5 TV Shows To Inspire Your Home Decor

1. Friends

First up, we have the timeless classic "Friends." Join Monica, Rachel, Chandler, Joey, Ross, and Phoebe in their cosy Central Perk coffeehouse-inspired apartment, filled with rustic charm and quirky details. Get ready to infuse your space with a touch of the beloved '90s New York nostalgia. And to celebrate the charm of The Big Apple that’s the very essence of this evergreen sitcom, you can adorn your wall decor with a stunning New York City framed wall poster

If you are the Monica of your friend circle and love hosting dinner parties and get a little too attached to fine china, luxurious dinner plate and snack plate sets with intricate gold detailings might be just the thing you need for an inspired table decor setup. When we talk about Monica Geller, it’s impossible to not mention her superb culinary skills. So, if you are the Masterchef of the house and cooking is your passion just like Monica, a perfect cooking apron is a must-have accessory for your kitchen

Much like Monica’s love for cooking, Ross’s obsession with dinosaurs as a palaeontologist is pretty hard to miss in every season of “Friends.” And using some quirky dino decor showpieces might be a fun addition to your living room decor that’s inspired by the epic and timeless sitcom. Let your room decor mirror the warmth and cosiness of the sitcom and inspire your loved ones to say “I’ll be there for you” every time they visit your home.

2. The Big Bang Theory

Next, brace yourself for some geek chic decor with "The Big Bang Theory." Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, and the gang may be geniuses, but their eclectic decor choices are also truly inspiring. For instance, if scientific research and online gaming are the two pillars of your life, much like Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, and Raj, your laptop has to be your constant companion. Hence, a sturdy laptop bag can be exactly what you need to safely carry your laptop no matter where you go.

When we talk about “The Big Bang Theory”, Sheldon Cooper is essentially the heart and soul of the sitcom. Whether he’s an annoying roommate or a genius theoretical physicist, that’s debatable, but his quirkiness and “Bazinga”-like sense of humour leave you in splits. And a huge part of Sheldon’s quirkiness comes from his obsession with organisation and cleanliness. So, if you are as paranoid as Sheldon about keeping your personal belongings in order, a file rack can be an ideal decor accessory for your desk or living room decor.

Speaking of Sheldon’s organisation skills, it’s hard to miss his love for making schedules - from bathroom schedules to laundry schedules. For Sheldon, laundry night is always Saturday night and he is very particular about his fresh laundry. So, if you want to keep your fresh laundry spick and span just like Sheldon, a multipurpose storage basket will be an excellent choice.

If you are an ardent follower of “The Big Bang Theory”, you must also know how much of a cleanliness freak and germophobe Sheldon Cooper is. If Sheldon loves anything more than physics that’ll be a bottle of Purell and a box of tissue papers. So, a living room decor inspired by the sitcom is totally incomplete without a tissue box and a dispenser bottle for hand sanitiser.

Since “The Big Bang Theory” is all about celebrating the nerd culture and showcasing how science can be cool, we can’t forget Howard’s big space adventure where he got to fulfil his childhood dream of becoming an astronaut. Keeping that in mind, an astronaut figurine can be the best decor showpiece for living room to incorporate the vibe and essence of this legendary sitcom into your living room decor ideas.

3. The Vampire Diaries

What’s the first scene that comes to your mind when you think about “The Vampire Diaries”? Elena Gilbert writing in her journal is one of the very first scenes of the Pilot episode after the opening credits. The entire series also heavily focuses on several journal entries by Stefan Salvatore to build enticing and thrilling backstories of different characters that beautifully bind the storyline together. Just like Stefan and Elena, if you find journaling therapeutic, we have the perfect leather journal to help you jot down your day’s thoughts. 


Even though the show is set in the modern era, the decor setups featured in it have a very vintage and antique vibe. Not to mention, the old flashbacks and backstories that build the whole storyline of the show offer an antique and mid-century decor theme. Remember Katherine Pierce’s old photograph from 1864? If you are a fan of such vintage decor items and photo frames or picture frames, we have the perfect crystal candle stand set and portrait photo frame to give your living room decor or dining table decor that Gothic feel.

When we talk about home decor inspired by “The Vampire Diaries”, it’s almost impossible to ignore some gorgeous candles. In fact, candles play a front and centre role in almost every witchy activity shown in the series - from Bonnie practising magic to performing a complex spell. Not to mention, candles offer a unique eerie Gothic charm that’s quite unparalleled. That’s why our mogra-scented votive candle or other scented candles can be a perfect addition to your living room decor.

