JK Rowling Shares Video Of Her 'Harry Potter' Themed Home - And Fans Think It Looks Just Like Hogwarts

Before this week, we could only imagine what JK Rowling's home library looked like.

Now, the Harry Potter author has treated fans to a sneak peek inside her house - and it's every bit as Hogwarts-themed as we had hoped for.

Taking to Twitter to show off her newly-organised library, the author, 54 said: "Rearranging books is a very soothing lockdown activity".

And the Edinburgh home definitely had Hogwarts vibes, with the colour co-ordinated books organised from floor to ceiling with beautiful Georgian style wood panelling.

Panning the camera around the room from one side of the shelf to the other, a brass reading lamp can also be seen as well as a snug sofa, decorated with green and yellow scatter cushions.

The words 'It is the mind that maketh good of ill, that maketh wretch or happy, rich or poor' can also be seen running across the top of the wall behind the built-in book shelves.

The quote is taken from a poem by Edmund Spencer called The Faerie Queene, which was considered to be his masterpiece work.

And fans were in awe of the enchanting room, with many in shock over the volume of hefty novels lining the shelves.

One fan even said a trip to Rowling's library would be their "biggest dream" while others were desperate to know which books were in the author's collection, including of course the Harry Potter series.

"To the people asking: yes, of course I've got Harry Potter books!", the author explained.

"These aren't my only bookshelves, they're simply the ones I decided to arrange by colour during tea breaks."

Others were convinced the room looked just like Hogwarts' magical library, with one tweeting: "Hogwarts library or any similarity is a mere coincidence?"

While another said: "I thought for a minute that books were going to be flying around like in the library at Hogwarts".

One even noted it also looked like the headmaster's office, asking: "Is this from Hogwarts library? Or Dumbledore's study?"

This has definitely given us serious book shelf inspo'. Now, if we could just get a virtual tour of the rest of the house, that would be great...
