a few of my favorite rooms: Showtime/Metropolitan Design House 2009

Metropolitan Design, the magazine, has sadly folded, but the Showtime Design House soldiers onwards, opening this year on Sept. 2. I'm excited as I was very fond of the concept: rooms decorated to reflect the themes of different TV shows from Showtime. A lot of other people seem to like it too -- after my pictures of Pete Wentz and Brendon Urie, this set gets the most traffic. This is partially because they're in a pool that's featured on Showtime's website, but I think they get a good bit of search traffic as well.

Anyway! On to the fancy design shenanigans:

Bathroom, inspired by Weeds.


Yes, that's astroturf on the floor. ASTROTURF. That is the best bathroom carpet idea EVER.

Dexter's family room, complete with cradle!


The Dexter rooms were actually kind of the creepiest. Fitting, I suppose, given the show.

Henry VIII's sexy bondage chair, in The Tudors living room


This was the one Tudor room that wasn't really, really boring. The dining room was particularly minimalist and disappointing and mostly full of pictures of Henry Tudor.

And, finally, Calinfornicatin' on the roofdeck:
