SF/F Decorating Inspiration: Hunger Games

Books & Mags, Geek out!, Moodboards

Rae Nudson recently posted a room plan she created on the basis of Mary Robinette Kowal’s novel Valour and Vanity. Inspired by Rae, I made this moodboard evoked by Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games.

Hunger Games Moodboard

The room plan is based on my imagining of District 12, not on actual descriptions from the books and/or movies. I tried to keep it simple and utilitarian with some creature comforts. It’s also a mix of items unequivocally from our world (there’s no way Katniss would have arrow wall hooks, for example) and the kinds of things I imagined Katniss might encounter in her daily life. I see it as a multi-purpose room: bedroom, living and dining space combined. In addition, many items would be DIY-ed or DIY-able.

…I imagined a bedroom with a vibrant accent wall and luscious, chocolate-colored bamboo floor with a sheepskin rug:

The accent wall is painted with concentric rectangles, separated with white lines, and a white-framed rectangular mirror rests in the center above the bed. White modern furniture is softened by the bedding, pillows and curtains in yellow and green tones. It’s a grownup version of this boy’s room, if you like:

For those preferring a little less color, I created a calmer room with just the green on the accent wall:

I also envision a wall of tall windows and a warm oak floor. The fresh color palette nods towards the tropics; the coral red and yellow perk up the cool shades. Below is a full source list.
