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.

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

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.

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.

Painted Furnishings

When creating a personal look in your home with unique furnishings, there are several choices. You start by considering keeping the original patina or looking for an item with a fresh coat of paint or possibly a distressed finish. Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too are filled with one-of-a-kind pieces that are affordable and cover antiques and vintage and some more contemporary designs.

IMG_4270

IMG_4255

Ivory palettes are easy to intermix with existing pieces and evoke a clean fresh feel. They have a great shabby chic feel when distressed.

IMG_4263

IMG_4269

IMG_4285_2

IMG_4256

Neutrals in slates, grays, and taupes are abundant at all three Stars shops. You’ll find decorative side tables, shelving, large cabinets, benches, outdoor tables, and more! The selection is at an all time high as our dealers bring pieces in for the inside as well as outdoor rooms — for use on the porch and deck as weather gets better.

IMG_4267

IMG_4259

IMG_4262

IMG_4264

IMG_4254

Bright colors add an accent to any room and can be permanent additions or seasonal. Repeat the accent color with smaller items like pillows, vases, and artwork to bring the entire room together.

IMG_4268

IMG_4261

IMG_4258

IMG_4253

Make a statement with a wonderful whimsical piece that stands alone. This colorful chair can be a side table, be hung on a wall as a shelf, or simply be used functionally as a child’s chair.

IMG_4252

Distressed and weathered pieces show age and history and adapt beautifully with any interior.

IMG_4265

Join us every day of the week from 11AM to 6PM and search for painted furnishings to give a room a boost as well as creating additional storage and display surface.
