and would like to know more about it. Ever since the corona virus I have been watching the series. When I finished I just started watching again. It takes me to a happier place and time.😘
Isn’t it interesting how we now see everything through a new lens? I think I know what you mean – as I too have enjoyed re-watching certain shows. I’ll do some research with that meditation room. I actually have a zen room here at home, and maybe others will want ideas for creating one. 🙂
I love the orange and white armchairs in the beach house. Do you know the manufacture and name? I see something similar on Wayfair.com.
They are in the post (make sure you go back and see how many items are linked!) right here: https://rstyle.me/+jQzFBBR4OpIuLoj4R5pm0g Thanks for reading.
Looking for the boho pouf in Frankies Zen room.
Ahhh – wonder if it is vintage? This one reminds me of Frankie: https://rstyle.me/+5FgnYYcVxLanbbrqLm1dBQ, and I see some gorgeous options here: https://rstyle.me/+Oz1psHvPjLNyBTxjL4LaEg and here: https://rstyle.me/+-pwMf5AKFg3xmEpstfIdHQ
I absolutely adore the blue coral lamp! I wish I could find it!
I’ll keep hunting!
I’m looking for the wicker dining room chairs in Grace and Frankie’s beach house? Any idea where I can find them?
Here are some possibilities in the same spirit: https://rstyle.me/+EQNo3vuS4WYcOrXAW0ZBLA and these chairs which I own and love: https://rstyle.me/+WOGYKuX_1L1-PTETnSxf0g
I’ve been looked for the same door knobs on the kitchen cabinets and have exhausted my search, Matching the kitchen was easy thanks to you. Can you help with a source for the knobs, I was able to purchase the shell pulls.
Hi there. Thanks so much for reading. The cabinet knobs appear to be a simple Shaker design, wooden, and painted the same as cabinets. Something like this: https://rstyle.me/+HS3EB-pfpHaPjvCN4ODYuw Keep us posted about your progress, and best to you!
I want Grace’s Carolina Herrera yellow bird shirt!
ooooh – that may be harder to source!
Hi, I would love to find the really high- backed arm chair that was in early episodes-it was upholstered in a lovely French “word” fabric…..any ideas? I have searched to the ends of the internet to no avail……:-(
Here’s a low-priced accent chair with French script: https://rstyle.me/+0k7GyGRc_aZfo4Qimt6qtQ, but I wonder if the one you’re seeking is this one out of stock at the moment: https://rstyle.me/+wd34F8tguEa-kneLyvoVVA ? Let us know if you find it, and I’ll keep my eyes open.
Can you provide me any information on the wicker chairs at the kitchen table in the beach house? I love them!
See if you like any right here: https://rstyle.me/+lRq5k6OnD7krdOOGucMHCQ and also search for ‘kubu dining chair’ when shopping. My own grey rattan dining/patio chairs here at home are very comfortable and right here: https://rstyle.me/+hFmbeTYMiGG6FuGBUUAwSw
hi..on season 2, epi 12 , a chair in f&g’s living room appears to have a slipcover (in creamy color) on it..can u advise of the company that makes them??
The best slipcovered chairs I have lived with and loved are either from RH or PB here: https://rstyle.me/+XHFBMc1zmp2peb_4o-41OA
Where can I find the striped drapes used in the living room at the beach house?
I can’t picture them – I only know about the white linen panels hanging at patio doors – lots of pretty options here: https://rstyle.me/+AqVz8mBlna4HLERxeKPo-A
Hi, looking for the striped throw/blanket on the couch in G&F’s beach house. Anyone know where to purchase it?
If you can take a screenshot and email it to me: michele at hellolovelystudio dot com, I’ll try to source it for you. 🙂
I was able to see the screenshot (I have the best followers, and a kind soul sent it!). I’m searching for it so I’ll circle back if I find it. This rainbow stripe throw one has similar colors but a wider stripe: https://rstyle.me/+MK5DtX2uKkWu_zJJ1nFtsQ and this one also has those cheerful colors but a different pattern: https://rstyle.me/+bb5XGZPB28FxChO5X-pgdw. And for a wild card, here’s a quilt with amazing cheerful rainbow colors – I actually have it in a discontinued blue color, and it’s beautiful: https://www.garnethill.com/johanna-quilt-2c-sham-2c-26amp-3b-pillow-cover/117769?listIndex=27&uniqueId=117769
Michelle, you’re amazing!
I’m looking for the decor pillow that looked like it was red, white and blue that had a bird on it. It was on the couch in the beach house. Season 6, episode 6.
Are you able to find anything out about that?!?
Sounds like I’ll need to re-view the episode – I’ll work on it and see if I can dig it up, and thanks for visiting. 🙂
I’m having trouble finding the blue floral dishes. Does anyone know?
I’ll keep searching. 🙂
That is what I would love to have as well ❤️
I’m looking for Grace’s bedding in season 7
i have to watch and will try to source it!
Hi, I’m new to the show, do you have the manufacturer of the entry door in Sol and Robert’s house?
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’m dying for the desk in Brianna’s office. That wooden one with the gold legs. Gotta have it. Let me know. Love the site!
Thank you! I’ll keep browsing for the exact desk – it’s so chic. These are similar: https://rstyle.me/+eHNX3QSOaV73roOpzgbiyA and https://rstyle.me/+Snrf3pJccj2csBeQfQElZA
Hi Michele, I’m trying to find decent pictures and details of the Graces bedset in the beach house.
Was trying to get something similar for my room.
Do you have any idea?
Great question that I’m sure others are wondering about too – I’ll add it to my list to create a get the look post for that bedroom. Thanks so much for reading.
Michele, it is incredible how much work goes into a post like this! YOU ARE AMAZING! Hope you are doing well, happy summer.
Hi Elizabeth! Hope you are enjoying the summer too. Hahaha – feels like I have been to the ends of the internet and deep in the archives of OKL and Wayfair after all these years! Always updating and searching for more stuff fans of the show email me about. Super swamped with the reno this summer and wish I had more free time since my “breaks” from work are home improvement. Soon a vacation I hope!
Hi Michele! I love your site! I’m still watching the reruns and spend half the time drooling over the interior decorating!! Here is what I would love to know: What paint colour is that earthy sea-green in the dining room? I just love their use of color in the cottage.
Thanks so much,
Hi Joanna. Hmmmm. Wonder I see more blue in the dining room’s color, but it’s sort of an oceanic blue-green, yes? Take a peek at Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue or Sherwin-Williams Watery. If you favor greens, check out this: https://www.hellolovelystudio.com/2022/08/green-paint-colors-sage.html
