For many years now, I’ve been a massive fan of Mina Lima and their work! How could I not when their graphic designs are genius and they designed for Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts?! The news that came out in the last few hours is that they have created a selection of Harry Potter wallpaper! I’ve been wanting nerdy wallpaper like this for a long time so this made me super excited!
I wanted to sit down and write about my thoughts on the designs you can get and which one I would personally buy to consolidate the status of my Potter Palace!
Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets Toy Story vibes from this wallpaper! Haha! That’s a good thing by the way in case Mina Lima ever find this post! I think this is so bright and colourful! Perfect for a little witch or wizard’s bedroom! If I was young, I’d have totally begged my parents to put this in my room!
This is a wallpaper that I’ve always admired whenever I’ve visited the Mina Lima shop and seen the Marauders’ Map design! It’s an amazing part of the books and the films so would be just as great in a bedroom too! Now if only I could say ‘I solemnly swear that I’m up to no good’ to activate it and make it move!
Maybe that’s an idea for the futuristic Mina Lima shop!
I want! I need! I must own! My inner Hermione and Scorpius are literally crying to have this immediately in my flat somewhere! It would either go in my bedroom or even in my little office where I keep all my books anyway. It has such a magical feel about it and I half expect the books to suddenly come away from my wall and fly in the air!
I’m going to admit and say that I don’t personally like this as a wallpaper. I think it’s just too much and might make a room look a little like a prison cell. Plus I’m not a massive fan of black and white on my walls so that might have something to do with it. I’m not sure where in a home this would fit but maybe my interior design friends would have a clue for any Potter fans tempted!
Finally we have the design that was made to become a wallpaper one day and that’s the Black Family Tree! It’s literally like a wallpaper in Order of The Phoenix so it was only a matter of time before it found its way into the muggle world and onto our shelves! This could be used in any room I think. I’d probably place it on a wall in my living room or even down a corridor.
Don’t take my word though…I’m stylistically challenged!
Overall I love all of these wallpapers regardless of whether they’re to my taste or not. They are very pricey so it would depend on your budget if you wanted it in your home. I think I’d only be able to use on a small wall because I’m a broke little half-blood and £89 is too steep for me to go crazy!
What do you think of these Harry Potter wallpapers by Mina Lima? Would you use them?
