The Handmaid's Tale Set Design

(I wrote this in August 2017. It is now January 2018 and I am just now getting around to publishing it. That is all.)

YOU GUYS. Omg. Can we talk about the set design of The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu? It's like Restoration Hardware met dystopia and I DIG IT. Major props to the set designers/decorators (not totally sure what the difference is between a set designer and a set decorator, but I'm guessing it's similar to the difference in an interior designer and an interior decorator). ANYWAY... let's get to the good stuff.

I'm only including the "pretty" sets, so no supermarket, Red Center, doctor's office.

The formal dining room:

Favorite parts of the dining room: the wallpaper and chandy, duh. I wish we go to see more of it.

The Kitchen:

I think my favorite room. Absolutely love the combo of the green molding and cabinetry with the brick and the white counter tops. The copper and brass accents. The plantation shutters. LOVE IT ALL.

The informal dining room:

The nursery:

The Study:

I think my favorite. The peacock green built-ins give me LIFE.

The Parlor:

Stairs and Hallways:

The exterior of the Waterfords' House:

Nick's Room:

So sparse but I'd live there.

The fancy place that they had the dinner at:

So most of the props goes to the architect of whatever this building was at, but omg:

Janine's New House:

That bed tho 😍

The Putnams' House:

This is so wonderfully awful I had to include it.
