The sky-inspired look will transform the space into a soothing respite for both the baby and parents. Use favourite nursery rhymes and books as inspiration when designing the room.

Paint the nursery's walls a pale yellow or midnight blue shade to set the tone for a celestial theme. To lighten up dark walls, hang a yellow sun, moon and star-patterned wallpaper border. Add pizazz to yellow walls with a dark blue wallpaper border featuring white moon and star designs.
Decorate floors with themed rugs. Add softness to tile or wood floors with star and moon-shaped rugs. Choose traditional yellow or white rugs, or get creative with pink, blue or green star and moon-inspired floor coverings. Another option is to place a large blue rug featuring yellow moon and star shapes in the centre of the room.
Hang a celestial-themed crib mobile. Send baby off to dreamland with rotating sun, moon and star shapes. Enhance crib bedding with charming star-shaped pillows.
Update worn nursery furniture with paint. Enhance the crib and dresser with nontoxic white paint. Use stencils to create yellow and blue star and moon patterns on the furniture.
Complete the celestial look with moon and star decor details. Enhance a ceiling fan with a star or moon-shaped chain pull. Replace boring light switch covers with dark blue versions featuring tiny white star designs. Place glow-in-the-dark star decals on the nursery ceiling.
