Set them shooting for the stars in a bedroom from outer space.

space intro

Kids with a love of exploring have always loved space, and research suggests that even thinking about space can help encourage their imagination. This room is a fantastic way to inspire your child and get them to begin wondering about the world around them. 

Space is an infinitely fascinating and inspiring subject matter, so encourage your little cosmonauts’ curiosity with a room that’s full of wonder. A bedroom that’s out of this earth will also help them to dream big – you never know, they may even get the stars in their sights.

Journey into the Solar system


It may be the final frontier of bedroom design, but this galactic paint-effect isn’t rocket science. Read on for our step-by-step instructions.

Step-by-step guide

Step 1

First paint your walls and ceiling with Lost Lake and paint your mural wall in Rich Black - this will be the backdrop for your galaxy.

Step 2

Make sure everything you don’t want covered in splashes of paint is masked off; dust sheeted over and protected – including yourself (wear old clothes, protective goggles and an old hat!)

Step 3

Thin down some Purple Pout and Striking Cyan with some water. A good ratio for this is 1/3 paint to 2/3 of water.

Step 4

Use the colours one at a time, starting with Striking Cyan. Dip a small paintbrush into the paint and then hold it in front of the black wall. Sharply tap the paintbrush against the handle of another paint brush and send the paint spattering onto the wall to create a galaxy effect.

Step 5

Add lesser amounts of Purple Pout over the top, then finish with White Cotton last of all, using the flicking technique.

Step 6

Run a bit of White Cotton along the edge of a folder piece of paper to make the odd star look like they are twinkling.

Step 7

Pick out a few stars and make them bigger by adding some more white paint on the end of a cotton bud.

Step 8

Allow to dry and prepare for launch…
