Stargazer Galaxy Nursery-1

A well-designed nursery benefits from both form and function. After all, you and baby will be spending a lot of time here together! You want nursery decor that is both cute and practical. We think this modern galaxy nursery, designed by SuzAnn Kletzien Design, strikes just the right balance between function and fun for your future stargazer. 

Furniture with purpose: Our favorite piece in the room is this patchwork dresser from West Elm. It has style, personality, and most of all, you can store a lot of baby necessities in those drawers, $1,299. For a budget-friendly option, check out the Christian 8-drawer dresser only $454.99 from Overstock, with more storage space it’s the best bang for your buck!Christian patchwork 8 drawer dresser

The simple shape of the Oeuf crib belies the attention given to its design; it features a lower center of gravity and an unobstructed view of baby for extra safety. If you loved the Oeuf crib but want your dollar to go a long way, then we recommend the Baby Mod Olivia or Baby Mod Parklane crib designs for an upscale look at steal prices. Another feature we highly recommend in any crib choice is the ability to convert into a toddler bed which both collections offer. Baby Mod Olivia Nursery Crib

The rocker, end table, and lamp combination in the corner is your go-to setup in any nursery layout, perfect for nighttime feedings. This particular rocker from Nursery Works is a modern combination of the classical rocker and tufted chair elegance giving this nursery the perfect touch to a well designed room. Now if you really loved it, we found it on Amazon for $100 less, but if you’re on a budget consider these other options that hold the same upscale modern design for a lot less. The Dorel Living Baby Relax Brielle Tufted rocker ties in with this nursery’s looks, while the Barcelona-City Modern Design Rocking Lounge Chair adds a touch of minimalistic modern inspiration. We can’t decide which one we like more! Barcelona-City Modern Design Rocking Lounge ChairDorel Living Baby Relax Brielle Button Tufted

Engaging accents: A great method for decorating any room is including a focal point to showcase the room’s main colors, then interspersing those colors throughout the design. The back wall achieves just that while being bold, but not overwhelming. Creating an accent wall by painting one wall a darker color and the rest neutral leaves the room with a coherent palette, though still with an open feel. You can achieve this “starry wall” with a stencil or vinyl dots like these from Land of Nod.

A fun collection of vintage prints completes this stargazer theme. You can check out Etsy stores like this one or Google vintage printable art. Mix in your favorite color scheme and vintage prints, and this functional design is a great foundation for any nursery.
