Over the course of his career, director Wes Anderson has created a bright, inimitable, and instantly recognizable style. From “Moonrise Kingdom” to “The French Dispatch,” Anderson has become well-known for his use of bright pastel colors and perfectly symmetric framing. It’s such an eye-catching aesthetic that you might find other media you consume after an Anderson film to seem unavoidably drab by comparison.

It bears the question: What would it look like if Anderson designed the sets of popular TV shows? To find out, home care platform Angi enlisted the help of interior designer Lau Wlasenkov to give six TV rooms an Anderson-esque makeover. You can check out the results below.
Netflix’s “Bridgerton” has been credited with reviving opulent, British high society-inspired design trends like Regencycore and Royalcore. While heroine Daphne Bridgerton’s lavish bedroom might inspire home decor lovers, Angi gave it a modern update courtesy of bright red zebra wallpaper reminiscent of the wallpaper from “The Royal Tenenbaums.”
Although Monica’s bright purple and yellow living room from “Friends” embraces Anderson’s bright color palette, its clutter doesn’t quite mesh with Anderson’s methodically composed films. So Angi gave the room a new pink and red color palette, placing new furniture on a tighter grid to give the room better symmetry. To top it off, they placed a retro TV set front center to add some key Anderson-esque details.
In the first season of “Russian Doll,” Natasha Lyonne’s Nadia can’t stop waking up in a sleek, industrial-style black bathroom at her birthday party. It’s effective interior design for a twisty mystery, but doesn’t mesh so well with Anderson’s whimsical aesthetic. So Angi brightened the room’s color scheme with splashes of blue and orange, adding some quirky vintage suitcases as a way of minimizing the bathroom clutter.
The Roy family may be billionaires, but their interior design remains limited to chrome, glass, and nondescript abstract paintings, mirroring the stunted, empty lives with which the characters of “Succession” contend. To brighten things up, Angi gave patriarch Logan Roy’s summer house office a twee yellow makeover reminiscent of Editor-in-Chief Arthur Howitzer Jr.’s office from “The French Dispatch.”
