Where Were You in 2002?
Even emo kids grow up.
Sing it back: before emo kids had kids of their own, they had their bedrooms—strongholds of teenaged style that reflect personal tastes and musical preferences.
We know Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus can’t be the only one out there who’s channeled the style of their youth into their grown-up lives.
Did you cover every inch of your bedroom walls with band photos, album art, black lace, and nautical stars? We want to see!
Share with us the quiet things that no one ever knows: pictures of your teenaged bedrooms vs. how you style your home now. Use Twitter or Instagram to post your pictures with the hashtag #HGtbt and we’ll share our favorites soon!
Much like the music venues where your favorite emo band might have played, this space is designed to look industrial, with exposed ductwork, a modern light fixture and spiral staircase adding to the urban feel.
Cathedral-high ceilings make this dark kitchen feel airy and open. Exposed brick, antler adorned walls and cool graphic patterns on the floor and backsplash are zippy additions that also add depth.
Emo Gallery Wall
Contrasting dark walls and white wainscoting set the tone in this contemporary dining room. Overhead a multibulb light fixture warmly illuminates the space, while a gallery wall of framed sepia-toned photos adds an emotional touch.
A major upgrade to the lowlit basement you may have learned the chords to your favorite Blink-182 song in, this space features a large couch with colorful pillows and blankets separating the game room and bar from the living room area in this finished basement. Pressboard and tin construct a fun and rugged playhouse for the kids in the corner.
Keep the Dream Alive
In this writing room, designers blended vintage items, such as the bookcase and end tables, with newer, more modern furniture to give the space a comfortable, inviting feeling perfect for letting inspiration flow. On the wall, several concert posters and an autographed guitar hang prominently.
