As millennials, moving frequently is so common that we sometimes have trouble remembering our *current* address. But if there鈥檚 one apartment we鈥檝e got memorized down to every.last.detail, it鈥檚 Monica鈥檚 from Friends. The show鈥檚 central hangout (well, besides Central Perk) is engraved in our memories, which is what makes Modsy Director of Style Alessandra Wood鈥檚 latest project so interesting. In honor of the 14th anniversary of the show鈥檚 final episode, which aired on May 6, 2004, Wood reimagined the loft as it would look today, bringing the beloved space into a new era and teaching us some design tricks at the same time. Hint: Some of the controversial purple gets to stay in the picture.

That iconic door remains intact, but the rest of the space was kitted out to make it more accommodating to a family of four (supposing, of course, that Monica, Chandler, and the twins opted to stay in the city). Wood terms the look 鈥淩ustic Warmth,鈥 and it鈥檚 easy to see why. More masculine notes, like the hide rug and leather armchair, bring richness to the space, while an on-trend Moroccan pouf and plenty of pillows make it eclectic and inviting. 鈥淸T]his style is all about mixing the right pieces to make your house feel like a home,鈥 Wood tells Brit + Co. In her eyes, it鈥檚 all about achieving a balance. After this look for your own home? 鈥淢aybe pair a rustic piece like a large, weathered wooden chest with a vintage rug and plush furniture with linen upholstery,鈥 she advises.

It鈥檚 clear that the couple has stayed up-to-date on the trends: Those deep blue cabinets with brass hardware are straight out of the latest home magazine. (And who better to tackle the challenge of open shelving than neat-freak Monica?)

But Wood didn鈥檛 stop there: She reimagined the space through the eyes of the show鈥檚 other characters. If Joey had taken over the lease, his place might lean toward what Wood calls 鈥淎tomic Industrial鈥 styling. 鈥淲e think this looks shows off Joey鈥檚 matured style over time with the combination of vintage metals and reclaimed wood alongside Atomic era furniture,鈥 says Wood. (Joey, matured? We鈥檙e intrigued by the thought!) Her juxtaposition of clean lines and unique textures might appeal to 鈥渢hose who swear by mid-century modern furnishings, but also love weathered spaces that show more than a century鈥檚 history,鈥 she tells us.The exposed beams of the apartment were a major jumping-off point for Wood鈥檚 design, but it鈥檚 easy to see how Joey鈥檚 place stays true to his roots with the foosball table. Plus, we can bet that gleaming SMEG fridge is stocked full of sandwiches.

Finally, Wood took Rachel鈥檚 style for a spin. Rachel was easily the most glamorous of the bunch, and her apartment proves she took some serious inspo from her Ralph Lauren days but puts her own feminine spin on the space. 鈥淭his look is for those who are drawn to clean lines and spare rooms, but can鈥檛 resist luxurious textures, rich materials, and iconic accents,鈥 explains Wood. Statement pieces like a pink couch feel right at home in Rachel鈥檚 world, and she certainly didn鈥檛 skimp on the finishes. 鈥淵ou can鈥檛 go wrong with a combo of velvet, leather, metal, and marble in a subdued color palette,鈥 says Wood. The new layout shows off the apartment鈥檚 oversized window to great effect (we鈥檙e assuming Ugly Naked Guy has long moved on from his apartment across the way). To achieve this glamorous-yet-grounded look, Wood advises like-minded individuals to 鈥渃reate the perfect middle ground between drama and minimalism by anchoring your rooms with clean-lined furniture, then glam it up in the accessories department.鈥
