When it comes to bedroom design, unexpected inspiration can be derived via the small screen, especially if you identify with a strong main character and yearn to recreate a bit of their home style in your own space.

A recent survey by finance house Uswitch.com/mortgages combed through Pinterest to find the ten most popular mock bedrooms, rating them by the number of Pins each earned.

It’s safe to say that the girls are definitely on top, with each of the heavy hitters being a dynamic female character that has risen to prominence over the past few decades.

To make your screen’s dream vibe achievable, Uswitch hired an interior designer to theoretically “shop around” and estimate the approximate cost of each look. If you’re a conspiratorial Carrie or aspiring Bella, Uswitch’s results provide some insight into how much you should be spending to bring your iconic character home. Decoratively speaking…

2. Carly Shay-iCarly – $5,351
3. Hannah Montana – Hannah Montana – $4,362
4. Kat Stratford – 10 Things I Hate About You – $3,654

Gossip Girl-style, Blair Waldorf’s (played by Leighton Meester) penthouse bedroom in New York turned out to be the most expensive, costing $6,780 to recreate.

Balancing old-school sophistication and refined comfort, Blair’s Nest can be recreated with a coat of Benjamin Moore Bachelor Blue, gray tactile rug, and stately mahogany furniture. Hey, with a little planning, the look of Upper East Side royalty could be yours…

In second place is the brightly colored bedroom of Carly Shay from Nickelodeon’s iconic show iCarly. With an estimated recreational cost of $5,351, this sleep zone encompasses the fun factor, with fun furnishings and bright colors that promise to deliver the perfect teenage dream.

Disney’s Hannah Montana, played by Miley Cyrus, follows in third place. Proving that Hannah’s style is just as enduring as Miley’s (has it really been 11 years since the last ep’?), the singer’s bedroom vibe could be yours for $4,359.

Kat Stratford’s bold gothic bedroom from the ’90s romantic comedy ’10 Things I Hate About You’ ranks number four, a true design classic, as far as we’re concerned, given that we had all the two of the dramatic poster walls in our bedrooms while navigating our teenage years. Slated to cost around $3,654 to recreate, mahogany furniture and a collection of assorted rock band posters will help put your grunge on display.

In fifth place, costing around $2,357 to recreate, the iconic apartment bedroom is a scene stealer. Bring it to life with a box of Benjamin Moore Bunny Nose Pink, an antique whitewash bed frame, and a few matching bedside tables.

Simple, huh? Add some extra TV comfort with a plush cream armchair and floral bedding, and you’ll be good to go. Who knows: you might even want to grab the vacuum cleaner to act out Monica’s cleaning obsession.

Recreating Carrie Bradshaw’s bedroom from “Sex and The City” would cost $1,298, a bargain considering a pair of Carrie’s beloved crystal-strapped Manolo Blahnik sandals would cost $1,800!

The simple piece can be achieved with a coat of Benjamin Moore Sage Wisdom and mixing mismatched furniture and wall shelves. It’s worth noting, though, that Mrs. B practically invented the walk-in closet, so you might need to spend a few extra bucks on clothing storage to properly capture the Bradshaw aesthetic.

Male representative on the Uswitch roster distinctly noticeable by his absence, we thought (for the sake of balance) we should shout out the rooms of our favorite on-screen guys. So, without further ado: Ferris Bueller (assailed with Union Jacks and Cabaret Voltaire posters) Iron Man Tony Stark (all glass and curvaceous concrete) and Halsten (as evidenced by Netflix) a true mix of butch and female dog, covered with a ruby ​​red carpet, Warhol serigraphs and steel tube chairs.

But be warned: if you’re planning a sketchy homage to your favorite screen idol, make sure you’re fully committed: flipping the switch on a brand new bedroom, after all, will probably be a lot trickier than just switching. TV channel…
