Portus 2008 Call for Artwork [24 Apr 2008|11:31pm]

Hello artists!

The Portus 2008 Harry Potter symposium, taking place in Dallas, TX this July is looking for artists who are interested in submitting their original artwork for display in our art gallery. It's a great chance to have your work publicly displayed, make possible commission connections, and to participate in a fun event geared towards Harry Potter fans.

We are also holding a charity auction that benefits LIFT, a literacy organization that assists adults in need in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. All proceeds from artwork donated to our auction will benefit this group.

We hope to get some great submissions this year!


The Crystal Ball - A Night Written in the Stars [23 Oct 2007|09:50pm]



Musical Guests DJ Evil D and Wizard Wrockers Draco and the Malfoys and The Whomping Willows!!

We will be taking our decoration inspiration from the Yule Ball and holiday scenes of the book. It should be a great place to showcase any designs, costumes, etc. The Castle itself is just amazing and has a very magical feel to it!!

Honeydukes! In miniature, at that. I have a large makeshift "dollhouse" that consists of 8 3-shelf bookcases attached together in a large 6-shelf tall "L" wall unit. It's awesome. This is just one of the rooms.

Details and pictures insideCollapse )

Spoilers, Spammers, & Trolls, OH MY [18 Jul 2007|09:14am]
[ mood | angry ]

I've deleted the posts and removed the member who was doing the spamming. I apologize for not getting to it sooner, but I didn't realise it was happening. Any new posts and new members will be moderated from now on, or at least until I feel everyone has had time to read the book (a few times).

I was browsing around and found this site http://www.veritaserum.com/galleries/index.php?cat=40

It has a whole bunch of set pictures from the movies, which I think serve as a pretty good reference. Enjoy!

Hermione's Potion Box [06 Jan 2007|06:06pm]
Some of you have asked that I post pictures of my Hermione's potion box. It is not the actual prop used in the movie, but rather a rare souvenir item given away to the cast and crew of Chamber of Secrets. Nonetheless, I think it's pretty cool.

Description and more pictures behind the cut!Collapse )

Hello All!

Sorry for the lack of activity. I have had quite a bit going on in my life recently that has caused me to have to put Hogwarts Design on a backburner. I'm back now and will be posting some things soon.

Hopefully we will once more become an active community! Soon we'll have the Order of the Phoenix movie and HP & the Deathly Hallows! Let them inspire us.

Does anyone have anything they would like to share? Questions, comments, anything?

I'm so glad I found this community! I have always wanted a Harry Potter themed bedroom and I was hoping you guys could help me out. I need to know where I can find a trunk like to one Harry takes to Hogwarts with him. Anybody have any ideas? Any help is appreciated!

[ mood | cheerful ]

This site is really cool. I'm too lazy to do any of this kind of stuff myself, but some of these ideas are pretty sweet. Keep rockin' dudes, best of luck to you and your Harry Potter decorating pursuits!

Oi oi - Long time lurker on here. This isn't exactly interior design on a massive scale, but I just thought I'd post a few photos of the potions kit I made for my missus for her birthday. I'm working on another one now, which will fit together a little better than this one, but I doubt it will be ready for a few months because I'm a bit rushed with things right now.

engorgio!Collapse )

Hope that wasn't too much of a mission to get through! When I've got the other box done I'll post some photos.

Hi, just joined [31 Jan 2006|11:44am]

I noticed this community off my friend bookpixie's page. I love antiques and interior design in general, and am interested in the Hogwarts design look.

Anyway, I had surfed this chandelier on eBay-- You have a day to go get it, you $funded types. This could be the centerpiece of your room!

DIY instructions- in it's concise form [28 Dec 2005|11:57am]

[ mood | blah ]

I was browsing through the community and thought how much more effective this place would be if there was a link to the most useful suggestions for HP themed decorating. A good example of this can be found at hp_costuming. There is a journal link on the user info page (hpc_ref)that conveniently lists all the main points and suggestions (complete with links to various useful sites) for the perfect Hogwarts Costume.

Perhaps we could take a page out of their book and do the same for the different Hogwarts themes? I'm sure the other members of the community would be willing to assist.

Trunks [22 Nov 2005|06:20pm]

Does anyone have any good screenshots of the trunks the kids use at hogwarts? I've looked but I can't seem to find any; maybe I'm just no good with search engines or don't know where to look or something.

Also, if anyone knows where one might buy a similar sort of tunk, I'd be very much oblidged for the information. (But don't say ebay. I'm trying. They're all very small/ugly/to-expensive-considering-the-faults.) Thankies!

To whomever watched Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, did you see Snape's Potion Closet!?

i want it so bad.

Also did all of you notice how many more views of Hogwarts they showed, especially the scene with the dragon, you got to see a lot of different views of the school.

And the Prefects bathroom was awesome as well, i just think the moving mermaid wasnt done very well.

Hello! I've been watching this community for quite a while now, without ever having posted. I've been getting steadily more and more impressed by the ideas you all come up with!

I'm looking at decorating at the moment (the house isn't mine, but still), and have been putting together plans for a common room style lounge and a bedroom. The house-owner isn't an avid HP fan although she did love the books, but loves the entire feel and style of Hogwarts. The lounge is Gryffindor style, as is the bedroom. Mostly, things have been going well, and I've been following links provided in comments in this community and gotten some brilliant ideas. But, we have come across a problem. Light fittings. What do you suggest? We need something for both the lounge/common room and the bedroom/dorm, and although the budget isn't our main concern obviously there are limits.

Thanks in advance.

Oh.... Also, I don't suppose anyone has any ideas as to how we would go about recreating the Prefect's Bathroom. That's for a different house, different person, but I see no point in making more than one post. Thanks. ♥
