9 Ideas for a Cosmic Nursery

Looking for a nursery theme that’s out of this world? Go cosmic! There are so many ways to make a starry, constellation-inspired nursery work. So today we’re sharing 9 ideas for your cosmic nursery.

A Cosmic Color Palette

The color palette in a cosmic nursery can be as bright or as moody as you want to make it. Today’s theme is inspired by the night sky, so navy blues and golds are included in our color scheme. Choose blues that almost hinge on dark gray or black to make a big impact on your space, and include that color in the statement pieces like the chair, dresser and crib. With crisp white walls, these pieces will stand out in your cosmic nursery and will set the scene for the decor you include in your design.

In addition to deep blues, add in a little bit of fun with some metallics – gold and silver both look great in this room! Adding them should be simple too – they can be included in the lighting, legs of the chair and in little trinkets placed throughout the room. Gold foil art prints for the walls can also help achieve this look.

However you include these colors, your nursery will surely inspire your little one.

The Moon and Stars

Now that you have the basics covered, it’s time to add in the pieces that make this room a cosmic dream.

A solar system inspired mobile looks lovely hanging above the crib. A few starry night inspired pillows in navy and gold are wonderful nestled in the chair or placed in the crib for decoration.

Space inspired lighting is a must as well – a cosmic constellation lamp that projects stars onto the walls is a fun way to learn about the galaxy, and a moon themed night light is perfect for this nursery.

From space inspired tents to star inspired lighting, you’ll have no problem outfitting your little one’s cosmic nursery with the moon and stars.

Starry Attire

Take this theme further than just your little one’s room, bring it into all aspects of his life by finding some adorable little onesies inspired by space. Pieces adorned with rockets, stars and the moon will all tie your little one back to his nursery.

Have fun with his cosmic attire! A little astronaut outfit is perfect for a play date, and a cosmic hooded towel makes bath time just a little more fun. And when you add in moon and stars inspired accessories like teethers, rattles and blankets, your little one will be good to go.

Take the popular saying “I love you to the moon and back” one step further with a cosmic nursery that will inspire your little one to dream big and shoot for the stars.
