If You're Gunning For Parent Of The Year, Buy Your Kid This $14,300 Spaceship Bed

We've seen some pretty amazing space-ship themed beds before, but this one is from another galaxy altogether. Introducing the "Deepspace Defender Spaceship Bed," a rocket ship bed that's ready for liftoff and almost (kinda, not really) costs as much as a real spaceship.

The high-tech sleeper was designed and developed by Fable Bedworks, a company that specializes in designer, custom-theme beds.

The Fable Bedworks website describes the "Deepspace Defender Spaceship Bed" as the "perfect landing zone for little astronauts ready to dream about the final frontier."

Buyers will have to reach deep into their pockets to purchase one, as the "Defender" requires a $7,150 deposit to secure the $14,300 otherworldly sleeper. Thankfully, shipping and assembly costs are included for residents of the U.S. and Canada.

The bed is raised or lowered with finger-tip control and a light-up keypad built into the "Defender" will turn off bedroom lights. Kids can hide trinkets within secret shelving or store space-themed gear on any of the five shelves available. "Deepspace Defender Outer Space Theme bedding" will complete the whole look for $260.

A Newer Way To Do Gray

"Gray is not going away," says Jackie Jordan, director of Color Marketing for Sherwin-Williams. Yes, it's been trending as a bedroom color for years, but she notes that people have recently been gravitating to those with opal and violet undertones. It obviously goes well with metallics, but it also pairs nicely with natural elements like driftwood or wool. Gray isn't as neutral as you might think, says Jordan. Warmer tints can be much easier to work with and won't give off that cold, industrial feel. Sherwin-Williams Mink (pictured) or Special Gray

With a new batch of more-sophisticated pastels hitting the market, people are opting for softer colors in the bedroom, says Jordan. A pale pink or coral can be fresh and feminine, with a little Audrey Hepburn style. Pink is a great option for someone who wants just a hint of color. It's beautiful in warm light. Too much pink can give a room that "Barbie's Dreamhouse" vibe. If you're going with this choice, add gray or white accents, such as the white chest under the TV, above.

Looking for a soothing place to escape at the end of the day? BEHR Paint's Director of Color Erika Woelfel suggests a deep, tropical green. This green works with light wood furniture or floors and bright bedding, says Woelfel. Greens are also ideal for enhancing a room without natural daylight. Cool colors work best in north-facing rooms that get mostly filtered light. If your space has full sun, you may find the color is washed out. BEHR Verdant Forest (pictured)
The Romantic Shade That Makes You Look Great

Reds are known to be very stimulating, Woelfel says, and many people don't like that in a bedroom. Still, if you want a strong pop of color, Woelfel recommends a burnt brick red, which is less intense and won't keep you up at night. Warmer colors—like this deep red—are more flattering to skin tones, says Woelfel. Avoid heavily saturated or neon reds, and, as with all new colors, test the biggest swatch you can before committing.

An Unexpected Look

"People are afraid black will make the bedroom look like a cave," says Jordan, "but it can actually have the opposite effect." Jordan suggests using black on the ceiling or an accent wall to evoke the spacious, infinite feel of the night sky. This couple-friendly shade can be both masculine and feminine and balances beautifully with grays or whites. Avoid pairing black with bright colors, as the effect can easily go over-the-top, says Jordan. Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black, Peppercorn or Black Fox (pictured)

This dusty aqua has become a Pinterest favorite, says Jordan. It works in just about any room, but its spa-like feel can be particularly soothing in the bedroom. Coastal shades bring the essence of nature indoors and can really brighten up an otherwise dreary space. Bright colors can overwhelm this subtle neutral, so stick with pastels, whites and grays.

Julie Richard, Ace Hardware's Design Expert, suggests a light cocoa. A down-to-earth brown with a gray tint can make for an intimate, enveloping space. This shade of brown is exceptionally versatile, and can work in just about any style of bedroom, from a contemporary loft to the most traditional colonial. One of Richard's favorite combinations is to add a few cream accents such as a large rug or an upholstered headboard similar to this one. Too much brown in a room can look drab, says Richard.

A Space That Always Feels Like Home

According to a Travelodge survey, yellow ranks second in sleep-inducing colors; Woelfel recommends a nice balanced gold between lemon yellow and brown. A toned-down gold transitions well: Its sunnier daylight shade becomes more subdued in evening light. The wrong gold can be very energetic and too bright for a bedroom. Woelfel suggests starting a couple of shades lighter than you think you want. BEHR Harvest Home (pictured)
