TV show homes become real floor plans

By Mary Beth Breckenridge

Ever wish you could live in a space like the one on the hit TV show “Friends”? Or maybe you wanted the space-conscious layout that Carrie Bradshaw had on “Sex and the City.”

Now you can get floor plans for both. Interior designer Inaki Aliste Lizarralde has created real-life drawings for those fictional dwellings and many others, including abodes from “The Simpsons,” “I Love Lucy” and “Seinfeld.”

Lizarralde sells his original drawings at the online marketplace Etsy (www.

PlansAndMore) as well as prints through the website Deviant Art (http://nik

neuk.deviantart.com).

Prices range from about $55 for Lucy and Ricky’s apartment to $205 for the house from the movie “Up” and the home of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore from the TV series “Gilmore Girls.”

He has a long list of projects on the back burner, including the houses from “Roseanne” and “Married … With Children,” the bachelor pads of Don Draper of “Mad Men” and Barney Stinson of “How I Met Your Mother,” and Tony Soprano’s house from “The Sopranos.”

He’s often asked to draw the castle from “Downton Abbey” and the Hogwarts School from the “Harry Potter” films, but they’re too massive and complex.

“I only have two hands (and usually only draw with the right one),” he said, “and the day has only 24 hours.”
