Something's Gotta Give: Kitchen


Hello sweets.

Now, where to start with this incredible kitchen from 
Something's Gotta Give?

And it is utterly incredible, isn't it?


Can you believe that this was a film set, 
and not even a real house on the inside?

The Something's Gotta Give kitchen 
is my favourite room in the film.


I posted these images before here and hesitated to repeat them
but I could hardly leave the kitchen out now, could I?!


If I had to pick a kitchen 
from any film in the world, 
I'd pick this one.


I love the matte soapstone worktops and the white Shaker units.



The subway tiles and the hardware.


The inset sink and the pendant lights.


The books in the island and the moulded top-cabinet supports.


The taps and the windows.


It's like I've died and gone to heaven.



Yeah, I'll take it. Thanks very much....


 Now, who'd like a snoop around another utterly luscious room?
Yes, the Something's Gotta Give Master Bedroom...


And remember, next week, 
we'll take a look in more depth at 
How To Get The Look!

I love the home from that movie as well. What I love the most is the timeless quality. The movie was released years ago but the set still looks fresh.

Duni said...

Oh yes, I've always loved that kitchen! And Diane's style! I wish we had that much space. Our kitchen is...cozy ;-)

This was my inspiration pic for our kitchen...of course on a somewhat smaller scale ;) but I loved the hardware, tiles and faucet...that was do-able.
But, the master bedroom was one of my favourite rooms. There is a great piece of art in that room! Rambling...sorry.

Tricia @ A Rosy Note said...

That kitchen is amazing. Ohhh, only in my dreams.

Belinda @ Wild Acre said...

I just love the idea of a kitchen with what is in effect a sitting room attached, how sociable, how lovely, how totally out of my reach!!! Love those subway tiles too and white with darker elements, yep, it's gorgeous! xx

Diana said...

This is my all time favorite movie because of that house and that kitchen! I even built a plate cabinet to based on the one in the dining room in the movie!!

Shelly @ Life on the Wild Side said...

I remember the first time I saw that movie and fell in love with that kitchen. It is absolutely gorgeous.

I have soapstone countertops in my kitchen and I absolutely love them. They just make me happy in their rustic-ness. :)

The house, the kitchen, the actors, the plot ...
everything is so nice!!!

I loved this kitchen for many reasons, the off white cabinets, the honed counters, and the friendly feel of the room. I think it is a look that is easily replicated, obviously on a smaller scale, and classic. We recently updated our own kitchen and used subway tiles, had the cabinets painted off white even though they look white, had leater finished granite in black installed and we did a few other things, all foe a very reasonable price.

I hope you have a great day!

Stitchfork said...

Oh yes - I could live with that kitchen!!

I've watched this film so many times just to ogle the 'house'. The kitchen is beyond heavenly. I also loved the casual elegance of Keaton's clothes in the films too.

GLENDA CHILDERS said...

I always have a small bookcase in my kitchen for cookbooks . . . but this kitchen has something I have always wanted . . . bookshelves built right into the island. Delicious.

Fondly,
Glenda

Karen said...

Well thanks to blog land I now know that I'm not the only one who notices the decorating in movies. I'm a big fan of old movies and I'm always picking out things in them I'd love to have. I'm in love with the house from this movie its one of my all time favorites.

adventuresindinner said...

I love this room. The mix between modern and traditional is so delicious.

A Cozy Cottage in the City said...

Yes that kitchen is mighty perfect!!! I have always adored that kitchen...too bad it is just a set - looks sooo real! lol **Someday** :)

XO's,
Jessie

Redlilocks {Swoon Worthy} said...

This has always been a favourite of mine as well - it's perfection, absolutely gorgeously modern and classic at the same time.

I have to admit, I wonder what I would possibly put in all those cupboards?! lol Can't imagine having that sort of room!

Babs said...

Love the kitchen! Love the whole house! Love the movie! I can't tell you how many times I've watched it, just to look at the house. Does anyone else do that?

I never tire of looking at this kitchen. I can hardly believe that it's not in a 'real' house...the attention to detail is amazing. You've got all us gals dreaming again!
Blessings,
Susie

Cindy said...

That really is the prettiest kitchen in the movie world. It says "family time" and "fun cooking time" to me.
Hugs, Cindy

Maria said...

MINE MINE MINE! Ok, I'll be nice and share, but I WANT the bench with the sink and the shelves with the books! So work around me ladies!Tee hee hee

lizzybradbury said...

Delicious kitchen, tell you what I'd like to do -- just sell my flat and buy that kitchen. I bet I could live in it, just shack-up on the island counter top, I would even have handy access to books for midnight reading - Oh I want this kitchen!

I can't want for the master bedroom. I watched this film ages ago, these posts are making me want to watch it again just so I can appreciate the house properly!

Magali @ The Little White House said...

Oh my! The books on the shelves of the island... Exactly what I need... Why oh why can't all that fit in my kitchen? Do you think people in my village would complain if I extended my kitchen on the road behind? By the way I haven't seen the film, but now I really have to watch it!

Anonymous said...

Very well done, yet the kitchen and conservatory in Practical Magic are my ideal.

vignette design said...

I'm days away from replacing my countertops so this post made me reconsider my options. I absolutely love this kitchen too. The countertops look like absolute black, but I guess they are soapstone? I'm trying to decide between the two! And of course, subway tile on the backsplash. I was going to put white marble (calacatta oro) on the island, now I'm all confused!

Mimi said...

This house is my most favorite of any movie. I feel like I could just move in. Love the colors, textures and view. Look forward to seeing more of it!

NauticalCottageBlog.com said...

One of my all time fav movies and the kitchen is divine - you have excellent taste!! :O)

Hugs,
Marie

Jill said...

One of my favourite films I could watch it over and over again just for the set and location!! Superb

Mary said...

Love this kitchen,it's so beautiful and spacious.I could really cook up some awesome dishes in it.

Susan T said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. As you say every element is pink perfection. I think we would need to extend the house somewhat to fit it all in, but boy am I up for it. Slight problem re funds though, husbands can be such a bore!

Lisa - A Room with A View said...

It is a perfect kitchen and the best thing about it is it's a working kitchen, it's being used (in the movie, of course).

Deborah March said...

I've heard that this is THE most replicated kitchen in film history...so I'd say you're among a great big crowd of discerning kitchen-lovers!

Deborah (visiting happily from http://upcyclingmylife.blogspot.com...hope you'll drop by and say hi!)

Bobbim said...

I've always liked the movie! and the house! and the kitchen... oh yea! I am redoing my kitchen now and have to come up with my final plans... had to look again at these photos! Recently, saw them in a magazine but couldn't remember which one, so decided to look on line! Thanks for the pix!!!

I found this wonderful place that sells the beachhouse art from "Something's Gotta Give." They did the Rockaway Beach for me. www.CanvasReplicas.com
