The home of...... Frankie and Sol Bergstein (Grace and Frankie)

Frankie and Sol Bergstein in their California Hills home (Grace and Frankie season1)

Today is valentines day and as sadly I am working a night shift, I thought I would share with you all a little something special....... The home of the Bergstein's aka Frankie and Sol, from the Netflix Show Grace and Frankie.

Dont get me wrong the beach house is nice and all but Frankies house is where its at!! I have been meaning to do a post of Frankie and Sol's beautiful home since the first series came out 5 years ago (May 2015 to be exact), so here it is courtesy of some slightly dodgy screenshots from my ipad, haha! There are a fair few of the living room as that stunning mustard couch, mud cloth cusions and sculptures are just so special.

Grace and Frankie

The interiors for the prgramme were designed by Beuchamp Fontaine (can i have this job please!), who beleived that "Sol and Frankie Bergsteins home would have been inspired by their travels and love of art rather than any desire to keep up with the latest trends..... I imagine they brought most of their furniture when Sol first started making money and would have never replaced it"

The real home belonged to a ceramist and a sculpturist and many of the items were from their personal collection. Other items were from Omega Cinema Props.

The home of.... Instagrammer Lisa Loves Vintage

Since Grace and Frankie began I have been dreaming of a beautiful blue kitchen like the one in that dreamy beach house, but have been a bit scared by the thought of such a dark colour in my otherwise very white walled house.

A few weeks ago I came across the Birmingham (UK) home of Instagrammer Lisa Piddington aka Lisa_loves_vintage and my obsession with painting my kitchen blue was reignighted. I just love that rich colour and pared with some green sploshes and house plants, it really works and doesnt fall into the trap of being too gloomy.

I love it..... what do you think?
