The Coolest Bedrooms on TV

Get room inspo from your favorite shows.
The CW

Thinking of redecorating your bedroom? Or are you in the middle of a room makeover? We totally get the combined stress and excitement over fixing up your sacred space. On one hand, there are so many options, but on the other, there are so. Many. Options! Just getting started can be a challenge, and once you finally do, it's not uncommon to spend hours pinning stuff on Pinterest and flipping through home magazines (yeah, we dig the tactile pinning too), before the actual shopping and redecorating begins.

You can get inspiration from everywhere, from your surroundings to your childhood obsessions to your favorite TV shows, especially if you can really relate to a specific character. Below are a few examples that may inspire you to give your room a makeover or simply add interesting new elements.  

  1. Blair Waldorf's room on Gossip Girl

From the satin sheets to the Marie Antoinette painting, this room is the epitome of luxury. Queen B deserves the best, of course.

  1. Chanel Oberlin's room on Scream Queens

From her two-storey closet alone, Chanel Oberlin could give our original Queen B a run for her money. We mean, a whole family could live in Chanel’s closet.

  1. Serena van der Woodsen's room on Gossip Girl

Now if you just want to spruce up a certain part of your bedroom, why not take your cue from S? We love the delicate butterflies above her bed in B’s place.

  1. Jenna Hamilton's room on Awkward

If butterflies aren't your thing, whimsical fairy lights will also do the trick.

  1. Carrie Bradshaw's room on The Carrie Diaries

Before she lived in a fabulous rent-controlled apartment in New York, Carrie spent her teenage years in a room that offered some serious girl-next-door realness. Look how cozy her study nook is!

  1. Aria Montgomery's room on Pretty Little Liars

Speaking of cozy, can’t you just picture yourself in Aria’s little nook, getting lost in a book or just staring out the window and marveling at the wonders of the world?

  1. Jessica Day's room on New Girl

Brick walls instantly add character to any room. Also: hello, Instagram-ready backdrop! 

  1. Clary Fray's room on Shadowhunters

Personalize your room with the most personal décor of all: your own art. It doesn’t cost much and it makes your space truly yours—it’s an all-around win-win situation.

  1. Peyton Sawyer's room on One Tree Hill

Art meets music meets feels in our favorite emo girl’s space.

  1. Summer Roberts' room on The O.C.

Haven't we all, at some point, dreamed of having a four-poster bed? We're forever in love with this whimsical piece, where Summer's beloved Princess Sparkle probably sleeps as well!

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
