If there's one trend that we've seen touch pretty much every facet of design in the past few years (particularly home decor, fashion, and wedding decor), it's the "Starry Night" celestial one. There's something about this trend that feels both old-world and modern, especially when the designs use new materials and mediums to create that moody, celestial look. For instance: we love seeing deep blue ceramics with a fine gold splattered finish to mimic the stars.
If you're thinking about trying this starry theme for your wedding, it's important to make sure they you use design elements that feel sophisticated, and don't veer into juvenile territory (no glow-in-the-dark stars from your childhood). The trick here is to stick to blues that feel ultra deep and dusty; and don't feel you need to bring in too much blue—just add touches here and there. Then, bring in some accents of metallics (we think coppers and gold work the best) and nods to celestial (you can go more literal with some of your paper goods).
You can essentially apply the same rules when using this celestial theme in your home decor. We're into framed vintage night-sky maps, modern moon-phase china (see below, it's awesome), and a superbly crafted celestial quilt (again, pictured below—you'll have to see it to believe it).
So, here are 12 pieces of celestial decor for your home or wedding you can buy ASAP.
