Rooms Inspired By 5 Favorite Romantic Movies

‘Tis the season for over-the-top romantic movies. And hallelujah! There is nothing more satisfying than sitting on the couch with the one you love and a fresh bowl of popcorn. Except maybe for the joy of swooning over the set design and pausing the movie to say to yourself, “OH MY GOSH WHERE CAN I FIND THAT SOFA!?”

After the jump, my favorite rooms inspired by my favorite romantic movies, and sources for those key pieces to recreate those rooms in your own home! This was so fun to put together. I hope you enjoy it!
