Our favourite TV apartments

Our favourite TV apartments

Tom Haverford’s house, Parks and Rec: However much of an idiot he is, Tom Haverford does things in style. Including his crib. We really can’t make up our minds about this man’s house. Is it incredibly cool or incredibly gay that he has hand moisturiser and exfoliator lying around at random? Or a soft-as-a cloud-bed made with seven zillion thread count linen?

The studio guest house, Bunheads: Michelle from Bunheads moves into a studio apartment/garage so gorgeous that it made us cry (and that’s saying a lot, considering one of us works in an interiors magazine) Lamps shaped like bee hives, pale walls, a wicker rocking chair, a royal blue bathtub with Queen Anne legs, screen doors with a view.

Joey and Chandler’s, Friends : In stark contrast to the perpetually pretty apartment next door, Joey and Chandler’s apartment has gone through some good and bad phases. The wall unit that didn’t really fit, the barcaloungers, the replacement barcalounger with an attached ice box and speakers, the foosball table, the boat couch, the picture-of-a-baby-on-the-wall-and-potpourri-on the table, so many phases; so much personality.

House’s House, House MD (haha): Now this is a house we’d love to live in. Warm colour scheme, Books lining the walls= one million (approximate), Grand piano (one) and scotch (that never runs out). House’s apartment is pure class.

Sherlock Holmes’ house, Sherlock Holmes: 221 B Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes’ apartment is a mix of eclectic and confused genius. A printed wall with bullets lodged in it, a leather couch, a study table and human thumbs in the refrigerator. The apartment will tell you who the resident is even if you didn’t ask.

Six television couples we love

Six television couples we love

Matt and Harriet from Studio 60

There’s something deeply romantic about these two. She’s his beautiful, spirited muse. He falls to pieces and becomes a gibbering wreck without her. Politically, socially, spiritually they’re at complete odds. She’s a star comedienne and he’s a deeply talented humour writer, so that’s a lot of funny in one relationship. She’s conflicted, he is stubborn.  But there’s something deeply romantic about these two.

Andy and April from Parks and Rec

“We’re in love, we didn’t over think it. I mean, I cannot emphasis how LITTLE we thought about this.” Best. Wedding. Speech. Ever. April and Andy are really children playing at being married. They eat out of Frisbees because who needs plates, their role play involves an FBI agent and a rich, 1920’s widow and they get a bunch of medical tests done for fun, when they learn they have health insurance. And they’re the cutest. April and Andy!

Marshall and Lily from How I met your mother

Lilypad and Marshmellow. Sigh. Where to begin. They met in college and they still tell each other what they had for lunch. She finds his calves irresistible and she knows never to bring up chucky before bedtime. He plans elaborate parties for her because she loves birthdays. “Happy happy lily day.”

Joey and Rachel from Friends

If I was friends with on again/off again/on a break/getting married/having a baby/load a gun and kill me already and whatnot Ross and Rachel, I would have slapped them. A lot. Joey on the other hand was perfect. He was madly in love with Rachel, so pretty, and he was closer to her IQ level than Ross was. Also, clearly he has better game.

Jackie and Hyde from That 70’s show

She is uptight and rich and he’s a rebel with sideburns; they are meant for each other. Unfortunately they don’t work out what with the strippers, weddings, Kelso and Fez in the middle, but Jackie and Hyde were the cutest couple on that 70’s show.

Joey and Pacey from Dawson’s Creek

Joey Potter was caught in the eternal struggle between her best friend and his best friend. Well, it happens to all of us (not really). The kids on the creek sure experimented with a whole bunch of people before a moderately bad boy swept Joey off her feet. And thank god for that. Dawson Leary is the most boring, weak-ass protagonist to roam the land of teenage romance television shows.
