The rooms seen on Gilmore Girls are some of TV's most recognizable homes, but if we're honest, they definitely show the signs of their early-2000s decor. What might the characters' living spaces have looked like if they were decorating in 2019? Interior design startup Modsy imagined how six of the show's major characters might have styled their living rooms with the best of today's decor options and trends.

Six characters — Lorelai, Rory, Emily, Luke, Paris, and Sookie — get the redesign treatment, with rooms that channel each of their unique personalities and styles along with the latest trends in home decor. Step back into the world of Stars Hollow and find out how to get some of these Gilmore Girls-inspired looks for your own space!

Bright and Comfy Lorelai

Bright and Comfy Lorelai

Lorelai's home has always been colorful and comfortable above all else, and that's exactly what this updated room focuses on. A bright pink couch draws the eye, while quirky, unique details are scattered all around to make it feel lived-in and specific to her lifestyle. The space combines the traditional with the unique to make a room that's pure Lorelai.

Coastal Rory
Modsy

Coastal Rory

In 2019, Rory would probably go for a neutral, coastal vibe. Relaxed yet well-organized and ordered, her space reflects a need for calm and a sense of charm. Neutral colors keep everything chill, but individualized touches remind us that, no matter how far she goes, she's still a Gilmore at heart.

Sophisticated Emily
Modsy

Sophisticated Emily

The elegance of this room captures Emily's innate sense of luxury and sophistication, but with updated colors and styles. With a slightly more formal room layout, with two sofas facing each other, her space is clearly designed for conversation and entertaining. All the requisite elements — a drink cart, a chandelier — are there to show off her skill as a hostess, but in the ultimate classy way.

Rustic Luke
Modsy

Rustic Luke

Luke's space is rustic without being sloppy, full of warm browns and prioritizing comfort and ease of living. It's an unmistakably masculine space (that we assume lives next to Lorelai's quirky decor) that pulls inspiration from his personality and from his family hardware-store-turned-diner, but it's also cozy and homey.

Quirky Sookie

Sookie's style has always been full of color and quirkiness, and that's exactly what her updated decor brings to the table, too. Her home is full of bright colors and fun patterns, along with a few touches for her husband Jackson (hi, antler chandelier!). It's as beautifully chaotic and playful as Sookie herself!
