Ideal setting

I have seen the movie Something's Gotta Give so many times I have lost count. It is not because I am huge Jack Nicholson fan or a die hard Diane Keaton follower and it isn't because the movie was one of the most award-winning films of 2003. The fact is- I am in love with the main character's house. It is an amazing beach home, the epitome of luxurious coastal living and I would watch that film over and over just to get glimpses of the rooms, the furniture, the palette , the accessories.....see for yourself.

The whole house is just so calming and comfortable , but light and airy. I decided to poke around and find out who designed the space. As it turns out I am certainly not the only person taken with the home- there were quite a few articles written about designer James Radin and his work. Radin was the filmmaker's interior designer and she brought him in to work with the set and production designers. The result is my ideal setting, so I had to take a peek at the rest of his work.
Interestingly, Radin also contributed to the 2006 film The Holiday- another movie I have watched time and again, getting lost in the rooms and admiring their details. The two living spaces below are from that film.

Radin's portfolio is a library of incredible images- these are just a few. I can't get enough of this guy. If only he did house calls....

  1. These spaces are great! So livable. And I love the pops of color.

  2. Wow, what gorgeous room images! Thanks for sharing them with us.

  3. Those are amazing! White is so hard to keep clean though with youngsters. What I wouldn't give for that closet and bath!

  4. No doubt - a very inspiring interior!
