Monochromatic Monday :: Boxwood Garland

December 12th, 2011

Christmas_Decor_Boxwood_Garland December 25th is speeding towards us, and I just realized that after today, we only have one more Monochromatic Monday before Christmas…so much holiday inspiration, so little time! Today I’m over at the Nicole Miller blog with some super sparkly & glam holiday inspo…and I couldn’t let the season pass by without giving an homage to my current obsession: boxwood garlands & wreaths. Depending on its surroundings, boxwood has the unique ability to appear traditional or modern, and there’s something about it that always makes me think of the manicured English garden of my dreams. This year I planned my entire holiday decor around these gorgeous garlands, hanging one over the front door, another around the dining room window and a third draped luxuriously across the mantle. As a result, I limited my palette for the other elements to sage, silver and snowy shades of ivory (as seen in my holiday table preview, here.) I’d love to know: do y’all use garlands in your holiday decor? If so, real or faux? Hope you’re all savoring these last 2 weeks before the big day, and if you’re looking for more inspiration, be sure to check out my other holiday boards: Precious Metals, Merry BerryCranberry SauceHaute Cocoa and Little Fir Tree

    Great pallet and yes, if I let myself loose I’d decorate the whole place with garlands (and fairy lights definitely!)

    I love to paint/draw/write on windows!! It’s very Christmassy! But if you like, you can decor your windows painting flower garlands in different colors during spring! It lloks fantastic, you should try it! 🙂

    I once had the upper half of the eiffel towee painted on a window, it looked as if I lived in Paris, just beside the tower! I may paint it again in my new apartment. 🙂

    LOVELY MONOCHROMATIC AS ALWAYS! It shows how much thought you put on creating them!

    I love this whole look, and your blog is great! Quick question– is that dress a Nicole Miller dress or is it from somewhere else? It’s gorgeous!

    @Mismatcherie – I wish I knew!! I found it from an unknown source and fell in love…but would LOVE to know where it’s from. Can anyone help?
