My recent trip to Los Angeles not only lead me to an exclusive interview with the children and Executive Producer from “black-ish”, but also a visit to the set of the show as well!

While I had visited a movie set before in the past, this was my first time visiting a television show set. Being a follower of black-ish, I felt like I already been inside the Johnson home before, in a way. Also, even though I refer to it as a “set”, let me be the first to tell you that it looked nothing like a set at all, but instead a real-life home! It was decorated so beautifully that I actually left with a few ideas for my own home – ha!

If it weren’t for the studio lights in the ceiling, you may think this is someone’s actual home. I mean, there is even crown moulding.

On camera, you probably cannot tell that these stairs lead to nowhere.

I could not get over the size and beauty of the kitchen. Need everything in it, stat.

These walls in the twin’s bedroom can easily be moved around, according where the shot is and where the camera needs to be. Modular walls are awesome.

Dre’s closet of shoes was EPIC. I mean.

I think most viewers take the work that goes into set creation for granted, because, honestly, why would anyone really think about? The fact that we don’t think about the set design just proves that the crew is doing their job right because it feels natural and believable, and THAT is how you tell a good story. Kudos to the women and men behind this set design.

“black-ish” airs Wednesday nights at 9:30/8:30c on ABC, so make sure you catch it.
