I often find interior design inspiration in films, and this adaptation of the comic book “Kingsman: The Secret Service” looks to be full of great sets that can spark all kinds of ideas for your space. Let’s take a look at a few of them:

The Tailor Shop

To my American eyes, this could not be more clearly traditional British interior design–lots of wood, a leather easy chair, framed photos, and brass accents. Some rooms that use the same elements to great effect include these:

Secret Entrance

Every spy movie needs a secret entrance. | japanesetrash.com

What’s a spy movie–especially a funny one–without a secret entrance? I especially like the brick and tile work and have rounded up a few examples of how that translates into interiors:

Brick floor & subway tiled walls; terrific! | japanesetrash.com

Loving the look of this kitchen with brick floors and full walls of subway tile.

Green subway tile always makes for a great look. | japanesetrash.com

The green subway tile here looks great with wood and stainless steel–as good as it does with brick.

Gorgeous green subway tile used in this Barcelona hotel. | japanesetrash.com

I hope these examples have given you some ideas for how films can inspire your home decorating projects. Have a look at the trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service — it looks good, don’t you think?

p.s. A couple of the pieces in these images are available on the Japanese Trash Shop; here they are for your convenience:

It has been a few weeks since I’ve gone through all my bookmarked design sites and pulled interior design ideas and inspiration from them to use on the blog. For the past couple of months, I’ve been posting my own series of entries and relying less and less on what the rest of the interior design blogosphere is doing to generate content on Japanese Trash. And I’m currently working on a new way of focusing my posts around a central idea each week, and I don’t know yet if the concept of Leftovers–something that has been a part of Japanese Trash since the very beginning (the first Leftovers post was on Nov 8, 2010)–will be part of that. So I thought I’d post these latest; who knows, they may be the last.
