Excited that the new series of Game of Thrones has started? Live like the Lannisters and style like the Starks with these home accessories inspired by the hit fantasy show
Games of Thrones may not seem like the most obvious place to find decorating inspiration for your home, but in fact it offers up a world of textures, forms and finishes to have fun with.
Take the much-coveted Iron Throne itself. Forged with dragon fire from the swords of vanquished enemies, the regal seat of the realm of Westeros is quite the work of art. While its pointy metal design may not be particularly suited to comfortable seating, we love the look of its jagged shapes and tarnished sheen, both of which translate beautifully to the attention-grabbing mirror…
Winter is coming… well, actually, it’s a long way off (hopefully), but if you still feel you need something to snuggle up in of an evening, you could do worse than than a sumptuous throw. A generous furry throw is just the sort of thing you’d expect to see the Stark family keeping cosy under at Winterfell. Don’t worry, we’d only recommend one made of faux fur rather than wolfskin.

If you favour the stag insignia of House Baratheon, then you’re in luck – you’ll be nailing the woodland trend as well as the Game of Thrones look. This decorative deer head made from precision cut plywood will lend a noble air to any wall.

There are two things you need to know about the Lannisters. The first is that they always pay their debts. The second is that they like the odd tipple or three, which makes any regal looking drinking apparatus a fitting choice for a Lannister-inspired table setting. We’ve found just the thing below, it even bears the family’s signature lion.
As every good Thrones fan knows, House Targaryen is represented by a dragon. Sadly it’s a bit tricky to find dragon-skin products in the real world, so how about these stylish scale-print crockery set instead? We reckon the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen, would be proud to eat her dinner out of them.
Once you’ve created a home fit for a king or queen, kick back, crack open the mead and enjoy season 7 of Game of Thrones.
