Portal Room with the lights on…
Oklahoma-based accountant, painter and gamer Lauren Jennings (aka “BlondeChell“) has created an incredible Portal-themed bedroom. The room is painted and decorated from top to bottom with an abundance of Portal artwork, props and mirrors that light up orange and blue to resemble actual portals from the video game. Her friend and engineer, Steve Gilbertson, helped out with designing and building the mirror portals. Lauren explains each step of her bedroom design process and shows off more great photos on The Portal Bedroom blog.
I looked all over the internet to see if anybody else had designed a Portal-themed bedroom yet that I could get some inspiration from. I found a few rooms, and some of them were pretty cool, but I just couldn’t find one that I absolutely loved. So I issued myself a challenge: To design from scratch a Portal-themed bedroom that while obviously Portal, would also be aesthetically-pleasing enough that any non-gamer could still look at it and go “Hey, that’s a really neat looking room!” rather than “what’s up with all the weird stuff on the walls?”
…and with the lights off!
