Welcome to the Gryffindor common room!
I dunno about you, but to me the common room looks different in each movie - so this set was a little weird to me. Some bits looked familar, others I was like 'really? It was like that?', but obviously it's the common room all the same.
One thing that I loved was although it's obviously just a set indoors, the lighting and stuff makes it look like you can see out into the grounds through the windows, especially the one on the staircase! What's funny also is the fact that pretty much all the furnature is exactly my style and it's easily my version of an Ikea showroom haha.
Unfortuantly I didn't get a proper photo of this as it was still super busy and we had to rush past, but can you spot Proffessor McGonigals portait on the wall?? An wonderful touch.
Again, I love the decor and would adore a room with red velvet curtains adorned with gold stars. Just like everything else I photograph, I like to capture the details and different views to what others show, so I love that I caught the little rubbish bin as well as the trunks with their initials on.
To think most of those books are old phone books covered in leather is hard to imagine.
