Is your teen more Gossip Girl or Glee? The Breakfast Club or Twilight? The shows or movies they love inspired these fun bedroom designs!

The Inspiration: Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) Glee
For the teen whose talent is as big as her rock 'n' roll dreams, like Glee's Rachel Berry, a bedroom reflecting visions of stardom fits the bill. Whether it's a room designed to look like the interior of a luxe tour bus or an over-the-top theatrical Lady Gaga-like dressing room, the design is all in the details.
Look for lighted mirrors or small light-up signs as accents. Costumes—feather boas, bodices, capes, kimonos—can be displayed on walls or draped over a bed. Paint walls a color, but use silvery wallpaper on the ceiling to reflect light, says designer Jennifer Allen Frank: "I figure they're always lying in bed and talking on the phone, so they might as well as stare up at something interesting."
