Under the Milky Way: Galaxy and Moon Phase Decor

Get ready to wish on a star, because today’s post celebrates all things galaxy-related. Nebulae, moon phase diagrams and clusters of stars are only the beginning. Once the visuals of “outdated” fantasy art, this night sky look has come back with a vengeance. Beautifully complementing Modern Boho design, galaxy style ranges from minimalist artwork to intentionally kitschy displays of universe-themed fabulousness. Ready for a closer look?…

When it comes to galaxy style in the retail realm, Urban Outfitters is by far the leader, offering a large selection of fiercely stylish, kitschy-with-a-wink products at affordable price points.

Moon Phase Mania

We now move from intricate universe-themed patterns to the more minimalist look of moon phase motifs. The cycle of the moon is the focus here, and often less is more when it comes to featuring moonlight and shadows. Etsy shop Pinepixel offers this gorgeous Moon Phases poster, printed on high-quality glossy paper:

As we’ve seen from today’s featured finds, celestial style is back—with a twist. These motifs are intentionally kitschy or intentionally minimalist, and both looks are perfect for today’s Modern Boho spaces. Would you incorporate galaxy and moon phase style into your home?
