We’ve all wondered which Harry Potter house we would be sorted into had we been invited to study at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Each house is selected based on a wizard’s personality traits, which means they’re surrounded by like-minded people who share their interests, characteristics and passions.
With that in mind, have you ever considered how wizards from each house would decorate their own homes? Well wonder no more! To celebrate the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the Skirting Board Shop has designed four living rooms decorated in the styles of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Slytherin and Ravenclaw to give you an idea of what a real wizard’s home might look like based on their Hogwarts house.
The Gryffindor room is a warm and comfortable space with plenty of grand furniture, dark wood and brown leather. These features give the home a cosy yet confident ambience, synonymous with the fearless-but-friendly personality characteristic of Gryffindor students.
The Hufflepuff room is inspired by Scandinavian interiors, with lots of modern furniture and splashes of yellow and black (the house colours). Think bright and airy city loft apartments decorated with burnished copper and contemporary artwork.
The Slytherin interior is sleek and dark accented by the house’s colours, silver and emerald green. This sort of décor wouldn’t be out of place in a Victorian gothic home, lit by plenty of tall candles and finished with dark, mahogany skirting boards.
Inspired by the element of air, Ravenclaw homes would have plenty of windows and be furnished in dreamy, deep blue hues. This style of interior lends itself beautifully to period Georgian homes with delicate furniture, high ceilings and white primed architrave.
We’ve all wondered which house we would be sorted into; courageous and brave Gryffindor? Hard-working and patient Hufflepuff? Intelligent and creative Ravenclaw? Or, the ambitious and resourceful Slytherin? Well, based on your interior design tastes, which Hogwarts house would you be placed in?
