Space is big. Yes, we know, it’s always expanding.

But we’re talking about space in your home, as in home decor.

Stars, moons, planets and galaxies are showing up on everything from throw pillows to rugs to wood tabletops.

Tampa, Fla., artist Megan Lee makes ethereal prints of the planets as a tribute, she says, to our solar system and space exploration ($18 for an 8-by-10). See more at www.etsy.com/shop/meganlee.

Artisan and designer Asher Israelow makes walnut tables inlaid with brass dots that map out the constellations. Select a date and he makes a custom table depicting that star map. See them at www.asherisraelow.com.

Urban Outfitters has a cool glow-in-the-dark moon clock — a great kids’ night light that stays lit for half and hour after you turn off the switch. It’s $49 at www.urbanoutfitters.com.
