'Somethings Gotta Give' Beachy Style

I have to rate the "Somethings Gotta Give" living room as one of my top living rooms ever! I have noticed a few places here and there that seem to be selling a similar style. Here's some of my ideas to re-create this comfy, casual beach retreat!
I think the best way to capture the style of art shown on "Somethings Gotta Give" would be to use vintage travel posters... I'm not saying you have to spend hundreds on the real thing! Try ebay, etsy, and other poster sites to search for a vintage piece that speaks to you and gives the bold pops of colour like we see in SGG! I saw this one on ebay for less than 20 buckeroos!
You gotta have a striped rug right??!!?? This one is from Pottery Barn, for an 8x10 size you'll pay $169.00. They have a couple of other look-a-likes you might want to look at also.
This gorgeous sofa table from Bellacor has the feel of an antique/cottage console without the price.
I found a sofa table rather than a console, because they seem to runner narrower and longer.
This beauty is only $267.95 with free shipping.

Table Lamp - Antique Bronze

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw these table lamps in Target. They are just $31.99 a piece and look spookily similar to the "Somethings Gotta Give" room! I know the shades aren't exact...but come on... $31.99 peeps! is the must see place for pillows. These perfect "SGG" pillows are handmade, by a mother daughter duo and are a fantastic $35.00 for both.
Carlisle Sofa
 Okay, so here's the splurge... but if your gonna splurge it might as well be on the piece that should last the longest right?? The Carlisle sofa from Pottery Barn has a traditional English rolled arm sofa feel with a loose slip covering for a casual beach cottage feel... paired up with some etsy pillows it is practically identical to our inspiration room! be continued I guess.... 'gotta' go put dinner on the table! lol

  1. I looked all over for the Rockaway Beach painting and others from Somethings Gotta Give and finally found someone who would do them. Canvas replicas. If you are looking for the art from the beach house they will do it. Great beach house, great movie!
