I discovered where happiness comes from: the satisfaction of a job well done and the appreciation of what is, taking pride in simple tasks, and living gratefully…Butternut would kill me if I didn’t mention evening goat walks.
Finding the luxury in simplicity does not require moving to a remote location, nor does it exclude the appreciation of the energy of bustling cities. Regardless of who you are and where you are rooted, creating moments of honesty, intention, and appreciation in life is always within reach. Whether it’s the way a morning sunrise hits the steam of your coffee or the appreciation of the life of vintage and antique pieces, the ethos of Boxwood Avenue emerges from the sum of the little moments throughout life.
I hope to create a space that shares those little moments of happiness with you. Whether that be reliving a precious memory with your grandma as you make her famous pie crust, or sew a new dress from fabric your aunt gave you. Boxwood Avenue is a place where we can come together and appreciate beautiful design, old world traditions, and slow living.
I wanted to continue nurturing my quest for meaningful living, while being creative and that’s when I discovered I was infatuated with interior design. It combined everything I loved while producing a beautiful finished project that would become the vessel for everything meaningful: conversations around the dinner table, late night reading in a cozy nook, and enjoying the sunset with loved ones.
As the interiors side of the business grew, so did my want for connection. I always wanted a brick and mortar shop and as I learned more of the world around me, I wanted to bring those experiences to others. So, I opened up the Mercantile. It has been so fun to meet everyone through the shop – some of you have been following since day one! I am so thankful. Our Boxwood journey is really just getting started, so come along for the adventure!
