Tour the set: Grace and Frankie

By: Lauren McPhillips

Any show featuring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin is sure to be a hit, but Netflix’s new original series Grace and Frankie isn’t just building a fan base because of its razor-sharp dialogue and entertaining storylines. A contrasting combination of traditional Hollywood Regency and beach house chic, the show’s beautiful sets are causing just as much chatter as the leading ladies themselves.

Step inside the set of Grace and Frankie and grab inspiration for your next decorating project, whether it’s to recreate the classic chic design of the Hanson’s San Diego home or build a serene beachy space that looks like it stepped right out of a Nancy Meyer’s film.

Beach house kitchen

One of the showstopper rooms of the series, the kitchen in Grace and Frankie’s beach house is a space that dreams are made of. With a giant butcher’s block island, industrial lights and dusty navy hues contrasted against rich creams, it’s the perfect kitchen for a seaside getaway.

Beach house living room

Moving into the beach house living room, the set designers have brought together the best of the show’s two design styles. Slipcovered chairs and wicker furniture give the space a beachy, relaxed vibe, whilst the cream panelled walls and rich wood flooring speak to the traditional style of the Hanson’s San Diego home.

Beach house dining room

Grabbing inspiration from California’s natural landscape, the beach house dining room combines the blues of the ocean, the whites of the sand and the rustic look of raw driftwood. Recreate a tranquil space in your own home by mixing earthy tones with creamy neutrals and sourcing reclaimed furniture.

Beach house den

The den just off the beach house’s kitchen and dining space continues with the muted, natural hues and beachy decor, adding a pop of colour and pattern in the chair fabric. A rope-coiled orb chandelier and netted glass lamp add a nautical touch, whilst the California shutters and French doors blur the lines between indoors and out.

Hanson dining room

One look at the Hanson dining room and you know this is where many a stylish dinner party goes down. With rich jewel tones in the wallpaper and dining chairs, contrasting cream wainscoting, beautiful brass sconces and an oriental rug underfoot, this dining room is the perfect example of a traditional space with a classic edge.

Robert and Sol’s bedroom

Robert and Sol’s well-designed bedroom is proof that masculine decor doesn’t have to equal dark and drab. Whilst the coffee-coloured leather headboard is a staple of masculine decor, the bronze wall sconces offer a sophisticated bedside lighting solution and the graphic wallpaper introduces pattern without adding femininity.

Hanson living room

The kitchen off the living room in the Hanson’s San Diego pad is another example of how the set designers of Grace and Frankie marry the beach house look with a more traditional decor. Monochrome walls that bleed into the raftered ceiling and farmhouse cabinetry are contrasted against the Hollywood Regency styleof the living room, with its brass ‘n’ glass furniture, velvety fabrics and classic wingback chair.
