Subtle Harry Potter-Inspired Wall Art That You'll Want To Hang In Your Home

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

While it's been over 20 years since the first Harry Potter book was published, the series has no shortage of devoted fans. Whether you fell in love with the books or the films, it's hard to forget Harry's adventures at Hogwarts with Ron and Hermione. Between quidditch games, casting spells, and detentions, the trio battled giant spiders, a basilisk, and even Lord Voldemort. Along the way, they learned important lessons in friendship, love, and bravery. Professor Dumbledore wouldn't have it any other way.

Are you looking for a way to bring your passion for the wizarding world into your home? Why not hang up a Professor Sprout-approved Herbology poster in your kitchen or design a living room gallery wall with your favorite moments from the series? There are plenty of subtle ways to incorporate a little Hogwarts charm into your living space. The following Harry Potter-themed decor, including prints, paintings, and signs will add the perfect touch of magic to any room without going overboard. 

Pretty herbology charts

Harry, Ron, and Hermione learned all about magical plants in Professor Sprout's greenhouses during herbology lessons. In their second year, they repotted mandrakes and learned about the plant's special properties. While mandrakes look like little babies (with the screams to match), they have the unique ability to wake up petrified basilisk victims. This came in handy since a basilisk was running loose around Hogwarts that year.

However, you don't have to be a student of herbology to appreciate these beautiful charts from Etsy. The posters showcase the mandrake, venomous tentacula, dirigible plum, and more magical plants from the series. The detailed color illustrations are paired with short descriptions of the plant's properties. These posters would perfectly complement a kitchen herb garden or breakfast nook area. You can frame one or more and hang them up on a wall for a simple yet sweet decoration.

Quidditch-themed wall art

You don't have to be a star seeker to love the Quidditch World Cup. This magical sporting event brings together witches and wizards from all over the world to watch the top quidditch teams compete for victory. Between the quaffle drops and snitch sightings, there's plenty of entertainment and celebrating.

You can bring the spirit into your home with this vintage Quidditch World Cup art from Elephant Stock. The wrapped canvas features a light blue color with stars and multi-colored text celebrating the 422nd games. It would look great on a living room or home office wall next to some greenery or floating shelves. While the piece is chic and subtle on its own, you can always take it one step further and show your passion for quidditch by leaning a broomstick against the wall.

Carved wooden sign

In the seventh book of the series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," Harry learns about the tale of the Deathly Hallows. In the story, the Peverell brothers attempt to fight Death with the help of a different magical object. One brother uses the powerful Elder wand to kill opponents, the second uses the Resurrection Stone to bring his loved ones back from the dead, and the third has an invisibility cloak to hide from Death. Only the third brother is successful, and this cloak is eventually passed down to Harry from his father. Harry is able to unite all three of the Hallows for a time to defeat Voldemort, making them an essential element of the series.

Honor the power of the Hallows with this wooden wall sign. The black carving features a scene from the story of the Hallows where the three brothers confront Death. You can hang it against a white background to make the details pop or a deep purple or blue for a more subtle contrast. The sign also comes with double-sided tape so there's no need to deal with nails.

Beautiful in their own right, these colorful pictures feature simple words to live by like "Be Brave" and "Be Curious." While your kids may not be old enough yet to watch the movies or read the books, they can still be around magical elements from the series as they grow up.

Graphic coffee tapestry

Everyone loves a good pun, right? Especially a Harry Potter-themed one. This black tapestry features the expression "Espresso Patronum" with Harry Potter in coffee cup form. The coffee cup is wearing a red and orange Gryffindor scarf, a lightning bolt scar, and round spectacles while casting a spell. While the correct spell from the series is Expecto Patronum, coffee lovers may prefer using this version to repel dementors.

Available in four different sizes, this lightweight tapestry will add a fun and subtle nod to the wizarding world to your living space. You can hang up the full-size version on a bedroom wall with some string lights for a magical effect or fold it down to a smaller size to display in the living room or home office. It's the perfect decoration for the spot where you like to enjoy a morning cup of coffee.

There is a crest for each house with coordinating colors, as well as a Hogwarts crest displaying all four houses together.

The best part about these LEGO wall art pieces is that you get to make them yourself. The set comes as individual LEGO pieces that you can assemble and display in the house of your choice. Not a master LEGO builder? No worries, detailed instructions are included to make the building process painless.

