The cosmic trend has emerged within both fashion and interiors this year and we’re feeling totally inspired! For a look that’s out of this world, start with a dark backdrop then add jewel tones, metallic elements and iridescent accessories.
Dark walls are bang on trend and will immediately set the scene for a galaxy inspired room. Midnight blue and charcoal black work well as a backdrop alongside deep jewel tones including purples, greens and blues. Star sign artwork, space inspired wallpaper or constellation maps can be used to create a feature wall for a real style statement. We love this cosmic mural from Etsy which brings a dreamy vibe to the bedroom.
Flashes of bright white, vibrant pink and acid green will create a dramatic contrast in your space. Choose a few simple soft furnishings like blankets and scatter cushions in the vibrant colours of the aurora borealis. We love Zazzle.co.uk for their wide range of galaxy inspired soft furnishings.
Accessories can be used to replicate moonlight and stardust in a cosmic themed room. Iridescent surfaces and objects with a glitter effect are perfect for giving your space an edge. Try adding mirrors and glass which will reflect light around the room and add interest. Mood lighting and candles (like this one from Rockett St George) will help to create a mystical mood and keep things cosy in the colder months.
We love this edgy, brass and glass coffee table from Atkin and Thyme; the geometric shape and sharp edges give it a spacey look and make it perfect for this scheme. Bring in geometric shapes and patterns with furniture, lighting, printed throws and scatter cushions.
Complete the look with metallic elements and luxe silver and gold accessories. One of our favourite lighting options for this other-worldly scheme is this planet inspired ceiling pendant from Rockett St George, which looks great against a dark backdrop.
