Dexter Set Design

Recently someone tipped me off to Production Designer and Interior Designer Brandy Alexander’s online portfolio and I found myself studying the sets from Dexter intently. Now the storyline has changed dramatically since these sets were designed (no spoilers here – I know a lot of people get into these shows later in big Netflix marathons), but I found it really funny to compare Dexter’s perfect condo with Rita’s cluttered family house. Brandy has told us so much about these characters from the moment they were first introduced to us, as well as about their differences via the set design. Check out Dexter’s c clean modern pad full of iconic modern furniture…

…with Rita’s overstuffed, shabby un-chic house:

(it is a cool little atomic ranch though, isn’t it?)

    I love that bookcase/room divider in Dexter’s apartment

    “Shabby un-chic”! So harsh! But I completely agree. And it is one of those atomic ranches that has potential that isn’t realized.

    Always loved that divider bookcase too.

    As fans of the show know, especially in the earlier episodes Dexter had a little too much time on his hands… that said, I want his condo!!
