Unlike most of the country, I have never seen an episode of Game of Thrones - please don't judge! But from what I hear, scores of you are lamenting the fact that Season 7 will soon be coming to an end. If you're contemplating how to cope without a weekly instalment of Westeros, Houzz can help. As you know I absolutely love Houzz, it really is a must-visit site for anyone even entertaining a change in their decor, and now Houzz editor and writer Bryan Anthony has offered some design tips to bring the style of the Seven Kingdoms into your home to keep you going until the next series.
Standing branched candlesticks were like floor lamps before electricity. When candles were the main option for illuminating a room, the ways to display them ranged widely. Sconces, candelabra and decorative lanterns filled with candles all were commonly used to light up a space. Today, incorporating a standing candelabrum, is an elegant way to add old-world charm to a home.

Since showers have yet to appear on Game of Thrones, it seems safe to assume that a soaking tub is about as good as it gets when it comes to bathing in the Seven Kingdoms. According to Houzz UK's latest Bathroom Trends Study, more than a third (36%) of respondents opted for a freestanding bath when upgrading their tub, showing that this style is still a desirable amenity for many.
Tables with decanters
When walking around a room planning out your next move, channelling your inner Tyrion Lannister, you can pause at a small table topped with a decanter to refill a glass with your favourite libation. Even if you’re not scheming to take your rightful seat on the Iron Throne, a table topped with decanters is still a lovely amenity.