Unique wall lamp

Who can forget Harry's confusion the first time he tried to find Platform 9 3/4? Luckily, he ended up noticing the Weasley family run through an unmarked brick wall in King's Cross Station and was able to catch the Hogwarts Express on time. 

Finding the way to Platform 9 3/4 is not always easy, especially for new wizards. This glowing sign will help light your way aboard the train to Hogwarts. You can attach the lamp to the wall outside a bathroom, along a hallway, or use it to illuminate a shadowy corner in your home. To secure the plastic lamp, use the included metal wall mount and hook or drill it into the wall. Alternatively, you can display the lamp on a table or nightstand. The battery-operated sign requires two AA batteries, and you can turn it on and off with a switch on the back.

Potion making canvas

During Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts, his potion-making skills suddenly blossom and he becomes the top student in Professor Slughorn's class. The reason for his success is a book called "Advanced Potionmaking." Specifically, a previous owner wrote helpful tips and notes for each potion in the book, allowing Harry to expertly mix up perfect draughts, remedies, and elixirs in class — much to Hermione's annoyance.

If you fancy a good potion, consider hanging up this stretched canvas wall art in your home. The vintage poster shows the cover of Harry's textbook with a steaming cauldron. The soft purple, gray, and black tones will complement a variety of color schemes and add a spooky vibe to any room. You can hang it up in a witchy corner with crystals and greenery or lean it against a wall for an undone look.

Statement-making mirror

Want to see your heart's deepest desire? Just look in the Mirror of Erised. Maybe you will see a new pair of socks like Dumbledore or maybe you will see yourself winning multiple awards like Ron. Just be careful not to get too entranced by what you see, as Harry did in the first book. This powerful mirror drove many witches and wizards mad over the years, and they couldn't look away.

If you feel up to the challenge, you can decorate your home with the Mirror of Erised. This ornate mirror features a regal design and a mystical inscription. While the mirror is not exactly subtle, it will help create a magical atmosphere without going overboard or too heavy on the Harry Potter theme. Decorating with mirrors is always a good idea since they can brighten up dark rooms and provide the illusion of more space (via Woodstock Furniture & Mattress Outlet).

Pretty painting

Ever since Hagrid said the words, "Yer a wizard, Harry," Harry Potter's life was completely turned upside down. As the Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts, Hagrid is a comforting presence around the castle and in Harry's life during his time at school. Harry, Ron, and Hermione are frequent visitors of Hagrid's cozy hut, located on the edge of the Forbidden Forest. Whether stopping by for a warm cup of tea or helping smuggle out a baby dragon named Norbert, there's always something going on at Hagrid's home.

This beautiful painting shows the exterior of Hagrid's hut with some of his famous giant pumpkins growing in a field. The Forbidden Forest and a towering mountain in the background add to the calming nature scene. Even people who have never heard of Harry Potter will enjoy the beauty of this comforting picture. Use it to add some autumnal flair to your home during September and October or display it year-round for hygge-friendly style.

Snitch art print

The only way to end a game of quidditch is for the seeker to catch the Golden Snitch. This means that games can sometimes go on for days at a time. The small and elusive winged ball is hard to see, especially on sunny days. However, Harry managed to successfully catch the snitch and bring the Gryffindor quidditch team to victory many times. In the series, the Golden Snitch also helps Harry defeat Voldemort in the final battle. It "opens at the close" to reveal the Resurrection Stone. 

Beautiful, unique, and symbolic, the Golden Snitch is a great choice for decorative wall art. It's printed on 100% cotton paper with a matte background. This versatile painting will complement a variety of different decor styles, including shabby chic, vintage, steampunk, and gothic. Display it next to a bookshelf, entryway, or stairwell for a subtle nod to "Harry Potter" in your home.

Stunning clock

Tell time in true wizarding style with this magical wall clock from Pottery Barn Teen. Witches and wizards need to keep track of time too, even if they happen to have a time-turner at their disposal like Hermione. Whether running to lessons, appointments, or meeting friends, a wall clock is always a useful addition to a living space.

A piece of art in its own right, this timepiece features gilded accents, Roman numerals, a spellbinding design, and aluminum hands. For a visually appealing display, hang this clock up against a dark background like dark wood or deep gray. Or, add more wizardry decor around the clock to create a themed gallery wall. You can secure it to the wall using the included mounting hardware. It will make lovely, and practical, decor for a home office, bedroom, or living room wall. Just be sure to add one AA battery to get the clock up and running.
