star wars inspiration for a kid room

Well, this may just be one of my favorite projects.  Yesterday, I shared the room for Lauren’s daughter, Lily, and today we’re sharing the room of her twin brother, Jack.  They had been sharing a room up until their sixth birthday, when Lauren decided it was time for them to each have their own space.  I asked Lauren what Jack liked and she said “Star Wars,” and I could hardly contain myself.

I was so excited to get to use these awesome Star Wars screenprinted posters by Concepcion Studios!  He has so many good ones, so definitely check out his shop.  It’s a great way to get the look without making a space feel cartoon-y or merchandised.  Han Solo and Boba look extra good in those Irvine Slim frames from Framebridge, too.

Jack’s room has an interesting shape.  It’s not very large, but has a high, pitched ceiling.  To draw the eye up and make use of the space, we painted the walls a light, happy gray called “Rock Candy” by Sherwin Williams, and painted the ceiling bright white to accentuate the shape, and then hung The Moon canvas (sadly, no longer available – but this one and this one are similar and can be printed large!) up high and hung the chandelier lower.  It makes the space feel entirely different than it did at first!

All of these pieces will serve Jack well as he grows.  Lauren can just change around the accessories and art if she wants to make it feel more mature (although many grown up guys love Star Wars!).  This chest is so beautiful!

These shelves make a great focal point.  They are perfect for displaying favorite reads, and are deep enough for some toys, which is so fun!  They are affordable and easy to install if you want to get the book shelf look affordably and without too much effort.

I think it’s safe to say Jack is happy with his new room!  He has twin beds since Lily’s room will also be a guest room, and they can still bunk together when they want.  Also, check out his adorable Star Wars PJ’s!

I had such a great time working on a boy space; it’s always a fun challenge to show how you can create a room that still feels tasteful even if it has some kid favorites thrown in!

    Oh I love this. Great job.

  2. Rachel says:

    Love everything in this room! I am about to start redoing my 6 year old’s room as well and have been looking for a metal bed like this.
    Are these standard height mattresses? And standard height box springs?

    • Joni says:

      Hi Rachel! They are standard height mattresses and box springs. I think you could get away with a thinner mattress or box springs if you want a lower profile, though. We tucked the bedskirt under the box springs to give it a neater look, too.

  3. Heather J says:

    Oh this is good! The pictures of Han and Boba take the cake. You’re so good!

    Love it! Finishing up a s Star Wars inspired room for my son. May I ask where the Atlanta pennant is from? We moved to SC from Atlanta but would love to add something to represent my son’s birth city. Thanks!

    I love both of the rooms Joni -beautiful job! It’s so fun to see your boards come to life. I wasn’t familiar with Joss and Main. I’ll go check them out :-).

  9. The book shelves are such an amazing idea! Love everything in this room!

  10. katie says:

    Obsessed. I know a 5 year old little boy who would love this room!

  11. Shannon Hardy says:

    Wow some beautiful baby nurseries! Love how some of them have themes but the themes are used really subtly. I was really against a theme for our nursery so we decorated it quite plainly, I wanted it to be fresh and airy. We did pick up some gorgeous nursery accessories to add a bit of colour.

  12. Lorena says:

    Where can I get those beds I love them!!!

  13. Jen says:

    Beautiful room, but most of the links no longer work. I’ve tested them on two different computers/networks. 🙁

  16. Tessa says:

    Such a lovely space for a little boy to call home! What is the paint colour, just the perfect tone!!

  17. Ashley says:

    I love this room so much! I wish my boys were into starwars! Can I ask where you purchased these beds?

  18. Kylie says:

    What is this paint color? Love it!

  19. Haley says:

    Are these beds black? Or dark bronze? You have such an amazing talent for designing these spaces! Thank you!

    • Joni says:

      Thanks so much, Haley! The beds are dark bronze. They are pretty dark, so they look almost black in the photos – but it’s the dark bronze finish.

  20. Mallory says:

    Hi Joni, what is the paint color for this room? It looks like the perfect blue/gray!

  21. Nicole says:

    Just curious where the beds were from? We are also about to do rooms for our six year old twins, that are now ready to separate.

  22. Ali says:

    Tried to find the curtains but the link no longer works. Love this room! Well done!

  23. Jill says:

    Hi Joni, thank you for the inspiration! I would love to know the size rug you purchased (looks like your kids’ beds are similar size to my two boys) and also did you purchase taupe or gray sheet set?
    Thanks for any help!

  24. Kelly says:

    What did you use to hang the Atlanta pennant? Need to hang some pennants in my sons’s room but don’t want to use pins or nails. Thanks!

    • Joni says:

      Hi Kelly! I used Washi tape – it works pretty great – sometimes you have to re-stick it, but it keeps you from having to use anything with a pointy end!:)

  25. Jill says:

    I love the black and white polka dot pillows but the link doesn’t work. Can you tell me what size they are?
