    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. As everyone knows, in a truly perfect teen movie, all the real action takes place in the bedroom: the heart-to-heart calls to BFFs, the slumber parties, and in some cases, hatching the perfect plan to murder take down the school bully.

    As an ode to the teen dream, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite femme-centric rooms on film, spanning five decades of inspired home decor — and we're showing you how to snag these iconic looks for yourself. From the sun- and '70s- drenched spaces of the doomed Lisbon girls of The Virgin Suicides to the posh '90s boudoir of Cruel Intentions’ Kathryn Merteuil, this trip down memory lane should spark at least a shopping trip or two, and possibly reshuffle your Netflix queue as well.
