Sherlock has an eclectic range of imagery attached to his bedroom walls, but all are reflections of his experience and characteristics.

Most prominent is a large coloured periodic table on the wall by the doorway. Elements are presented with an increasing atomic number, grouped together in spaced blocks to compile those with similar properties together whilst also separating those that do not.

The creation of the modern Periodic Table is credited to the Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869. Sherlock has a framed photograph of Mendeleev on his wall in the corner by the window, hanging below a smaller framed copy of the Table. The image of Mendeleev seen here was photographed in 1897, when he was aged 62, and is freely available on the internet in high quality.

Hanging above Sherlock's bed is a traditional Judo certificate, with his name added - シャーロック・ホームズ.

To the left of Sherlock's bed, hanging above his dressing cabinet, is a copy of the famous 1848 daguerreotype photograph of the American gothic author Edgar Allen Poe. Poe is widely credited as the creator of detective fiction, and his hair style shares an uncanny resemblance to Sherlock's…

Also, according to Mark Gatiss, placed within the room is a mocked up photograph of Sherlock and an obese Mycroft in their youth - we haven't spotted it as yet though!
