Pics of the Common Room

Hello troops! Here's some pics I took of the common room. We'll have the barrier extended between it and the History of Magic seen in the back.

So this idea for the Common Room is to have a circular table in every corner (this pic isn't to scale) for each house and they can dress up their corner as they wish. Hanging banners is going to be HUGE for Y2, I think. We can provide a candle or lantern for each table. Any other ideas?

Just what I say! I wonder if the lights could be dimmed? Maybe we could stack books in the middle of the tables like they did at LeakyCon. It was very...wizardry-looking.

I think a trophy case/table in the common room would be DAH BOMB.

I have the Hootenclaw banner I made for Year One that can either go in here (if the Hoots want it there) or in another room/area. If we want, I am willing to make the same style of banner for the other three Houses, but I'm sure the students will want to create their own.

I have a nice barrister bookcase we can use for a trophy display, if we want to mess with hauling it. It has four shelves protected by wood-framed glass doors, and could display a nice variety of small and medium sized trophies, certificates, Hoggstowne artifacts (like the Hoot brooch or Warren's keys), and such.

That may be just the thing. If it doesn't fit in the Common Room, we can put it in the Great Hall. sunny

Here is a crappy picture of what it looks like (I actually have two).  There are four shelves/doors, but we are doing some sorting and there are boxes in front of the bottom part.  HP books on top shelf for scale.

I have a question.

Are we still open to the idea to have individual common rooms, if the houses themselves pay for the room?

This was addressed on the FB page where you also asked it, but I'll post the answer here as well just for keeping track of what's been answered:
What houses choose to spend their own money to do is up to them.  So, yes, if a house wants to pitch in to get an extra room or pay full price for a suite to use as their own common room that's a personal choice.  However, there are a few things to keep in mind:

1. As house head if you choose to bunk down in that room you're only getting your portion of a REGULAR room, not a suite rate or a non-discounted room rate.

2. House room rentals are on the individuals/house - AEC and the HT event will have NO official sanction of that space and we will assume NO liability for that space.  

3. Additionally, if we have a "common space" competition this year that would only refer to the SHARED common room, not an additional rented space.
