Floor Plans of TV Homes: Brandi Roberts Re-Creates the 'Friends' Apartment and More
It only happens on TV: People living in the best apartments money can buy in the middle of New York City (but seemingly never spending any time at a job to pay for them).
For the rest of us, we'll never have Carrie Bradshaw's brownstone apartment
in "Sex and the City" or Monica and Rachel's spacious pad
in "Friends" -- but we can at least hang them on the walls of our own homes.
Artist Brandi Roberts
of Columbia, S.C., marries her love of real estate and pop culture by drawing blueprints of some of the most famous homes on television, from Jerry Seinfeld's to Don Draper's. She sells frame-able versions on her site, fantasyfloorplans.com
Roberts has been drawing TV homes since she was 7 years old, she said.
"I've always tried to map out TV interiors into plausible floor plans while watching the shows," Roberts told AOL Real Estate
. "I thought why not take my talents for drawing floor plans and tie it to my love of TV. It's a challenge because I have to interpret what I feel is the most crucial to the design of a plausible floor plan."
She has created dozens of TV floor plans, but it's safe to say her "Mad Men" drawings are her favorites: She has made a series of seven drawings of Don Draper's homes and his Sterling Cooper offices.
"My work is an evolution of a childhood fascination with floor plans and a desire to document the American TV home over the last seven decades," she said.
