When I think of a typical theme room, I immediately think of a room that will look dated in 6 months. A lot of designers stay away from designing around a theme because it is very easily dated and corny. However, there are so many ways to design with a theme without the cheese.
Here is how I do it in this new Star Wars Themed Space.
Color creates a mood. It is dark in space, so a dark color scheme is the go-to palette to create the moody ambiance I want.
The art I choose for the space is not overt. It is artistic and creative and cool. I avoid the overtly gimmicky movie paraphernalia for something more creative. In a theme room, color is a huge factor. It can set the entire tone of the space without needing anything more obvious.
If you cannot have fun in a movie room, you are doing it wrong. These lightsabers breaking through this teenager’s wall, funky lamp, and baby Yoda on the hanging swing are ways we had fun here. In another room might be a fun pillow, funky rug, or interesting accent.
