It’s character inspiration time!
How many times have we gone up to the napkins range at the supermarket and said to ourselves ‘Well, these are too pretty. They will go straight into the Fancy Guests’ pile’, after all there’s a little bit of Monica or Rachel in all of us. Not just those two but all of these six characters have been a permanent part of our lives for a very long time.
We may not open a Central Perk café or plan a FRIEND’s themed bridal shower but directly or indirectly they are reflected in many of our life decisions including one of the most important ones including *cough cough* our decor.
Here are the ways we imagine our FRIENDS characters would plan their décor. Can you pick out which is Monica and which is Phoebe?
- A little bit of Monica in my life:
Monica: The chef and the OCD queen. She is also the ultimate hostess, a pillar of warmth and hospitality. Her happy place is obviously, Her Kitchen!
Monica has a definite and appealing sense of style. She may not be a fashionista but she sure knows her decor. The contemporary classic kitchen style represents Monica to the core with its clean and efficient lines defining the decor neatly, along with traditional touches accentuated by the warm colors and old wood furnishings giving it a clean, shiny but also a happy look.
Her chef hat and 11 categories of towels are neatly placed in the cabinets and are the quirks that make her Monica and obviously, she has a closet full of china.
- A little bit of Rachel by my side:
Rachel: The fashionista, the prom queen, the pampered child who eventually grows into her own. Rachel is the beautiful, compassionate if slightly naïve, best friend of Monica’s, who decides to make it out on her own in this world.
Rachel’s primary interest all through her life has been fashion and no need to mention, her sense of style is exquisite be it clothes or decor.
The modern and feminine design is completely Rachel as she is fashion conscious but always adds her touch of delicacy and warmth to the mix. The contemporary furniture complemented with pastel colors and tiny pops of color here and there really suit Rachel. The closet full of fine clothes, film noir posters and the Little Women on the shelf are all the little things Rachel she needs by her side.
- A little Phoebe’s all we need:
Phoebe: The ditsy, amusing and colourful masseuse, who is also a part time telemarketer, cop and a million other things.
Phoebe is all about color and fun, so why should her décor be an exception? The bursts of different shades and patterns throughout the living room are so Phoebe. The open and wide Bohemian design coupled with mystical artworks and vintage phone complete the look. Obviously, there a lot of candles and scented trays in the room; she needs some peaceful ambience to write original works of poetry, like the ‘Smelly cat’.
- A little bit of Chandler is what we see:
Chandler: The sarcastic, funny copywriter, whose glass is always half empty. Chandler is known for his dry wit and sense of humour and why should his décor not carry the essence of his unique and fun personality?
The no fuss, clutter-free bedroom lined with his basic essentials like bed, books and of course the Pacman machine is essentially, the cut and dry Chandler. The sassy, ‘I don’t give a shit’, desktop frame from Hashtag Décor suits him utterly and yes, his wall is a collage of superhero and comic book posters, because even big boys need their toys.
- A little bit of Joey in the room.
Joey: Sweet, if a little dim but lovable Joey is an actor who loves his television and his pizza. Joey is a little child trapped in an attractive Italian fully grown womanizer and his décor reflects his playful and cool attitude.
The bright and vivid color pallete coupled with lots of ceramic artworks, give the room a retro and vintage look that is entirely Joey. Needless to mention the big, fat leather chair, huge television and foosball table in the room because wherever Joey is, they will be.
- A little bit of Ross, here it is:
Ross: the dinosaur loving nerd, who falls in love a little too fast and a little too easy. Ross is a palaeontologist, who loves studying evolution and the nature in its entire plethora; his rustic, jagged vintage looking home study replicates these tastes wholly.
The old wood furnishings and dinosaur artefacts complete the rustic look and the portraits of Rachel and Emma mirror truly the devoted father he is. The lovely nature, wall and desktop panels by Hashtag Décor, also give it an overall calm and serene look. There is an Apollo 11 model on his desk, which is obviously a reminder; he was and will always be a proud geek at heart.
