starry night

Over the weekend, I flew to Finland (eeeek!). It’s a trip that I planned at the beginning of the summer, both to check out design week and to support a friend whose documentary about Finland is premiering here. Today we’re taking an overnight train to Lapland to see where she filmed. It’s going to be the farthest north I’ve ever been, and I’m desperately hoping to see the northern lights. It’s hard for me to imagine that I’ll make it back here, so it feels like my one chance. Either way, I’m sure I’ll see some magical stars. Not that I needed the Lapland excuse, but it certainly inspired this star roundup. Ok, now for that overnight train. I’ll be back to tell you about the stars in a week. — Amy Azzarito

Welcome to Finland Amy! Because it’s still summer here (though already rather cold) you won’t be seeing northern lights. Should be much much much colder. I hope the weather clears out and you’ll see the starry nights. :)


My best friend is the designer of the Star Sign Pillows from Free People! So excited to see her on here!


I love the gold stars AND the little elephant pillow. Any info on its source?


Hi Mervi – Thanks for the welcome! I’ve been told by the Lapland reindeer herders I’ve been visiting that fall is actually best. In fact, we just saw them tonight! It was so exciting. Finland has been so much fun – such a beautiful country! xo Amy

Thanks, Leslie! It looks great. Glad I’m not the only one obsessed with stars!
