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

    It's like, tingly good.

    If you've ever seen a Harry Potter film and not gasped in joy and reverently, shudderingly whispered: "Those details though!", then I am not entirely sure you are human.

    THOSE. DETAILS. THO.

    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.

    *gasps, shudders, whispers, faints*

    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.

    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.

    SO. MANY. MINUTE. DETAILS.

    And of course they looked after some of the most iconic, recognisable props, too.

    They just spent their days labelling Dumbledore's memories, nbd.

    G.A.S.P.

    ... *swoon*.

    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.

    The designers added their own special touches to the four storey house, too.

    They've got a ridikulus sense of humour.

    And don't even get me started on the staircase.

    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.

    Or, well... any of the rest of it, tbh.

    I MEAN.

    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.

    And the best part?

    IT'S ALL ON SALE.

    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...

    House of MinaLima is open through February 2017 at 26 Greek Street.
