5 Unique Bedrooms You Never Knew You Wanted

Sweet dreams are made of these!


Our bedroom is like our personal empire. Whether you’re a morning person or a night owl, chances are, you spend a lot of time in your room. We won't be surprised if you also spent a good amount of your childhood (and adulthood!) dreaming about redecorating your space like your favorite fictional characters.

Aside from Hey! Arnold’s four-poster bed and Mia Thermopolis’ mini-tower, there are more imagined spaces that deserve credit. We’ve rounded up some of what we think are the best film and TV bedrooms and how you can style your own space to match it!

It may look like a typical 90s bedroom, but if you look closely, Clarissa in Clarissa Explains It All (1991-1994) has iconic Keith Harring posters displayed on her walls. If you want a similar look, you can install a couple of framed pop art pieces for an effortlessly cool vibe.

Lux’s bedroom in The Virgin Suicides (1999) is probably one of the daintiest and most feminine rooms on-screen. Capture the same feel by incorporating different shades of pink and floral prints through the drapes or bedding.

How about experimenting with Rose Quartz this year?

Reuben Tishkoff's room in Ocean's Thirteen (2007) looks super extravagant with a gold on gold palette. If you’re not feeling as bold as he is but you still want to add sparkle to your home, accessorizing with metallic pieces might do the trick.

Given the choice, we would all love to wake up in the Greek island of Skopelos. Get the look of Hotel Villa Donna in Mamma Mia (2008) by adding vintage furniture and décor in warmer tones of rust and orange. 

RL Tip: A visit to Urban Abode is in order—especially if you're looking for pieces that you can work with to achieve this look.

From stuffed animals to boyband posters, Bev’s bedroom in Riding In Cars With Boys (2011) is every teenage girl’s dream. If you want to achieve something like it without the risk of making the space too youthful, the use of pastel colors in blue, pink or mint green can help you get it.
