How To Get A “Gilmore Girls”-Style Living Room

Rory and Lorelei w.atching TV

The Gilmore girls’ living room is a place of true joy. From knock-down-drag-out fights to heart-to-heart conversations to countless movie nights and endless witty banter, it was the backdrop for so many of our favorite moments from the show. It’s exactly the kind of place we want for our own living rooms; here’s how to get that look and feel.

1. Big. Comfy. Couch.

To have the perfect movie night or a comfy place for a friend in need to crash, you need the perfect comfy couch. Lorelai and Rory joked that theirs was old and lumpy, so don’t worry about buying something new. Just be sure it is well-loved and has lots of room to spread out for your marathon movie sessions or long talks. | Try: TRIBECCA HOME Uptown Modern Sofa, Overstock.com, $438

2. Throw pillows and blankets

Part of having a cozy living room like the Gilmores’ is being able to cuddle up whenever you want. Sink onto your comfy couch in your mountains of blankets and throw pillows and know that you’re finally home and in your safe place. | Try: Room Essentials Circle Dot Throw Pillows, Target, $16 for two

3. Lots of DVDs

A true “Gilmore Girls” living room wouldn’t be complete without ~every single DVD~ ever created. Stock up on movie references to use in your witty banter and pay homage to Blockbuster by having a fantastic movie collection right in your own home. | Try: Movie Stop, Amazon.com and WalMart for discounts

4. Weird accessories

Get a monkey lamp! At best, it will freak your mother out when she comes to visit. At worst, it will just provide some nice lighting and make a good conversation piece. Check out junk stores and thrift shops for other weird, kitchsy items to decorate with. | Try: Trash Bucket, Urban Outfitters, $24

5. Lamps. Lamps everywhere. And natural lighting. That, too.

And speaking of lamps: You never see either of the Gilmore girls turn on an overhead light. Their entire living room is lit with either lamps or natural light, depending on the time of day. Open those curtains and blinds and let in some natural light for a soft, breezy feel, and at night, let your lamps make your room feel warm and snug. | Try: Table lamp with Empire Shade, Wayfair, $18

6. Big coffee table
