Keith Baltimore's space featureselaborate techniques including venetian plastering, an elaboraterenaissance-inspired archway, textured wallpaper, jewel tones, richvelvets and colorations, and a poison den to boot.
The dark passenger’s ultimate refuge: if Dexter could live openly,it would be here. From the books, to the furniture, to the use of newtechnology, this space serves as cocoon for the character’s alter-ego.Created by Michael C. Hall's own interior designer, Jeff Andrews, thisevocative home-office space of Dexter provides a contemplative area forplanning, scheming and committing evil deeds. The masculine space isheavily textured with leather flooring, animal skins, wallpaper thatresembles snakeskin and sinister touches throughout.
Altering the doorway with raised, dramatically altered platformcovered with black astroturf, visitors perception is challenged uponentering. At the end of the tunnel one encounters a monumental photothat has been wallpapered on the ceiling. A mirrored floor reflects acompromising view of mischief occurring in the bedroom, while lettersand clear acrylic furnishings convey a cryptic tone of Hank Moody'sliving area.

Designed to rejuvenate and recharge, the soothingbedroom features a movable chroma-therapy sculpture, interactive bookcase and a color center that alters the rooms interior color.
Inspired by her favorite show, Bohn draws from Nurse Jackie’s mosthilarious moments: a room of whimsy with surgical lights,hallucinations, and even a confessional. Lines on the floor alter thevisitors perspective, drawing them toward the bed, while the customizedlight fixture conjures images of surgical activities. A series ofx-rays line the walls and custom curtains made of latex surround thebed.
Children behave as adults and adults behave as children in thisedgy lounge, which showcases an interactive photo booth that willenable visitors to become one of their favorite characters.

Integrating space, technology, textures, and interior concepts,these rooms are defined by a series of “Big C’s”--Change, Clarity,Calm, Comedy, and Courage. The Clarity Lounge conveys a fairy taletheme, complete with giant rabbit sculpture, a living garden wall, a 3dtv showing butterflies and a bright pastel color palette. In contrast,the calming Contemplation Room provides a white environs to reflectwith a purple chair wrapped in gossamer.

The bath tantalizesvisitors with a video of a woman showering and using the toilet.
