Homes for Serial Killers, Sex Addicts and More of Showtime's Edgiest Characters

Metropolitan Home

Ever wonder where Hank Moody might conduct his late night (and for that matter, early morning, midday and afternoon) sexcapades if he were flesh and blood, not just a TV character?

Speaking of flesh and blood: Where might blood splatter specialist Dexter Morgan mix up a cocktail and kick back after a hard night of solo serial killing?

And the subject of serial killers naturally segues into Henry VIII -- where might the King of England have dined after beheading his wife du jour?

Rhetorical questions, these are not. A group of interior designers and architects actually sought to answer them when Showtime and Metropolitan Home magazine posed the challenge of turning the indoor and outdoor spaces of a 14,000-square-foot New York City penthouse into homage's to Showtime's hit series, including "Californication," "Dexter," "The Tudors" (all of which begin new seasons this Sunday, Sept. 27) as well as "Nurse Jackie," "Weeds" and "The United States of Tara."

The result? Sumptuous odes to each show that boast such apt furnishings and accessories, they might as well serve as sets.

Below, check out photographs of some of the rooms in the Showtime and Metropolitan Home exhibit, which visitors can tour on weekends through Oct. 18. (For more information on tour times and location, click here.)

Dexter Morgan keeps an ever-watchful eye over his dining guests, who sit on chairs inspired by the human skeleton. A gash along the table's flat surface mimics the cuts Dexter makes on his victims' faces.

The "Dexter" terrace evokes a somber sort of Miami, the city where the show takes place.

Sex-addict Hank Moody's "Californication" lair features Swarovski-crystal studded handcuffs affixed to the bed, as well as a full bar to nurse his other bad habit.

The "Weeds" dining room features hand-rolled after dinner "favors," a mossy, pot-like table cloth and a chandelier inspired by the "Weeds" episode in which Nancy's cohorts steal a church cross and turn it into a grow-house light.

The bedroom of "Nurse Jackie's" pill-popping protagonist is decorated with pictures of her poison of choice.

Henry VIII's dining room features an abundance of candles, as well as a crystal-studded bust of the King himself.
