Illinois Couple Show Off Their Baby’s Star Wars Themed Nursery

If you're in the market for some nursery décor inspiration, we have a great one for you. Two "Star Wars" fanatics from Grayslake, Illinois, outfitted their son Rocky's nursery in an homage to their favorite sci-fi trilogy. (Wait -- why isn't he named Luke? Just asking.)

Setting the scene is a throw pillow with these words: "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…" Color-changing light sabers are mounted above the crib, next to a memorable quote from Han Solo, "I think you just can't bear to let a gorgeous guy like me out of your sight."

The most eye-catching piece, however, is a white fluffy rug that looks like a wampa. For those who don't know, a wampa is an ice monster from "The Empire Strikes Back." Its furry arms make for a cozy napping spot.

People on Twitter are loving Rocky's room. One woman called it "the best nursery ever." I'd like to throw out another movie-theme suggestion. "Twilight" would be the most appropriate for my night-owl daughters.
