Our Harry Potter-inspired bnb house has five bedrooms. So, of course I had to make four of the bedrooms themed after each of the houses of Hogwarts. This master bedroom is located just off the kitchen and dining area. It’s a very spacious room (quite a bit bigger than the master bedroom in our own home, ha!) and since the full bathroom that is attached to this room already had green tile that I didn’t plan to change, I decided to make this into the Slytherin-inspired room.
Here’s a before and after of this room. Clearly updating the floors was a big change for this space. Other than that, all we really did was paint and then decorate/furnish this room according to the theme.
Each room that is themed after a Hogwarts house has a banner on the door, indicating which house it is. I also chose to add one colored accent wall in each room, picking a color that I felt represented the house—so of course our Slytherin-inspired room has a dark green wall. There is a king-size bed, side tables, a large dresser, TV, and a few fun/spooky decor items. I also chose to add black velvet curtains, which I actually have in my master bedroom at home as well because they do such a great job of blocking light in case you want to sleep in.
Keely helped me make the prints that hang above the bed. I wanted to have some fan art in each room that had something to do with the houses motto or history from the books/movies. In the Slytherin-inspired room, there’s a print with the definition of Horcrux, one that is a “recipe” for Polyjuice Potion, and then one is the words to one of the unforgivable curses (the killing curse! ah!). And I chose Green Agate from Behr for the accent wall. See the room resources below for more details. Are there any Slytherins out there reading this? Do you feel I did your house proud? 🙂 xo. Emma
Room Resources: area rug, bed frame, curtains, side tables, side lamps, black dresser and then I added other pull knobs from The Home Depot, green vase and throw pillows / HomeGoods, comforter, black skull / JOANN, house door banner, snake and skull banner / Walmart (halloween decor), bathroom rug. Accent wall paint is Behr Green Agate.
