Marlovian/Shakespearean Decor

Decor Queens, make this Pagan’s boudoir over like a 16th C. Faustian bordello!

My rented bedroom is a pitiful size (boxy, three-paces long &W ideal), has no curtains and is painted in sandy cream, but I don’t want to think of it as a lost cause just yet. It has stained wood floorboards that are crying out for an Elizabethan rug and has a small alcove window that faces the setting sun...ideas?

I’m especially interested in drapes/curtains, rugs, lamps (standing) and ceiling light fixtures, hangings or pictures for the walls, side-tables or vanities (must be very small to fit) and candleholders.

I'm so sorry you missed out on Cher's 'Sanctuary' home decor catalog, OP.

I am piqued by that and did indeed miss it, R1, but that look predates the one I want by about 300 years.

And less of the Catlick paraphernalia, please!

I have the same problem as OP. My favorite place to troll for sex is the local Renaissance fair and I need a bed to match my costume. Please help.

Look up, Datalounge denizens! I need to Court a fair youth soon and want my chambers to entice.

You could start with red velvet curtains, OP! dark RED... like the color of blood from the goblet ritual to appease the Satyr king.

Thank goodness you people only saw how I decorated my office as a period drama, and not my home.

I am looking for a moody John-Dee type of feel, so red velvet definitely certainly fits the criterion R5. Would they look alright as curtain drapes, do you think? It would block out the light at the very least...

My issue is finding ways to make the room seem sumptuous & lusty but within very limited confines. Unfortunately I can’t have a four-poster as I can only fit a single cabin bed in the room I’m in, and with all my clothes clothes stored beneath so there’s no chance of a wardrobe or chest, either. All that will fit must lie on the walls or the floor, with the exception perhaps of a tiny table or desk/vanity.

Bump, fellows! Swive me but you’re all quiet as churchmice tonight...

A skull sat on a writing desk.

Or is that more Gothic?

I wouldn’t recommend a chest.

Here are some ideas for you.

Because your garret is so small, perhaps decorate it in the manner of a Tudor-era monk's cell.

R11 divine pix. I DREAM of decorative wood panelling, but alas my landlords forbid me to put them up. Unless I can stand them against a wall without fixings, my hands are tied. I’d love to cover up the ugly white radiator in the bedroom with a wood-panel screen of some sort, now I come to mention it.

Did they have Persian rugs imported into England in the 16th C., or is that too anachronistic?

Don’t tarry, DL! January sales are beginning and I need to start filling my basket with decor upgrades.

OP you are extremely tiresome and obviously have the quarters and the budget of a kitchen slave. I suggest you put your single bed on logs and hay, put a crude crucifix on the wall, a few pegs, to hang clothes, an ancient bucket to shit in on cold nights. the end. Now leave us alone with your impossible delusions. Anything suggested is a waste of time because you dont have the space or the cash.
