Moonstruck: Interior Design's Celestial Trend

Trend Report

Designers have been searching the cosmos for inspiration—with heavenly results.

Celestial Modern Lighting

Stars, orbs and other-worldly motifs have been permeating the interior design cosmos for some time, visible on everything from wallpaper to decorative objects. Celestial-inspired lighting, not surprisingly, has yielded some of the most inspired modern designs, tailor-made for planetary possibilities. The Karman Ululi Pendant light, above, is a case in point, its lace-embedded fiberglass globe emitting a hauntingly beautiful glow from a moon-like textured surface. The Vibia Cosmos Cluster Pendant makes a more abstract—but no less ethereal—statement, while the Arteriors Jiten Sconce bursts with golden radiance from either wall or ceiling.

Modern wallpaper designs are exhibiting both direct and indirect celestial influences with sophisticated results. Tempaper's Goodbye Moon temporary wallpaper, above, has a starry elegance that complements both formal and informal settings. Flavor Paper's Starglint Wallpaper presents a photo-realist mural in which a watery mylar surface ripples with reflections of sunlight and twinkling star bursts, and the ethereal metallic composition of Constellations is ready to adds subtle infusion of cosmic glamour to any contemporary interior scheme.
