Get the Look: Zooey Deschanel's Bedroom in 500 Days of Summer

After much anticipation, I finally saw 500 Days of Summer and loved it! Aside from the easy, romantic soundtrack, hip wardrobes, and counterintuitively hopeful plot, I fell for the movie's interiors, which are charming, inspiring, and easy to reproduce. In the film, Summer (Zooey Deschanel) is a recent transplant, and still has a few boxes sitting unpacked in her apartment. She also has plenty of interesting, vintage artwork in ornate gold frames, some well-traveled knickknacks, and as you might expect from any good indie flick, some cool posters. The most noticeable element of her apartment (a studio, I think) is the blue toile wallpaper you see upon entrance. French toile patterns date back to the 17th century, and they saw a rejuvenation in popularity about 10 years ago, when an antique or country look in interiors became popular.

You can find a similar blue toile paper by the Wallpaper Company at Home Depot. But, Thibaut Design is also known for making beautiful toiles.

Summer has strung Christmas tree lights on the frame of hers, giving it a romantic, ambient look when lit. Her nearly white bedding has a subtle pattern, giving it a well-washed, antique look. And, a patchwork throw pillow has nostalgic style. Here are a few products to help you get the look.
