Remember the Golden Girls? Off course you do. We just sat through ALL seasons again and loved them. And not just for the stories. I absolutely loved seeing that decor again. I remember loving those pastels when I saw the show first as a kid. The pale blues, tappid greens, peach pinks, matte beiges and the wicker… the wicker everywhere. But I want to bet you that wicker is hard on its way for a massive come back if it hasn’t arrived yet. And I think there will be enough room for a serious nod to the shoulder pad days. And I even think some relatives of the same pastels will be joining….
So maybe not exactly like this………
But more like this…
Yes I know, not wicker but ratan. Who made you king of woven furniture?
Don’t remember or know Lloyd Loom yet? Make a note of that name. It’s coming back!
Want to join me on the lanai?
Now where did I see these chairs before…….
In that case……
There you go….
I wonder what’s next…
Pink arches, glass beds, white high gloss tables and beige leather anyone?

Artists Brandi Roberts and Inaki Aliste Lizarralde draw the floor plans of TV homes. For example Eddie Monsoon’s townhouse from Absolutely Fabulous; the Golden Girls’ Miami bungalow, Frasier’s Seattle apartment , the NYC apartments from SATC, Friends and the Big Bang Theory and the offices of Stirling Cooper Draper Pryce.

Brandi Roberts sells the prints as art. In her own words:
“Fantasy Floor plans was born out of my love of drawing, pop culture and TV. My hand-drawn floor plans merge Pop Art with celebrity to make art that doesn’t just entertain, but captures the evolution of the American TV home over the last seven decades”.
I hear her! Many times have I tried to imagine the lay-out of Monica and Rachel’s great flat. or the lush place of Frasier in the show of the same name. Or come to think of it, the bungalow of the Golden Girls…. I even considered drawing them out myself on more than one occasion.

But as much as I love this idea, I immediately noticed some errors. I know I know, jealous much? But may I?
Saffron’s room in Ab Fab for instance… There are several scenes where it is clear that her door is in the middle of the room. Also, the room is in between at least two other rooms as there are also scenes with people passing her room. And Serge’s room is drawn at the left end of the hallway while in the scene where Eddy is considering knocking down the wall it is clear the room is immediately next to hers and the hallway leads straight into the door. But still, what a great idea and damn her for beating me to it……
