The Jetsons home brought to life

The Jetsons home brought to life

The interior design in the Jetsons is the stuff of my dreams. It’s the perfect mix of retro and ultra-modern. So I decided to try to recreate what it would look like in real life.

I’ve been considering recreating a fictional room for a while, I just wasn’t sure which show to use as my inspiration. I considered iCarly, Drake & Josh, That’s So Raven, but ultimately decided it would be the most fun to do it with a cartoon. And what better cartoon to use than The Jetsons? I’ve been really into the whole retro-meets-modern style in my own place lately, and I think the style and architecture in the Jetsons is pretty much spot-on.

So I studied pictures of the living room and dining room from the show. Then I took to the internet to find real-life furniture that looks as close to possible to their cartoon counterparts.

The furniture in this post won’t be as accessible as the rest of the content on this blog. Because surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly, this furniture was pretty hard to find since it was so specific.

So I will not be running out to buy this stuff anytime soon, but it was super fun to try to reimagine the cartoon world in the real world.

I drew up some mock-ups of the rooms. The architectural aspects of the room are drawn, but the fixtures are all real pieces that you can check out online. So enjoy, and I hope you take some real inspiration for your own place, I know I did!
