The ABC show, Modern Family, has received many accolades, as well it should: it’s pretty hilarious. I’ve recently caught a few episodes of Up All Night, the NBC comedy with Christina Appelgate and Will Arnett. It’s not as consistently funny as Modern Family, but I think it has potential.
But here’s the real question: which house (okay, set) do you like the best?
There are actually three houses to choose from on Modern Family, but for this waffle I’ve selected Phil and Claire Dunphy’s house (Phil is played by Ty Burrell and Claire is played by Julie Bowen). The designers seem to be going for a cozy, lived-in, Pottery Barn inspired look.
Here’s the Dunphey’s foyer. The blue color on the stairs is Benjamin Moore’s Blue Labrador — now a very popular paint color.
The kitchen comes with a paneled refrigerator, what looks like black granite countertops, and plenty of wine storage.
The living room has a comfortable vibe with lots of stripes and textures going on.
Here’s the master bedroom. I’m positive those sheets come from Pottery Barn because I almost bought them last year.
Here’s the bedroom shared by the Dunphy girls. Again, lots of color and pattern.
If the Dunphy house gets its’ design sense from Pottery Barn, then the Up All Night house is a mixture of Ikea and Room and Board — kind of a modern, retro, eclectic feel with lots of baby gear thrown in. The show follows Reagan — a producer for an Oprah-like talk show whose host is played by Maya Rudolph — and Christopher, a stay-at-home dad.
Here are a few shots of the kitchen. Those translucent cabinet doors mixed with open shelving make this room feel more contemporary.
The master bedroom has a soft but tailored look.
And finally the bathroom: lots of white tile and clean lines.
So what do you think? Which tv set best suits your own design tastes?
