Have you seen the Amazon original Catastrophe? The show, was co-created by Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney. Delaney portrays Rob Norris, an advertising executive who is traveling in the U.K. when he meets an Irish school teacher portrayed by Horgan. The two have a one-night stand, but when Horgan’s character becomes pregnant, Rob upends his life and moves to London where they ultimately learn to become a family.
The main characters have dealt with post-partum depression, infidelity, financial struggles and the daily challenges that come with sustaining a long-term relationship. While the show makes me laugh, I’m a bit obsessed with the set design.
Although Catastrophe doesn’t have a huge budget, set designer Samantha Harley “tries to make it as real as possible without being over the top.” You’ll notice the layers in the home such as “school books, and kids stuff everywhere… lovely layers to make it as relatable as possible within the palette and our resources.”
The lighting, wallpaper and photographs make the entryway inviting.

Their bedroom is painted a dark red with mismatched lamps.
The couch is tiny isn’t it? The color is great and it appears in a lot of scenes.
