Two years ago, vampires "came out of the coffin".
This is the premise for HBO's True Blood, a show I am currently addicted too.
Sookie Stackhouse, telepathic bar maid, met her first vampire (Vampire Bill) since vampires made themselves known to the public. Her life since has been full of serial killers, werewolves, shapeshifters, and fairies with an unknown agenda.
Just another day in small town Bon Temps, Louisiana.
But at least she lives in a great big Southern heritage house, that in it's current fourth season has gone through a major face-lift (courtesy of everyone's favourite vampire, Eric Northman, secret vampire sheriff of the area).

|Sookie's Home, Season 4: Vampire Eric gives everything a good sprucing, painting the clapboard a soft yellow.|
The biggest renovation this season is Vampire Bill's. His sprawling antebellum home was, although majestic, in a state of neglect when we were first introduced to it.

|Bill's Office: I like the lighting in this room; recessed lighting hidden in bookcase shelves, the shaded chandelier.|
|Bill's Living Room: The white trim on the walls is a nice touch.|
The vampire bar, Fangtasia (vampires love puns), remains the same.
|I love the padded door.|
|I'm a Trubie.|
I also highly recommend the series the show is based on, The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris. Or anything by Charlaine Harris... she's just that great.

Warning: True Blood is amazing, but it's HBO (lots of sexy stuff), so take it with a grain of salt.
