Cabin Retreat

Grab your boots, a blanket, and a sweater — we’re taking a trip to the mountains, streams, and cabins of the Pacific Northwest where the evening temperatures drop down into the 40s! You’ll find everything for your getaway, as well as cabin decor, at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too.

IMG_5510

Start your journey to the mountains early in the morning and enjoy the scenery along the way. You’ll want to search for country houses with creative fences, cattle grazing alongside the two land highways, and vineyards to explore and stop in at for tastings!

IMG_5523

IMG_5514

IMG_5509

Be sure to stop at a local diner for an amazing meal and fill your bellies for all the activities in the fresh air.

IMG_5511

You’re sure to see some amazing finds for cabin decor. Search out weathered wooden farm pieces and old wagon wheels, rusted tines, and farm machinery pieces with unique architectural elements.

IMG_5517

IMG_5518

IMG_5524

Unique lamp bases and shades help to make a house a home as well as becoming a focal point for a room. Nubby handwoven pillows, pieced log cabin quilts, and fabulous patterned tapestries all become personal statements! Even a painted side table takes on character with a paste paper brush stroke pattern.

Make time for a scenic horseback ride and some time relaxing by the stream or river. If you head far enough east you may run across some time worn chapels and churches that will take your breath away.

When the weekend is up, be sure to leave nature as you found it, and also leave room for fresh huckleberry pie as you are homeward bound!

A Day at the Beach

Sunshine and record temperatures have been the norm this Spring. The soaring heat has made the rain most welcome for many of us. Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too prepare for our Annual Birthday Sale June 9-12 as well as the start of summer with great finds to take us away to the oceanside without ever leaving home!

IMG_4431_2

IMG_4425

The ocean is calling to us with the roar of the waves; beckoning us to walk barefoot in the sand.

IMG_4447

IMG_4458

Shells are all around us if we know where to look. Large conch shells, garlands and starfish, and even treasure boxes and decorative frames bring Nature into our homes. Blue Ball canning jars and Fiestaware in shades of teal and green compliment these treasures.

IMG_4454

New Year, New View

Here at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too we celebrate another year with thoughts and comments from our shoppers as we enter into 2016.

Life imitates art and art imitates life and sometimes it’s difficult to know which we are witnessing.

IMG_3247

IMG_3245_2

All things in life aren’t black and white; there are areas of grey matter that we should consider.

IMG_3218

Even a common object holds beauty if we choose to see it.

IMG_3230

To be one of many isn’t necessarily the best for all; some need to be individual, to be bright and vibrant.

IMG_3217_2

IMG_3240

Living simply requires that basic needs be met.

IMG_3227_2

Age and experience add character and beauty.

IMG_3241

A good life should be in balance.

IMG_3225

We should have respect for one another and celebrate our differences.

IMG_3220

IMG_3242_2

IMG_3222_2

If we look closely, beauty can be found in everything that surrounds us.

IMG_3228

IMG_3246

IMG_3229_2

Even those that are broken and shattered hold a beauty of their own.

IMG_3226

IMG_3231

Certain things in life are best repeated.

IMG_3236

IMG_3232_2

Create a haven for matters of the heart and meditate on these things daily.

IMG_3244

It’s a wonderful life. Enjoy the journey!

IMG_3234_2

Seasonal Contrasts

Much like the seasons change and contrast sharply one to the next, so do our homes and interiors as we shift from golden sunshine and the lengthy days of Summer to cooler temperatures mixed with rain and darkness as Fall arrives and Winter follows! Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too are filled with contrasts which draw us to certain styles and pieces.

Surface contrasts in grain, texture, hand-carvings, smooth stone, worn patinas, and shiny steels can be found in every space.

IMG_2730

IMG_2726

IMG_2736

IMG_2735

IMG_2712

IMG_2733

Antique and vintage mixed with contemporary blend effortlessly.

IMG_2720

From the dining table and pantry,

IMG_2722

IMG_2732

to the art which hangs on the walls,

IMG_2719

IMG_2734

to bringing nature indoors; it’s the thrill of the hunt that never ceases.

IMG_2727

IMG_2737

Contrasts combine to create a statement and personal style which varies greatly from one home to the next. From cabin fever…

IMG_2047

IMG_2026

IMG_2028

Recycle, repurpose, and, when necessary, throw away! A classic tin sign reflects the tidiness of Oregonians, clamshells (acquired at the coast) have become an indoor-outdoor chime, and good old rusty goodness crumpled and condensed makes a statement on the wall or bookshelf.

IMG_2041

IMG_2043

IMG_2045

Restock the kitchen pantry with the essentials of coffee, soda, pancake syrup, and local honey from your favorite farmer’s market.
