The Second Floor of The W.H. Stark House features a layout identical to that of the First Floor. The first stop on the Second Floor reveals the charming Cypress Hall, where children’s toys and furniture are on display.
The Second Floor contains three bedrooms: the Master Bedroom and two guest rooms. The Master Bedroom is embellished with pink accents, from the curtains to the lighting. A guest bedroom features painted yellow daffodils or jonquils along the top of the wall and charms visitors with its yellow accents throughout the room. A second guest bedroom is wallpapered in shades of blue, setting an elegant tone.
The Sitting Room, which adjoins the Master Bedroom, is furnished with a chaise longue and rocking chairs, providing a glimpse into how the original owners of the House likely relaxed at the end of a day.
With its collection of miniature furniture and toys, the Cypress Hall offers a look at the W.H. Stark family’s more playful collectibles.
While the Second Floor hallway is similar to that of the First Floor in layout, it displays more personal pieces from the W.H. Stark family’s collection.
Family photographs, Bibles, a suite of Eastlake bedroom furniture, and a collection of vanity sets offer insight into the lives of the original occupants of the Master Bedroom, which is located on the Second Floor of the Stark House.
With its cozy seating and bay window overlooking the Sabine River, the Second Floor Sitting Room was a favorite retreat of the W.H. Stark family.
The Yellow Guest Bedroom enchants visitors with a cheerful palette and charming décor. From ruffled curtains to floral details, the room is filled with a variety of accents that create an inviting tone.
Originally the bedroom of H.J. Lutcher Stark during the years that he occupied the home, the Blue Bedroom was redecorated by Miriam Stark after Lutcher Stark left for The University of Texas in 1905. The room features heavily-carved mahogany furniture, which is balanced by tranquil blue curtains and blue and white wallpaper.
