If you've seen the new Star Trek Into Darkness, you know two things: 1. John Harrison is not who he says he is, and 2. the sets are seriously drool worthy. So although I won't be boarding the Enterprise any time soon, that doesn't mean I can't borrow some of set design as inspiration to go boldly...well, you know.

The whole "space chic" look is really a big trend right now. From moon rugs to constellation art, there's something related to space exploration for nearly every room in the house.
