Themed Home Office

Carrie Office

Haunt Style recently pointed to this interior decorating design, which included consolidating the customer’s extensive collection of Carrie memorabilia in the home office.

Preferring my spookiness to be more Gorey than gory I’m not wild about the theme (although I do think the blood-red walls are a clever touch), but I really love the idea of designing a home office or other space around a collection of movie posters or other related images. Walls full of Hitchcock movie posters or vintage absinthe ads would present a rich visual environment at relatively little cost. Paint the walls a complementary color and perhaps add a few related curios (a framed dagger, absinthe spoons, or whatever fits your chosen theme), and you’d have an appealing space that reflects your interests.

As a bonus, the posters are a good choice for renters because they don’t harm the walls (use those sticky hooks instead of nails), plus you can move them around or change them out if you get tired of them.
