As one of America’s longest-running television shows, aThe Simpsons‘ brightly colored living room is as familiar to most of us as our own digs. But as Today reports, it might be time for a makeover.teamed up with NeoMam Studios to reimagine the iconic space in different popular home decor styles.
The HomeAdvisor blog notes, “As a power plant employee, Homer would feel right at home in an industrial living room. It’s all about exposed brickwork, wood, and metal, which offer the room a rustic yet stylish feel. Ornamental abstract art, simple but elegant light fixtures and grey paint tones finish off the space perfectly.”
Coastal-style living areas are perfect for people who want the look of a beach house without the commitment. Go for colors like blue and white, and accents like tropical plants and shells. A photo of the ocean will make you feel like you’re beachside, even if you’re seconds from having a car crash through your living room as the opening credits roll. (What, that’s not a real thing?)
As the blog points out, Lisa is the Simpson that’s most likely to go for a bohemian vibe. For a carefree look, go for “vintage furniture, exotic rugs, and decorations from around the world,” as well as “rich, vibrant colors, and a purposefully messy layout.”
“This style is all about mixing and matching finishes, colors, and styles. Vintage furniture, wall hangings and floral accessories would give the Simpsons’ living room a more stylish – though equally casual – feel,” HomeAdvisor’s blog noted.
If the Simpsons ever felt like going Hollywood― they do have their own movie, after all ― the family should choose luxurious fabrics, clean lines, and a fabulous black-and-white tiled floor.
This style encompasses architecture from the middle of the 20th century, specifically 1947 to 1957, according to Curbed. Mid-century modern tends to be on the minimalist side, but with more colors. “Mustard yellow, green and even carnation pink are popular choices. Clean lines and sleek furniture tie everything together,” the blog says.
