Hermione Granger is a heroine of the Harry Potter book series, and she has a very personal style. Whether you want to decorate a room to reflect your admiration for it or you want to imitate its bedroom (featured in one of the Harry Potter books), you can choose the furniture and colors that will make the environment look great. By reflecting Hermione's interests and choosing furnishings and décor, in no time the room will be able to show your love for this character. You can also recreate the room that was shown in the movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Method 1 of 3: Reflect Hermione's Interests
Step 1. Display books with pride
Display books (including the Harry Potter saga) in a prominent place in the room. Hermione is known for her love of reading and books. You can buy a special bookshelf, or use books as decorations and create colorful stacks sorted by colors or sizes. Hermione is a very organized person with a Type A personality, so any special method of organization will make you look even more like her.
For example, you can organize the books in alphabetical order and place them at the head of the bed, to show your love for reading
Step 2. Create a study corner
Create a study area that is unique to you. Whether you want a bean bag with a lap desk or a formal desk, choose an area to do your homework. Hermione is a diligent and studious student. I would never have a bedroom without a study area.
If you don't have a lot of space, try a lap desk for a mobile study area
Step 3. Make the cats stand out in the decoration
Hermione loves cats, especially her cat Crookshanks, who looks similar to a lion. You can decorate the room with pictures of cats, cat pillows, or even feline-themed sheets, to highlight Hermione's love for these furry creatures.
To pretend you're Hermione, you can place a framed photo of the Crookshanks from the film by the bed
Step 4. Incorporate magic with a wand
Buy or create your own wand to place on the nightstand. You can wrap a stick in epoxy resin and paint it with a gold spray to achieve the aged and natural look of Hermione's wand, or simply improvise with a toothpick.
Hermione has a great imagination, so feel free to use any household item as a magic wand if it suits you
Step 5. Use the Gryffindor colors to decorate
Use the garnet, gold and black colors from Hermione's (Gryffindor) house as inspiration for the colors of the curtains, bedding, and carpet. You can experiment with the different shades of these colors, or combine them with the shades you like best for a personalized look.
Since many outfits come in gold, you can swap the drawer handles for ones that are gold or use gold string to tie the curtains
Step 6. Hang a Gryffindor symbol
Hermione is a proud member of Gryffindor, so she shows her spirit for her home through some design on the wall. You can hang a Gryffindor banner or use a wall decal to highlight the house mascot (a lion).
Feel free to get creative. Even hanging a big letter "G" could be great as it would represent both Gryffindor and the Grangers
Step 7. Avoid decorating with brooms or golden snitchs
Unlike other Harry Potter characters, Hermione prefers to focus on books rather than flying or playing Quidditch. He's not the athletic type. To have a room as close to Hermione as her, put aside ideas that have to do with brooms or Quidditch, as these are not the kinds of things she is interested in.
Step 8. Paint a quote on the wall
Ask your parents for permission and use paint or an indelible marker to write your favorite Hermione quote on the wall. You can place it next to a mirror, where you could practice spells, or on the bed, so you can look at it before going to sleep at night. Make the design template in advance and using a pencil, so that the final product looks its best.
- Rereading your favorite chapters from the Harry Potter books can give you some good ideas about the quote you want to paint.
- Try using a gold marker to highlight the color of the Gryffindor house as well.
Method 2 of 3: Choosing Furniture and Decor
Step 1. Hang up framed photos of friends and family
Decorate the room with framed photos to show your family and friends. Hermione is a good friend and loyal to her loved ones, especially her Muggle parents. Use framed photos to keep those you love close by, in the room.
You can buy frames that have their own base or make a custom frame to hang on the wall
Step 2. Choose a trunk equal to Hermione's
In the books, Hermione has a traveling trunk that she uses to store her things when she arrives at Hogwarts. Buy an antique trunk online, or get a used one at a flea market. You can pretend it's a traveling trunk and you're unpacking your things in the Hogwarts bedroom. You can use it to store clothes, toys, shoes or whatever you need.
