Achieve A F.R.I.E.N.D.S-Inspired Home With These 5 Must-Haves
Channel your inner Monica Geller with these picks
Who doesn't love the sitcom F.R.I.E.N.D.S? I know I do. There's a reason why this show has transcended generations and is still influencing younger fans. One episode can turn a bad day around. You and your best friend or even your mom have probably talked about seeing yourselves in Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Phoebe, Joey and my personal favorite, Monica.
Aside from the jokes that never get old, who can forget Monica's apartment? From the iconic yellow door frame to the lavender walls, anyone can take one look and recognize it. Nothing really matched in their decor, but then again, eclectic aesthetics somehow works and add character to any space. I'm sure fans like myself would love to find ways to cop the same look.
Today is your lucky day, we scoured our local shops for finds that will help you capture the same homey feel:
