In the spirt of some of our favorite Fall TV shows now being in full swing, we thought it was about time to pull together another “On the Set” post. Our last one was four months ago! For this edition, we thought it would be fun to feature one of Greg’s and my must-watch shows…
It’s the apartment we all wish we had when we were 19. This cozy shabby chic industrial loft belongs to Mary Margaret Blanchard… er… Snow White on ABC’s Once Upon a Time. Though it hasn’t been featured in the current season (not yet anyway), it’s still my favorite set on the show, and definitely one of my favorite fictional homes in modern TV Land.
The loft kind of reminds me of a white-washed Anthropologie store. There’s a lot going on, including an assortment of textures (there’s wood, brick, steel, and concrete), mix-matched furniture ranging from mid-century to farm house, and a plethora of area rugs.
Downstairs is the kitchen, bathroom, living/dining area, a sewing table and
Mary Margaret’s Snow’s bedroom. Up the stairs is a another bedroom, which, in the second episode of the first season becomes Emma’s room.
In various episodes, I’ve noticed a ton of accessories from Anthropologie – especially in the kitchen area. I love the wire baskets on the wall in the kitchen that are used as shelves, and the little pops of muted colors here and there are really charming… pun intended, haha. Speaking of
David Charming, isn’t it neat how Snow White and Prince Charming are getting married in real life?!
Everything is really open – like any real loft should be – with lots of exposed beams and industrial accents. Next to the kitchen, and open to the rest of the loft, is Mary Margret’s bedroom area (you can see it in the background of the above photo).
Probably my favorite aspect of the set is how the set designer leaves little “Easter eggs” around the apartment tying Mary Margaret to the Snow White we know from the classic Disney film, with little ceramic animals, woodsy elements and bird motifs here and there.
Now it’s your turn… what your favorite TV or movie dwellings?
