“TSITP” Fans: Turn Your Dorm Room into Cousins Beach for Under $200
Prime Video’s The Summer I Turned Pretty took over social media when it premiered in 2022, and now that the series is back for Season 2, it’s putting fans in a chokehold all over again. The series’ likable — if flawed — characters and coming-of-age plot are sweet enough to win over pretty much any YA fan. (Case in point: I’m already planning on buying a beach house where I’ll spend every summer with my best friends.)
Based on a novel series of the same name by romance author Jenny Han, TSITP takes place during the summertime in the fictional East Coast town of Cousins Beach. The show didn’t just captivate viewers for its relatable storylines and complicated love triangle (Team Conrad, by the way), though — it also has a desirable beach aesthetic and summer vibe. Belly, Conrad, Jeremiah, and the rest of the Cousins crew’s summer vacation shenanigans are set against a picturesque backdrop that feels like a timely reflection of the recent coastal cowgirl and coastal grandmother trends that have taken over TikTok in recent months.
With two seasons now out and a third in the works (there are three novels in Han’s series, after all), the show has quickly become a summertime staple. However, if you want to feel like you’re on vacay in Cousins Beach year-round, you can! Here’s how to bring The Summer I Turned Pretty vibes to your dorm room with affordable decor products that’ll cost you under $200 total.
