Greetings from Hogwarts

sometimes I can’t help but wish that Hogwarts was real

now I have to admit, I’ve never read the books… but its not the plot that keeps me watching movie after movie- its the interiors. On a trip home this past weekend my parents and I decided to watch Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; I’ve seen the movie before but it wasn’t until this weekend when I remembered how truly magical and captivating these sets are. There’s an old world sort of charm to these interiors- the colors are rich, the wood is dark, the light is warm, and everything is just a little bit tattered. Two and a half hours later, all I could think about was hanging out in the Gryffindor common room and how cool it would be if there really were such things as floating candle sticks.

    I always liked the old, more character , feeling of stability and timelessness , didn’t know you noticed. Colleen Daly said my home reminded her of a castle. Cool.
