How to Get the Nostalgic Look of the Fuller House Home
If you enthusiastically binged on every episode of Fuller House (and then shed a tear when it was over, only to get happy again when you found out about season two), you’ll know that like any good ’90s remake, the “house” part of Fuller House didn’t change all that much. The show crammed in so many throwbacks to the original Full House that the nostalgia feelings ran high — right down to the same blue gingham couch in the living room. Since we are going through some *serious* Tanner withdrawals, we’re already looking for ways to copy their welcoming home decor while we wait for the next season. Scroll down to see our favorite pics on how to get the Fuller House look — blue plaid accents may or may not be included.
Gone is the dated wood paneling, but the blue plaid accents remain. The kitchen doesn’t look too much different with the exception of new appliances and a pretty new tile backsplash. Instead of completely making over the kitchen with granite countertops and subway tile, it’s nice to feel like you’re coming home, especially with the kids’ drawings hanging on the wall. One little change: apparently 2016 is the year the Tanners are loving signage (check the “eat” marquee in the kitchen and a “home” pillow on the couch).
Love the kitchen, but not sure you’re ready to commit to blue plaid? You can still get the same color scheme without going full country with blue accents like ombre curtains and colorful dishes. Bring in texture with a woven pendant light and storage options like over-sized baskets. The finishing touch is a big marquee “eat” sign to make your space feel as inviting as our favorite TV kitchen.

D.J. still lives in her old room, but instead of sharing the room with her sister, she’s had to figure out how to fit a crib into her space. Her wall art game is looking good with modern botanical prints and lots of light blue accessories to create a soothing palette.
Give your bedroom a cool blue makeover with boho bedding and a cozy tasseled throw blanket. Put an upholstered bench at the foot of your bed for extra storage and add a turquoise lamp for some good lighting by the bed. If you’re not lucky enough to have Deej’s signature bay window seat, DIY a mini reading nook with a cozy arm chair and a personalized mug for your coffee.

The original living room is one of the most recognizable on TV, and with the white and blue plaid couch still front and center, not much has changed. There are still random decorative tchotchkes, although the man with a trumpet has been replaced with a nautical theme. The couch did get a modern update with a new throw pillow collection, but the side tables look exactly the same as they did in Full House.
Incorporate all the best parts of the Fuller House living room into your space with a sky blue couch, nautical art prints and some cheery new throw pillows. A bright yellow coffee table packs a colorful punch and modern accessories like a gold tray table and cutout lamp give that San Fran artsy vibe, even if you don’t live in an old Victorian townhouse.
