Maybe you’ve always dreamed about blasting off to the moon and taking a trip around the glistening galaxy. Or maybe your kids are fascinated with everything extraterrestrial. In either case, a spacecore aesthetic might be just what your home needs. Transforming a standard room with this out-of-this-world style can inspire your mind and get you thinking like an astronomer. All you need are some creativity and this guide to get you started.
What is the spacecore aesthetic?
The spacecore aesthetic is based on anything and everything in space, such as planets, galaxies, stars, nebulas, and moons. However, this aesthetic isn’t just about what’s in the sky – spacecore can also include the technology needed to observe and study the cosmic phenomena. Many fans of the spacecore aesthetic might enjoy retro and Space Age themes, telescopes, stargazing, astrology, and astronomy.
What is mooncore?
While spacecore involves all things related to or in the galaxy, mooncore revolves around a deep appreciation and interest for just the moon. Although it focuses mainly on the moon, those who love the dreamy mooncore aesthetic often value the stars around it too. Mooncore enthusiasts often also appreciate the effects the moon has on the solar system.
Where does the spacecore aesthetic come from?
The spacecore aesthetic draws its style from well-known visual images of the galaxy. Dark blues, purple, green, and fuschia are common colors found in space. The spacecore aesthetic uses these hues – and expands on them – to create divine astral color palettes. It also includes the patterns of stars, planets, and interstellar clouds to design gorgeous cosmic sights.
How to get the spacecore aesthetic
If you’re not sure what exactly goes into the spacecore aesthetic, take a second to close your eyes and mentally visualize common outer space elements. Need a few more ideas? Below is a list of popular space visuals to help you bring outer space home.
- Stars. No galaxy is complete without lots of shining, shimmering, splendid stars to illuminate the dark night sky.
- Moons. This cratered silver sphere does much more than cast an ethereal glow. It brings the Earth to life.
- Planets. You can’t forget about planets when designing your spacecore aesthetic. After all, without them, the solar system wouldn’t exist.
- Telescopes. Putting up stickers of stars, moons, and planets is great, but observing the solar system with your own eyes through a telescope is something else.
- Crystals. Sparkling crystals can amplify the beauty of the galaxy’s mesmerizing space objects.
- UFOs and aliens. Part of the fascination with space is the mystery of what’s out there. Let your imagination fly with the thought of UFOs and aliens blazing through the nebula.
- Constellations. These groups of stars can be fun to spot and intriguing to track – and create in your home.
- Nebulas. When interstellar dust mixes with gas, a tranquil yet captivating scene of blues, purples, greens, and reds emerges.
- Galaxies. From our Milky Way to other galaxies far away, these collections of swirling stars, and radiant dust clouds are the epitome of spacecore.
- Astronauts. Many spacecore enthusiasts dream of becoming an astronaut to step foot on a new planet and explore the depths of space.
- Solar systems. The sun, the moon, planets, and stars create our wonderful solar system that can become part of your home.
13 Space Age decor items for your spacecore aesthetic
From murals and projectors to clothes and accessories, there are endless ways to bring the Space Age right under your own roof. These spectacular spacecore aesthetic decor ideas can take your home out of this world.
1. Glow-in-the-dark stars
When the sun goes down and the moon comes out, spacecore enthusiasts can probably be found staring at the twinkling stars in the night sky. Does this sound like you? If so, the magic doesn’t have to stop once you head back inside. With glow-in-the-dark stars, you can peel and stick a variety of stars all over your ceiling. You’ll drift off to sleep while gazing into your very own constellation.
2. Star and galaxy projectors
If you can’t blast off into outer space, you can always bring outer space to you. Star and galaxy projectors shine an entire cosmos around you, allowing you to view your room like never before.

This way, at the end of a long day, you can climb into your bed, and get tucked under enthralling galactic images and nebulas. While you dream, the entire universe will be right there to provide warmth, inspiration, and transcendence.
6. Wall murals
In small spaces, wall murals can be a perfect way to show off your spacecore aesthetic without taking up additional room. You can paint an enchanting galaxy wall mural to show off your artistic side. With alluring blue and purple hues over a black base, your mural wall will immediately catch the eye of anyone who sees it. Take it one step further and paint some of your favorite constellations in silver for an extraordinary flair.
7. Galaxy tapestries
Wall murals aren’t the only way to use your wall space for decor. For a quick wall transformation that requires no messy paint, hang a galaxy tapestry. This gives you the flexibility to move your galaxy around your room or swap it out for something different without the need for repainting. Choose from bold and vivid colors or subtle black and whites – there’s a tapestry for every type of spacecore aesthetic.
8. Crystal solar system ball
This crystal ball won’t show you the future, but it will show you the entire solar system. Brilliant stars and glowing planets inside a shiny crystal ball can capture your attention and set a calming mood. Place it on your desk, nightstand, bookcase, or shelf for a unique addition to your decor. You can hold the whole Milky Way in the palm of your hands.
9. Alien figurines
Instill a sense of extraterrestrial mystery and intrigue with alien figurines placed around your room. You can display a collection you already have or start a new one full of saucers and weird green humanoid aliens. Large, small, glow-in-the-dark, rare, and cute alien figurines can all give your area otherworldly vibes.
10. Vintage sci-fi props
Although you can’t just take a quick trip to outer space and back for some phenomenal intergalactic decor, you can do the next best thing. That would be taking a trip to an antique store for some vintage sci-fi props. Thrift and antique stores can be gold mines for retro and vintage space accessories that take you back in time and forward into space.
11. Astronomical art
Trying to keep your room modern and chic? Astronomical art combines abstract imagery, impressionism, and realism into awe-inspiring space art. With exquisite details and elegant imagery, your room will become a captivating universe all its own.
12. Glitter star blankets
Feel safe, cozy, and stylish as you drift asleep under your glitter star blanket. These soft throws can add a fashionable touch of space to your decor.
