I’m a sucker for a good teen rom-com. Netflix knows this to be true and thus, my “Recommended For You” section is full of them. Sure, the drama these high schoolers find themselves in is often far-fetched, and many of the actors themselves look to be approaching their late 20s instead of on the cusp of turning 18—but there’s something to be said for the nuances of these clichéd storylines and upbeat pop soundtracks that I can’t help but love. And though these onscreen characters usually don’t have their lives together, I’ve noticed that their rooms look immaculate by comparison.
Peek around the bedrooms of some of your favorite teenage heroines and you’ll find enviable bedspreads, perfect lighting arrangements, and dreamy wallpapers that are definitely more chic and elegant than anything my friends or I had at that age. Granted, this is all thanks to a little thing called Hollywood magic, but nonetheless, I too would rather dance in my pajamas and contemplate life’s decisions against the backdrop of an expertly designed color scheme. So we’re here to help you cook up a little magic of your own. If you’ve ever wanted to decorate your space in homage to your favorite onscreen characters like Lara Jean from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Noah from The Kissing Booth, or Jodi in Tall Girl, we’ve selected wallpapers, furniture, and decor items to help make your space feel like you’ve just walked onto a movie set. And the best part? You don’t have to be a teen (or navigating an accidental love triangle) to enjoy these selections.
Lara Jean’s bedroom in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
Our romantically challenged heroine, Lara Jean, finds herself torn between the affections of multiple boys in this charming trilogy about high school romance, but for me, it was her bedroom that stole my heart. LJ’s romantic color palette of bright teal, rich canary yellow, and rosy shades of pink is the perfect way to create a sophisticated space that doesn’t feel stodgy. Add some antique-looking furniture and you’ve got a swoon-worthy bedroom anyone would fall in love with.
Luckily, it seems Target is as obsessed with this bedroom as we are, because this botanical wallpaper inspired by the movie is worthy of its own love letter. Make like Lara Jean and just adorn one wall with it for a pop of color, or peel-and-stick it to all four.
You might enjoy indulging in your fave romance novels a little more from this Lara Jean–approved macrame hanging chair with a sweet dream-catcher motif. Take a cue from the book and tuck it into a cozy corner.
String some fairy lights through the headboard on this antique-looking bed frame to get the full LJ effect.
Here’s a lamp that’s ready for its close-up. Etsy has plenty of vintage and vintage-inspired fringe lamps that mirror the look and feel of Lara Jean’s bedside fixture to a T.
