If you want to make over your home in Game of Thrones style, watch closely. Xfinity has unveiled the TV show-themed homes that it teamed up with Airbnb to create for its Watchathon week (which kicked off on March 31). These time lapse films, from agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners, show how three pads in three cities were transformed to make viewers feel like they are living inside their favorite show. Fans staying inside the Game of Thrones home in San Francisco are spending the week with a "direwolf" ( a trained wolf dog) and dining on massive turkey legs and goblets of wine while they watch the series among candles, animal skins and gothic decor. Guests inside the Chicago Boardwalk Empire home received themed wardrobes (complete with flapper dresses, tuxedos and other 1920s garb)to wear while playing craps. The Wire home, in Baltimore, comes with binoculars and other police gadgets, as well as a "suspect wall" from which guests will put together clues to help with their investigating. Guests also received day-of-the-week sweat pants, kickstand tablet cases, koozies and onesies to help them get int the mood for the TV-fest.
