Something's gotta give... Dining room inspiration




Yesterday, I listened in awe to The Skirted Roundtable discussion with Beth Rubino. Beth is an Academy award winning set designer for many movies including Something's Gotta Give and It's Complicated along with so many others. During the discussion Beth talked about her friend Diana's dining room being the inspiration for the dining room in Diane Keaton’s Hampton house in Something's Gotta Give. I knew that Beth was referring to Diana Salzburg's home that is in this book "American Farmhouses" by Leah Rosch and Photographed by Keith Scott Morton. The cover photograph is taken in Diana's front entrance .Unfortunately, I cannot find any pictures of the dining room on-line to share with you. If you have the book, Diana's house is featured on page 175 and is titled Country Artistry. The author states that the house is Cape Cod circa 1786 but I think the house is in Litchfield, CT. Diana's dining room display is tone on tone white ironstone that rest in built -in cabinets that date back to 1850. The book is so beautiful with the most amazing photography. Enjoy

Hi Kelly, thanks so much for continuing the conversation and even adding to it. Great information about the Diana Salzburg room. Hopefully we'll find a photo at some point.

Have a nice weekend!
