Remember that in the movies, the space is black, sprinkled with white stars. The spaceships have an off-white and metal grey color. Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and the stormtroopers wear white, while Darth Vader is dressed in black. In Star Wars, everything is stark, with very little colors, except for when the lightsabers are firing and clashing, when the spaceships are exploding. When you think Star Wars, you think contrast, some bright glowing colors on a dark background, something mysterious and adventurous.
Decorations for the walls
