We all know the importance of sleep, especially on days when we don’t get enough of it. On average, we spend 26 years of our total lifespan asleep, which amounts to a lot of time in our bedrooms–and that doesn’t even include the number of hours spent lying around and scrolling through our ex’s pics on Instagram.

Our bedrooms say a lot about who we are and how we find comfort. That’s what makes the bedrooms of our favorite TV show characters so memorable, from Blanche Devereaux’s bold tropical print wallpaper on “The Golden Girls” to Carrie Bradshaw’s signature New York City setup. And when it comes to their sleep quality, we can’t help but wonder: How would these iconic characters sleep in real life?

Lucky for us, this question was also enough to keep the sleep experts at People Who Sleep up at night, so much that they decided to recreate the famous bedrooms of some of TV’s most popular characters: Cersei from “Game of Thrones,” Rachel from Friends, Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex and the City,” Blanche Devereaux from “The Golden Girls,” and even Bart Simpson and Fred and Wilma Flinstone, and made them all more conducive to good sleep.

Rachel Green (“Friends”)

In Rachel’s room, the team toned down the bright pink walls and removed a lot of the clutter and artwork from the walls to minimize distractions, promising a better night’s rest with more streamlined decor.

Carrie Bradshaw (“Sex and the City”)

Carrie Bradshaw (“Sex and the City”)They did the same for Carrie and the bookshelf and framed art from the wall above her bed, while adding room-darkening curtains to block the light out. It looks like she wouldn’t need her sleep mask for a good night’s reset with this window treatment.

Blanche Devereaux (“The Golden Girls”)

It just wouldn’t be Blanche’s bedroom without the bold carpet and wallpaper choice. The sleep experts chose a more subtle version of the tropical print wallpaper and removed the extra furniture, making the bed a true centerpiece. We think Blanche would approve.

These reimagined bedrooms of our favorite TV characters is definitely inspiring us to make a few decorative swaps for better sleep. For more ideas, you can check out the rest of the bedroom makeovers here.
