Your new sweet baby is about to become the center of your universe, so why not go with an outer space themed nursery?

There are so many great options to make your baby’s room totally out of this world. Navy blue starry night skies with bright dots of stars create a dark and calm nursery mood.

We found cartoonish sweet images of smiling stars and also more realistic constellation patterns. The possibilities are endless!

Little accents like this can really help create the perfect space for your little boy or girl. There are so many of these pillows that use a neutral color scheme, which is great if you’re waiting to find out the gender.

Consider adding one of these pillows to your rocking chair or glider. A large crescent moon pillow might even double as a nursing pillow in a pinch, haha!

Moon and Star Wall Decals

Cover your nursery walls with a celestial motif with these fun moon, star, and cloud wall decals.

Wall decals are such a great way to create a beautiful nursery feature wall without all the work of wallpaper.

Decals are usually not permanent, so if you’re looking for a little star or moon accent wall that you can easily remove later this is a safe way to do so.

These decals come in all sorts of styles. We found a starry simple design, a modern look with a realistic full moon and even a softer watercolor-style decal option you will want to check out.

Wallpaper can create a dramatic accent wall in your moon and stars nursery that is sure to impress.

You can create a wall of constellations or a sparkling starry sky with these great options. Some of these wallpaper options use a bold navy or dark blue background that really makes the small twinkling stars stand out.

Others are a more neutral gray and beige for a slightly muted effect. If you’re looking for a great way to showcase the star and moon theme in your baby’s nursery, using wallpaper like this can really set the stage for the whole room’s color palette.

It’s a beautiful way to brighten up the rest of the room.

There are customizable hand made options on Etsy, fun modern nova star shaped lamps, sleek crescent moons, and we even found a lamp that can clip straight to your crib or bookshelf to add a touch of reading light or light to feed your baby by when the rest of the room is dark.

Moon and Star Rugs

A full moon rug would fit in nicely in an outer space themed nursery.

There are also so many options for a more subtle effect that could fit in with a light gray nursery or a baby blue nursery color scheme.

Adding a rug to your baby’s room is a practical way to showcase the theme, it can also be used as a safe soft space for your baby to practice tummy time.

If you have hardwood floors in your space, a rug can also be a great way to keep your toes warm when rocking or gliding your little one off to sleep.

There are so many great sizes to choose from, I’m sure you can find one here that fits your room perfectly.
