Modern Style Meets the Stars, Sun and Moon

When it comes to modern interior design, sometimes it pays to let the heavens be your guide! In fact, star, sun and moon motifs are making a big impact in the realm of decor, especially decor with a Bohemian vibe. Blogger Justina Blakeney of The Jungalow uses the term “Cosmic Bohemian” to describe a design style that combines Boho flair with star and moon motifs. There is indeed something interesting about blending earthy items with heavenly themes. In today’s post we shamelessly revel in celestial style, rounding up an array of cosmic creations that represent modern design at its finest…

Inspired by the Sun

The majority of the items featured in today’s post (and all of the products in this section) come from Urban Outfitters, as this brand offers a wide array of celestial-themed items. In fact, UO is helping to lead the pack when it comes to Boho style with a cosmic twist. This Le Soleil Art Print from Merrick Angle of Double Merrick has a fabulous retro-modern feel:

It may not be a replica of the sun, but this Fringe Wall Hanging evokes the warmth of the sun and its rays. Bronze-toned metal is the material of choice:

There’s nothing like the beauty of the sun setting above the mountains! Urban Outfitters’ Guido Montanes Sunset Mountains Art Print captures the hazy orange light of a sunny evening:

We love a good wall decal, don’t you?! This Walls Need Love Sunset Beach Wall Decal celebrates the beauty of the sunset over the water. Plus, it’s made from repositionable vinyl, which means it’s easy to move if you want to try it in a different location!

As we prepare to transition from the sun to the moon, let’s enjoy the fact that both celestial bodies are represented in this Magical Thinking Mystical Folk Tapestry from Urban Outfitters. Bonus: it’s super soft!

Magical Moon Style

Lunar style is alive and well this season, and as we’ll see below, moon phase motifs are definitely on the rise. This first featured moon-inspired find truly IS magical! That’s because it glows in the dark. Say hello to Urban Outfitters’ Decorative Glass Moon:

Look to the Stars

We end today’s post with star-filled motifs that are a throwback to the galaxy-themed art of yore. Sleep under the stars every night when you cover up with the Shannon Clark for DENY Love Under the Stars Duvet Cover from Urban Outfitters. In fact, the majority of the finds below are from UO, once again proving that this brand is a leader in modern cosmic style.
