Candy hearts? Gross. Red roses? Cliche. Love stories gone awry? Now you're talking. This Valentine's Day, we've rounded up several productions featuring doomed love, stalker romance, and storylines that are anything but sappy because romcoms aren't for everyone.
Don't Worry, Darling
This 2022 psychological thriller depicts the utopian life of couples living in an experimental community set in the 50s. On Air provided vintage designs along with a wallcovering for one of the film’s most iconic scenes; “a rich black-and-gold wallpaper with a cracked pattern,” which hints at a darker reality in the lives of these residents, explains Kelly Allen from House Beautiful Magazine.
This Netflix hit stalker-romance features a twisted love story set in the third season’s peaceful, Bay Area suburbia. On Air printed several elements that give this setting an authentically pleasant feeling. From wall borders to book spines, our work extends beyond wallcovering.

These details gave the fictional campus of Essex College an air of authenticity
Why Women Kill
