As the hilarious sitcom gears up for a modern-day reboot, we’re taking a moment to imagine how Will’s iconic NYC apartment would look if Grace, Jack or Karen had moved in in his place.
Will’s Manhattan pad was given an epic revamp in the season nine reboot, but as the cast prepare to launch season 10, the vision of the iconic set has come into focus once more.
To celebrate the show’s return to the screen, Modsy, a virtual interior design startup, reimagined the digs according to how they think it would have been styled today, although it’s Grace, Jack and Karen’s interior style they explored.
Should any of the other characters had come into possession of the Upper West Side abode, this is how they each would have kitted it out.
An interior designer, Grace would have had an absolute ball jazzing up this space to suit her aesthetic.
“Grace has a loud personality and we think she would have brought that in through bold textures, prints, patterns and colour,” says Alessandra Wood, style director of Modsy.
“As an interior designer, she would have been extremely detail-oriented in her space especially in choosing wallpaper, lighting, and finishes.”
It’s got jungle vibes with the use of animal prints, palm leaves and rattan, but then is equally as luxe with pops of gold in the bar cart and chandelier.
Jack had expensive taste and a knack for picking timeless pieces, which is why his Swan chair and Nelson pendant lights would have made the cut in his 2018 apartment.
“In this apartment, we wanted his personality and style to shine, so we mixed some of the pieces he already had with new colour, textures, and pattern,” says Alessandra.
“Jack’s original apartment was quite bold and small – so we swapped a green pastel colour palette for the bolder hues in Jack’s own space.”
Neutral furnishings help to tone down the bright hues, while pops of aqua work to create a sense of cohesion.
With a conversational floor plan and plenty of plush seating, the finished look is a chic space designed to perfectly reflect his love for gossip.
Karen’s digs in 2018 would be the epitome of modern-day old Hollywood glamour with rich tones, animal prints and velvets designed to “tie in Karen’s fierce sense of fashion and luxurious lifestyle”, says Alessandra.
“Her love for the finer things in life really shines through here with bold, trendy statement pieces that give an editorial, high society feel to the space.”
The green is gone and in its place would be a moody deep purple-grey that simply screams drama.
