It’s official, we’re starry-eyed for all things celestial. Deep, inky tones, astronomical accessories and space-age soft furnishings are shooting across every room of the home this season, turning even the simplest of interiors into stylish supernovas. And with the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing just four months away, now is the time to snap up those on-trend and out-of-this-world pieces for your own home. Ready to reach for the stars? Let’s get lost in the celestial trend…
When it comes to intergalactic interiors, colour is everything. When choosing a colour scheme for your space look to the ethereal hues of the most beautiful galaxies: moody purples, inky blues and flashes of magenta. Depending on how dark you’re comfortable with going, start with a base of black or deep blue and introduce the galaxy-inspired colours through soft furnishings. Finish with starry metallics (gold works best) to create the feel of a night’s sky scattered with stars.
Astronomical accessories? The sky’s the limit. Your favourite interior brands have gone cosmic crazy this year, embracing the celestial trend in everything from tabletop must-haves to bedroom essentials. Diesel by Seletti’s now-iconic Cosmic Diner range is a visionary tableware collection inspired by the universe, and it’s the perfect set for embracing the celestial trend.
Like something straight from a galaxy far far away, each piece in Cosmic Diner collection has been carefully created in celebration of the most unknown. The storage containers take inspiration from the mythical figure of Saturn with its rings; the bowl and coffee cups take on the textures of the lunar craters, and the candlesticks take the form of rockets, ready to enter orbit and explore the weird & wonderful universe we call home.
In the bedroom and beyond, have a little fun by scattering star embellishments and astronomical prints throughout, remembering to introduce plenty of textures to keep the scheme liveable. We love crushed velvet for its ability to add cosiness without compromising style, and it’s the perfect pairing to the almost jewel-like tones of an intergalactic colour scheme.
Star motifs are now used in the most unexpected of home accessories, so whether it’s a trinket tray, a cushion or a statement clock, be bold and let your accessories do the talking.
