‘Black-ish’ is the TV show about the life of the Johnsons, an upper-middle-class African-American family. The series premiered on September 24, 2014, and for some reason, I started to watch it last month. And of course, I’m now addicted to it.
This article is not about the family, it’s about their beautiful home. Even in a pilot, we could see a beautiful house, big and modern kitchen with a huge island and stylish backyard, so my first reaction was that I have to write about it.
I read somewhere that Johnson family have some similarities with a Duhphy’s from ‘Modern Family’. Well about that, I both agree and disagree. Maybe there are some parallels with their children’s personalities – Haley and Zoey are the oldest in both shows and they are both popular, Diane and Alex are younger sisters and they are both very smart, and Junior and Luke are both an average guys that are not so smart.
When it comes to their home, a Dunphy’s home is way more chaotic since there’s a lot traffic with three kids and both working parents.
The life of Johnson family is also chaotic, with their fours kids and two very responsible jobs, but somehow their home always manages to stay flawless.
The home of Johnson’s is a beautiful, huge house in a nice neighborhood. The house is so big that they have two living rooms and two dining rooms – one living room and dining room are connected to their kitchen as a part of one big open space room. The other dining room and living room you can see one the right side from an entry room.

The bar stool from Black-ish set is designed in an industrial style. Chime 30″ Bar Stool by Modway is very similar to the original one, and you can buy it for a very affordable price. This bar stool can also be used outside because of its metal construction.
The original dining set from the show has cream and brown tones, so it’s very neutral and it can fit in a variety of decors because of its timeless design. This dining set has also a classic design that looks very much alike the one from the set. This set includes one table and six chairs.
The second dining room’s look is much more sophisticated and glamorous in a comparison with a casual dining space that is united with kitchen and first living area. The dining table and chairs are massive pieces of furniture with a stylish appearance.

Johnson’s family main living room is a small and cozy room with domination of white and ivory tones. The khaki armchair breaks the monotony of these tones a little bit.

The chevron rug gives a sophisticated touch to a room with its neutral, beige tones. This rug by Winston Porter could be a great substitution to an expensive rug from set if you want to decorate your living room in similar tones.
Since the original furniture from Johnson’s living room looks like that it’s a part of the same collection, I found a sofa, armchair and ottoman that could easily fit in this interior style.

Hadley Tufted Arm Chair is very similar to the original arm chair the show. Its construction is sturdy, and the upholstery is linen. It’s also available in beige.
The master bedroom in Johnson’s home is one of the most beautiful rooms. The bedroom is spacious and designed with a style and sophistication.
