The disembodied voice of scandal once said, “You know you love me,” and we do—enough to bring back Gossip Girl, the much-loved aughts-era TV show, for a 2021 redo. While the update, airing every Thursday starting this week on HBO Max, picks up where the original left off and still includes that same Kristen Bell–voiced Gossip Girl, it features a new, more diverse, more Internet-savvy cast as well as all-new fashion trends (RIP, headbands). The interiors of the New York elite—from a sleek DUMBO loft to a classic Upper East Side penthouse, created by production designer Ola Maslik—also reflect the changing times. Here, we break down some of our fave looks. Xoxo.
Obie’s DUMBO Living Room
This sprawling industrial loft with water views in Brooklyn is a major upgrade from the artsy living quarters of the OG Brooklyn boy, Dan Humphrey. Obie, a politically active son who protests his real estate developer parents’ every move, proves that living across the East River no longer makes you an outcast.
Max’s Upper East Side Living Room
As the self-proclaimed bad boy of the friend group (think: a toned-down Chuck Bass, minus the hotel fortune), Max has an Upper East Side pad that matches his moody disposition. Rich jewel tones and pattern play prove that he is not one to be trifled with.
Audrey’s Upper East Side Dining Room
Drenched in pastel hues and traditional silhouettes, this is the dining room we conjure up when we hear old money. Audrey is the ideal mix of Serena and Jenny, and her Upper East Side space perfectly combines the modern and the classic.
Julien’s Downtown Walk-In Wardrobe
As the reigning queen bee, with a famous music producer father, Julien is all about controlling her brand. With floor-to-ceiling shelving housing the season’s latest fashion trends, the wardrobe is Julien’s command center, whether she’s scheming or just decompressing after closing Christopher John Rogers’s fictional fashion show (casual).
