In honor of the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones, AD has created a way for you to decide which Great House is most likely to inspire your next decorating project.
You’ve embossed dragons on your dinner party invites and begged Rick Owens to make a modern version of the Iron Throne. You’ve even wondered if Lady Mormont eats burgers, Somewhere-style, at Chateau Marmont. But which Game of Thrones Great House is your destined domain? Grab your direwolf and read along…
IF YOU ARE…
A Rustic Naturist… Then model your home after WINTERFELL
If you prefer your fur throws bundled with honor, courage, and a thin gloss of moral superiority, head north to Winterfell. Their motto is “Winter is Coming,” and their decor follows through with shearling rugs, heated stone floors, and hand-woven tapestries that line thick, carved oak doors. Winterfell, former home of the Starks, can’t always keep out the Wildlings, but they can look damn good shouting war cries by candlelight—or, you know, artful Instagram filters. (Sansa and Arya, we’re looking at you.)
An Antique-Loving Extremist… Then model your home after KING’S LANDING
Liberty for Target? As if! You’ve got the original William Morris trellis wallpaper and matching floral curtains on display in your foyer. So what if you bought them at the execution—oops, we mean, estate sale—of a sworn (and now extinct) rival clan? Other hallmarks of a Lannister lair: fully stocked bars topped with gilded goblets, discrete shrines to fallen family members (with Diptyque candles, of course), and that Vetements top with the unofficial house credo: “May the Bridges I Burn Light the Way.” (It’s meant to be “A Lannister Always Pays His Debts,” but now that Circe’s flamed everyone out, why bother?)
A Classic Preppy… Then model your home after PYKE
You might be a Greyjoy if your house was once shot for an L.L. Bean catalog. The seafaring kingdom located in Pyke takes their nautical accents as seriously as their wartime rituals, with epic, vaguely Viking results. Forget lobster trap coffee tables—your sea-glass surfaces are held up with hard-won whale tusks procured by shipshape ancestors. (If only your kids didn’t use them as swords whenever the line of succession came up…) Naturally, your paint color of choice is Nor’easter Grey—even for your little girl’s nursery. After all, she could get to lead a navy, too—as long as her uncle gets over that pesky bout of misogyny.
A Bargain Hunter… Then model your home after THE VALE OF ARRYN
Buy it from Pier One. Say it’s from Paris. That’s the Vale of Arryn way, where appearances are everything and there’s always room for another goblet at the table—as long as it comes with a long swill of unfiltered, blackmail-quality gossip to share. Let the others houses slaughter each other and deal with the cleaning bills. You’ll win the Iron Throne with a John Derian serving platter and a mostly sincere smile. Just in case, though, you might want to splurge on those Louis Vuitton trunks from Etsy. So what if they don’t come with a guarantee of authenticity? 1. They look great. 2. They’re the best place to hide a dead body from the steady stream of houseguests.
A Luxury-Loving Maximalist… Then model your home after THE GREAT PYRAMID OF MEEREEN
Donatella Versace has a snakeskin monopoly, but she never said anything about dragon accents. That’s good, because this house has many odes to your favorite powerful pets, from Lalique’s dragon-topped decanters to Gucci dragon-decked suitcases. (You’ve also built a few fire pits in your vast floral garden for maximum mythical feedings.) Then there’s your extensive master bathroom suite, complete with a braiding station and walk-in closets for all your designer crop tops that would make even the Kardashian-Jenner clan dragon-green with envy. Ruling the world is tough, but at least in Meereen, looking good is very easy.
