Today, I’m sharing a before and after tour of the dining room from my Harry Potter-inspired house. Here are the living room and kitchen tours. I love this dining room!
Exciting news—this Harry Potter-inspired house is available to rent if you’re looking to vacation in Florida anytime soon. Here are the listings: AirBnb and HomeAway.
As you can see, the big changes in this space included the flooring (same as the entire first floor of this home, so the spaces flow together), painting the walls white, and swapping out the light fixture. I decided to get a light fixture that felt more like a chandelier made of candles. I was trying to find something that mixed the modern feeling I was going for with something that could maybe be found in the great hall at Hogwarts. Ha.
And since this is a five-bedroom home, it’s entirely possible there will be large groups staying here. So I wanted to get as big of a dining table as I could without it feeling impossible to move around in the space (as you have to exit out those back doors to get to the pool).
Simple, modern, but hopefully has some magical vibes too.
I added a collection of hanging bird cages with (faux) owls in one corner. I call it the Owlery. Ha! I also found this really fun tapestry that made me think of Professor Trelawney. The rug I choose is for both indoor and outdoor as I have a feeling wet feet from the pool area may walk across it from time to time. And I don’t know if you can really see it all that well, but we added a few board games and card games to the side table storage for groups to enjoy.
And since that back door leads to the pool area I figured I might as well show you that space here too.
We actually have more outdoor furniture being made but it wasn’t done in time for these photos (hopefully I can get some added to the listing photos eventually as the new furniture is, well, PINK, so that’s exciting). There is plenty of space to hang out, lounge, chill in the pool, chill in the hot tub, and with the screens and blinds you’re mostly protected from bugs—and have a decent amount of privacy from neighbors. The hammock is a great place to read, in case you were wondering. Thanks for letting me share! xo. Emma
