Marilyn Monroe Hollywood Glam Bedroom Ideas

Updated on March 19, 2015

Marilyn Monroe is one of the most famous Hollywood icons of the twentieth century. There is no guessing why this gorgeous bombshell was envied and desired by many. She was a very talented singer, actress and model. A Marilyn Monroe Bedroom Theme can create a sexy Hollywood glamour bedroom. Below you will find some decor, accessories and furniture that features or remind us of the legendary Hollywood star, enjoy!

Mirrored Furniture

Marilyn Monroe was one of Hollywood's greatest movie stars. And we all know that Hollywood stars always have a mirror or two in their dressing rooms. Well at least that's what I have always seen on TV. That is why mirrored furniture would be great to have in any Hollywood Bedroom.

I love how mirrored furniture have a glamorous (aka expensive) look to them. Mirrors also reflect light. "Stars can never have enough light!"

This 6-piece Duvet Cover Set definitely screams Hollywood. Notice the numbered film strips in the back. Marilyn looks as though she is ready for her close up. Beautiful and seductive as always. The gray gives the bedding set a classic vintage feel. I love how they also have her face on the pillowcases and shams.

Marilyn Monroe stared in MANY films. "Some like it hot" and "Gentle men prefer blondes" are two of my favorites. Which was your favorite? Please vote below.

Hollywood Cameras

A Hollywood camera makes a great decor option. Especially one that has a vintage feel to it. Same goes with a microphone.

Although this isn't really a camera, it makes for a pretty cool desk lamp.

 

Red Lips

Marilyn Monroe is known for her gorgeous red lips. Either one of these items would bring a fun and sexy feel to the bedroom.

You don't necessarily need a phone line to own this telephone. It can be used solely for decorative purposes.

I really love this bean bag. It is big enough to seat two people .

 

Posters

A large image of Marilyn Monroe is a must in the bedroom. Especially one hung above the bed frame or on a eye-catching accent wall. Make the poster stand out by framing it. Preferably a stainless steel or silver poster frame.

White Bedding

"The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream." ~ MM

Marilyn Monroe has been pictured on many white bedding sets. There's just something about an all white bedding set that gives the bedroom a classy heavenly feel.

Now don't go running to empty your bank account! No need for real diamonds, really. Be creative and look for items that remind you of diamonds instead. Crystal chandeliers, like this one, look like diamonds to me. Crystal curtains and door knobs are other great choices.

 

Marilyn Monroe Blankets

Marilyn Monroe bedding sets can be pretty hard to find. That's when these blankets can really come in handy. The blankets I have listed are marked for a Queen size bed. Keep in mind that these blankets may not hang as low as a regular size comforter, duvet cover, etc. I personally would feel comfortable using a queen size blanket on a full size and maybe a twin size bed (depending on the design) because I like hiding my top mattress. I guess it all depends on how low you would like your blanket to hang. Use the dimensions for guidance. If the blanket does not list the dimensions, I would contact the seller and maybe they can help determine the size of the blanket.

Cushion Covers

If you have not found a nice bedding set of Ms.Marilyn Monroe, no worries! Cover your throw pillows with cushion covers like these and place them on a solid colored bedding set. I would finish the look with a ruffled bed skirt.

I would also dare to place these throw pillows on a black and white damask bedding set, for more of an elegant look.

Marilyn Monroe Sexy Bedding

This duvet set comes with a duvet cover, flat sheet and pillowcases. Unfortunately, it does not come with a fitted sheet. But that's not a problem. You can always purchased a sheet set that goes with the rest of the decor. I would consider the color red because it would make the lips on the duvet cover stand out even more.

Wall Decals

I love the meanings behind quotes. They can be very powerful. Quotes are also a great way to express how you feel. I have a wall decal in my living room that says, "Happiness is being home again". That is how I feel whenever I come home, especially from a hard day at work. The quote is surrounded by tree branches and birds.

      I absolutely adore Marilyn Monroe and thought she was more gorgeous as a young brunette instead of a blonde.

      It might sound contradictory but she had a certain softness mixed with a ruthlessness to succeed, AND SHE WAS PRETTY.

      I've never been a huge Marilyn fan, but she was really good in her earlier roles, like in "All About Eve" where she played a starlet. Your bedroom theme is very fun!

      Who wouldn't want Marilyn Monroe in their bedroom! ha! That girl that got kicked off American Idol last night reminded me a lot of her. She had a "somber" look...a lot going on in her head. Blessed!
