here's what the simpsons house would look like if homer + marge hired an interior designer

over the past 30 years, homer and marge simpson have lived at 742 evergreen terrace and haven’t so much as touched a roll of wallpaper. the sparse, yet comfortable furnishings have remained unchanged through the decades, and have become synonymous with american suburbia since the show first aired back in 1989.


these steadfast interiors sparked an idea in the minds of the creatives at UK studio neomam — what if homer and marge hired an interior designer to jazz things up a bit? the team worked with interior design consultant pat mcnulty to choose a range of contemporary decor styles, and then applied them to each of the residential spaces with the help of a little digital wizardry.

simpsons home makeover: the living room before the remodeling



envisioned by neomam for angie’s list, the seven rooms from the simpsons’ home we each given a full interior makeover. the team worked alongside mcnulty on researching the different styles to be applied to the spaces, and worked to meticulously recreate the dwelling in line with today’s interior design trends. the team also created digital renders that envision how the animated rooms would look in the real world, creating seamless before-and-after shots for the campaign. the project forms part of a series of visual content campaigns commissioned by angie’s list, which aim to inspire homeowners to think creatively about the spaces in their own house.

  • I’m sure glad they didn’t hire this designer.

    L Power says:
  • Happy they didn’t hire one then! The old situation tops the new by far. What a waste of ink this article…

    MartijnFrank dirks says:
  • much better before

    Max says:
  • perfect example of soul vs soulless, stop this blanding nonsense

    Lody Aeckerlin says:
  • Well. The Simpsons are Americans. . . Sooooo, yeah. A UK remodeling/redecorating is really blah. None of it is Simpson America. Gender neutral nursery? Lame. The kitchen is atrocious in all its boring blandness. The bathroom is beyond what a fully functional family in America would use. And to completely screw up the parents room!?! Marge spending time in the mirror is far more wholesome than the lame TV that replaced it. I give it a HUGE epic fail.

    Yes, the Simpsons would agree if they were real.

    Omadon Martinez says:
  • All there hating comments are by people that dont know about the benefits of “random projects”. Like major practice and discipline.
    This is awesome and great renderings !! Looks very real and I absolutly love the project.
    If I would to critic this, i think overall this project should have had a consitant look and rooms were a little more alike. But oh well ! Good job looks amazing, and I bet was so much fun to work on it 🙂

    Ellz says:
  • I was afraid I’m the only one who thinks before is way better than after. Glad I’m not.

    Crisc says:
  • this is seriously a joke, i can’t believe this edgy design is so shallow and pedantic
    so pretentious, stop re-inventing things, and just simply INVENT

    literally everyone says:
  • I’m only interested in the before pics. Can’t beat the original.

    Yuyi says:
  • It’s just in fun guys, sheesh. I’m a Simpsons geek and enjoyed the read.

    Jonathan Barnes says:
  • This is just dumb. These room could be from any house. There’s nothing left that says simpsons.
