This is my dream, my passion to recreate the more beautiful parts of Tolkien's world into my own...To merge what I see with what I do not see, to have a blending of his world with mine...To be able finally to walk in the land I have so longed dreamed of...Come walk with me as we make this journey together...

Hobbit Colors for your home

Here are some suggestions I have for decorating with a Hobbit theme...

First if I may start with colors, I see soft yet warm colors. For example how about a soft sunny yellow room with red accents like pillows, vases, or red picture frames. Not any red but more of a deep warm red almost a rust but not too much so. In addition to that I see some wooden accessories like trunks and stools, bookcases all with wood tones. I would also add some white accents like window trim and perhaps some flowing curtains in a lighter but NOT sheer fabric. Some kind of soft cotton or textured fabric, maybe a tone on tone but nothing fancy. More of a soft country feel to it.

On COE there is a couple of pics that a woman posted with what I think is an awesome hobbit room! You really should check it out! She has used this cool window self sticking stuff to create a faux stained glass look. I love it! I know my local Home Depot sells something like that and if I get the opportunity will be applying that in my home at some point too.

Greetings, GG! First hantanyel for marking yourself as a follower on my blog! :)

I love your hobbit room comments here. I am trying to make my bedroom as such. I had bought some green wallpaper for the green of the Shire, though it would work for Elves too, but I think I may take it down because I doubt Frodo and Bilbo had green on their walls. I was thinking of getting some cream colored sheets too instead of the green I bought because I think that's the color they would have used. I have white curtains but they are sheer ones. I also bought a wastebasket and a toilet paper holder that I thought would work in nicely too and I painted my desk a nice brown. I already have bookcases of course. I love your ideas for trunks. I hope soon to find a walking stick that I can put in the corner and perhaps a pipe, though I wouldn't use it! Thanks for all your ideas! Do you have a link you could send for the COE site that the woman had of a hobbit room?

Namarie, God bless, Anne Marie :)
