Our Story

Boxwood was born out of the idea that our homes should be as vibrant and colorful as the people who live in them. We offer a range of unique home decor and gifts from picture frames and candles to upcycled furniture and pillows. We also carry Annie Sloan(R) Chalk Paint(R) and conduct a number of creative workshops.

Ladies, remember tge $400+ paints I purchased from you? here is the inspiration and here is the finished result 😉 The lighting isn’t the best but it looks even prettier in person. Thanks again!
We love dogs at Boxwood!
I was in the shop this week and purchased a beautiful floral arrangement you had on display. It works perfectly in my living room and the colors match the decor as if it was custom-designed for the room! Thank you!
Thank you for all your tips with Annie’s painting.. my buffet looks awesome !!!!
