When her roommate got married and moved out last year, a Portal fan rented a loft by herself and turned her bedroom into a Aperture Labs test chamber.
"I found an awesome loft apartment (I've always wanted to live in a loft)," she wrote on a website chronicling the Portal Bedroom, "which came with brand new everything: new appliances, new carpet, new white walls. I thought 'Okay, this is my place, I can decorate it however I want ... I want to challenge myself to see how awesome I can decorate!'"
Check out the pictures above and below to see how Lauren, who describes herself as a "accountant/painter/gamer/adrenaline junkie/nerd/everything enthusiast," transformed her bedroom with infinity mirrors to simulate portals, an orange jumpsuit and props from Valve.
