In A Apartment Far Far Away....


It has been a long time since we have seen a movie generate some much hype and as we have seen in the past couple months with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film has not been released yet, and stores have already stocked their shelves with Star Wars merchandise. Whether you have a Jedi in training or just always secretly wished you had a Star Wars themed room in your apartment, check out these five simple renter-friendly decorating tips that are sure to put your design skills into hyperdrive!

Wall Art: You do not need to paint your apartment walls to create a Star Wars inspired room. You also do not need to spend a lot of money on frames or artwork. Hang up a old movie poster, use wall decals, or use other Star Wars inspired art prints. Remember to get creative in your decorating!

Floor Rugs: As a renter you have no control on the flooring in your apartment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t change the look and feel of your apartment to go with your Star Wars theme. Take your living room into another galaxy with a simple Star Wars inspired rug. Picking the right rug can make all the difference in your apartment. Go simple or extravagant as you’d like. Check out our Pinterest page for area rug ideas that really inspired us. 

Display Collections: If you collect Star Wars memorabilia then now is the perfect time to pull them out of storage. Display your collection as a group in your apartment on a shelf or end table. Remember to display fragile and small pieces in shadow boxes and place them up high to avoid damage. Every piece in a collection reveals something about the collector, and that alone will make for a great conversation piece. Displaying your memorabilia will add to your Star Wars themed room and make for some great, personal, apartment decor. 

DIY: Pinterest is pouring over with great ideas from the novice to the expert DIYer. Check out our Pinterest page for more Star Wars apartment decorating ideas and create something original to your themed apartment. 

Other Ideas: With Star Wars:The Force Awakens due out at Christmas, Star Wars merchandise is endless right now. Capitalize on that and create your perfect inspired apartment! It can be as subtle as tossing a couple Star Wars themed accent pillow on your sofa or a throw blanket over the foot of a bed. It does not need to be big, bold, and expensive to make a statement. Remember that your decor should always suit your lifestyle!
