"Something's Gotta Give" Inspire Jim and Phoebe Howard for House Beautiful's Showhouse Apartment

Living Room from Something's Gotta Give.
 Something's Gotta Give is one of my favorite movies not only because of the charming storyline, but because of the gorgeous, oceanfront Hamptons cottage setting.  The style is similar to that of my first employers, the uber talented design duo Phoebe and Jim HowardHouse Beautiful commissioned the Howard's to create their Designer Vision's apartment in The Setai Fifth Avenue, Manhattan's newest luxury hotel and apartment high rise.  Classic movie sets was the theme of this year's Designer Vision's so naturally the Howard's chose Something's Gotta Give as their cinematic inspiration.  The Howard's did a beautiful job and you can check it out in the November issue of House Beautiful

A subtle palate makes this living room blend in with the sky view. 
The high gloss ceiling adds glamour.

This Dining Room is elegant and contemporary. 
I especially like the drum pendant from John Rosselli.

Phoebe Howard knows how to set a pretty table. 
William Yeoward china and crystal used above.

Greys and mushroom tones make Harry's Study
masculine without being too dark.

Notice the Empire State Building view!

This bookcase adds height and
makes good use of vertical space.

The simplicity of the Kitchen table
 does not distract from the fabulous view.

The icy colors and soft, lush fabrics
 make the Master Bedroom dreamy.

My favorite parts of the Nursery are the
shaped valance and the canopy. 
Both bring your eye up to allude more height.
