Screen Style: Get the Look of Emma Stone's La La Land Bedroom

A love letter to Hollywood set to music, it's easy to see why La La Land has earned a record-breaking 14 Oscar nominations. Once you look past Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's on-screen romance, you'll realize the real stars of this film are its sets. Bursting with color, pattern, and print, each scene is as visually intriguing as the last.

When creating the bedroom for Mia, an aspiring actress played by Stone, production designer David Wasco and set decorator Sandy Reynolds-Wasco (who together are nominated for Best Production Design) relied on a palette of bright colors and references to the glamour of Old Hollywood, to create a room that reflected the character.

Here's how to get the look in your own home:

Vintage movie posters

From Ingrid Bergman to Black Cat, Mia's décor pays homage to Hollywood's Golden Age with her collection of vintage posters. Splurge on a 27- x 41-inch linen-backed poster for Mildred Pierce, starring Joan Crawford, from 1945 for $2,300. Or save your pennies for movie tickets with a 24 x 36-inch poster for Alfred Hitchcock's classic Rear Window for $6.97.

Floral wallpaper

Mia's floral wallpaper serves as a minimal, but colorful backdrop for her collection of posters. Its light blue hue and subtle floral print add a delicate detail. A similar print at Steve's Wallpaper called Capri Aqua Floral Scroll runs $56.70 for a double roll. For a less permanent option, you can find removable custom stick-on wallpaper in a variety of prints on Etsy. This blush-colored floral motif starts at $25 a roll.

An endless supply of throw pillows

When Mia sinks into her bed to fantasize about her future on the silver screen, she appears to float on a layer of effortlessly arranged red and pink pillows, a stark contrast to her blue and cream bedspread. Stock up on different colors shapes and sizes like this 11.15" x 18.15" decorative pillow from Target's Bali throw pillow collection on sale for $25.16 or pop a pillow you already own into this hot pink and gold cover on Etsy that starts at $35.

A shabby chic dresser

It's unclear if Mia's rustic looking dresser is a purposeful design choice or what she can afford while working at a coffee shop as she waits to book her next acting gig. The Bramble Company's Hayward 3-drawer white mahogany dresser has a very similar look but could be out of Mia's price range at $1,250.

A circular mirror

A round, wall-mounted mirror means Mia's ready for her close-up long before she ever sets foot in front of a casting director. This minimalist-inspired 28" mirror with brass trim retails for $49.99 at Target, while this smaller, 26" plastic and glass version available at Bed Bath and Beyond comes with a rustic rope to hang on a wall for $69.99.
