What is Indoor Stargazing?

A 5 Star Ceiling Mural is a  replica of the night sky that is invisible during the day, and appears only at night, like the real stars. Your personal night sky is skillfully applied to your ceiling using a non-toxic formula. In the daytime, your room looks absolutely the same. At night, when it’s dark, it appears as if your ceiling has been removed and you are looking up at a rich velvety black sky full of stars.

Stargazing is intuitive and natural for man. For thousands of years, mankind has fallen asleep under the stars. We don’t see many of the stars anymore. In this fast-paced world what we need now, more than ever, is the opportunity before we close our eyes at night, to simply slow down!Benefits

Your ceiling is not only beautiful and mesmerizing, it will be visible most of the night and will last a lifetime. Here are some of the benefits you may experience.

*Improved sleep. Stargazing increases alpha theta waves in your brain so you fall asleep faster into a deep sleep. Your heart rate and breathing actually slow down.

*Relationship building. Stimulates meaningful conversation and encourages bonding between parent/child, as well as siblings.

*Therapeutic for children with Autism, ADD, people with anxiety, addiction, depression, and insomnia.

*Easier Bedtime. Children are no longer afraid of the dark. Reduced use of nightlights, children and adults are eager to go to bed.

*Ridiculously Romantic. Need I say more?


A 5 Star Ceiling Stargazing Mural will set a calm mood, enhance the atmosphere, and transform your home into a haven. Going to bed will never be the same!

Meet the 5 Star Family

Leslee Martin

Star Girl

Founder, CEO, Artistic Director

 Leslee, a mother of 2 adorable children, founded 5 Star Ceilings in 2012, as a way to supplement her teaching business and family income. Shortly after beginning painting ceilings, she retired from teaching to paint star ceilings full time. Her 5-year-old daughter begs to go paint stars with her and has come along as “assistant star artist” a time or two. LaVee can be found painting her own star paintings “like mommy” in her free time. Leslee’s 3-year-old son, Grayson, currently enjoys singing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ while falling asleep under the stars each night. When we forget to charge the stars at night he asks “where are the stars?!”


Steve Martin


Steve Martin,  the father of above mentioned adorable children, joined as a Star Painter with 5 Star Ceilings in 2016 and is an active participant in creating these magical and celestial ceilings. Steve’s experience, knowledge, and passion for space and astronomy go light years back, long before the idea of either him or Leslee painting stars ceilings for a living even entered his mind.  Steve specializes in creating personalized constellations and gas clouds. The most popular being the Unicorn! When he is not painting stars he can be found spending time with his kids and watching documentaries about space.
