winter wonderland

Post image for winter wonderland

our holiday displays are now up in our stores and they are so, so beautiful… like stepping into a magical forest dusted with snow,  where trees drip with crystals and shiny trinkets catch the moonlight and twinkle like stars…

from our display team:

this year’s holiday display was inspired by vintage snowy showgirl dresses mixed in with antique silver and icy blue trinkets. we have intricately cut snowflake curtains paired with sheer glittery booti print panels – inspired by actual indian booti prints. we wanted to balance the delicate dresses and panels with organic branches and rugged cardboard gift boxes.  then to add sparkle and pops of color, we added the neon melon crystal chains to hang in groups from the ceiling.

their inspiration:

I really want to make one of those jeweled string chandeliers for my room! It is so funny how our KOP customers ask if the dresses on the wall are for sale! Though I am not surprised! I am dying to get my hands on the second one from the left! :D Display looks wonderful!

Taylor -November 15, 2010, 3:31PM

I saw these Christmas tree displays in one of your stores the other day and it reminded me of this:

Were your trees inspired by the work of Jane of All the Luck in the World?

fp julia -November 29, 2010, 4:32PM

hey heather! yes i think they probably were :) we’ve posted about that tree before!
