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:
