Marcia Andreychuk and Joel Hamilton have been recreating the kitchen from The Simpsons in their own home for the last 8 months.
“It was a random, conceptual moment that set everything in motion,” Andreychuk told BuzzFeed Canada.
She said to Hamilton, “We should retrovate our kitchen to look like The Simpsons.” His response? A resounding “Yes!”
While Hamilton is the household Simpsons superfan, Andreychuk was keen to give the room an unconventional facelift.
“I’m just the fan of their quirky kitchen! Stainless steel appliances and modern cabinetry is so boring to me,” she said.
They started by hanging this image of the Simpsons’ kitchen as inspiration and then began tracking the items they needed.
They have been improving the the look since December, while adding in touches like purple cabinets with the blue knob. The new yellow and blue checkered flooring cost them $2000. And they spent over $300 on the smaller touches, including contact paper to change the colors of their countertop, cabinets and appliances.
There are small details like the green utensils and corncob drapes. Andreychuk sewed the curtains herself after finding the perfect corncob print fabric online.
They went with a retro pink and white look for the washer and dryer. Their kitchen is still a work in progress, as they continue to add finishing touches like the purple toaster, teal blender, orange phone and yellow canisters. While their nephews will recreate the Simpson children’s artwork on the family fridge.
