We talk about spaces large and small on this site all the time, from powder rooms to living rooms and everywhere in between. In recent days, however—especially since last week’s big Big Bang news—we’ve been enamored with an altogether different kind of space—outer space! From oversized star charts to fabulous DIY projects like Jessica Marquez’s constellation table runner, we can’t get enough! As a nod to our newfound space infatuation (and to get y’all prepped for the stargazing days of summer), we’re going to be sharing some of our favorite constellations with you this month, starting with the lovely Orion. Happy exploring! —Max
