Did anyone else watch the premiere episode of Revenge last night? I know it’s been on in the US for a few months, so if this is old news to you then please humour me as I talk about the gorgeous houses in the show (supposedly set in the Hamptons but apparently actually filmed in North Carolina and L.A.) In Melbourne we have been bombarded with advertising for this program for the past several weeks, and I knew from the glimpses of the houses that I’d be watching for that reason alone! (the show turned out to be pretty good so far too)..
The imposing Hamptons facade of ‘Grayson Manor’.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who gasped at the sight of the amazing timber panelling and staircase in the foyer!
And then at the kitchen and living room – you can see the ‘Van Gogh’ painting that features in the first episode in the background. It’s hard to see here but the kitchen splashback tiles behind the stove in the kitchen were such a gorgeous shimmery pale blue/sea green.
The real house where these interior scenes were filmed was featured in Wrightsville Beach magazine (shown below but see the magazine here for the full story – the house is a dream)
And here are a couple of shots from the next episode to come (thank you hooked on houses blog!):
For anyone who loved Hamptons style (and there are a lot of us out there) I’m sure this show will be a must-watch!
Also on the topic of tv (and nothing to do with decorating), I am really loving My Kitchen Rules at the moment. Wasn’t it great last night when Nic and Rocco did so well?
