When talking about collections, you can’t help of think of people who enjoy comic books. When I came across some images on Apartment Therapy, I realized the covers or super hero art can easily inspire a color scheme in a space. Not to mention it can create a great party for a kid. One of my good friend’s daughter loves Spiderman. She even had a superhero themed party so I figured I’d not only showcase interiors with a love of comics but also shindigs with that theme.

If you want to have the look without actually displaying the books or pages, simply use primary colors on heavy pieces of furniture. Interior designer Miles Redd calls the above two spaces he designed “a kind of comic-book glamour.” Love what the high glossy doors does for the neutral wall palette. Especially dig the different hue on the sides as seen here.

The bathroom in her space had horrible yellow tile that she couldn’t change so she decided to make due with the hue by decorating around it. What better way than using Wonder Woman…

Just wanted to add her kitchen because although it’s way too pink for me, it’s still so much fun. I’d love to hang out here. This is a prime example of a home reflecting ones personality. It reminds me of the Nicki Minaj color scheme post I did.
