With best wishes for a very merry Christmas
There are few decorative pieces I find particularly pretty and fitting for Christmas and stars of all shapes and sizes happen to be among them. I particularly love paper stars. Here are few examples of how to decorate with stars.

Story North is a brand new web-shop run by my blog friend Samantha. Samantha is half-Icelandic but living in England where she works as a interior designer, that is when she´s not busy with Story North or posting some fabulous images on her blog, Love Nordic. Samantha and I share VERY similar tastes and I practically crave every single item she has picked for Story North. Quite a lot of the products come from Scandinavia and few also from Iceland, from top designers Ingibjorg Hanna and Bility among others. I´m looking forward to see more design from Iceland on Story North.
