Here is a small update I made to our modern Harry Potter-inspired Bnb the last time I was there. This is my favorite accent wall decor to hide a TV—empty monochromatic picture frames. The living room wall behind the TV was just feeling a little empty and unfinished to me. Originally, I didn’t want the wall to compete with the Platform 9 3/4 inspired wall that is right beside it—I was afraid it might feel like too much or be too cluttered visually. But once the space was done, I realized it just felt a little unfinished, so I added this accent wall.
I actually have basically the exact same type of wall in my personal home, just in green. So that’s how you know I love it. Ha. It’s super simple to install (just command strips and nails) and fairly inexpensive if you can thrift all your frames, which is what I always do. Then it’s just a matter of taking them apart, cleaning or removing any hardware as needed, painting, and hanging them up. I love how the TV kind of disappears into the space, but when it’s on and in use it’s actually even more visible with the darker background.
That’s the main update I wanted to share, but might as well throw in a couple more things from our Harry Potter-inspired Bnb.
In the Gryffindor bedroom, I added a Marauder’s Map to the wall along with some vinyl wall decals of footprints. Mischief managed!
And in the Ravenclaw room, I added this open book accent wall, which I shared more about how to DIY here. Thanks for letting me share! xo. Emma
