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:

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.

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:

Do a search for showers on Pinterest and you’ll find everything from “How to Decorate Using Unicorns” (yeah, really–I’m not making that up) to how to use shower curtain rings to organize everything from baseball caps to scarves. And, in the midst of all that, you’ll also find some amazing showers. Here are a few of the favorite–both indoor and outdoor–showers that I found:
