Looks We Love: Seeing Stars

July 21, 2015 by Melissa | 0 Comments

I started thinking about stars right around July 4th.  Now, with the warm summer nights that we have had in San Francisco, I have been thinking about them again because we have actually been outdoors late enough to see stars.  The star is a symbol that resonates with young and old (perhaps because of the breadth of its symbolism, e.g. patriotism, religion and, of course, superheros) and has no gender.  While a little goes a long way, incorporating stars into your decor adds a little (sometimes figurative) sparkle.  Here are some great examples of stylish stars.

We love these two wallpapers with star motifs.  They would be adorable in a nursery, but we can also picture the second wallpaper in a not-so-serious powder room.

Is wallpaper too permanent for your liking?  How about star bedding or a hanging mirror?

If you would prefer something a little less obvious, these curtains or the Moroccan star carpet provide a more subtle nod to the motif.

Some of my personal favorites are stars that actually light up the night.  A star pendant or marquis light work just as well outdoors as they do indoors.

And last but not least, it never hurts to remind yourself that you are a star!
