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.

img_8916

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

img_8909

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_8929

img_8922

img_8931

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

img_8930

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

img_8912

The function of wooden and wicker bowls and storage baskets add texture and pattern as they nest tabletop.

img_8921

img_8924

Soft faded florals cover curtains, textiles, sheets, and duvet covers and bring a romantic feel to all rooms.

img_8927

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

img_8911

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

img_8925

Cooking in the kitchen is a favorite pastime and social activity as we invite friends and family to share in conversation and the breaking of bread.

Transition

Right this way!

IMG_5909

Everything you’ll need…

IMG_5896

for a smooth transition from the warm summer sun to cool evening breezes we have at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too.

Fill your mind with new ideas on gardening. As fresh flowers fade think dried seed pods, vintage metal rolling carts, galvanized pails, polka dots, and birdhouses for the porch.

IMG_5912

IMG_5898

IMG_5895

IMG_5911

IMG_5908

Mix those florals with decorative metal shelves and silhouette mirrors and run away with a fresh look indoors.

IMG_5915

Bring the garden trellis inside and grab the bike as well. A friendly reminder to not bring dirt indoors hangs in the entry. Better yet, simply leave your shoes at the door!

IMG_5905

IMG_5906

IMG_5913

IMG_6043

Vignettes in neutrals and black and white create a calming invite for all who enter.

IMG_5897

IMG_5894

Think of unusual pieces to use as a focal point in displays for your home. Industrial headlights for longer nights, vintage advertising for the bar, or a well loved musical instrument over the mantel.

IMG_5901

IMG_5902

IMG_5904

The croquet set may be narrow enough for a windowsill that looks out at the backyard.

IMG_5917

Get a jump start on fall and hang a repurposed, distressed chalkboard by the phone for notes and messages as the family comes and goes with varied schedules.

IMG_5903

IMG_5900

Stack a few quilts nearby for longer evenings and the cool air that sweeps through the house.

Fresh Picks

From Sauvie Island to Hood River and all along the Willamette Valley berry season is coming to a close while apples, pears, and peaches are prime for picking. Join us everyday of the week from 11-6 at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too. We’ll make summer baking fun with a number of great vintage finds in all three stores. Berries never have an expiration date when turned into hampers, tablecloths, and scarves. If it’s canning jars with character you’ll find plenty; including vintage jam jars.

Grapes covering an arbor create much needed shade and allow the fruit to be harvested easily. Take a weekend to create your own mix of home-made wine or Sangria.

IMG_5696

IMG_5695

IMG_5669

Farm fresh crumble is a quick and easy option when you have limited time but want to indulge in seasonal fruits or berries. Be sure to have the freezer stocked with ice cream. Take a classic recipe for crumb topping and throw in 1/4-1/2 cup of your favorite cereal or granola for extra crunch. Served up in vintage Pyrex makes the flavor and presentation that much better.

IMG_5698

IMG_5673

IMG_5694

Fruit pies with a pierced or lattice top take a bit more time but are well worth the wait! In this house, we get anxious with the aroma and never allow proper cooling time for the pie before having a sample taste.

IMG_5677

IMG_5686

IMG_5675

IMG_5680

IMG_5691

Did you know that pie once cooled is perfect for breakfast with hot coffee or tea?

Personalize your porch with hanging banners and miniature flags. Make swags at the doorways from vintage pot holders. Take patterned quilts and throw over the existing chairs on the porch or deck for a quick update; once the party starts place the quilts on the ground out back for informal seating of small groups as the fireworks start.

Think outside the box when it comes to utilizing these pieces. Jay Hill Paintings can be out on the back cedar fence for the day as a grand backdrop; centerpieces can be wooden spools, vintage games in the colors of the day, and even a mix of Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls!
