Sweet! Harry Potter room decor!
This Harry Potter Decor Will Transform Your Room Into Hogwarts Heaven We’ve partnered with the HARRY POTTER™ Collection from PBteen to share bewitching tips for decorating your bedroom with the most spellbinding home decor.

“Designed by Larissa Garcia of Cassal Diseño Designs, Piaf Restaurant, the resort’s fine-dining French option, received a gold medal for interiors. The design inspiration for Piaf was a modern twist on France in the 1940’s to 60’s, when Edith Piaf was at the top of her artistic career. Rich designs, details and dramatic spaces were achieved with both natural and authentic elements. Damasco marble, green Onyx, petrified marble and high-gloss wood were all specially treated to create high-contrast light effects full of shadows and highlights. By playing with lighting, heights, textures, materials and colors, Garcia created a series of ambiances, each with its own charm and feel. To offer each guest a unique experience, each space has at least one dramatic element that distinguishes it from the rest such as a marble-covered center column, an undulating crystal lighting curtain, and antique mirrors in the walls. The design unites as a whole with the furniture selection, a warm color palette and smaller decorative elements. In addition to Piaf, Cassal Diseño was in charge of the interior design for the resort’s duplex Wellness Suites and multi-bedroom Governor Suites. These suites feature cool marble flooring and cream furnishings highlighted with burnt orange and sea blue soft furnishings for punches of color.”

Horizontals play a big role as well, beginning with the shower walls, which are stacked with white 16-by-3-inch tiles. The vanity wall is punctuated by a series of horizontal planes: the porcelain-topped double-sink vanity, matched-grain American maple drawers, triptych of medicine cabinet mirrors and fixed transom.”
