Have you ever found yourself wishing you could live in Storybrooke or The Enchanted Forest with your favorite characters from ABC's Once Upon a Time? Well, fairy tales sometimes come true, but you can definitely bring OUAT style to your own home. Check out these beautiful spaces reminiscent of Snow, Regina, Hook and the new, fabulously dark Emma Swan, just in time for Sunday's season premiere.

Mary Margaret/Snow White

If Mary Margaret and David ever remodel their loft, I imagine the kitchen will look something like this trendy Jeff Pelletier design. And Belle would absolutely adore that library ladder.

A library ladder provides a fun and unique way to access high cabinets in this transitional kitchen. A white subway-tile backsplash brings a nice pattern to the solid finishes in the kitchen's design. Gray countertops complement the light gray walls.

Decked out with graceful lines and decorative art pieces, this loft living room is casual, authentic and altogether feminine. While offset furniture orients guests towards each other, the painted entertainment center is still eye-catching.

Regina/Evil Queen

Although Regina's Storybrooke bedroom doesn't actually look like this, I've always imagined her surrounded by black damask wallpaper and velvet curtains while she plots to take over the world.

Black Bedroom With Damask Wallpaper and Black Chandelier

Layers and patterns in black and white define this dark, sophisticated bedroom. Black walls expand the room, blurring the visual edges of the space. Damask-patterned wallpaper provides visual interest while a large gray headboard and bed helps to break up the all-black walls. Mirrored nightstands and a large, dramatic black chandelier add glamor to this luxurious space.

A no-holds-barred approach to decorating results in a whimsical undersea adventure in this media room and playspace.

Cora/Queen of Hearts

Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, as her wedding day to King Leopold approaches, Regina is confronted by a man of magic who promises to help her become independent and break free from her mother Cora's (Barbara Hershey) clutches, on "Once Upon a Time," SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

I was heartbroken when Graham died. So here's one for nostalgia's sake.This room is rustic and subdued like the handsome ex-sheriff and of course, a faux deer head commemorates his love of animals. See more of this NYC apartment >>

Killian/Captain Hook

Captain Hook (swoon) would feel right at home in this stylish, rustic bedroom. A glass orb chandelier, black wood accent wall and wood headboard with built-in nightstands look as if they were taken straight from the cabin of The Jolly Roger.

Stylish Master Bedroom Is Calm, Relaxed

Now that she's in The Enchanted Forest, the Dark Swan is going to need some new digs. I hope they look something like this super-chic gothic living room by designer, Linda McDougald.
