You're all invited into my livingroom!

    After a long renovation project and lots of cash spent my new livingroom is finally starting to come together the way me and my girlfriend wanted it. Most of the props are still missing and the final prop display are far from finished but at least you get the idea. We really didn't want the props just to be stuffed into a dark corner but rather decorate the room around them, sort of giving the room a feel that worked well with the props. We also wanted the Star Wars /space theme to be present all over the room and not just around the prop "wall". We tried to get kind of a "cloud city" feel into our home, trying to pic out furnitures and lights that resembled those used on the set. As I said, still tons of stuff to do and add but at least it's finally starting to come together. Please step inside. :cheers

    The still very much WIP prop wall.


    And a final close up of the prop section.


    I really hoe you like it so far and I'm looking forward to show it when everything is in place. Still lots of helmets and studio scale models that haven't been finished or mounted yet. :) Thanks for looking, welcome back any time.

    That At-At on the pedastal looks wonderful. Very museum like in its quality. Very nice job. Also, I still love the Vader art on the big wall.

    Just don't overdo it. Simple looks better, if you ask me. Otherwise, it will just look cluttered, like my basement. :)

    WOW.. Amazing Steve :)

    I love the half stormtrooper too.Can i ask how many components you actually have on it?I was considering doing this myself due to space issues and i think yours looks great.I am assuming you only have the front and back plates,chest/shoulder straps and shoulder armour,and of course the amazing helmet :D

    Its so ironic ----but maybe it isnt---that the Vikings are ultra modern now.

    I say maybe not becasue the Vikings hade a definate history of incorporating the best of all cultures....such as your pad Steve..kewl.

    Hey were did you get the red vader panelling....that is uber hip dude.

    Whole place makes me think of something out of Clockwork Orange.

    Thanks for sharing the pics, it gave me lots of ideas to improve my set up. I really liked the set up for the AT-AT and trooper bust. That Vader painting is just great also. The shoe behind the door give it that lived in look. I give it an A+ and look forward to seeing the progress.

    Room has a bit of a "2001" and "Clockwork Orange" feel to it.

    Coming along very nicely, Steve.

    But didn't you say you were getting rid of everything except ESB? I think you'd better remove that ANH teaser poster from your hallway and send it over here right away. :love

    Seriously, lovely job by you and your ladyfriend. And as kewl as all those props are (love the AT-AT pedestal.), the Vader screens she painted for you still get my vote as most outstanding single item. :thumbsup :thumbsup :thumbsup

    Looking forward to more shots as work on the Wall of Props continues.

    Now that's a way of displaying a collection. I've been waiting to see your stuff for a couple of years but somehow it feels like you're holding back something.

    Trophy Points:
    Thanks a lot for all the kind words. Both me and my girlfriend (she's been working just as hard on the rooms as me) are very thrilled you guys like it. The 2001/clockwork orange comments are a great compliment to her, she did most of the decorating and she worked hard to get that retro look.

    rmschneider104, you're absolutely right. Not overdoing it has been one of our biggest prioritys. I've actually sold off two thirds of my collection in order to keep it clean. The new aditions will replace some of the temporary stuff. It's will still remain clean I promiss. :)

    Lee, it's a GF suit. I have the entire armour and it will be mounted onto a full manequin. Right now there's the helmet, front and back armour, and the shoulder bells.

    Trallis, the chair is a "panton lounge ball". We imported it from Germany, pretty cool right.

    Durasteel Corporation, the Vader pannels are acrylic paintings done by my girlfriend to me as a gift.

    temponaut, yes you're right. I will eventually get rid of everything not ESB. The ANH teaser poster in the hall will stay though, no matter what. ;)

    Coinprop, yes the AT-AT pedistal were custom made, I have more on the way that will hold some new stuff.

    Aztecface, you're absouletly right. The coolest stuff haven't even been added yet. I have at least two new helmets and three studio scale models that haven't been finished yet. Keep an eye open for new posts in the future. ;)

    Thanks again all, really looking forward to show it all again when it's finally finished.
