We know you want to give your little one the world, but how about the whole galaxy while you’re at it? A space-themed nursery is such a fun choice for a baby boy or girl, and can be taken in seemingly infinite directions, from dark and moody to bright and understated. Whether you’re opting for full-on moonwalking splendor and rockets in flight, or soft stargazing and a scattering of planets, here’s some of our favorite space-themed nursery inspiration. Your little bundle of joy is about to absolutely rock your world; have fun doing the same for them with a space nursery theme.