Along with fighting doom and gloom supernatural entities, drinking a fine glass of bourbon is equally important in the show. How many times have you seen Damon and Alaric share a bottle of finely aged bourbon? If you want to enjoy such an elegant drinking experience, we have gorgeous crystal whiskey glasses and party drinks glasses to adorn your dining table decor or bar corner. Let the mystic charm of Mystic Falls guide you in creating a Gothic and ethereal ambience.

4. Bridgerton

Romance meets elegance in the Regency-era drama, "Bridgerton." Step into a world of opulence and grace with lavish fabrics, pastel hues, and vintage grandeur. If you are a fan of lavish and luxurious tea parties, the show can help you feel inspired to create a tea party decor setup that’ll leave your guests feeling awestruck. We bring you an elegant and sophisticated collection of tea sets and tea cup sets, featuring stunning teapots, dessert stands, and tea cup and saucer sets for an authentic “Bridgerton”-themed afternoon tea party to woo your guests.

And why stop at tea party decor when the royal and luxurious theme of “Bridgerton” can help you create a lavish banquet dinner? Our Aurelea collection includes vintage dinnerware pieces with intricate gold details that can go brilliantly with a “Bridgerton”-inspired dining table decor. From vintage salad plates and dinner plates to gorgeous side bowls and crystal wine glasses, we have it all to help you turn the extravagant “Bridgerton” dinner parties into reality.

But when we talk about the lavish grandeur of “Bridgerton” dinner parties, how can we miss those royal vintage table centrepieces? Whether you are a fan of antique candle stands or vibrant floral arrangements, a “Bridgerton”-themed dinner party calls for regal centrepieces for the dining table decor. You can use vintage candle holders or candelabra to create an enticing candle decoration for your dining table decor.   

Vintage candle stand

Not just dining table decor, metal candle stands and votives can also be excellent for creating living room decor styles that mirror the vintage and regal charm of “Bridgerton.” You can also use glass decorative vases to brighten up your living room corner with fresh and vibrant flowers, staying true to the sophisticated and bougie essence of the series.

And lastly, can a “Bridgerton”-inspired room decor style be complete without some vintage portrait photo frames? You can spot giant wall portraits and oil paintings with intricately designed golden frames almost in every scene of “Bridgerton”, whether it’s a living room, dining room, or hallway. So, using a large vintage picture frame can be a perfect way to incorporate the regal essence of “Bridgerton” into your home decor. Embrace the regal aesthetics of this delightful series and let your home become a haven of romance and refinement.

5. Sherlock

“The name’s Sherlock Holmes and the address is 221B Baker Street.” - Sherlock (2010-2017), BBC

Ready to solve mysteries in style? Enter the enigmatic world of "Sherlock." Even though there have been a good many shows on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s genius detective over the years, we’ll solely focus on BBC’s adaptation, which has become a modern classic in the realm of TV shows. So, channel your inner detective with a blend of elegance and modern minimalism

When we talk about “Sherlock”, it’s hard to miss the beautiful London backdrop and the city is at the heart of the entire series. You can’t help but fall in love with the gorgeous London skyline shown in the opening credit scene of the series. Hence, a London City framed wall art can be the best way to incorporate the essence of “Sherlock” that captures and showcases modern London in almost every scene and every shot.

Sherlock’s “mind palace” is something with which the fans of the show are very well acquainted. Whenever Holmes needed to put his deductive skills on overdrive, he visited his “mind palace” by blocking out everyone and everything. The only companion that he had in his “mind palace” was his violin. As we all know, Sherlock was a prolific violinist and composing new music on his violin was his way of honing his power of deduction as a detective. Thus, any “Sherlock”-inspired living room decor calls for some violin decor pieces or violin wall art to add the vibe of the “mind palace” to your decor.

When it comes to Sherlock’s power of deduction, we can’t miss the mental duels between Sherlock and his elder brother Mycroft Holmes. So, we decided to include some chess decor showpieces to celebrate Sherlock and Mycroft’s love for playing a good game of chess to test each other’s mental prowess. From the knight horse chess piece to the queen and king chess showpieces, you can use these decor pieces to create a “Sherlock”-themed design. Turn your humble abode into a real-life version of 221B Baker Street with these living room decor ideas.
