Create a Dainty Look for Your Room Inspired by Pretty Little Liars

Spencer's room has always been a favorite

I've been watching Pretty Little Liars for years and aside from the mystery surrounding "A," I always look forward to seeing the rooms of the four female leads. I always thought that Aria's room is so cozy and perfect for a writer while Spencer's private space has a pretty contemporary French provincial style with pieces that evoke romance, without being too girly.

If you've been dreaming of having a room inspired by Spencer's bedroom, here are decorating ideas worth checking out:

Choose dainty details

Dress your bed (it doesn’t have to be a four-post bed) with linen in toile de jouy print, then add pillows that sport similar design. A vanity dresser in a classic silhouette also completes the setup.

Keep it organized

To keep it clutter-free, use glass jars to corral small beauty products and accessories. Repurpose these glass jars and make sure you clean it thoroughly before using. You can also bring out small ceramic bowls from the kitchen. 

Make it gender neutral

Keep this look from becoming overly sweet by going for subdued feminine colors like old rose and aegan blue. Pastel colors will make your room look too juvenile, unless of course that’s your intention.
