Decorating like the Gilmore Girls

To say I’m fanatical about the hit TV show “Gilmore Girls” is an understatement. If Stars Hallow were an actual place I would move there. There are apparently several Stars Hallow’s in the United States, but Rory, Luke, and Loralai probably don’t live there, so what’s the point? Instead it might be necessary to create out own Stars Hallow by copying the decorating style. The Gilmore’s combine a classic house with their funky accessories. Usually decorating is a less is more mentality but with the Gilmore’s more is more. No decluttering is necessary. For the Gilmore’s Style you will need.

1. Architecture: The Gilmore’s have gorgeous archways, a fireplace, a porch, hardwood floors, and vintage looking tile in the kitchen. Maybe you aren’t as lucky, or you live in an apartment and the landlord/neighbors disapprove of you building a wrap around porch. Try adding a faux fireplace or candlescape.

2. Walls: Light Colors of Wallpaper. The Gilmore’s keep their walls muted so their personalities stand out. The floors are a basic hardwood. This style works well if you are a renter and can’t paint, embrace your light colored walls!

3. Art: Try a large poster from your favorite movie, next to a set of vintage floral prints. Use your art as a way of opening up conversations or introducing people to a favorite band they might not have heard of.


4. Funky Accessories: This is where the Gilmore personality shines. Whether it’s a dress form, a monkey lamp, or a fuzzy alarm clock, go crazy. Use bright colors, beads, and faux fur to inexpensively imitate their look. Mix these in with inherited pieces or antiques to get the exact look.


The Gilmore’s combine a kitschy antique style such as lace curtains on every window, with very modern funky elements to create a home.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)

    If you were a Gilmore Girls fanatic, wouldn’t you know that the town is called Stars Hollow? Not Stars Hallow?!!
