  1. Linda,
    Do you have anymore information on the interior of this house? Where things were purchased, fabrics, trays, and artist for the art work etc. anything?

  2. I haven’t been able to track down this information. But, I can say that this subject gets the most hits of any other on my blog. So, there are a lot of people looking to get this look.

    If anyone finds sources for the actual furnishings, etc. Please come back and let us know!

  3. I just found your blog and can’t wait to read your entries.
    I know that some of the artwork in the Something’s Gotta Give set was done by Edward Henry Potthast. Here is an article that you might enjoy (it also gives more photos and info about the set):

    Also, there is an ebay store that sells movie props…the $ goes to charity. They’ve been selling small props from the movie for awhile now: http://stores.ebay.com/hollywoodcpr
    (No, I have nothing to do with them! Just thought some of your readers might like to see what they have…it’s hit or miss.)

  5. This is fabulous! I have looked all over for a designer who shows a look in the media and then shows you how to get the look. So great!

    Do you have any pictures and/or text about the bedroom for this movie?

  6. I haven’t done the bedroom yet – harder to find pics for it. But, I re-rented the dvd so I could watch it slowly and will do some posting on it asap. This is by far the most searched for topic on my blog!

  7. Linda thank you for your information it is great. i was going nuts trying to find the picture in her room of the swimmer. i know you said R kenton nelson do you know where I can purchase a print by chance? Thanks

  8. Hi Anon,
    As far as I can tell, there are no prints of R. Kenton Nelson’s work yet. He’s a contemporary painter (although his work looks older) and doesn’t seem to have licensed these rights yet. But, Mr. Nelson, if you’re reading… looks like a big market for you!

  9. I think some of the wicker trays and baskets and some of the glassware might be Simon Pearce. I think the bowl on the table in the living room might be the Shelburne Bowl.

  10. Linda I’m desperately looking for the black and white photo on the mantle in the movie Somthings GG. It’s in the scene when Jack Nicholson goes over to the mantle. Looking straight on, it’s to the right of the Swimmer painting. I’ve been looking for months now. It’s a black and white of a man’s forearm with many wrist watches on it. I need it for a Xmas gift.
    You can email me at Yayagal@comcast.net if you have any info or suggestions to how I can further search. Thank you.

  11. How wonderful to find information for the items in this great movie and also others that love the house like I do. I cannot for the life of me find any place that shows the exact picture over the fireplace by Potthast. If anyone has found that picture, you can contact me here….

  12. linda,
    A tid-bit on this house: The address of the actual house used for exterior shots is 576 meadow lane, southampton NY. It can be viewed pretty clearly on http://www.Zillow.com. Type in address and select different birdseye views. Enjoy!

  13. I have been searching everywhere for the wine goblets in the scene at the dining table at the home in the hamptoms. Can anyone give me any suggestions? I have looked everywhere. My email address is: lallen@bakerlaw.com.
    Thanks.

  14. Hi Anon – I don’t know about the wine goblets, but I feel like I’ve seen the information somewhere. I’ll see if I can find it or remember.

  15. I am looking for the fabric used for the throw pillows on the couch in the living room? anyone know specifically what was used? Would an email asking the designer James Radin be ok or do designers like to keep their work a "secret"? I love this house! Thank you for all of the info and hard work!

  16. Hi Aug 2 Anon – the fabrics look like Colefax & Fowler or possibly Cowtan & Tout, but I'm not really sure. You could contact James Radin, although he'd no the credited set decorator, that was Beth Rubino. But, James' website has many similar looks, so he might know!

  17. Thanks so much for all this info. It gives me hope that getting the look is possible…I was wondering if you knew what the color of the kitchen cabinets were. In most pictures of the kitchen it looks like it has a grey undertone whereas in one picture (sunlight shining in) it looks a little like cream.

  18. I just love this house! Can anyone tell me who the builder was? I would love to get the house plan! Thank you so much.

  19. Matty – I believe it was a faux finished floor, painted a dark color. It wasn't real wood because the scenery had to be moved in and out easily. The trickery of Hollywood!

  20. I was wondering if anyone knows what paint colours were used in this house/set? I love the blue tone in the bedroom and the shade of white used in the living room. Thanks so much. I too LOVE this house.

  21. Hi, for years now since this movie came out I've been searching the globe for the nickel plated lamp in the Master bedroom on the Rose Tarlow table. Any ideas of where I might find the lamp?
