See What the Modern Bedrooms Of Our Favorite Disney Villains Would Look Like
Years after a movie’s release, children (and let’s not lie: adults, too) will still mindlessly hum their favorite protagonist’s songs or dress up as them for Halloween. There’s even a sweeping trend looking at what real-life Disney princesses would look like, wear, or do for a living in the modern world.
But, what about those characters who aren’t the favorites? The Ursualas, the Jafars, the Maleficents? What would they look like in the modern world? What would they do? Wear? And more importantly- How would they decorate their homes?
That’s precisely what we wanted to know, so we set out to find out. We re-watched six of our favorite Disney movies (getting all of those songs stuck in our heads again) and scoured the screen for hints at these villain’s decorating style. Then, we took what we learned about these dark Disney characters and applied it to the aesthetics of 2019.
Here’s what we came up with.
Maleficent’s bedroom (Sleeping Beauty)
Located in the castle atop Forbidden Mountain, Maleficent’s bedroom is not shown in the Disney classic, Sleeping Beauty. But taking a look at her style and general “vibe” – the whole black horns, black and purple robe, golden staff, green skin thing – we had a lot to work with for this modernized, 2019 bedroom.
Since Maleficent herself has black horns, we thought a 2019 Maleficent would surely decorate her room with antlers. After all, she is a powerful, modern woman and would certainly be proud – not ashamed – of her appearance. Likewise, we’ve incorporated the green of her skin and the green of the castle seen in the original movie, in small elements like the plant and the glowing orb atop her staff.
The purple in this bedroom comes from the amazing purple lining in her cloak; the hints of gold from her staff; and of course, it wouldn’t be Maleficent’s room without her trusty raven, Diablo.
Cruella De Vil’s bedroom (101 Dalmatians)
We took our inspiration for this modern bedroom from the woman herself: Cruella De Vil. This bedroom has clean, sharp lines (have you seen those cheekbones?); black and white on the curtains, walls, furniture, and bedding (taken from her black and white hair, black dress, and white coat); and we have hints of red around the room, from the hints of red in her outfit – the gloves, the lining of her coat, her shoes.
We’ve even taken elements from Cruella’s bedroom in the original movie and updated them for 2019 – the red phone (now with more modern lines and buttons), the tufted headboard (now black and leather rather than pink), and the bedside tables (now sleek and simple rather than ornate.)
And don’t think PETA would stop Cruella from having fur in her room in 2019. We’ve included her famous white fur coat, as well as a dalmatian print rug and throw pillow.
