“You could be great, you know, it’s all here in your head, and Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that.”
― Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Lazy Monday off here and decided to do something a little different since I’ve been somewhat absent. We had a chat on the Pearl Bayou Facebook page earlier today about what Hogwarts House some of us are in and it put me in a MOOD, y’all.
(I am a Ravenclaw, by the way.)
It got me thinking about the different personalities each house incorporates and the types of traits encompassed. And I started to wonder: What would a Slytherin living room look like?
There are TONS of aesthetic boards out there for each house – therefore, I decided to try making my own.
Each picture below links to the shop where I found each product. I didn’t use any searches like “Slytherin” or “Hogwarts House” – instead, I tried to find each individual piece by “hunting.”
Isn’t she beautiful? I can just imagine curling up with a whiskey and Coke to plot my enemy’s demise – if I had an endless supply of funds and enemies, that is. (Click the picture to check out the sofa listing.)
To me, this piece of art screams: Danger and Beauty. Imagine vases full of peonies across an antique mantel, under this painting on a wall of brick and old mortar. (Click the picture to check out the Etsy shop I found it in.)
A. Collage. Of. MIRRORS along emerald painted walls. So edgy and chic all at once. You’d have plenty of time to check your flawless complexion before a little wand and cauldron play, ifyouknowwhatimsaying. (Click the picture to read Traditional Home’s article on decorating with mirrors.)
This DIY is a little more Game of Thrones but it gave me Slytherin vibes aplenty. Made me think of Hagrid, too, and his black market dealings. (Check out the article to see how to make your own dragon eggs by clicking the picture.)
This black and gray marbled-rug reminds me of water in a cave – dark and drifting under stalactites. Would look awful menacing and gorgeous under that green couch. (Click the picture to see it listed on Rugs USA.)
Last but not least – the room needs to smell sharp and cool. Couldn’t think of a better combination of fragrances than Sea Salt and Sage. Plus, the apothecary jar look? Perfect. (Picture links to sale page on Candle Delirium.)
So, Slytherins. Any thoughts? Would you use this room to scheme or to seduce? To relax or to revenge?
