Apartment Decor Based On Your Favorite TV Shows

When you get invested into a TV show, you invite those characters into your home and they invite you into theirs.  You may even feel like they are a member of your family. You become connected to their storylines and go through the ups and downs of their lives along with them. You see many different types of styles on television whether it is clothing, food, or even apartment/home decor. Have you ever wanted to decorate your home like your favorite shows? Well now you can! 

1.Friends

Most of us may agree that Monica’s apartment is one of the most recognizable sets in television history. Her apartment is where the 6 friends spend most of their time together, when they are not getting their daily cup of coffee at Central Perk, and it is the perfect place to just hang out. If you want to create the same vibe for you and your friends, check out Cute Furniture’s article on how to “Decorate An Apartment In F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Style – Monica’s Place”. Also, let’s be real. You cannot forget the iconic yellow picture frame to add to your front door as the finishing touch! You can find that here on Amazon! 

2.Golden Girls

“Picture it. Sicily. 1922.” Golden Girls is just one of those feel good shows that can bring a smile to your face after a long day. While the 4 women had very different personalities, their decor throughout the house seemed to suit each of them well. For years we saw them laugh, cry, and argue in the many different rooms of their Floridian home. If you are a Golden Girls fan and are into more of an old-school fashion look, Apartment Therapy breaks down each of the rooms pictured in the show and links where you can find replicas of the furniture!  

3.Mad Men

Mad Men is a show based in the 1960’s so if you are into a dated but modern style, you may want to take some decorating notes from Don Draper. Apartment Therapy’s article “Mad Men Shop Set Home Decor” gives us a guide to stepping foot into the Mad Men world. While the furniture is a bit on the pricey side, there is no need to fear! LivingSpaces.com shares “11 Retro Furniture Types” and links to the stores where you can find 1960’s inspired items for all price ranges! 

4.Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Fans of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt know that she and her roommate, Titus, have a very fun, bright, and quirky style which matches their lovable personalities. If you need a little color in your life…ok a lot of color… replicating Kimmy’s style is the move for you. ElleDecor gives us a guide of how you can bring this eccentric style into your own home! 

Gilmore Girls, Frasier, New Girl, That 70’s show, just to name a few, are some of the many television shows that can totally inspire your apartment decor along with these 4 staples in television!  Why live vicariously through your favorite characters when you can bring a piece of their world into your own? Happy decorating!

A Holiday Bucket List For You!

The holidays have officially arrived! 2019 flew by but it is not over yet. If there are any outstanding tasks that you wanted to complete this year but just have not had the chance to do, add it to your holiday bucket list! Bucket lists are lists created with items you want to get done by a certain time. Take some time to sit down to write yours out and let’s get 2020 off to a good start!

1. De-clutter

Let’s face it. Over the course of a year, a lot of material items can start to build up. Try to find some free time to set aside to go through each room and dispose of items that you no longer want or need. If you need some inspiration, check out Marie Kondo’s Netflix show, “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.” 

2. Catch up with the people who mean the most

We all have busy lives which sometimes makes it difficult to make time to see our friends and family. Luckily, the holidays are all about celebrating with the ones that you love! Call your loved ones and find time in your busy schedule to meet up. Whether it’s for dinner or a quick cup of coffee, seeing those who make you happy is sure to boost your mood and make the start of your new year a positive one! 

3. Take time for yourself

Most of us have tried to set aside time for ourselves somewhere during the year but things come up that need your attention. It’s totally understandable. During the holiday season, make it a priority to spoil yourself even if it just for one night. Take a bubble bath, have a glass of wine, meditate, do a face mask– no matter what you decide to do, make sure it is something relaxing that can help you feel refreshed in time for the new year!

4. Enjoy all the holidays have to offer

Take time to enjoy all the moments that come along with the holiday season! Enjoy the sweet aroma of baking cookies or the smell of peppermint coffee. Watch your favorite Holiday movies, snuggled up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate. Take a walk to look at all of the twinkling lights in your neighborhood. Enjoy the Santa Paws events that are local to you for you and your fur baby, like the week-long event being hosted at out DREAM, PROSPER and LIVE brand communities this week! Little things like this only come around during the holiday season so take advantage while you can! 

5. Budget for the new year

It’s never too soon to start planning ahead! Sit down and plan your budget for 2020. This is a good way to help you save and allow yourself to still get what you need/want without overspending! 

The holidays are such a fun time of year! Surround yourself with the ones that you love and take time to focus on yourself. 2020 is just around the corner so let’s make it a great year… and DECADE!
