From chilling dystopian futures to haunting depictions of what happens when advancements in technology reveal the worst in humanity, Black Mirror earned its title as one of the most compelling shows in modern television. Ever since the series became available on Netflix, I’ve jumped on the bandwagon by binge-watching all four seasons with a growing fascination for the show’s impressive technologies and, of course, their jaw-dropping interiors.

 

The question of owning technologies is still in the hands of discerning tech developers, but we can still take inspirational cues from the stunning interior spaces that make up the worlds of our favorite Black Mirror episodes. In this spoiler-free round up, we take a look at modern interiors inspired by the hit TV series.

Fifteen Million Merits

In this alternate reality, people reside in uniform quarters surrounded by television screens that make up all four walls. They make their living by riding stationary bikes to earn ‘merits’ that act as currency to purchase food, items, and virtual accessories for their avatars.

Their interiors feature sleek, functional spaces with a dark color palette. From boxy screens to LED panel lights, the episode’s main characters navigate around clutter-free environments that exude a futuristic vibe.

Similarly, this gym in Belgium recreates the same modern feel by opting for clean-cut black flooring and raw concrete ceilings. The recessed lighting also gives way to a more high-tech look and make for a comfortable gym experience. Think of it as the workout space of tomorrow.

The ‘Greta cookie’ is set up in Greta’s kitchen, showing an almost all-white open plan living and dining space in the background. There’s a metal pendant lamp in the dining space and a minimal round dining set.

All-white interior spaces aren’t just clean to look at. They also feel larger because of the light drawn in from white surfaces. And if you share the same fondness for neatness and order with Greta, white-dominant spaces might be for you. To avoid stark spaces you can play around with texture and shape to add depth to the room, like in this kitchen.

A nostalgic walk down memory lane, San Junipero brings back the good old days of the 1980s with an episode set in a beach resort town where two young women meet.

Kelly, an outgoing party girl, first meets shy and introverted Yorkie in a hip night club in San Junipero. True to the neon-filled spaces of the 1980s, the night club flashes in bold purples, bright pinks and electric blues.

The 80s marked the birth of MTV and the reign of pop icons Michael Jackson and Madonna, which translated into interiors bursting with flair. Playful decor elements like statement lighting, funky neons and eccentric furniture are the perfect combination for an 80s-themed space.

Even in a contemporary space, you can reference the era’s pop culture by adding an arcade game of your choice. After all, the 80s was an optimistic and playful time for great music and fun games.

Nosedive

An uncanny resemblance to today’s social media obsession, Nosedive depicts a world where people rate each other for every interaction. Their ratings act as a form of ‘social credit’ that can influence where they live, and the kind of transportation they take.

Lacie Pound, the episode’s main protagonist, lives in a pastel-colored world where everyone acts nice and cheerful. The nicer they are, after all, the higher their chances of getting rated high on a scale of one to five stars. The episode is a visual feast for pastel lovers, reminiscent of the candy-colored era of the 1950s.

There are plenty of reasons to incorporate pastel in your interiors, especially with the proven versatility of the soft hues. Whether in pink or green, accent walls and vibrant decor can add cheerfulness to modern and minimal spaces.
