Transform your bedroom into Bella’s!

Can you believe it, 28 days until The Twilight Saga: New Moon premiere?  I can hardly believe it myself!

What a better way to proceed with the countdown then by recreating Bella’s bedroom in your own!

We found this adorable article about how you can pull off your own transformation!



Here’s what you’ll need to get the basic look down:

I’m impatiently waiting for The Twilight Saga: New Moon to hit theaters next month, and have done everything I can to prepare. I’ve read all the books, started following Summit (the studio behind the movie) on Twitter (@Twilight), and even talked to the cast (check out our New Moon package in this month’s issue, and here) about life on set, what they keep in their trailers, what they do in their spare time, and everything that came to mind, and now I’m just getting restless and waiting.


All of that anticipating leaves me time to do things like look up all the furniture used to decorate Bella’s room in the movie. And do you know what I learned? Target makes a comforter set that looks exactly like Bella’s, except it sold out. And now people are bidding up to $600 for it on eBay! Crazy, I know. That’s why we decided to help you guys out and show you how to recreate Bella’s room without blowing through all of your savings and then trying to sell your soul to get your hands on the rest of the cash you’d need (Hey, if Edward has taught us anything, it’s that a soul is valuable!).

Here’s what you’ll need to get the basic look down:

Pine Furniture
Bella’s room has a rustic, vintage-y vibe to it, with unfinished-looking wood all over the place. This desk and dresser from Ikea are pretty close to what you see in the movie, and they definitely have that woodsy feel to them. 



Pictures and Memories

You see photographs, postcards (probably from her mom and Phil) and notes all over Bella’s room, on giant cork boards that play off all the pine furniture perfectly. Try these boards from Umbra, at the The Container Store, and then cover them with your own memories (including your movie tickets from Twilight, and soon, New Moon, of course!). That way you can make sure your Twilight-inspired room still feels like your own space!

Purple Bedding
Go for lavender sheets and a plum, printed comforter for a look that’s similar to what you see in the movie. This comforter from Bliss Living is definitely a close match, and has the romantic feeling that you want when you’re cuddled up, dreaming about your vampire boyfriend. If you’re a stickler, and want a closer match, go for a comforter set from Target, in the same print as Bella’s, but in a charcoal color, at an affordable $70 for a full. It’s still dark and dreamy, and you can get the colors right everywhere else in the room.

Turquoise Walls
This color is not what I would have expected Charlie to have in his house, but maybe it was his way of prepping the room for Bella’s arrival. Regardless, this color from Benjamin Moore (2052-40 Blue Spa) is a perfect match. Paint all four walls and your room will instantly feel different!



Gauzy Curtains
Bella has a lot of different layers of stuff on her windows (bamboo curtains, long sheer panels and a floaty valance). Save a little cash—and effort—and get the same effect by mixing these Twisted Curtains from PBTeen in white and turquoise (to match your walls), starting at $16 per panel. I always thought it would have been hard for Edward to climb through the window silently at night, through all those layers of fabric.



Soft Light
Get battery-powered paper lanterns from Pier 1 Imports to diffuse the light in your room, for a wistful, dreamy feel, and at an awesome, budget-friendly price (3 for $12!). Also add some Christmas lights, draped from one corner of the room to your window, since you see twinkling lights in some of the scenes in the movie. 



The Finishing Touch
The last thing you need? This life-sized cutout of Edward (or Jacob, if you prefer—or both, if you can’t pick between the two!) is the ideal substitute, in case you don’t have your own impossibly beautiful vampire to watch you sleep at night. It’s only $33 at Nordstrom!
