My husband and I started our Christmas shopping a couple days ago, and of course, our first stop was Anthropologie, at my request. Greeting us was the beautiful holiday window display that was just in the beginning stages a few months ago. I had a blog post in October about helping work on this display which included two of these photos. At that stage it was a swan with no wings, and cardboard cut out leaf shapes that we painted in shades of green.
I thought everyone would enjoy seeing how it all came together! I love all of the texture on the wreath that was created with the leaves and all the other additions. The swan looks like he's about to take flight right out of the window! This art installation creates a warm, yet wintery, vibe and gives the passersby a lot of details to soak in. The simplicity of the white swan focal point balances out the variety of colors and textures going on in the wreath. Also, take note of the styling of the mannequins... PERFECTION. The shirt closest to the wreath tells the woman looking in the window, "you can BE this beautiful swan, just step inside these doors!" And I did. Well done Anthropologie.
