If your DVR is suddenly full after a lonely summer, it’s pretty safe to assume its fall TV season. Nothing quite compares to the twinges of design envy and the panic of stalking Google for a replicate of a comforter, or coffee table as seen on TV. Some rarely take the time to understand what the surroundings of the characters say about them – or perhaps you have noticed, albeit subconsciously.
One of the most thought-out interiors on television today is the loft shared by four unlikely roommates on FOX’s ‘New Girl’. While somewhat unrealistic due to factors like floor space and budget constraints (only one character appears to have a consistent salary job), it’s important to implement your imagination and view set design as another powerful storytelling element.
The loft is massive and reflects major trends – open concept, exposed brick, industrial beams. This reminds the audience that this is an urban setting, originally inhabited by only guys. Zooey Deschanel’s Jess not only introduces all the conflict and adventure in the series but eclectic, bright decor details.
