Have you seen the movie Something's Gotta Give, starring Diane Keaton, Jack
Nicholson and Keanu Reeves? Do you remember the lovely beach house?
It was put together especially for the film. Each room was designed to fit
her character, a divorced, very successful playwright in her mid 50s.
The film director, Nancy Meyers asked set decorator Beth Rubino to create
a large Hamptons house with the sense of ocean everywhere. The interiors
are full os sandy beach colours and sea blues.
For two and a half months. people lived and worked here. It was a sad
moment when they had to tear it down. But this is Hollywood and that's just
how it is.
Diane Keaton was very enthusiastic when she saw the rooms of the Hollywood
set although she admitted they are not in her style. Tomorrow we will see what
she meant by this as I plan to show you the house where she actually lives!
Whether you've seen the movie or not, I hope you will still enjoy looking at
these lovely rooms!
