8 Wallpaper Ideas to Recreate Famous Bedrooms

If you’re in need of some wallpaper inspiration then you’ve come to the right place. Home decor and style are often as iconic as the people living in the spaces. Maybe you’re a film lover and would like to recreate a room from your favourite film or tv show? Or, perhaps, you’d like to recreate a room from another era. Let’s take a look at some of the most famous bedrooms throughout tv and cinematic history to inspire your new home wallpaper. 

1. Frenchy’s Bedroom, Grease 

The 1978 classic film Grease is still a massive hit today and the retro style of the film is enough to inspire any Grease fan. As we all know, fashion always repeats itself which means the retro wallpaper in Frenchy’s bedroom will always be in. Why not return to the 70s with bold geometric designs, bright colours, and contrasting designs? If pink isn’t your favourite, you can choose from an array of designs and patterns, from Moroccan prints all the way to a unique Barbershop style. 

Achieve this style with:

  • Pink, patterned wallpaper 
  • Pink, silk bed sheets 
  • Frilly curtains 
  • Posters for the wall

2. Art Deco Inspired Bedroom, The Great Gatsby 

The film version of the literary classic celebrates the opulence and extravagance of Art Deco. The glitz has inspired us to take a further look at the unique 20th century design movement. Our modern range of art deco wallpaper portrays precise and bold geometric shapes inspired by the 1920s and 1930s era. Combined with strong colours, this range is sure to bring a unique and statement feel to your bedroom, transporting you instantly back to the Roaring Twenties and the grandeur and indulgence of the time.

3. Harry Potter’s Cupboard 

Perhaps one of the most famous bedrooms in cinematic history, Harry Potter’s cupboard (otherwise known as The Cupboard Under the Stairs) is well known amongst all Harry Potter fans. If you don’t want to recreate a dusty cupboard full of cobwebs, perhaps you can turn the space under the stairs into a more exciting Harry Potter themed room, a secret retreat for reading or relaxing.

Looking to keep up to date with the latest goings on in the wizarding community? Plaster your walls with Daily Prophet themed wallpaper to do just the job.

4. Blance Devereaux’s Extravagant Bedroom, Golden Girls

Let’s take a look at one of our favourite shows and biggest style icons of the 80s. Blanche Devereaux’s tropical bedroom might look a little over the top and wild, but the 80’s trend is back. Luckily, the banana leaves can be brought into the 21st century with the right styling.

Looking to liven up your living space? A feature wall with Jungle and tropical wallpaper is perfect to add a good amount of wildness to your room. Or, if you want to go big and completely transport yourself to the tropical landscape of Hawaii, you can add this wallpaper to every wall in your room. There’s nothing wrong with being bold now and then.

6. Neoclassical Inspired Bedroom in 2001: A Space Odyssey

Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey doesn’t seem like a film where we’d get decor inspiration from. But at a closer look, this film is packed full of beautiful set designs that will surely inspire us. From the futuristic design of the iconic red chairs and low, white coffee table to the neoclassical style of the bedroom at the end of the universe. The white walls, ornate gold armchairs, and neoclassical paintings are still in today. 

Create a Neoclassical bedroom with: 

  • White walls 
  • Extravagant paintings 
  • Ornate armchairs and drawers 

7. The Impressive Interior of Versailles 

The interior of Versailles is all about maximalism. So, if you’re looking to go very, very bold, this style is up your street. With chandeliers and ornate paintings, the whole decor of Versailles makes it extravagant, but the real grandeur comes from the upholstered wall tradition. This extravagant style is nothing new and it involves plastering your walls in fabric that matches other pieces of decor in your room. The busy patterns and overflowing fabric make for an impressive master bedroom.

9. Van Gogh’s Bedroom in The Yellow House 

Van Gogh’s bedroom in the Yellow House is one of the most famous bedrooms in art history. Van Gogh was renting the house, unfurnished, in Arles in 1888 and initially painted the picture to give his brother, Theo, an idea of his home life. The painting is famously known for the bare interior and its clash of colours: the blood red bed throw, yellow bed post, and lilac walls. The bedroom was clearly a place of creativity and imagination for Van Gogh, as he made three versions of his painting. Maybe you’re an artist looking to get your creative juices flowing? Try a clash of colours in your bedroom for a Van Gogh effect.
