A Cougar's Den

I often find myself watching TV shows and not paying attention to the actual show but the set design- do you ever do that?

I started watching Cougar Town on ABC Wednesday nights (right after Modern Family which has got to be the funniest new show on TV, seriously has me rolling on the floor laughing) starring Courtney Cox, who by the way looks DAMN hot at 45. I'm not going to say for 45, because she looks damn hot for any age!



Back on the design part of this post- I am in love with her house! I mean the kitchen is open to the family room which is has two sets of french doors that open right out to an amazing backyard with a pool!!



please excuse the crappy photos, they were taken while watching the episodes online :)



Pretty white kitchen, loving those Thomas Paul covered chairs on the island.



Very Florida-like with the large palm trees and shell filled lamp. I like.


Last view of the family room, during the day



Now a question- what other TV shows should I be watching so I can see more pretty set design?

i thought the modern family houses were pretty amazing. esp. the ed bundy sofia varaga house.

omg, I love it! If you like midcentury modern, people go crazy for "Mad Men." I watch "Californication," and sometimes the sets are pretty great.

Stacy said...

Brothers and Sisters...I have to rewind a lot because I get so caught up in the details of the houses that I miss the dialogue! Great show for set design and a great drama.

Jaime said...

I don't watch this show but heard it was funny. Love the chairs in the living room!

Maybe Desperate Housewives?

LindsB said...

Stacy- I totally forgot about Brothers and Sisters, I love that show!

LindsB said...

Lilah- I did a post on Mad Men last month- that is another great one- very Dorthy Draper- Sister Parish-ish

Deliciously Organized said...

Great show! I've only seen one episode of that & Modern Family & liked them both. New fav though: Bored to Death. Amazing!

That sofa is fabulous!

I agree, I find myself looking at set designs a lot, or their clothes!

I have been thinking the same thing about this show! I love the kitchen ... they are totally copying me on kitchen reno elements ;-)

bluehydrangea said...

Dang girl!! I have been searching the web for pics of the set because I love it!! Never thought to take pics of the show...smart girl!!! I like the show but find myself more involved with the set....

Pink to Green said...

Yes! I find myself watching the show just to purvey the housewares; I find that I'm often distracted by set design. I know about posted about it before and it's not a show, but the movie Funny People had great set design. Also, I agree with the other comments, Mad Men is fun to watch for that sort of thing too!

Rachel said...

Great idea about the pictures! Love them!

And...Courtney Cox is totally underrated!

I love the lamp in the bedroom - I saw it online somewhere else...maybe Erin at Elements of Style posted it a while back? i've only watched the first episode and I squealed when I saw that lamp!

paula said...

what a great set. The Holiday is my fave movie, but I swear it probably has to do with the set more than the actual movie.

charm home said...

This show is hillarious. I love the set design too. It fits her personality perfectly. Whoever the set designer is did a great job.

Blueprint Bliss said...

I'm with Paula. Love the set of The Holiday.

And CC is hot!!

Donna said...

I do this all the time...I have watched movies over and over again just to research the set design!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog - I love comments!

sarah @ realestatestyle said...

I'm loving that lamp in the first pic!

Emily said...

It's so funny you posted this! A friend of mine told me to watch the show because the interior decor was amazing but I haven't had a chance! Now I have to DVR so I don't miss it again.

Also, love the tights! Feel I could never pull that off but you rocked em!

Kay* said...

what a coincidence! i just bought a palm plant for a corner of my apartment :) i love the burst of green it provides.

i've heard amazing things about the mad men set if you're into mcm. unfortunately a lot of shows i watch are reality (YIKES i know) so not much interiors to look at. Though I was watching Ugly Betty last week and noticed Wilimena's dining table at home looked just like the ram's head coffee table I blogged months ago....

btw i too love Modern Family. Best new comedy of the season!

Mi Vida Bonita said...

i missed the first few episodes, but now I am hooked. Love this show, and modern family before it is so FUNNY! I DVR them both. I don't know what I would do without DVR.

Her kitchen, I LOVE.

Stephanie Sabbe said...

love that you posted monica in her undies.

I like the set too. I noticed her kitchen in the one episode I watched

L.Duncan@home23duncanboys said...

You know what? I was trying to figure out how I can get my kitchen to look like that! And I was going to suggest 'Brothers and Sisters' too.

Victoria of design my life said...

i guess i'm not alone in enjoying tv houses sometimes more than the show! just found your blog and love it, thanks!

Ashley said...

Gossip Girl most definitely!

Michelle said...

aha, I do the same thing! My husband thinks it is hysterical, he says, what is happening, and I say, no idea, but that chair is killer!!!

Brooke said...

Brothers and Sisters definitely, The Holiday, and Something's Got to Give are my top 3. But I also just saw a preview of a movie where every scene had pause worthy rooms, you must see it when in comes out. It's called "It's Complicated" and stars a million people; Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, Rita Wilson, Allie Wentwork and Jon Krasinski. (<--Who was actually sitting across the aisle from me in the theater!) Everyone should see it when it comes out, very cute, lots of laughs and AMAZING sets. It was almost distracting!
