The show comes on on Thursdays 8/7c on The CW. It is on it's second season now and according to the network's website "The Vampire Diaries is the story of two vampire brothers obsessed with the same beautiful girl, and battling to control the fate of an entire town. During season one, Stefan (Paul Wesley, "Fallen") and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder, "Lost"), returned to their hometown of Mystic Falls, Virginia, for very different reasons - Stefan was determined to get to know Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev, the upcoming film, "The Killing Game"), who bears a striking resemblance to Katherine Pierce, the beautiful but ruthless vampire the brothers knew and loved in 1864."
Today, we live in a world obsessed with blood sucking demons made sexy. There are countless shows and movies out today about vampires with bloody chins and all of them are majorly successful. Maybe our society's infatuation with vampires comes from the fact that they are all portrayed as young, strong, sexy, mysterious, and extremely passionate (or obsessed) about their loved ones. So, what exactly do the hunky Salvatore brother get as their bachelor pad? Take a look:
The Salvatore brothers live in an large ancient mansion with antique furniture and lots of paintings of their ancestors (or immediate relatives since they are 150+ years old).
Stephan has kept a diary since he turned into a vampire (obviously) and the brothers have a huge library of old books. The interior of the mansion is covered with old (mahogany, I'm guessing) hardwood as you can see and has a very dark atmosphere.
Traditional style furniture and lots of books and hardwood, exactly the way an ancient vampire should be living (or not living).
This gorgeous antique fireplace mantle is just so interesting. Notice the antique flag on top.
The beautiful Damon Salvatore by the natural burning fireplace. Notice the stained glass windows and the antique brass chopped wood container.
If you ignore the fact that he is about to torture someone, you can again see the great collection of books and the wall-to-ceiling built-in storage unit made out of hardwood.
As you can see, this TV show not only provides beautiful faces, but also beautiful spaces. Watching this show can be very entertaining if not by the following story, then by looking at the background.
