Hello All, I need your help!
(Sorry this is kinda long)
My Wife and I are currently re-purposing our basement from a storage / rarely used work out area to a game room. We currently just use the dinning room for gaming, but are excited to make this change.
With that said, I need some input from you!
First some background:
We have the floor picked out. It will be foam puzzle flooring under a red carpet.
See foam here: https://www.amazon.com/Best-Step-Interlocking-Flooring-Protected/dp/B00BN3OTQ4
We already have a table from IKEA with two leaves that expand it.
See here: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20182315/
We have 2 Kallax 4x4 Ikea shelves Black-Brown along with 2x4 Black-Brown, & 1 2x4 Yellow if needed.

We also have a 3 door tall Besta unit with wood/glass doors from Ikea that I cannot find a good pic of at this time.
The room kinda looks like this (Forgive the bad drawing. Hopefully it translates well:
([ = side rooms, and ^ is the entry to the basement)

Clearly we are both very much into board games, but also:
- My wife is a fan of the following: Harry Potter-Hufflepuff, Lego, Stars, Legend of Zelda, Pikman, Toadette & Toad, Lord of the Rings, Animal Crossing, & Harvest Moon. Her favorite color is Red.
- I am a fan of the following: Penguins (any and all), Pokemon + Pokemon Go - Instinct, Wrestling, Yoshi, Zelda, HP - Hufflepuff (lot less than my wife), Hockey-also Penguins, Marvel, LOTR, Elder Scrolls, Ancient Rome, Classic Rock. Halo & Sonic were also big for me at one time. My favorite Color is Yellow.
Current items that can be used in room:
Yoshi Plush - Yellow, White, Light Blue, Pink (more colors will be added)
Pokemon Plush - Vaporeon & Piplup
Pokemon mini figures - Eevee, Sylveon, Pikachu, & Oshawott
Pokemon Go - Instinct Pillow
Marvel large photo print with almost all characters (excludes X-men and F4, because Marvel is silly )
Agent Coulson - Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D pop figure
Pittsburgh Penguins Banner
That's all I can think of at the moment.
So here is what I need from you:
1. Wall color choices.
-As I said, the furniture is dark and the carpet is red.
2. Reasonably priced ideas for decor: (Less than $30 preferred, Less than $50 OK, except on really rare occasion)
3. Any ideas we haven't thought of:
So far I have found:
Legend of Zelda Triforce Lamp:
Now fateful travelers the task falls to you. Can you rise to the challenge in helping us design the best game room possible!
Thank you in advance for your awesome ideas and helping this come to life!
