If you are a huge lover of the spacecore aesthetic and would like your bedroom to have astro / galaxy room vibes, then here`s our Top 10 Design Tips and Ideas to transform your bedroom into a stunning Aesthetic Galaxy Room.

1. Spacecore Color Palette 

Now before you start going design crazy on your room, you’ll need to pick a starting color palette for your room. Whether you go with a ton of coordinating colors or keep it simple at just one or two, you should always have one foundation color to ground the room. When choosing a color palette for your galaxy room, one option would be to use dark neutral tones like navy blue or a dark grey, as this will help create the ideal background for your galaxy posters and wall art to visually stand out. We would however suggest to keep your ceiling and walls mostly white as this will be the best wall color for your galaxy room lighting, which we will discuss in more detail below. 

2. Spacecore Visuals

Spacecore visuals include things such as galaxies, stars, nebulae, planets, moons, and overall pictures of the universe, as well as things like telescopes, space rockets, and spaceships traveling far distances to foreign planets. Retro and Space-Age influences are popular themes in the spacecore aesthetic. This is a list of popular visuals in the spacecore aesthetic:
