With a play on the current interior trend for everything space related, a superhero-inspired theme is an ideal way for Marvel fans to get creative and inject a big dose of personality into the home. Combining fun comic book references with a touch of cosmic-focused elements, here are three ways to add a Marvel-inspired look to new heights.

1. Highlight Marvel-inspired details and cosmic décor
One approach is to keep things simple, and allow the theme to come through in accessories and details. This allows for several themes to sit side by side, creating a cohesive and inviting space. Captain Marvel’s space origin story is an important part of her character, so it’s a perfect opportunity to weave in cosmic references alongside Easter eggs to reference the powerful Marvel heroine. A white bed and desk are great foundations to style around, and can offer a neutral backdrop for stronger, distinctive elements such as space-inspired artwork and wall decals, or a cosy bedspread with a galactic print.

An aesthetic that’s been gaining popularity in cosmetics, jewellery and the home, the celestial trend offers infinite possibilities when it comes to styling and colour inspiration. Using a lighter colour palette, such as cream and pink, can create a more airy, ethereal take on this than the traditional night sky colours of deep blue and purple. To top it off, cute details like a chic lunar garland and a retro lava lamp give the room its own unique touch without being too overpowering.

2. Personalise the room with some superhero DIY
Shopping for the right décor can often be tricky and expensive, but there are other ways to give the home an original, creative touch. The superhero theme is an exciting opportunity to get crafty with DIY projects. The possibilities are truly endless, and you’ll get to create something unique that you can proudly put on display.

Start off with small projects, like framing up your favourite comic pages or making drink coasters that can be used for entertaining guests. These simple DIYs allow for more flexibility when it comes to styling, especially when you’re not ready to embrace the trend head-on. But if you’re all set to make an eye-catching statement, a mixed media collage of your favourite superheroes would be an interesting piece to show off, while enamel pins add a cool touch to a wall display and cushions.

3. Take inspiration from comic book art with bold colours and patterns
The Marvel cinematic universe is an action-packed one that is full of character so don’t be afraid to customise the look based on your preferences. Take the chance to experiment with bold comic book colours which are a nice nod to the genre’s pop-art origins.

For example, a cosmic-inspired feature wall creates a strong focal point and showcases how a Marvel-inspired look can be modern and sophisticated, especially when paired with a sleek leather sofa. Adding smaller elements, like unique lighting fixtures, Marvel-themed cushions, and wall hooks highlight the theme while keeping it understated.
