10 Best: Ideas for a space-themed room

Space. The Final Frontier. And a fantastic theme for a child’s room. There’s so much material out there that I found this really tricky, but here are a few extra terrestrial ideas. 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… Blast off! On the walls, you can’t go far wrong with Kakemono from innovative French company Carton Chic. Is it a rocket? Is it a wall sticker? Is it a height chart? No, it’s all three. £62, Little Fashion Gallery.

Again, there’s a galaxy of appropriate artwork for this theme, but Keep Calm Gallery’s modern typographic take on a favourite bedtime song took my fancy. And it’s sparkly. Twinkle Twinkle print, £28.

I’m also loving this mini Space Invaders mirror. You could buy a few and create a formation for a unique piece of wall art – would look fab if the wall was painted a dark colour. £15, Hunky Dory Home.

There are loads of bedsets emblazoned with in-your-face spaceships and aliens, but I rather like the understated appliqued rocket, satellite and solar system of this 200-thread count cotton and denim duvet cover from The White Company, £38 for cotbed size.

There’s only really one light that does the job – Habitat’s Moonbuzz, £80. Unfortunately, it’s out of stock at the moment, but I’ve come up with an equally cool alternative from Pulpo – the Orbit, available in red, white or black. €159, Kids Love Design.

Flensted mobiles are  classics and of those mobile, this 1956-designed Science Fiction is iconic. Five cardboard circles and a plastic ball cast all manner of intriguing shadows. And it’s a bargain at £15.50 from Drift Living.

On the floor, this solar system rug is almost as expensive as moon rock, but would add a great pop of colour (and could be argued for as an education purchase). £174 per square metre, Hill & Co.

Talking of moon rock, I’ve mentioned this floor cushion before, but it really is rather brilliant and would be out of this world (sorry!) for a book nook. £275, Pedlars.

Cardboard rockets are such a genius invention and again, there’s a universe to choose from – the most keenly priced I’ve found is this Kid-Eco model over at Red Jelly Kids, whose vintage-style painting smocks I featured a while ago, for a mere £32.95. Opt for brown or white and decorate yourselves or try pink or silver.

In terms of finishing touches, I love Esthex’s Rocket Music Box, Playsam’s wooden rocket, Pintoy’s space station and Anne Claire Petit’s crochet rocket, but I eventually plumped for Great Little Trading Company‘s cushion, a snip at £12.
