'Rock the house

Tonight is a fitting finale to an incredible year at Shamrock Rovers as the Hoops play host to Tottenham Hotspurs in the Europa League. The club has a new sponsor and seeing the revamped jersey got me thinking about how to decorate our second bedroom, a.k.a. The Football Room, over the coming months.

NET-A-PORTER: Miss Ireland Holly Carpenter and mid-fielder Stephen Rice model the new kit
I love this framed poster (below) that celebrates the centenary of the club. Himself has had it some years. This will, some day, hang in The Football Room.

GLORY YEARS: The framed poster depicts Rovers through the decades

Indeed, the green and white palette of the Hoops makes for a striking combination in home decor.

Rovers wishlist

This green and white stripes pillow cover (approx €18.60 plus delivery) from Etsy's A Pocket Full of Pillows provides an instant Hoops hit. Just like your favourite player's signed jersey, there is only one available. The fabric used to make it has sold out, so you'd better be quick.

It's Ho Ho Hoops with this cute Christmas stocking (approx 13.68 plus delivery) from Prudence Octavia in Hong Kong.

The hoops of this cushion cover are subverted in this funky number (approx €24.32 plus delivery) by Mi Casa Bella in Southern Maryland, also on Etsy. Again, there's only one left!

For lots of gift ideas, including the new 2012 jersey, see Shamrock Rovers' online store.

22.15 Update: I forgot to include this Ikea Klippan sofa, which I spotted last week in the store. It costs €225.
