1. Paint your ceiling or walls to look like the night sky. However, avoid painting both ceilings and walls dark colors, as it will make the room seem smaller. If you want the whole room blue, consider using lighter and darker shades. Accents walls are also an excellent way to bring the colors you want into a room while keeping the space feeling expansive.

2. Wall decals of planets, stars, and spaceships brings the mysteries of the solar system into your bedroom. Wall decals can also be used to create murals without the hassle, materials,  and talent necessary to paint a mural.
