We can’t help but be envious of the homes of many of our favorite TV characters. While we know that these only exist on set — and that the ovens probably don’t actually work — we still continue to dream of one day owning a kitchen just like the ones we’ve seen on TV, whether it’s a Mad Men-style ‘60s throwback or a space that centers around a fridge dedicated solely to Champagne.
Eddy’s kitchen in Absolutely Fabulous deserves to be spectacular given how much time she spends there drinking bottle after bottle of Champagne (always Bollinger, of course, and always perfectly chilled thanks to the Champagne-dedicated fridge), chain smoking, and never ever cooking.
If you live or have ever lived in New York, you’ll understand that Monica’s kitchen in Friends really is totally unrealistic given the characters’ jobs and incomes, but that doesn’t make this wonderfully cluttered yet chic kitchen any less desirable.
Of course, the Upper East Side kitchens that we’re given brief glimpses of in Gossip Girl are stunning, but it’s the Humphrey’s Brooklyn loft kitchen with exposed brick walls, a huge breakfast bar, vast windows, leather diner-style booths, and an endless supply of waffles that we really love.
Plaid wallpaper, frilly curtains, baby blue work surfaces, and pine cabinets come together to make the most perfect retro kitchen. Every detail of our ‘60s aspirations is achieved in Betty Draper’s perfect kitchen.
The Good Wife
The Florrick’s kitchen in their Chicago apartment is what we all hope to own one day. The minty blue cabinetry and backsplash tiles soften the feel of an otherwise monochrome space, which has been decked out with all the kitchen tools and equipment we would really, really love to have for ourselves.
