This Harry Potter Design Shop Is More Than My Heart Can Handle

It's like, tingly good.

Posted on

So humans, be prepared to reverently, shudderingly, LOSE. IT. over London's newest and most magical pop up shop from the designers behind the films.


The shop, from design duo Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, is nestled into Soho's Greek Street and is basically a little slice of the Wizarding World.

The pair met working in the Harry Potter films and now own their own studio in London.

And it's just as charming and magical as you'd imagine.

Just like they've done in the films, MinaLima have infused their shop with detail and atmosphere so you can't help but feel transported.

On display are some of the coolest designs featured in the film.

So many stunning book covers, so many colourful and clever Weasley's Wizard products.

And plenty of things you may have never noticed.

Like these top notch Daily Prophet ads that probably only ever saw a millisecond or two of screen time.

Look around SUPER closely on weekends, and you might even find Miraphora and Eduardo hanging out on site, happy to answer questions. (Their lips are sealed about Fantastic Beasts, though).

Their calligraphy skills are like, whoa.

... *swoon*.

Here's your chance to grab a legit AF Hogwarts letter.

And can we just talk about how the house that hosts the pop up itself is the absolute perfect spot?


The raw wood floor on the top floor is slanted and uneven, in perfect step with the Harry Potter set aesthetic – and not even by design. It just so happened to be that way when Mina and Lima scouted the location, and they knew it was the right place.


Or the print room.


Fun fact: Eduardo was the real life editor of the Daily Prophet. He wrote all the headlines and often included shout outs to friends and family in the copy.

And if you can't get enough design, MinaLima's muggle work is also on display.

They're also responsible for these sexy classics, and a brilliant line of prints, journals, post-cards, and they've even got an adult colouring book.

Like, you can be the proud owner of THAT^^^^.

It's also down the road from the Palace Theatre, where Harry Potter and the Cursed Child just happens to be showing in the West End.

That's Miraphora and Eduardo modelling for Ministry ID cards, FYI.

So if I haven't convinced you to become a permanent squatter there yet, let me leave you with this mic drop...
