New to #FilmFriday? The premise is simple. Each week, I take a famous movie, and I put together decorating ideas and accessories to help you create the feel of that movie in your home. In the past, I’ve tackled classics such as Indiana Jones, The Godfather and Gladiator. This week, it’s the turn of everybody’s favourite boy wizard – Harry Potter.
Based on the best selling book series by JK Rowling, the Harry Potter movie franchise is the most commercially successful film series of all time. Through its eight installments, we follow a young boy as he discovers he is, in fact, a wizard, and is sent to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy – a magical and ancient castle, full of enchantment and mystery. I’ve put together this decor scheme to help you capture some of that magic, enchantment and mystery in your own home.
1) If you’ve watched the films, you’ll have noticed they contain an abundance of owls. Owls are used as the main channel for sending post – so you’ll often see them darting around. Harry also has a pet owl, named Hedwig, so they’re a key part of the films. You can have your own owl too, in the form of this decorative ceramic hooter. Sit it on your desk, drawers, mantelpiece or shelf. 2) Since Hogwarts is an ancient establishment, you won’t find any pens within its classrooms. Instead, the students use quills and ink pots. These, too, are an iconic piece of Harry potter paraphernalia, and you can find your own in the form of this official HP writing quill. From £37, various. 3) Cups are an equally rare sight. Instead of regular cups, staff and students drink from medieval goblets. 4) Wooden trunks are featured throughout the films, too. Lots of the students used them to transport their belongings to the school on the famous Hogwarts Express. Also, Alistair Madeye Moody was locked in a trunk by Barty Crouch Junior. Thus, a weathered trunk is a fantastic interior addition when constructing a Harry Potter decor scheme. They also make for fantastic storage in a lounge or bedroom – you can neatly pack away excess throws and cushions into them – or anything else you want to keep out of sight. 5) This gorgeous lantern has a strong Hogwartsy feel to it, and once it has a tealight in it, it will give off a very enchanting glow when the lights are turned down. With it’s metallic hue, it will add a little glitz into your scheme. 6) These Beldi Wall Tiles contain striking medieval patterns; perfect for stapling some of Hogwarts’ ancient qualities into your wall areas. 7) Create a decorative, stylish statement floor throughout your home with these dark parquet effect Vintage Wood Tiles, which are part of our Louisa Charlotte Collection.
