Well, this is exciting. A couple of photos have leaked from inside Titanic Studios in Belfast, the place where Game of Thrones shoots a lot of its interiors. There are pics of two sets: an old one that’s been reworked, and one that’s brand spanking new.
Let’s look at the reworked set first. Feast your eyes on the Red Keep throne room as it will look in Game of Thrones Season 7.

You’ll notice that the Seven-Pointed Star that previously hung over the throne has been replaced with a Lannister lion. After Cersei’s experiences with the Sparrows, it’s only to be expected that she would get rid of some of their iconography.
Okay, now for the really interesting one. A word of warning: looking at this picture is tantamount to reading a SPOILER.
We’ve known for a while that, when she arrives in Westeros, Daenerys will take up residence on Dragonstone, an island fortress previously occupied by her ancestors. To shoot Dragonstone, the production visited Itzurun Beach in Zumaia, which featured distinctive flysch rock formations, as seen below.

You can see some of those formations mimicked in the second picture: a shot of the throne Daenerys will be occupying during her stay on the island.
Two queens. Two thrones. One winner. Things are getting very interesting.
