4 Must-Haves For A Harry Potter-Inspired Living Area

Bring magic into your home with these finds


There is something about the amazing world that J.K. Rowling created that sticks to the reader. It isn't just about the wonderful characters or the enganging story that makes you want to go to Hogwarts. Every time I go back to reread the books, I'm reminded of the important lessons one can learn from it—friendship, compassion, loyalty, standing strong in the face of adversity, and love. 

Whether you're still finding a way into Diagon Alley or patiently waiting for your Hogwarts acceptance letter, here are some design ideas that can add a little wizard flare to your Muggle space:

Harry and his classmates always need to finish tons of essays and assignments so they truly maximized their study tables. For days when you have to work from home, you can use something similar by finding a desk with vintage charm. 

RL Tip: Don't want to use it for work? Try styling a vignette! You can use old books, antiques, and other rare finds to keep within the classic theme.

There weren't a lot of candles around the Gryffindor common room, but these definitely look like something Professor Trewlaney would have in Divinations class. Display a couple of these along with other knickknacks to create an eccentric atmosphere in your living area.

Do you ever imagine walking around the castle at night? Since you can't create light by whispering Lumos, consider using rustic lamps around your home as an alternative. These pieces aren't just functional, they are a charming addition to your decor, too!

Who can forget the moldy burgundy sofa by the fireplace where Harry, Ron and Hermione love to hang out? Give your living room the same cozy vibe by adding a couch that can fit a bunch of your friends. For a more grown-up feel, pick out something made from upholstered leather in warm colors to keep it classy.
