The Coolest Bedrooms on TV
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Jenna Hamilton's room on Awkward
If butterflies aren't your thing, whimsical fairy lights will also do the trick.
- 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!
- 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?
- Jessica Day's room on New Girl
Brick walls instantly add character to any room. Also: hello, Instagram-ready backdrop!
- 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.
- Peyton Sawyer's room on One Tree Hill
Art meets music meets feels in our favorite emo girl’s space.
- 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!

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
