This space clock could be a subtle way to inject a "Star Wars" vibe into any room. The glow-in-the-dark clock shows a view of the heavens as seen near the North Pole and includes all the constellations. It would look particularly fab against a wall that was painted a darker color such as black or navy blue.

Details Pack Powerful Punch in Boys' Bedroom
This boys' room features high ceilings and a wall ledge above the closet. Little Crown Interiors wanted to ensure this space was used wisely, so the eye would be drawn up and around the entire bedroom. To do this, they created custom wood wall names for both boys, placed them above the closet and added decor on the ledge to keep the color palette going throughout the whole space.

Launched in 1957 by the Soviet Union, the very first satellite to ever orbit the Earth was called the Sputnik. It took us straight into the Atomic Age, during which many pieces of furniture and decor were inspired by this new space age exploration. The Sputnik chandelier is one of the classic pieces from that time period. This is a chic, inexpensive fixture inspired by the original Sputnik.
