Be honest, don't you sometimes miss having a themed bedroom devoted to your favorite things, the way you might have had as a kid? (Mine was unicorns EVERYWHERE.) To our great joy, the folks at design site Modsy know this yearning deep within our fangirl and –boy hearts, and they have shown us the way to make a real, grown-up homage to Game of Thrones.
We're not talking character posters, printed sheets, and armchairs made to look like the Iron Throne here. Nor are these replicas of, say Cersei's decadent bedroom or the tent from Daenerys' days on the road with her Dothraki khalasar, though, sure, those would be fun to spend a few nights in — get on that, hoteliers of the world.
What we have here are grown-up rooms, inspired by four major houses of the Seven Kingdoms, plus a bonus White Walkers room, because those guys were rather specific with their aesthetic too. The spaces don't scream Game of Thrones, but if you're looking, they will remind you of that world. And that's something we might need once we're in GoT withdrawal after the finale.

House Lannister is Mediterranean meets Colonial traditional," Wood says. "Elements of bone inlay, mixed woods, metals, and detailed carved woods combine to make the interior feel a touch rustic and industrial but also luxurious."
It's all about finding some antique-ish carved-wood pieces, and mixing and matching textile prints.
"Despite the fact that it is covered in florals, the space feels bold which reflects the cunning power of the Tyrells, and their memorable female leadership," Wood says.
mixing classic furniture and patterns with modern prints.
Plush carpets and a few blue and black accents make Modsy's version seem a bit more comfortable than he'd require, but Wood still calls the mostly white space "austere."
"Start with an all white base, and build out blue and black into the accent decor," she advises. "Stick to more rustic pieces, such as wood side tables and raw edge pieces."
