Game of Thrones is the talk of the town right now; as winter has come and the night is dark and full of terrors. I am an avid fan of the books by George R.R. Martin as well as the TV series based on them. Though, every house has a rich history and and upcoming heirs to the iron throne, I am rooting for House Targaryen. If you too believe in Khaleesi, the mother of dragons, and want to add a Targaryen charm to your home, here are some tips to serve your purpose!
1. Wrought Iron
The sets of game of thrones are heavily iron clad giving a Tuscan feel to the backdrop. The sturdy chandeliers, beautiful lamp posts and the thrones everything is made from wrought iron. You can incorporate these elements to your home decor to make it look like a setting to behold. You can choose perennial items which shall fit in even without the theme(in case this is going to be a temporary).
2. Dragon Eggs
Gifted to Khaleesi on her marriage with Drogo, we all know what the dragon eggs turned out to be! You can recreate the dragon eggs to make up for a beautiful centre piece for your table. All you need is styrofoam and thumbpins! Paint the heads of the pins with a glossy nail paint to give it the glistening look of a dragon egg. This simple DIY project is going to be a hit without much effort!
3. The map of Westeros
Do you remember the table in Dragonstone carved out in the shape of a map of Westeros? Well the queen needs a map handy to prepare for her conquests! You can go bonkers and prepare a 3-d carved and layered map on your table or you can choose the option of painting it on the table top. It is a must if you are dedicated to theme entirely.
Being as famous as it it, Game of thrones has plenty of home decor accessories available online. You can go for the dragon stick-ons for your walls or a flag to pledge your solidarity to the house. Even the wall clock can scream of your loyalty towards Khaleesi. Well Targaryens are all fire and blood so why leave any stone unturned!
Decor trends change with time but a fan at heart always remains so! These tips will come handy if you plan on bringing GoT to your home decor without disrupting the the entire flow. You can easily go for a makeover in the future without much expense. So let your fandom flow and add a little of old Valyria to your home. Happy Decorating!
