Star Wars Home Office Designs for adults by Jennifer Terry of Calm and CollectedI actually had a client (a grown man and his wife) ask me to design a Star Wars home office! As a Star Wars fan, I was actually quite excited about the prospect! Excited and a little daunted. How does one design a Star Wars home office for adults and not have it come out looking like an 8 year old boy’s bedroom?!?! Well, I started with some inspiration photos.

I like to give my clients two concept boards showing two different ways we can take the room. I thought we could do a “dark side” and a “light side”. For the “dark side” I used an image of the Chancellor’s office from Star Wars II (or the 5th movie if, like me, you go by when they were released). I’m using “dark side” strictly in the sense that the walls and furniture in this photo are darker than the ones in my second photo. “Dark” is not a commentary on the Chancellor as I *gasp* did not care too much for the second run of three Star Wars movies and don’t have much memory of the scene below. My apologies to you, die-hard Star Wars fans. Let’s just look at the walls and furniture below.

My second inspiration photo is a “light side” photo of the interior of *swoon* the Millennium Falcon, from the REAL Star Wars movies. Kidding! Just kidding! Sort of. Anyway, you can tell this is an artist concept because it looks a lot cleaner than I remember the Falcon being in any of the movies!Inspirational image- the Millenium Falcon used to design a home office

So- how do we take these inspiration images and turn them into Star Wars Themed home Office concepts for adults?  Let’s see…

"Dark side" Design concept for a Star Wars themed Home office for adults! designed by Jennifer Terry of Calm & Collected

The client wanted desk space for himself and his wife, a table where they could hold family meetings and their kids can do their homework and a seating area to relax and read. For the “dark side” concept, I took the burgundy wall color from the inspiration photo and dark, modern, angular furniture. I also sparingly used some actual Star Wars products like the Han Solo Trapped in Carbonite Rug, an R2D2 trashcan and “blueprints” of an x-wing bomber, a tie fighter and an AT AT.

For the “light side” concept, I used a lot of whites and grays. I don’t know if you can actually buy a mural of the Millennium Falcon going into light speed, but someone should make one! It’s too cool of an idea to not be out there somewhere! I kept the Han Solo rug because …well…I think it’s clever. I also kept the light saber room lights. The industrial concrete stools really drive this concept home.

I’ll put the inspiration photos directly above the concepts so you don’t have to keep scrolling to compare them:

I want to show you one other way to include Star Wars in an adult home office. This design is one I did for a client’s dining room, but it could just as easily be a home office. Here I just swapped out the dining table for a desk and rolling chair:

On the wall are two sets of retro Star Wars movie posters found on Etsy. Do you want some of these items for your own home office? I can link to some of the products below. I do not make any money from these links. I just want you to be able find what you need!

If you’ve followed my blog at all, you know that I love to make custom cards! I’ve been making them for Christmas for years and I made one when my first son graduated high school. Now my middle son is about to graduate and I’m starting to think about custom cards again! I CANNOT think about him graduating yet. Ack! We already got his senior photos taken and it kills me! But I CAN think about cards…the key is to disconnect the two things in my brain! LOL! As I was thinking about making a custom grad card, I was contacted by Basic Invite and asked to take a look at their cards. I’m serious! These events actually overlapped! Of course, I went right to their site and let me say, “Wow!”Article about custom graduation cards at Basic Invite by Calm and Collected blogger, Jennifer Terry

I made that custom card above! LOL! It seemed fitting to use their cards to make a title photo for this post.  They have lots of photo graduation cards to choose from as well as customizable graduation invitations.  What I was impressed with was the scope of possibilities for customization. They have tons of color options that you can instantly preview online. Once you select a design you can change each element on the card (your photo, obviously and each line of text) so that you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail.Article about custom graduation cards at Basic Invite by Calm and Collected blogger, Jennifer Terry

Want to see the one I was playing with? It’s not a great photo, but I still like it: Graduation Card Calm & Collected made on Basic Invite's website

The school colors are maroon, black and white. I was able to make 2017 a muted maroon color. They have a LOT of fonts to choose from, too! Want to see how this card looked originally? 

This is not the card I’ll send. I’m thinking of taking him somewhere and snapping an artsy photo of him. He’s my creative child. He’s going to study animation in college, so I need a fitting artsy photo of him. No matter what photo I end up using, I like that I can customize my text to pop off of it.

Then I can choose an envelope color to match.  Basic Invite has over 40 different envelope colors. We can make this invitation stand out even before it is opened! And I don’t have to lick them!!! All of their envelopes are peel and seal! I hate licking envelopes. (Hey- I once read that licking a postage stamps adds 20 calories to your diet! On a terrible tangent…I looked this up to see if it was true and found that American stamps have 5.9 calories, but British commemorative stamps have 14.5! The more you know!)

And just so you know:  you can order just one card to preview it. I mean, I can see on the computer screen that I like how it looks, but I like that I can hold one and see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before I place my order.

Do you want to play, too? Basic Invite is offering my readers 15% off when you enter the code 15FF51. Let me know if you try them out!
