Fandom Home Decor

You've probably noticed lately that I haven't been posting as many styled outfits and fashion inspiration as often as I usually would. That's because my fiancé and I have been spending much of our free time sprucing up the house and giving it a more cozy feel. After re-painting all of the upstairs living space, building new furniture, and adding some decorative touches, I really feel at home. While updating the house, I've enjoyed adding my favorite fandoms into the decor without making it look too overwhelming. Here are some of the things we've created to show off our favorite fandoms in the house.


There's this space between our guest bedrooms that I like to call the "nook" because it's a perfect little hideaway to sit down and focus on work. I use this space as my every day office now that I get to work from home. Prior to the redecorating, this room mostly collected clutter and had bookcases lining the walls that made the nook appear much smaller. We took out the bookshelves, Shaun built an awesome window seat, and he mounted some floating shelves on the walls for my collectibles. Since I sit in this space during most of the day, we also got a pegboard for one side where I can store all of my external hard drives, charging cables, and headphones.


The shelves on the left side are lined with most of my Star Wars vintage action figures and prized possessions. The top shelf is covered with figures from The Empire Strikes Back while the second shelf displays my Mos Eisley Cantina play set. I love how colorful these shelves look with all the figures! We found these shelves at Home Depot in case you were wondering.


The shelves on the right side of the windows are sort of a "catch all" area with extra Star Wars collectibles, Indiana Jones items, and little Game of Thrones mystery minis. Since my Return of the Jedi action figure collection is pretty small, I put them on this side too. The pegboard and containers are from IKEA and come in various sizes. 


To finish off the area, I covered the window seat with cozy blankets and pillows- one of which is a Darth Vader tsum tsum from the Disney Store! Shaun also found a replica of the Star Tours sign and painted it to look exactly like what you'd see in Disneyland. It's so perfect that the ceiling of this room comes to a point because it really accents the shape of the sign. 



Another sign that he found online was one of my all time favorite pieces that dons the entrance to Disneyland. "Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy" is so obviously Disney, but also very subtle at the same time. At first glance, you might not realize what this is from, but the die-hard Disney fans will recognize it immediately. It was a pain to paint and finish, but it was well worth the final product. We decided to hang it at the entrance to the master suite and I think it's the perfect touch. 


There's still lots more to decorate around the house, but I like our progress so far. We have so many things to display soon like LEGOs, clone trooper helmets, and more. What's your favorite way to incorporate your favorite fandoms into your home? Let me know in the comments below!
