1. Arrietty’s Bedroom
The Secret World of Arriety (2010) is the animated adaptation of Mary Norton's book, The Borrowers. The book and the film are about the secret world of tiny people living in the walls and under the floorboards of human homes.
Arriety's bedroom make look like a mess at first glance but it is a comfortable place full of borrowed human items
2. Zeniba’s Kitchen
Would you forget your name and willingly live in the spirit world of Spirited Away? If you befriend the seemingly terrifying Zeniba, you just might.
Zeniba's spacious and well-loved kitchen would look like this in real life. It looks wonderful and old timey, does it not?
3. Howl’s Bathroom
My personal favorite out of all of Miyazaki's creations is Howl's Moving Castle. The story is poignant, heartwarming, and visually captivating — take Howl's bathroom for example.
The haphazardly splashed paint in stark contrast with the copper fixtures and white porcelain tub makes for an imaginative and interesting bath time if replicated
4. Anna’s Bedroom
When Marnie Was There (2014) is a story about familial love and our self-worth in relation to knowing where we come from. It's about Anna and her discovery of her long-lost family which was prompted by a fateful meeting with a girl named Marnie.
Marnie's room looks like there's always lofi music playing in the background that brings comfort to a weary heart
5. The Cat Bureau
Can you talk to cats like Haru can? Are you willing to find a large white cat that will give you directions to the Cat Bureau to break off an unwanted engagement with the Prince of Cats?
If so, be ready to find a sunlit room that looks like the best place to lounge about and be merry
Our broths and bento meals may not always look like the delicious animated versions we see in movies but our rooms can certainly cop the looks from these Ghibli films. You can pick your favorite Studio Ghibli movie, find a theme that speaks to you, and weave it into the style and feel of your own home just like the designs above did — just be on the lookout for Totoro lurking about!
