EMILY STARR ALFANO / founder + creative director

emily is the starr behind mStarr. her career has taken her on a journey through various industries including sports marketing, radio and jewelry design but mStarr was born following her 2011 wedding. with hard work, a little luck and an opening in the new england market for a design-focused business, mStarr grew quickly, crafting dozens of weddings and events across the country. with growth came styling jobs and eventually an expansion and focus on interior styling, something emily is particularly passionate about as she continues to update her 1830’s home, affectionately named #farmhousedialfano.

emily comes armed with experience from years spent in project management and marketing, bringing right-brain creative thinking, left-brain execution, the ability to juggle, and resourcefulness to the table. no dream is too big, no idea too far-fetched.

emily calls the boston area home and lives with her husband bill, their daughter max, and pup bruno.
