Harry Potter home decor that Muggles cannot spot

"Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four Privet Drive, were proud to say they were perfectly normal, thank you very much .." (Harry Potter and the philosopher stone, sentence 1, chapter 1)

With 500 millions books sold worldwide, everybody have heard of the bespectacled wizard and pronounced at least once the name of the "One who must not be named". However, if a large part of the readers are obviously enjoying the stories and became official member of pottermore, most of our generation, and I speak about the 20's y.o., don't assume very much to be fan of what seems to still appears as a "children story".

Harry Potter is much more than a kid story, but today we won't discuss this point.

Hidden in plain sight, this delightful details will remind you of how much you hate Umbridge.

“What exactly are you so happy about?' Harry asked her. 'Oh Harry, don't you see?' Hermione breathed. 'If she could have done one thing to make absolutely sure that every single person in this school will read your interview, it was banning it!”

Gillyweed and Golden Snitch

"I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses. . . I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death — if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach.”
