Modern Family – The Dunphy’s Home

My husband and I are huge fans of the ABC show Modern Family. The 3 families that are depicted in the show are hysterical.  Each has their own quirks as we all do in ‘real’ life.  I adore the Dunphy’s home.  It is probably because of where we are in our life.  We have children and our house is typically less than stellar on most occasions.  Claire and Phil’s home has the lived in and loved appeal to us.  I love the colors in the home.  I recently painted our dining room and office the blue that is shown in the entry of the Dunphy home.  I believe that is was not on purpose, but since the beginning of the show I have loved the blue.   The actual color of paint is Labrador Blue from Benjamin Moore.   The production designer, Richard Berg, purposely based the design for a Pottery Barn-Restoration Hardware traditional modern feeling.

Phil & Claire Dunphy

The sofa is from Sofa U Love.  I believe it is the New Vincent Sofa.  The pillows are from Pottery Barn which I believe are close to these.  Oh, the Labrador Blue.  I so love it.

Family Room & Kitchen

This is a well loved room.  You can tell from the cozy sofa and chair to the mish mash of plate art in the dining area.  The rug is from Home Goods and the cocktail table is from Crate & Barrel.  While you may be hard pressed to find the exact rug at Home Goods, you will find many options.  I love Home Goods and that every time I browse the store there is something different.  So, if you find something you really like you have to get it then or it will be gone.

The hub of the action

I am a huge fan of painted kitchen cabinets.  It’s a great way to bring in color usually a neutral unless you are very brave.  This is typically in any home where most of the action takes place.  I really like the farmhouse table.  The chairs are a great accompaniment to the table.  I believe that the chairs are the Napoleon chair from Pottery Barn.  You can find them here. As far as the dining table goes, the Harvest Dining table may be a good option from Pottery Barn as well.

I will do more posts about this home because I really love it.  What are your favorite TV homes?

    I have been trying to find a plate collection like the one Claire has in her kitchen. Do you have any suggestions on where I can go or where they got the plates for the Dunphy kitchen? I like how they are different sizes and are hung separately, instead of attached.

      I am pretty sure they are from Crate and Barrel or Homegoods. Cost Plus World Market has great plates that you can buy individually to make a display with as well. A product that I found, Disc Hangers, would be great to use for hanging plates. They are concealed behind the plate so they give the appearance that they are hanging as a picture frame would hang. The prices are pretty good on them as well. You can find them online,, or The Container Store carries them as well.

      Thanks for commenting.

    Please help! I’ve been looking everywhere for the pillows in Cam and Mitchell’s living room. One is orange with a single circlular graphic and the other is a darker background with a circlular graphic . A pic is included in the People Magazine spread – here is the link. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      I’ve looked at Jonathan Adler, West Elm, Z Gallerie, Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn. I can almost bet that they were bought from Home Goods. The set designers had said that they purchased quite a bit from Home Goods. Unfortunately, they do not stock items because they receive overstocks or discontinued items. I will continue researching and let you know if I come across the pillows.

      Thanks for visiting.

    I am so impressed! I love Claire’s and Mitch’s houses. Have you ever done a post like this on Cam & Mitchell’s houses? There are so many things I want from their apt and I don’t know where to find them!
