Home Sweet Home

What makes us hunt and gather as we prepare to nest in our homes? It’s an extension of our dreams and passions as we create our personal environment. Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too offer the best selection of everything you can imagine! There’s nothing better than self-expression and an eclectic mix of found items that portray every aspect of what makes you tick.

Look back at your heritage and the details of family heirlooms that have influenced your taste in interiors.

Victorian hardware embellished with floral patterns, the asymmetry of delicate curves that balance out the top of an oak secretary, and the hard edged details and finials in old cast iron beds all have strong design elements that are rare and unique.

img_8922

img_8931

Even a bottle opener placed over a chipped and crackled pantry holds significance.

Mexican art and metal frames illustrate ornamentation at it’s finest.

Nature comes inside with forced branches of buds, nests, and moss covered branches creating still lives for the wall along with wonderful shadows as the sunlight passes through the room.

img_8923

Bold color comes in the form of collectible Hawaiian print mugs as well as a hand painted wall piece by a local artist.
