He’s Back! Six Harry Potter-Inspired Home and Garden Ideas from Houzz
As everyone's favorite wizard returns as an adult, we can't resist these Potteresque details for home and garden
Houzz is the leading platform for home remodeling and design, providing people with everything they need to improve their homes from start to finish.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the first book in the wildly popular Harry Potter series, was first published in June 1997. Nearly 20 years later, many Potter fans reread the books to prepare for the newest installment, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a script of the stage play that opened July 31 in London. If you also can’t get enough Potter, we found spaces on Houzz that offer a taste of Hogwarts, Hogsmead and places in between. Accio design!
Gryffindor’s common room includes a massive stone fireplace where students gather to study or celebrate after a big quidditch win. This grand living space has much of the same appeal.
With natural stone and bright lights throughout, this dining space evokes the grand, candlelit space of Hogwarts’ dining hall, prepared for a feast (pumpkin juice and butter beer not included).
A chic upgrade from Harry’s cupboard at the Dursleys’, this nook under the stairs includes a powder room with a secret red interior.
The library at Hogwarts is chock-full of old books and secret nooks. This library would fit right in, with its intricate spiral staircase and multilevel cherry bookshelves.
The Burrow, home of the welcoming Weasley family, has a warm, scattered interior with plenty of space for houseguests, similar to this eclectic farmhouse.
The steps down to this wine cellar are hidden behind a swinging bookshelf. Could a basilisk, also featured in Chamber of Secrets, be lurking here?
Check out 16 more Harry Potter-inspired spaces including a Dolores Umbridge-worthy office space in shades of bubblegum pink, a tiny beach house that could easily be dubbed Shell Cottage, and an all-black bedroom that would fit right in at Sirius Black’s haunting home at 12 Grimmauld Place.
