    Is there anything more nostalgic than the thought of your teenage bedroom? Holding a special place in our hearts (and parent’s houses), this was the place where we whiled away the hours until we were old enough to leave the nest. More than just a space, our room didn't just define our aesthetic. It defined us.

    Nowhere is this sentiment more clear than in the private pads of some of our favorite teen queens from the silver screen.
