Lunar Decor! Who would have thought? Drawing inspiration from the stars and universe above us to enhance the contemplative mood, the theme is expressed through a collection of neutrals and blues for a deep, tonal palette.

Key Influences include – Space and the galaxy, deep and moody colour, lunar greys and neutrals, night sky blue.

Grey is the new white in decor. It is elegant, neutral, peaceful and forgiving. Choosing the right shade of grey can be tricky however. The ‘temperature’ of a particular shade, warm or cool,  has an important impact on the mood of a room.

How fabulous, correct?  We rounded up our favourite examples of lunar/astral decor.

The surface of the Moon has a huge number of impact craters from comets and asteroids that have collided with the surface over time, giving it its distinct visual appearance.

Marble and concrete have a similar aesthetic. They are timeless, durable, intriguing materials when used in decor and furniture.
