Daily Express - - NEWS - By Eleanor Jones

AN EN­THU­SI­AST for the 19th cen­tury has spent £ 10,000 re­turn­ing his home to the style it en­joyed when Queen Vic­to­ria reigned.

And his years of hard work have paid off – with a hint of a part in the next Harry Pot­ter film.

His 19th cen­tury sit­ting room re­pro­duc­tion com­pany which recre­ated the pat­tern.

Set dec­o­ra­tor Anna Pin­nock latched on to the de­sign for use in the new movie Fan­tas­tic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
