Post subject:  LOTR Home Decorating

So, I posted back a long, long time ago about wanting to decorate my living space in the theme of LOTR. I love all of the characters and the descriptions that Tolkien developed because they were so rich in imagination.

I would want to do my own room in an Elven theme, of sorts. I think lots of wood, lots of green and gold, and lots of gauzy, flowing Lothlorien as possible. Strictly aside, here, the first time that I read the description of that realm took my breath away - I couldn't render what I visualized in my head onto canvas or on paper, and it's something that has always, always touched my heart.

I would want the common room or family room to be Bag End-ish - lots of books and ink wells, etc.

THEN......if I did have several rooms (which I likely won't), I would do one room with the idea of Moria, but without the gloom and doom. Moria was, before Durin's Bane was disturbed, a place of glittering opulence, underground. So.......that would be a real challenge.

Kitchen - dunno.

I'd love to read some members' own descriptions and thoughts on this subject. If you can't create your own home in a Tolkien style, what would you choose to do if there were no limits? Colors and themes?

Oh boy... the possibilities! LOL

This is probably not quite the style you are thinking towards but I always thought it would be amazing to have tiles on your floor that made up the map of middle earth!
