Mindy Lahiri’s NYC apartment, The Mindy Project

Dr. Mindy Lahiri lives in the modern girly-girl’s dream apartment. Like our heroine, this apartment isn’t afraid to show us who it really is. It’s loud, bold, and doesn’t shy away from a little pattern mixing.

Cristina and Owen’s renovated firehouse, Grey’s Anatomy

No one who lived here was happy, but who needs happiness when you have rooftop access and a newly renovated kitchen?

Maggie and Liza’s Brooklyn loft, Younger

Liza may be reeling from a divorce when she moves into BFF Maggie’s funky loft, but she immediately realizes her life has just been upgraded. The open concept kitchen and living area is enormous, and there’s an extra-large sofa perfect for much needed girls nights.

Olivia Pope’s apartment, Scandal

A comfy white couch where the required meal is popcorn and giant goblets of red wine? Yeah, it looks like things are being handled just fine here.

Frasier Crane’s Seattle apartment, Frasier

Frasier’s swanky home may not have as much personality as others on this list, but you know what it does have? A ridiculous view of the Seattle skyline. It’s always and forever about location.

Monica’s purple apartment, Friends

As Friends lives on in reruns, an entirely new generation of apartment dwellers get to marvel at Monica’s unicorn of an West Village apartment. We don’t know how Monica afforded this place, and we don’t care—we just want to move in. Have all of my mail forwarded to Miss Chanandler Bong across the hall, please!

Sean’s loft, Felicity

Another inexplicably enormous apartment in downtown Manhattan. So much space, so much angst. Sean uses his kitchen to invent wondrous things like “Smoothaise,” but mostly its coveted extra storage space is wasted on college students.

The Humphrey’s Brooklyn three-bedroom, Gossip Girl

Yes, Gossip Girl gives us a glimpse into the luxury homes of elite Upper East Siders, but we’d still choose to spend our days in the Humphrey family’s artsy Brooklyn apartment. The exposed brick alone is worth all the drama.

Barry and Iris’ loft, The Flash

Central City might not be real, but our love for the newlywed’s cozy loft most definitely is. From the gorgeous rugs, the focal fireplace, the abundance of blankets, to the never-ending supply of candles, this loft is a hygge explosion. Every great superhero needs a sanctuary, why not make it a comfortable one?

The loft, New Girl

It’s a four-bedroom loft apartment with a large open concept kitchen, dining room, and living room in Los Angeles. It also comes with a large dose of sexual tension. It is perfect.