Step 3. Choose a bookshelf
Buy a nice shelf to store your reading materials. Hermione is an avid reader and would need a shelf with plenty of room to store her books. Choosing a large bookcase will give you room to grow your personal library and may even inspire you to read.
Step 4. Get a desk
Hermione loves to study and can come off as a bit of a know-it-all. To make sure you're always on top of homework, like Hermione, choose a desk where you can do your work. Make sure the desk chair is comfortable, and feel free to add accessories (like desk organizers) to keep pens and other knickknacks in order, just like she would.
Step 5. Add posters of the Harry Potter and Hermione saga
Express your affection for Hermione and the Harry Potter saga by decorating the walls with some posters of that theme. You can show your favorite Hermione quote, a cool moment from the movies, or a photo of Harry, Ron, and the group. Virtual poster stores, like Red Bubble, have a large selection to choose from.
Step 6. Add storage boxes to organize
Hermione has a very strong Type A personality, and she loves to be organized. Keep the room tidy and Hermione-style by buying some storage boxes. This will help you keep clothes, school supplies, and electronics stored and tidy.
Step 7. Choose Hermione-themed bedding and curtains
Show your affection for your favorite heroine with prints of this theme on the bed and curtains. Many online stores sell spell-patterned duvets and Hermione-patterned sheets. If you buy a few, everyone who visits the room will know where your loyalty is headed. You can also buy fabrics online and even make your own curtains.
Method 3 of 3: Recreate Hermione's Room in The Deathly Hallows
Step 1. Choose white and shabby chic furniture
Look for classic, white-painted furniture to mimic those that were in Hermione's room in The Deathly Hallows. If you can't find any white furniture you like, buy a used piece of furniture in a shape you like and paint it white or cream with the help of an adult.
Make sure to paint in a well-ventilated area
Step 2. Choose upholstery and bedding in shades of purple, blue, and pastel green
Hermione's room in The Deathly Hallows is really feminine, with lots of pastel colors. Use some of the pastel colors that you like best as inspiration for the color of the walls, the carpets, the sheets or even the curtains. To make a room unique, you can mix solid or patterned colors as you wish.
Step 3. Add feminine touches to outfits and accessories
Hermione's room in The Deathly Hallows is elegant and casual, with some feminine touches. Imitate their style by swapping the drawer handles for lavender or clear glass handles. You can also hang a chandelier, tassel valance, or other feminine pieces.
Cushions add comfort and can bring out some of the pastel tones in the room. Look for floral or feminine cushions, with lace or other three-dimensional details for a unique look
Step 4. Pick some floral accents for the wall
Hermione's room in The Deathly Hallows features prints and paintings with flowers and plants. Online or at your local craft store, look for wall pieces that have nature as their theme. You can choose photos of your favorite flowers to frame, or just select what appeals to you. Whatever natural image you like, use it as a wall decoration.
Step 5. Create a bulletin board for important photos and brochures
Hermione's room in The Deathly Hallows has a bulletin board decorated with photos of her family and important mementos. Create your own to mimic Hermione's. You can cover a standard bulletin board with fabric and use thumbtacks to post your favorite photos and souvenirs. Mix in pastel colors of your choice or add a bow for a feminine touch.
Step 6. Add a bench to the end of the bed
Hermione's room in The Deathly Hallows has a lavender-colored storage bench at the foot of the bed, so she can stay organized. Hide any spare pillows or other out-of-season clothing on a pretty, feminine storage bench, like Hermione's. You can line an existing bench with a luxurious fabric, like velvet, or buy one online.
Step 7. Display the books in a way that they stand out
Hermione's room in The Deathly Hallows has a bookcase that surrounds the wall and is next to the bed. Buy a nice bookshelf or stand a few books to decorate the room. You can put them on the windowsill or display them on the desk, to show off the collection.
- Remember Hermione is very neat, so keep the room clean.
- If you really want to give your room a magical feel, try to find empty, tinted bottles and label them with mysterious names, like "frog roe."
- Avoid neon colors.
- If you want a Hermione themed room at Hogwarts, try adding a calendar with impossible times.
- Try to show interest in reading and books.
