Whenever I watch family shows on TV, I observe and admire the talent of set designers. Once (when our kids were much younger and enjoyed watching Gilmore Girls) we visited Stars Hallow at the studios. The details (such as the collection of salt and pepper shakers in Lorelie’s house) were amazing. These days the ever-evolving family T.V. home decor seems to be either Craftsman or art gallery modern. Parenthood‘s Braverman “Berkley” residence, their (Craftsman) home for thirty years, is filled with hierlooms. Set decorator Julianne Getman aims for worn, comfortable, but without clutter such as scouring pads! Getman likes Benjamin Moore colors– green-gray Saybrook Sage, featured in Pottery Barn. I admit to copying experts when it comes to holiday decor. We’re empty nesters and don’t want our exterior to look overly juvenile anymore!
