80’s punk rocker in front of his wall of graffiti. Notice his Minor Threat pillowcase… badass.
The teenage bedroom— a refuge away from fighting parents, chores, snarls from insecure jocks at school, the mediocre outside world, etc… While nobody understands you, at least you can bond with Queen, Sweet, and Blondie on your turntable. Or at least look at pictures of them on your wall. So kick off those Chuck Taylors and light up that really small joint you smoke by the window. It’s time to dive into glimpses of your past.

1940’s teens. Notice the ubiquitous pin-up board— a teenage bedroom staple even back then.
That David Bowie drawing on the floor made me giggle.
Shawn Cassidy was on the wall of most girls bedrooms in the 70’s.
1970’s teen with Holly Hobby dolls and Sean Cassidy poster.
Pretty pink princess guitar. -1970’s
Portrait of a Young Goth Hoarder.
Hockey super fan.

I want those wolf pillowcases.
90’s emo teen. Business in the front, party in the back.
The cover photo of her punk rock zine.
Beavis and Butthead was probably this kids favorite show.
The room is not complete until mood lighting has been established.
This girl definitely had Morrissey stickers all over her school binder.
AC/DC… check. Iron Maiden… check. Star Wars… check… Who the hell is You Me At Six?
I had that same Pistols poster on my wall. Siouxsie, X, The Cramps, punk records, turntable, etc… This room gets an 8 out of 10 rating. Lost points on poster coverage… Gaping wall space is a no no.
Had that Sid & Nancy poster as well. This guy is very neat for being a musician. Mom was proud.
Stoner for sure. Love all the weird masks hanging on the wall.
She definitely went to an art college and changed her name to “Luna.”
More Christmas lights…
My high school bedroom. (above and below)
Okay, Courtney Love wasn’t a teen but close to it.
