Christmas Wreaths & More: Beacon Hill Style

After Christmas last year we went to Boston and I spent a fun afternoon in Beacon Hill photographing Christmas decorations. I especially love these wreaths with the multi-colored ribbons. Look closely through the window and you'll see deer antlers. I have a feeling this home is as stylish inside as out.This would be easy to do - spray paint branches red and place in containers w/moss.

Love this creative peace sign wreath!






Even the post office gets into the act.
More branches - simple and doable.






Love the pattern on the containers outside this venerable home in Louisburg Square. Happy Monday!

What a beautiful and diverse group of decorations. Loved them all! Having a mix of styles in the same location really makes all of them seem even more stunning.

so fun, love Christmas wreaths! Actually tried to make one from some boxwood in my yard this year but did not turn out too well... Hi michelle! I am now hooked into the world of design blogs! Saw your name as Velvet and Linens recent contest judges! I love this world as an escape from my own! maybe someday I'll have a design blog too.

Love this post and Beacon Hill. It is my dream to go from shop to shop on Charles St. I am usually double parked to run into a sandwich shop headed for Logan with brown bag in hand.

Great photos! You really captured so many inspiring exteriors! One of my favorites things to do is walk around Beacon Hill at any time of year to look at the houses. It's lovely too in summer with fresh flowers in the window boxes. Thanks for sharing!

Love that first wreath of boxwood and ribbon, and I would've had to restrain myself from walking into that obviously-gorgeous home!
