If the only marathons you do are on Netflix, than we can be friends.
I just binge watched The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and loved it. Now I am slowly appreciating Bloodline. Its dark and mysterious, the story hints at where it is going, but takes its time slowly unfolding all of the details. A couple friends and I were talking about it with mixed feelings. To sum up the feelings – the story is brilliant. The anticipation is endless. Angry “Coach” is hot. Danny is crazy which is awesome. The slow pace and things quietly being revealed seem to distract some, but most of us enjoy that.
Netflix Original Series: Bloodline
Start watching: for Coach Taylor (Friday Night Lights fans know who I am talking about)
Enjoy: the interiors and the beach scenes.
Keep watching for: the story line.
Being the designer that I am, I watch every show and notice the set design. EVERY time. The Rayburn House had me from day one. Yes the beaches of Florida are fantastic, but the house! The house is the perfect blend of Florida Fancy and generational home that has stood the test of time.
The Rayburn House Kitchen – blue upper cabinets with open shelves. The anchor towel holder! That mosaic back splash.
But the room that caught my attention was the dining room (just attached to the kitchen but seen from another view). I love the board and batten wall paneling with the grass cloth wallpaper above and the floral curtains.
I also managed to find a stunning horizontal striped curtain in green like we see in the adjoining room in the first picture. Now all we need to recreate this look is a beach in our back yard. I will get to work on that one.
If you are interested in staying in the actual house that Bloodline was filmed in, you are looking for the island chain of Islamorada, about 90 miles south of Miami. The Moorings Village & Spa is a bunaglow style home with outlying buildings to stay in as well. There are over 1000 feet of private beach. The Rayburn house is called Blue Charlotte House and costs $2500 per night and room for six guests. All the details can be found on the Moorings Village site.
Update: I have been informed that the production designer for the set of Bloodline is Scott P. Murphy Design based out of NYC. I will show you some more photos from their portfolio, but check out their site for more of this and other projects.
