Feeling Starry Eyed

Posted On: Monday, August 24, 2015


Last month I wrote about my growing love of spots and before that my love of stripes, but my first love is stars and it started all the way back in my childhood. It was so far back I can’t even remember how old I was when this obsession first started, but what I do remember is that I was always drawing them in my doodles. Then one day my bedroom was redecorated with starry wallpaper, similar to the cream pattern above and my love of stars took off and I’ve never looked back.

I like stars in all styles, but my absolute favourite if I had to choose, is the seven point star because it was the star that was on the wallpaper when I was younger. They’re like a home comfort and hold a lot of memories for me. Similar to the spots and stripes, I like neutral coloured stars as you can clash them wonderfully with other patterns, something I’m yet to try!

I’ve bought many a starry product, but I think I need to add these to my collection…
