Elaborate, glamorous decor will evoke thoughts of King’s Landing, where the wealthy and powerful Lannisters reside. Living in a castle is no mean feat; the Lannisters have rich taste and a lavish lifestyle to uphold, which is reflected in their choice of decorative. Adorn your space with elegant gold pieces and rich colours to create luxurious looks fit for royalty. Drape plenty of classy fabrics and don’t hesitate to use ornate tiling for the floors. An accent wall featuring floral motif wallpaper is a flawless backdrop for a stunning crystal chandelier. Rich reds and twinkling golds adorn their family coat of arms – a colour scheme that can easily be introduced into your own home by adding red accessories.

Ok, so there may not be many Starks left to write about, but they were the original house of the North and so deserve a mention. Filmed in Ireland, the Stark lodgings certainly hold a medieval feel. Just like Castle Black, they need to keep heat in and the cold out, opting for fur throws and hearty log fires in each of the bedrooms. The colours are earthy, with touches of beige and grey on soft furnishings to complement the dark wood panels. To get the look in your own home, add thick woolly throws in browns, greys and blacks to your bed, or an animal inspired dark cow-hide rug to either the floor or the wall.

As seen in season five, the Alcazar of Seville plays host to the House Martell as their summer residence. The palace has beautiful ceramic tiles in a multitude of colours and features gold ceilings; oozing opulence and prestige. To design your own decorative boudoir, invest in Moroccan inspired lamps and an afghan print rug in rich red. From the southernmost city of Sunspear, surrounded by deserts, sits House Martell. By city name and banner, sun and spears are important elements to this design as are unique patterns with colourful tiles, many mosaics. Because of the warmer climate, outdoor spaces are key and typically blend with indoor spaces.

Daenerys Targaryen is on a mission to reclaim the Iron Throne with—after losing one to the White Walkers—a duo of vicious dragons by her side. With brief stints in several cities, The Dragon Queen has moved on from Dothraki tents into the dark and moody castle of Dragonstone. As avid viewers and fans of the Stormborn, see how we chose to represent this house. Fire and blood are the main themes of the House Targaryen coat of arms, which also feature their beloved dragons. Why not include accessories like this a twisted frame mirror, or a dragon scale inspired cream wool rug to get the Targaryen influence into your interior?

The men of the Night’s Watch guard the Wall on the Northern border of the Seven Kingdoms, and it can get pretty chilly at Castle Black. Layering is key for both outfits and interiors, and they don’t stray much from black, which represents their raven symbol. It’s minimalist in the dining hall of Castle Black, with solid wood tables and the glow of candle light. Why not recreate the look with stainless steel cups, a black sheepskin rug and wooden tea-light holders to really get the rustic feel of the North?
