What I may do, if finding real tatami turns out not to be an option is to use a Swain/Zebra type mat, but when not in use for Aikido practice, cover the floor with tatami goza mats.
Go for the green mats. They are a nice subdued green meant to imitate the color of tatami. It's not perfect but a lot closer than the blue or red mats. I believe both Swain and Zebra offer them.

I would also like to find a resource for some japanese woodblock prints. They would go great in the room.
You can start HERE, lots of links to Ukiyo-e websites.

You might also want to check out some Sumi-e paintings.

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
