Nip/Tuck Set Design Secrets (via purecontemporary)
I came across this great site for everything you wanted to know regarding the set designs done for Nip/Tuck. The site posted some Q/A with Ellen Brill, Nip/Tuck's set designer.
Our readers can't get enough of the modern furnishings on the FX hit Nip/Tuck. Set designer Ellen Brill fills us in on Sean, Christian, and Kimber's bedroom secrets...
Where can I purchase the white bedroom in Kimbers apartment?
Most of of the furniture in Kimber's apartment is vintage, purchased at a few different stores in LA. The custom-made bed was inspired by the beds used at the Maison 140 hotel in LA.
Where can I find the white platform bed in Christian's apartment on Nip/Tuck?
The platform bed in Christian's is also custom designed and made.
We are looking for info on the bed (name, company etc) in Sean's bedroom?
The bed in Sean's room is by Michael Berman Limited, located in LA as well.
Stay tuned for mod makeovers as the doctor's move from Miami to LA...

The reductive environment has had an interesting effect on Brill and some of her colleagues. "Our photography director disliked modern when we started the show. But now, after working in it everyday, he wants to re-do his entire house. I find working on this set has made me thoughtful of my own decor. I saw a candle on a table at home, and thought, I don't need this."
