1 On the walls
Production designer Cabot McMullen wanted a neutral base for the room, so he picked Benjamin Moore’s ”Bleecker Beige” in eggshell.

2 Lighting it up
The design team tried to keep it real in decorating Jules’ home. ”She probably has the money to buy a few really nice things, and everything else would come from a more affordable source,” McMullen says. The ”Eva” clear glass lamp, for instance, is from Pottery Barn ($99; potterybarn.com).

3 Flower power
Co-creator and coexec producer Kevin Biegel wanted floral decor — like the Brunschwig & Fils fabric used to cover these chairs. ”In Florida there are flower prints on everything.”

4 In the navy
The designers picked Roberta Roller Rabbit throw pillows ($40; robertarollerrabbit.com) for their coastal feel.

5 A tropical touch
It wasn’t a rug that tied the room together but this coral-hued couch, which the team refurbished with a Diamond Fabric print. ”The color can be found in the painting, seashells, and arm-chairs,” McMullen points out.

6 Hanging up
The bamboo rack was a vintage find from L.A. furniture shop Wertz Brothers. ”The natural materials were very important,” says McMullen. ”We didn’t want to make it look like a place in L.A.”

7 Spell it out
The sign in Jules’ kitchen — a fan favorite — was created using ”Flares and Fountains” fabric letters ($14 each; antropologie.com).

8 Natural neutrals
”There’s actually a fair amount of wicker,” McMullen says about the house in general, and these Crate & Barrel ”Captiva Kubu” dining chairs specifically. ”It’s part of the tropical accessorizing that we were after” ($1,349 for set of six; crateandbarrel.com).

9 Kitchen comfort
The crew upholstered IKEA ”Henriksdal” chairs ($80; ikea.com) with Diamond Fabric Private Label’s ”Aviary” in Robin ($25 per yard; 323-931-8148).

10 And about that wine…
Jules loves her vino (served in Crate & Barrel and Bed Bath & Beyond stemware), and so do the crew, who play a ”spot the seashell” drinking game. ”I swear, in every scene, someplace in the background, there are seashells,” Biegel laughs.
