The days when all it took to hang art was scotch tape are far behind us, but that doesn’t mean a look back every now and then isn’t a welcome wander down nostalgia lane. Here, we’ll explore some of our favorite 90s movie bedrooms, and the lessons they taught us from the big screen. 

First,

Bring It On

. The importance of slightly tilted posters cannot be underestimated. A centrally placed bed also has a stage-like quality, making impromptu solo dancing sessions far more fun.

Also from

Bring It On

, Cliff Pantone’s bedroom was one of our first peeks into the private world of the cool guy at school. You remember him, right? Apparently he’s super into obscure bands and profound artistic statements.

The Craft

You
know
you wanted a major floor pillow situation after you saw this film, don’t deny it. They provide a comfy landing pad for all secret witchy meetings, or just a good spot to watch TGIF.

Sister Act 2: Back In The Habit

Maria’s bedroom highlights the timeless cool of the wicker headboard. Staying true to 90s decor essentials, her frameless poster collection is impressive indeed.

American Pie

The (hopefully) last time we spotted plaid wallpaper in the wild. Pair that will dull furniture practically begging for a DIY or hack, and you’ve got the makings of a classic 90s dude bedroom. Incredibly attractive foreign exchange student not included.

Romeo & Juliet

Juliet’s breathtaking bedroom was the perfect example of more is more. Any girl who collected…well,
anything
could relate to Juliet’s organized clutter.

Dawson’s Creek

Okay, so it’s not a movie, but it’s too 90s-perfect not to include. Dawson’s room was so 90s it almost hurts. The quilt, the random dim lighting, the hyper-personalization of every square inch of wall space. The room, much like the series, is nothing short of classic.

10 Things I Hate About You

The Stratford sisters couldn’t have been more different, and for proof you need look no further than their rooms. Bianca’s sweet, floral, sentimental space lit the screen with stark contrast to Kat’s moody, cluttered zone. Flip back and forth between this slide and the one after it to see what we mean.

10 Things I Hate About You (continued)

Layered posters! Not an inch of paint showing! Those were truly the days. Kat’s room brings to life the feels of 90s alt-girls in one bedroom of organized chaos. Or maybe just chaos.

Honorable mention for the pink carpet, padded walls, and general malaise.
