How to Get the Look of Big Little Lies' Homes—Without the Price Tag

Big Little Lies — Get the Look
Hilary Bronwyn Gayle / HBO

Just like we fawned over Rachel and Monica's expansive Friends apartment a decade ago and gushed at the sight of Carrie Bradshaw's walk-through closet shortly thereafter, we've always had a fascination for TV interiors. Our latest TV real estate obsession: the beachfront manses that sprawl along the Monterrey Bay coastline in Big Little Lies. It's not that we weren't equally enthralled by the unraveling secrets of the sleepy California coastal town's well-heeled mommy brigade, but we couldn't help but catch a glimpse of a dreamy Hans Wegner chair here and a glossy Jonathan Adler chandelier there.

There's nothing wrong with grabbing décor inspiration from the homes of our favorite TV characters—we may even argue it makes a show just that much better (and it explains why we had a soft spot for Yolanda Foster over the other Housewives). Are you one of those people who would also love to shop for décor while watching your favorite TV show? We just made it insanely easy for you—shop our favorite picks from Big Little Lies' desirable digs.

Big Little Lies — Celeste's House

Celeste Wright's life may not be rosy, but there's no denying she has the most well-designed home of all: a delightful mix of midcentury classics and coastal staples overlooking the Pacific Ocean. While we wouldn't trade lives with her, we wouldn't say no to borrowing her rattan chair or Bertoia barstools.

Big Little Lies Decor
Jonathan Adler Meurice Rectangle Chandelier $1595

Hanging above Celeste's dining table is this exact Jonathan Adler chandelier. 

Palecek Vero Lounge Chair

Palecek Vero Lounge Chair (price on request)

The house was accented with modern rattan chairs, which infused a relaxed coastal vibe in Celeste's midcentury space.

Knoll Bertoia Counter Stool $1245 $1058

The Bertoia counter stools in her kitchen give the space a modern retro vibe. Just add blond wood cabinets and turquoise accents.

Big Little Lies — Madeline's House

Madeline Martha Mackenzie (don't forget the middle name) is your quintessential Goody Two-Shoes who must always appear picture-perfect (on the surface, at least). Her home is a classic New England style beach house filled with blue and white, classic bell pendants, and farmhouse sinks.

Hudson Valley Lighting Hampton Pendant $664 $564

If you liked Madeline's kitchen, you'll love these exact bell pendants that hang above her kitchen island.

Serena & Lily Perennials Ticking Stripe Pillow Cover $88

Add a dose of blue-and-white ticking stripes to give the space a quintessential beach-house feel.

Serena & Lily Riviera Stools $328

These woven rattan counter stools would feel right at home in her heart-of-the-home kitchen. 

Big Little Lies — Renata's House

Renata Klein is your typical high-powered Silicon Valley exec, and her house reflects exactly that: It's sparse, expansive, and luxe. For her, the only items that should make it into her contemporary double-story living room are showstoppers: a Hans Wegner armchair, a curved leather sofa, and a marble coffee table (accented with brightly colored pieces).

Hans Wegner Ox Chair $8706

We think the exact lounge chair that sits in Renata's living room looks better in this peachy leather.

CB2 Smart Round Marble Top Coffee Table $379

To get the marble table look without the high price tag, pick up this number from CB2.

Caleb Siemon Cumulo Large Barrel Vase $850

Instead of a blown glass sculpture, we love the idea of a vase. After all, this exec's decorative accents should also be practical.
