Help me find things to decorate my "Starry Starry Night" room?

Asked by troubleinharlem (7981points) September 8th, 2010

Okay, since we’ve just moved, I have a brand new bedroom! I got this big poster of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Starry Night’, and I’m looking for decorations so that I could have a sort of theme.

I’ve been searching on Etsy for star themed objects, but they mostly have jewelry. Does anyone have any Etsy-like websites, bedroom ideas, etc?

Maybe you should paint the room navy blue, or have just a wall painted according to the painting. Try to go for a more “provincial” look, so to speak and decorate with star-themed objects, as you are already planning on doing. And use curtains wisely! Good luck!

@radioethiopia : Well, the windows are kind of small so there wouldn’t really be any room for curtains anyway. But I was thinking… sort of star-shaped pillows, maybe?

That seems nice. You could also have dark blue bed sheets or something of the sort to complement the pillows.

Glow in the dark stick on stars.Oh Yeah! I had those when I was a kid.

Here is a VanGogh’s disappearing ear coffee mug that might make a nice accent piece. And here is the link to the VanGogh gift shop that may give you some inspiration. Here is a link to a light up Starry Night pillow and here is a Vincent VG action figure that might make a nice accent piece. Lastly, here is a cow painted to look like Starry Starry Night for the girl who has everything . . .

I like the stick-on stars idea! You could do a funky, swirly, blue-green tie dye on some bedsheets that mimic that painting. Take pics for us!
pssst, it’s just one “Starry”, btw. :D

I had stick-on stars when I was a kid and loved them! One of those hanging paper star lamps would also be great.

Kayak8’s ideas are great…I love throwing in the ear as an accent piece (though technicallllyyyyy….)
Could you do your own interpretation of a starry night from your window and hang it on the opposite wall? That could be cool.
