About FairyRoom


we propose to speak about fairies…

Tales of myth and magic belong to our most primal selves — they are as ancient as our first human ancestors, and as new as the latest movie release. JRR Tolkien says it best in his 1938 lecture, On Fairy-Stories:

“The realm of fairy-story is wide and deep and high and filled with many things: all manner of beasts and birds are found there; shoreless seas and stars uncounted, beauty that is an enchantment and an everpresent peril; both joy and sorrow as sharp as swords… Faerie contains many things besides elves and fays, and beside dwarves and witches, trolls, giants or dragons; it holds the sea, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are in it; tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted.”

At FairyRoom, we collect enchantment. We’ve brought together our favorite art, stories, music, crafts and ideas from the diverse world of fantasy culture. What is Fantastic to you? We invite you to explore.



The FairyRoom Team

We came together with the desire to create a well-designed, intelligent and comprehensive site for everyone who loves magic, fairies and folklore. We had Fantastic plans! Our goal: to maintain the highest editorial standards as we explore the otherworldly (and sometimes outrageous) fantasy genre. Welcome to FairyRoom!
