Start’em Young1

Here is a sure-fire way to make sure your kid is a Star Wars junkie from birth: force him/her to be surrounded by the galaxy far, far away.

Robin and Mark Trojanowski, an avid Star Wars fan and masterful sewer (we’re not saying which one is which), handcrafted a custom nursery for their new son, Miles. Their creativity is a testament to how far Star Wars fans will go to assure their young are as zealous as they are about a certain imaginary world. 

Pillowcases and liners for baskets are made of old Star Wars sheets (I actually still have mine somewhere).  Multiple bobble-head dolls grace the shelves, adding a sort of creepy quality to the room.

A satirical replica of one of the original Star Wars posters adorns one wall—with the image of Luke Skywalker replaced by a representation of baby Miles.

 But the most insidious design aspect of this room is the mobile.

 

Compiled of Star Wars Christmas ornaments, the mobile is strategically placed over the crib so that the poor kid has no choice but to stare at it.  And hopefully not swat at it and bring the Empire down. 

I love this DIY n0stalgic imagery that personalizes the room without robbing the bank account.

And it gives me an idea.  When (if) I ever have a child, I want to decorate his/her nursery with items from a favorite film of mine: The Exorcist.
