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:

The gang's hostess has blankets draped over the seating to keep her living room extra cozy. Consider doing this, too—these throws won't only give your home a pop of color, it will also keep your guests warm and toasty!

Throws, price available upon request, Crate and Barrel

This striking console will add a touch of vintage to your space while providing you with a place to store knickknacks. Like Monica, you can also use the space above to store magazines and coffee table books.

You can't deny that their favorite hangout is bursting with color! If you don't want to commit to big design changes, you can use statement furniture to update your space and these rainbow drawers will do just that. 

RL Tip: Similar to the wooden set of drawers on the show, this piece can also double as a TV stand!

Pantone Drawers, price available upon request, Space Encounters 

Couch pillows don't always have to match to look pretty! Keep things interesting by putting unique patterns together. 

RL Tip: Avoid clashing designs by keeping within the same color scheme.

Avoid the squabble Monica and Rachel had over candleholders by getting two sets of these stunning lanterns—one for each of you! Geometric silhouettes add character to any space and can be great conversation starters when you have people over.
