IS THERE ANYTHING MORE NOSTALGIC THAN THE THOUGHT OF YOUR TEENAGE BEDROOM? WE PRESERVE THIS MEMORY IN A SPECIAL PLACE, AND AS A SANCTUARY IN OUR PARENT’S HOUSES
This was the place where we whiled away the hours until we were old enough to leave the nest. Our bedroom was more than just a space, defining not only our aesthetic but our personality.
Do you remember the coolest pop culture bedrooms? We’ve found this amazing tumblr blog, teenagebedroomsonscreen.com held by editor and film writer Luke Goodsell since 2011. He’s collecting thousands of images from movies and tv series portraying the rooms of young idols from different decades, which he hopes to turn into an exhibition one day.
Goodsell within his research began to wonder “where this over decorative phenomena began? How it evolved? Which things had changed and which things endured over the history of teen movies?”.
What’s particularly special about teen rooms in real life, is that they’re “identity-forming”: sometimes that’s an entire world, so how it’s designed is an extension of his inhabitants personality. You can see it here, in the best-designed rooms in films, which capture the tension between coddled childhoods and newfound creative expression.
