To Theme or Not to Theme

Some people love the idea of having a single theme running throughout their apartment, either showing off a favorite hobby or television show, or just something important to the resident. Let's take a look at some of the more thorough designers out there to see how this idea works in the real world.


1. The "Oh My, You Like Football..." Theme


Is there a way to tell your family and friends you appreciate your local football team better than decking out one of your rooms in an epileptic's nightmare of team colors and logos? If so, I can't think of it. 


2. The Incredible Trekkie Theme

I'm all for sporting your love for arguably the best sci-fi television franchise to date, but even most trekkies have their limits. How are your guest supposed to figure out the holodeck with such a foreign interface? Also, I imagine the replicator doesn't really function....

3. The Steam Punk Paradise 

Nothing like taking weekly tetanus shots for the sake of  art in the apartment. This design might confuse your friends into thinking you're a themed restaurant, but I bet they'll never get bored of coming over.

4. O Captain! My Captain! 
Do you think this designer sleeps in a flight suit?

5. Red and White

One color away from being a patriot's dream home. The color theme makes a lot of sense given it can be a lot easier to add/subtract furniture, but it still must be incredible limiting.

So theme on, but know that your friends might think you're weird and you might have a lot of trouble keeping up with the design. You also might get bored of looking at the same colors/design. Then again, your apartment could be the best thing in your life.
