About Us SATS

Hi, my name is Emilie, and I am a shopping and interiors addict... I set up Stella + the Stars in April 2015 after retraining to reinvent myself as an interior stylist with KLC School of Design in London.

So why not Emilie + the Stars, you may wonder? My daughter, called Stella, is the main inspiration behind my business. Without her arrival into my life six years ago, I probably wouldn't have quit my comfortable job in the world of corporate media and launched Stella + the Stars. 

So there you go, next time you read one of my posts or get inspired to buy something cool for your home, just mentally give Stella a virtual high-five.

After over 12 years in London, we packed all our stuff and relocated to the Middle East in 2016 and are now calling Dubai our home. 

The other brain behind our brand is Sameera, who has been at the forefront of innovative design for over 15 years.

Born in Sri-Lanka, the design maven moved to London in 2005 where she attended the Chelsea College of Arts graduating with a degree in Interior Design and Spatial Awareness.

Moving to Dubai in 2009, Sameera - inspired by her two young daughters - founded her own bespoke furniture business, Wild Child Designz, a cutting-edge children’s brand, which she sold both online and at leading UAE retailers including Level Kids and Mumzworld.

After more than four years of running her own business, Sameera was keen to extend her expertise to incorporate a wider interiors focus, and (luckily for me!) decided to join the team in early 2018. Together, we work to offer an all-inclusive solution for those in search of statement-yet-functional home interiors.


Stella + the Stars is Dubai's most colourful and fun home styling service, helping those in need of home decorating tips or inspiration to make their pad unique - no matter how deep their pockets are.

Bold, statement-y, colourful, (sometimes) crazy, Stella + the Stars' style is certainly not for the faint hearted. But we also believe you don't need to sell a limb to be able to have a beautiful space, whether it's a rental or forever home!

We're on a mission to help you inject a little bit of fabulousness into your living space, one design dilemma at a time, while keeping that 'affordable' box well and truly ticked.

So if you love neon lights, bright interiors, and secretly dream of redecorating your pad top to bottom in Tom Dixon but your budget allows only Zara Home, then you're in the right place...
