Something’s Gotta Give is a 2003 American romantic comedy film written, produced and directed by Nancy Meyers. It stars Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton as a successful 60-something and 50-something, who find love for each other in later life, despite being complete opposites.
A sunday afternoon romantic movie that melts our heart and the heart of all design lovers that wish to have the same décor as the set of the movie!
Nancy “has established a trademark kitchen and home aesthetic for each of her lead characters over the years, and the decor from her many films has, in fact, become the thing of Pinterest lore. Common threads include cream-and-neutral-toned cabinetry, charmingly worn-but-clean whitewashed bookcases and shelves, and large French windows with unobstructed views of well-manicured backyards, pools, and hedges”, she claims.
“Neutrals create a cozy atmosphere and bring a sense of sanctuary (…) They diffuse the stresses of the world, offering restoration and balance – something we could all use a little more of.”
Curious fans with an eagle eye noticed immediately that her real life kitchen resembled the character Erica Barry’s from the movie Something’s Gotta Give – played by Diana Keaton, a divorced Broadway playwright who sometimes lives in an upscale Hamptons beach house. The double islands, cabinetry and windows with fresh plants are idential to to hitchen movie set.
HOW TO GET THE LOOK
1.UNDERSTAND THE STYLE SIGNATURE
We can see a contemporary styled kitchen with a bit og farmhouse-chic aesthetic into it, featuring two center islands, each of them with a different colored marble top that serve as a breakfast bar and a wooden cabinetry. Contemporary Style is hard to explain, since it is always evolving. Dating back to the 1970s, this style is unique because it borrows elements from many other aesthetics. In it, you can see nods to modern, traditional, art deco and even futuristic design. Nowadays, it can be defined by neutral colors, clean an curved lines and minimalism. Open spaces are also a strong architecture feature, that we can see here!
2. BE INSPIRED BY JAPANESE MODERNISM
We can see some features inspired by the Japanese modernism such as the use of natural materials of elements from nature. The texture of wood can pretty much be seen in any house in Japan. Natural Elements such as wood or plants are going to be one of teh number one trends for 2020. As you might already understood, Japanese Design is all about neutral colors, clean lines and less furniture pieces. Open spaces are a must, and this one featured in the image is a great example of how you can mimic their minimalistic desing.
