This got me thinking. While working on a client's son's room, which will be superhero in theme, I went searching for products on the internet. Frankly, I've seen it all and most of it is too literal for me with logos, faces and the mighty corporate branding all over it. What if I took a different approach? What if, like I tend to, explored the theme in a less than literal way?
So while I dug into the personalities and characteristics behind the heroes, I started taking note of some really amazing products that speak to whom the superheroes are by inference. So after hours of gathering product picks for the boy's room, I ended up with a ton of ideas saved for a less than little boy version of a superhero room. While there might not be a demand for grown up rooms decorated in superhero, I though this would be a fun exploration.
I'd like to start by introducing you to my first of three storyboards. This first one explores, from a design aspect, a brooding, angry man, whose night life hiding behind a mask interferes with his relationships, compromising his shallow persona as a gregarious, millionaire playboy. You guessed it. Bruce Wayne a.ka. Batman, the Dark Knight.
I've chosen art, furniture and decor items that, in my opinion, reflect his life as a tortured soul, man and larger than life superhero.

I had to throw in the shakespeare bust as a tribute to the campy old Batman series from the 60's.
I'm wrapping up my Superman and Spiderman versions for posts 2 and 3. Wait until you see the x-ray vision twist on the Supe's man cave.
