Creative Theme Rooms in Vacation Homes


Star Wars Theme Room

I’ve seen a lot of theme rooms in vacation homes. In fact, I’ve written about them before:

This is How a Theme Room is Done!

But in the last year or so, I’ve seen homeowners really stepping up their game and pushing the creative envelope. With the renewed popularity of Star Wars, that franchise is popping up more and more in bedrooms. But I’ve never seen anything quite like the room above. Check out some more angles and note the R2D2 trash can in the bathroom.

In another home the theme was Pirates. Think “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride at Disney World. I actually heard someone from Disney did some of the work in this room.

Of course Frozen theme rooms are still going strong. This one was unique with the changing LED light display.

I can’t wait to see what designers and homeowners will come up with next.

Homeowners Get Creative With Interior Decor


In one of my recent posts I featured a home where the designer really got creative in some of the theme rooms. Well, I was equally impressed by a vacation home I photographed this month where the owners themselves added some very unique touches to the home. Take the New York City inspired loft complete with a taxi-cab pool table, subway signs, brick floor and full-sized wall mural of the skyline.

Then there’s the outer space room. I don’t think I’ve ever seen silver sheets!

In the bathroom, the cabinets look like control panels made by adding computer parts.

This is the “Around the World in 80 Days” room. Notice the sandbags on the bed to complete the hot-air balloon motif.

Then there are the treehouse and drive-in movie rooms with artificial grass.

And finally, who doesn’t need a boat in their room?

It’s fun to shoot rooms where a designer or owner has clearly put thought into the details of the decor.  From what I’ve seen in recent months, more vacation home owners are making an effort to get creative and have fun with their designs.

 

The House on Stella Street


It had been more than a year since I was at Bella Vida resort in Kissimmee, FL when I got a call from a new client asking to photograph a house there.

The property manager is also a decorator and I thought she did a nice job with a beach vibe in the dining area. From the color palette to the decor, it made me feel like sinking my toes into the sand.

I was originally just going to post that picture, but I went back a few nights later for some twilight shots.

I always check the forecast before a twilight shoot because while some clouds can make a sky interesting as it changes color; too many clouds can ruin the shot.

Just my luck, the direction I was shooting in had a dark, ominous cloud. Across the street was clear and beautiful, but this is what I had to deal with:

Well, when life gives you lemons…use a sky replacement!

The home also has a cool color wheel on the pool light. Check it out:

Before and After: A Tale of Two Villas


It’s been awhile since I’ve done a “before and after” series (you can see the past posts linked at the end of this one). I thought you might enjoy the night and day differences between the images a client had before and what I delivered. The client was so pleased, he said it looked like two different  villas.
