Monica’s Apartment from Friends
So to follow on from my first TV post where I showed you how to get the look of Marshall and Lily’s apartment in ‘How I Met Your Mother’, I thought I’d get a little nostalgic looking at Monica’s apartment in everyone’s favourite sitcom ‘Friends’. I actually remember the first time I watched an episode- I was eleven years old and my best friend had the pilot episode on VHS- which we watched repeatedly. Following that I used to run home from Guides every Friday night to watch it on channel 4 at 9pm.

The picture frame around the peephole in the apartment door is probably one of the most recognisable part of the entire set. There are so many tutorials and replicas available on the web, but this tutorial on Instructables was by far the best I found- and it looks like it’d be loads of fun to make too.
