House Crush: the “Revenge” Beach House
I love the show Revenge. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a dishy night-time (melo)drama that is actually incredibly well produced, directed, acted and written. I think the difference between Revenge and other soap-dramas that have come and go over the years is that this one knows itself and delivers the right balance of cleverness, camp and enjoyable characters. And Nolan.
I could watch clips of Gabriel Mann’s Nolanisms and the accompanying 800 different smirks and eyerolls all damn day. Luckily, I’ve just discovered some other like-minded evil genius made an entire tumblr devoted to his expressions. It’s so wonderful.
I digress. What I’m here to talk about today is this beach house…
This is a cast with no shortage of attractive people. And I wasn’t able to grab any great sweeping screenshots of the rooms, but this set actually upstages some of the pretty characters. I see a small detail in the background on the lovely mix of comfy, rustic and vintage furniture, the built-in bookshelves, fireplace or porch swing and it tugs at me.
I just WANT it.
I am happy to say that I do have one small piece of something that lives in the Revenge beach house already. They use my favorite mug in the show!
I’m drinking tea out of that mug right now!
