Eclectic Mix of Classic and Trendy on Set: Gossip Girl Interiors

Eclectic Mix of Classic and Trendy on Set: Gossip Girl Interiors

Gossip girl, a scandalous drama about Manhattan`s elite, sets new trends in fashion and interior design. Every set created for the show manages to express the character`s complex personalities. An eclectic mix of classic and new help build the intricate stories. The interiors from CWTV`s hit show Gossip Girl have been an amazing source of inspiration for those who seek a luxurious, glamorous and youthful interior design. Cristina Tonkin, the set decorator for Gossip Girl (also known for creating the interior for Charlotte York`s Sex and the City Upper East Side apartment) has created wonderful interior designs for each of the young and fabulous character of the show.

The designer used some pretty great ideas to decorate on a budget: the headboard in Serena`s room is actually foam over plywood covered with fabric and the egg chairs in the Waldorf penthouse are knock-offs recovered with leather.  The decorator also used many reflective surfaces to give the impression of an elegant, glamorous lifestyle: silver pillows, the wall in Blair Waldorf`s bedroom, glass orbs, beautifully reflecting lamps or crystal ashtrays. Elegantly young, the bedrooms of the female characters mix   while Chuck Bass` bachelor pad is a creation that uses both a modern and contemporary style and some DiY projects: the pool table is a find that was recovered with turquoise felt. Beautiful prints were used to overheat the show`s interior design: the picture with the girl with sunglasses over Chuck`s bed is a Richard Philips creation entitled “Scout”.
