Aesthetics Wiki

TGIF Crush is a sitcom interior design aesthetic that was popular from the 1980s until the late 1990s. The term was coined by designer Steves Peeps in 2023. It is named after the iconic TGIF block that aired on ABC.


The set designs of Miller-Boyett-styled comedies intended to create aesthetically interesting and attractive places that frequently mirrored the characters' personalities and the comic tone of the episodes. These sets were crucial in strengthening the storyline and immersing the viewer in the world of the sitcom. The initial traces of this style surfaced in the early 1980s and gradually faded as the 1990s decade progressed.
