If you love Wonder Woman as much as we do, then don’t hide it! Check out these powerful and pretty epic Wonder Woman room ideas.
Today, we've got a special treat - another guest post from Emma Joyce! This is the second guest post that we've had from Emma, and I think y'all are really going to like it. That's enough from me, let me turn things over to Emma. Enjoy!
In the constantly growing world of superhero movies, it’s hard to stay unique and important. Yes, Batman and Superman have been doing it for a few decades now, as well as Iron Man, the first superhero Marvel focused on properly, but what about the others?
With at least three movies coming out year after year, it seems that our favorite vigilantes just come and go without making much of an impact– who can remember last year’s Doctor Strange or Suicide Squad when we can focus on this year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and Justice League? The heroes are sometimes the same, but some just aren’t unique enough to capture out attention for more than ninety minutes. However, this year’s Wonder Woman is something else – it’s an action-packed flick that combines a great origin story, an amazing cast, and a director who knows what she’s doing. That’s why it’s so popular right now and will make a lasting impact. If you’ve ever wanted to live like Diana Prince, here’s a quick guide to decorating your home to mimic her style, philosophy, and look.
First, you need to think about the items that constitute a unique Wonder Woman style – what kind of furniture, materials, patterns, and textures would you use if you were to become a modern Princess of Themyscira? Think of the message your space should convey: it should be bold, fearless, strong and powerful, yet highly feminine and exotic at the same time. This means simple and everyday materials and combinations are out of the question. Leather, silk, and natural materials are the only choices you should make in a Wonder Woman bedroom.
Moreover, when it comes to colors, focus on the iconic Wonder Woman costume and try to combine red, white, and blue – after all, this is a popular color combo and people have been using it for quite some time – with golden and crimson tones. In the end, try to keep everything slick and modern because that’s the way your room needs to be in order for you to fully enjoy the power that comes with the Wonder Woman iconography. Also, Wonder Woman bedding would be pretty classic and fun!

Just because the ceiling is generally not everyone’s favorite decorating area and not that many people pay attention to it doesn’t mean that it has no value. Utilizing your ceiling to show your Wonder Woman fandom is the best and most effective way to show the world who you are, what you stand for and, ultimately, why this image is so important to you. Of course, being such a specific space, the ceiling is never easy to decorate and you’ll need to think long and hard about how to do it in the best possible way.
So, for ceilings I’ve got two amazing ideas for you to try – painting a mural depicting Diana Prince or, alternatively, opting for a more toned-down perspective by playing with colors. The mural is the most obvious way to decorate your ceiling, but you can’t do it without a muralist, a painter, or a graffiti artist, and, depending on the size, it can be quite costly. The other idea means you’ll be recreating the atmosphere of Wonder Woman by painting your ceiling in colors such as crimson or navy blue. As an alternative, you could recreate the view of the sky above Themyscira by going with light blue paint and adding a few clouds here and there. That would make the perfect Wonder Woman decor.

Now that you’ve taken care of your ceiling, it’s time to move to a more pressing issue for your Wonder Woman room decor – the walls. Figuring out what to do with them is probably going to be the hardest part of the whole decorating process, but once you find a way to treat them in the true Wonder Woman style, your job will be almost done. Since the walls are the most noticeable part of every room, they’ll make a huge impression on your visitors, so you’d better make sure they’re perfect. Luckily, there are lots of ideas you can try. Here are some of the most popular ones:
- Solid color – if you’re traditional and wish to show your love for Wonder Woman without going too crazy, this is the best way to go. Just pick one of the colors featured on her amazing suit – you can choose between the comic book versions or the one portrayed by Gal Gadot – and paint your wall in it. If you wish to add a dose of excitement, blend two colors together – you can even do it on your own as long as you know what you’re doing.
- Mural – again, murals are a great way to show the world how much in love with this character you are and also one of the best ways to make sure your rooms aren’t boring. However, you need to keep a few things in mind, starting with the most obvious: if you’ve opted for a mural on the ceiling, don’t do it again on the walls because it’s just going to be too much. Also, make sure you’ve found an experienced muralist who’s able to give you what you need and doesn’t mess up your walls. Finally, be prepared to pay a little extra for this option because it may be expensive.
- Wallpaper – although wallpapers aren’t as fashionable as they used to be back in the days when Lynda Carter portrayed Wonder Woman, they might be an idea worth considering. If you find a comic book inspired wallpaper featuring this character, you’re good to go! You can hang it on your own and turn your room into an exciting and inspiring space. The same goes for sticker decals that can recreate Wonder Woman’s iconic logo and easily blend in with the rest of the room design and decorations. I mean, how cool would a Wonder Woman wall decal be in your home?
If you want every element of your Wonder Woman room to be completely in sync, you need to pay attention to the floor as well. Finding a way to make it extra special and stand out is going to elevate the effect your room leaves on all your visitors, and also make you happy every time you see it. The best way to accomplish this is by recreating some of the spaces seen in Wonder Woman because sometimes it’s easier to feel inspired by something you see on the big screen than by images in the comic books.
One of the most exciting places is the island of Themyscira, where Wonder Woman grows up and lives until she follows Steve Trevor to Europe. Fortunately, the floor designs found in the homes of the Amazons can easily be recreated in your own home as well.
Mosaic tiles with ancient Greek motifs may seem like a pricey solution at first, but they are a feature that will separate your home from the rest in your neighborhood and instantly turn it into a stylish, elegant, and inviting place. When picking the tiles be sure to go with bright options instead of darker ones as these won’t give your room the contrast it needs. Matching this bright floor with the dark-colored walls you’ve already painted is going to create a wonderful contrast and truly brighten up the room. You can also add inspiring round rugs that mimic Gadot’s bullet-deflecting shield she uses after arriving to the Western Front.
A large selection of Wonder Woman decorations has been available since the 1970s TV show and finding items that will suit you is more than easy. From table lamps, clocks, coffee mugs, and plates to posters, collectibles, and memorabilia – your room can be accessorized with as many Wonder Woman items as you want! And if you’re extra handy, you can even make some of them (custom-made Wonder Woman heels, blankets, pins and T-shirts, for instance) completely on your own. It’s important not to overdo it as too many decorations create a mess.
Take your room’s purpose into consideration – living rooms can accommodate a large Diana Prince reading lamp much better than a small bedroom, while the latter is the perfect place to try out your new Wonder Woman bed linens and throw pillows. Remember: as long as you do it with style and know when to stop, you can do whatever you want!
After adding all of these elements to your rooms, it’s important to maintain the image in the years to come. This means updating it every once in a while, adding new decor and waiting for new merchandise that’s sure to come not just after this year’s Justice League, but also following the planned Wonder Woman sequel!
That’s it, guys! Now you have some great ideas on how to create your own Wonder Woman inspired space. Which idea is your favorite? Do you have one I didn’t mention? Let me know in the comments below! Share this post with all of your Wonder Woman loving family and friends. Ta for now!
