I wasn’t expecting to walk onto the set of black-ish and start taking notes about how to redesign my house, but that is exactly what I did. The black-ish set is GORGEOUS! Seriously, if it wasn’t for the missing roof and excess lights hanging down, I would live in this “house.” Thanks to Disney for inviting to tour the black-ish set and meet the cast.
Actually, I really liked seeing the twins’ room because it felt so real. While the room was tidy, there were hints of kids living in the space like an unattended juice box left on the bookcase. (BTW – I love the design concept for the twin’s room with each side decorated very differently, but still complementary.)
Walking through the hallways I was surprised how wide and open everything was. It is designed that way for filming, but thanks to TV magic everything looks cozier on screen.
Remember I mentioned taking notes for my house? My absolute favorite feature in the house was the recessed bookcases. LOVE this recessed bookcase. I know exactly where I would love to put one in my house.
Here are Dre’s shoes.
Watch black-ish Wednesdays on ABC at 9:30 pm EST.
black-ish is a bold new comedy that takes a multi-generational look at contemporary family issues. Andre ‘Dre’ Johnson (Anthony Anderson) has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), four kids and a colonial home in the ‘burbs. But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family? With a little help from his dad (Laurence Fishburne), Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family that honors their past while embracing the future. black-ish stars Anthony Anderson as Dre, Tracee Ellis Ross as Rainbow, Yara Shahidi as Zoey, Marcus Scribner as Andre Jr., Miles Brown as Jack, Marsai Martin as Diane and Laurence Fishburne as Pops.
