Harry Potter Home Inspiration – Slytherin

Happy Friday everyone! ¬†This week seemed to have just flown by and now its time for weekend fun yet again. ¬†By weekend fun I mean I’ll be taking photos of Carl while he studies being bored.

When I think about Slytherin I don’t think about Draco, any of the death eaters, Voldemort or even Prof Snape. ¬†I think about this guy.

Flint (1)

Yes, the captain of the quidditch team himself Marcus Flint. ¬†This guy’s face will forever be imprinted on my face, he just seems so mean and what nightmares are made of. ¬†If you think about Slytherin, the first thing I think about is great fashion sense, I mean none of those guys were in a competition to see who could wear the ugliest sweater. ¬†They took fashion risk that worked. ¬†If you are a born Slytherin you were most likely a pure blood that showed traits of ambition, cunning and leadership, but personally I would have begged that hat to put me in the house so I could wear the outfits. ¬†Its my two favourite colours wrapped in a perfect combo, well I don’t think I would have liked all unhappy vibes these guys oozed out.

Slytherin had a lot of great elements in their common room.  Yes, it might have been in a dungeon, but they sure knew how to live.  From leather couches ( faux leather of course), chess tables to make you want to learn the game,  window reading nooks to weird skull decor scattered around the place.

Nice, no?

Now Lets take a look at my take of the Slytherin Dungeon.

^^ Because, when you are a pure blood only the best oriental rugs will do for your living situation.

^^ Faux leather ottomans/coffee table? Why not, when you are slytherin.  You can never have to much of a good thing.

^^ I’m not a big fan of round dining room tables, but these ones sure make me feel a sense of comradery that will be shared with fellow pure bloods.

^^ Offbeat home decor, with a serious hints of disturbing. Yes, these are all aspects that make slytherin so unique. ¬†I’m serious considering trying out the little skull cacti! Its super cute.

Hope you found so inspiration.

Harry Potter Home Inspiration – Professor Dumbledore’s Office

Yes, its Friday and that means its time for Harry Potter home inspiration.  I will probably run out of steam with this soon, but until then I will enjoy these fun blog posts.

Professor Dumbledore’s office, is a rather cluttered space, filled with books, globes and memories suitable of a hundred and something year old wizard. ¬†His space is filled with bold statement pieces and walls covered in bookcases. ¬† The art work consists of a lot of portraits with big frames. ¬†His office makes me giddy with possibility.

Here is my take on his office.

^^ The first thing you have to get is a bold statement desk and all these have that chunky, wooden I should be in your office right now, feel to them.

^^ These bold chair is enough to make anyone feel like a headmaster of a school.  Remember you need something that will support your very large wizard hat when you lean back.

^^ These bold lantern theme chandeliers are the perfect take on Dumbledore’s office. ¬†The one kind of looks like a drone, but I like it.
