I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it here on my blog before, but I like to consider myself a bit of a Harry Potter fan. I’ve read all the books, seen all the movies, and even introduced my 4-year-old to the wonderful world of magic. So imagine my delight when I spotted that Pottery Barn had introduced a brand new line of Harry Potter homewares to their teen section?!
Now, I know what you’re thinking! You’re thinking, ‘Why would you want to shop in the teen homeware section, Lou?’ But trust me when I say, there’s nothing in the collection that respectable adults like myself wouldn’t like! And for today’s post, I’m going to talk you through my top picks from the whole range. So why not make yourself comfortable and let me tell you all about it?
You may remember a few weeks ago I shared my current bedroom wishlist. And on it, I included a duvet cover set that had wizard cats printed all over it. I picked out that particular duvet cover set because I thought it was quite Harry Potter-esque. So I don’t think it will come as any surprise that my first pick today is an actual Harry Potter duvet cover and sham! (Or a duvet cover and pillowcase if you’re in the UK, like me).
The bedding itself is white and has intricately designed gold owls, moons, and stars printed all over it to look like an enchanted night sky. It’s super soft and snuggly, and I think it would look absolutely wonderful in the dorm or bedroom of any Harry Potter fan, no matter what age they are.
Next, like any amazing Quidditch Seeker, I have my beady little eye on this super cute golden snitch clock. I mean, just look at it! What’s not to love?! The clock is fairly small in size and has a little door at the front which opens to reveal the clock face, and two wings to make it look like a real golden snitch! It would be sure to make a magical addition to the decor of my room. I just love it!
Being quite a girly girl, I have a lot of jewellery that gets scattered across my dressing table every night instead of being put away in its proper place. So I’d love to get my hands on this absolutely stunning jewellery cage, which has lots of room to keep all of my valuable little trinkets safe. The cage is inspired by the one that Harry keeps his pet owl, Hedwig, in when he travels to and from Hogwarts in the iconic books and movies. And it rotates to allow easy access to all your earrings, necklaces, bracelets and more.
The cage features a gold finish, and I think it would look superb sat on the dressing table in my room. I’ll have to keep my fingers crossed that some lovely person treats me to this for my birthday later this month as it’s most definitely my favourite piece from the whole collection!
Even though I hate seeing my own reflection staring back at me, I love having mirrors in my room, as I think they can make the space around me seem so much bigger. And I think this elaborate arched mirror with its vintage feel would add a touch of class to the decor in my bedroom. Built to last a lifetime, the mirror is made of glass with an MDF backing and polyurethane frame. It has an antique finish and is the perfect size to let you check your style from head to toe!
If you’re a massive Harry Potter fan, you’ll be sure to know about Pottermore, a website where you can find out everything there is to know about Harry and the Wizarding World. Once you’ve signed up to become a member, you can take a quiz to be ‘sorted’ into one of the Hogwarts houses. And when I took the quiz, I was told I was a Hufflepuff. Yay!
PBteen have created a range of gorgeous canvas backpacks dedicated to each of the Hogwarts Houses, and my favourite one just happens to be the Hufflepuff one. I’m sure this is mainly due to the colour of the backpack, but I like to think it’s because I really was meant to be a Hufflepuff! The backpack features a handle and adjustable straps, silver and nickel hardware and 3 pockets – one of which is perfect for holding a laptop. I love that it has the letter ‘H’ and some other cool patches sewn onto it as well. It’s the coolest backpack I’ve seen in ages!!
Shh! Don’t let them find you. You can now secretly explore Hogwarts each night with PBteen’s awesome Maurader’s Map Pillow. Soft, plush, and oh-so-magical, this pillow glows in the dark to give your bed a bewitching new makeover. Just how cool is that?!
It’s definitely no secret that I love a good drinking cup, and these Hogwarts House Tumblers are right up my street! The tumblers themselves are made of porcelain to ensure they keep your favourite beverages piping hot, and they each have a silicone lid. The tumblers come in four different colours to depict each of the different houses, and I love all of them so much that I don’t think I’d be able to decide which I would buy if I had some spare money to spend. Can I just have all of them? No? Oh dear!
Next up I’ve picked out this amazing table lamp inspired by Hedwig, who is Harry’s pet owl. The lamp is rustically designed with a bold, bronze finish, and it has a linen shade at the top. I think this would look amazing in any dorm room so students can use it to compose top-secret messages, study the Maurader’s Map, or even do their actual homework late into the evening.
Both my kids love using a lapdesk when they’re doing their homework, drawing, or even eating. So I just had to feature these incredible house-themed super storage lap desks from PBteen’s Harry Potter Collection as one of my top picks! They are a clever, on-the-go study solution for children in school and teenagers in college or uni alike. What I love most about these lap desks is not only do they have multiple storage compartments inside, but they also have a built-in wooden pencil ledge to stop your laptop, books, pens, and papers from sliding around while you work. It’s the perfect portable table!
And last but not certainly not least, I adore these house-themed knitted throws from PBteen’s Harry Potter Collection. Every witch and wizard should have a comfy throw to cuddle up with at night. Whether you’re a Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin, display your loyalty with a cosy knit throw in your house colours. It would make the perfect finishing touch to any Harry Potter themed bedroom!
And there you have it, my top picks from PBteen’s Harry Potter Collection. I hope you enjoyed it. And if you live in the UK, don’t panic! Pottery Barn ship out here so you don’t need to miss out. I already know what I’m going to be treating certain members of my family to this Christmas. Accio, bankcard, I think I’m gonna need you!
