Shop 52 Denver - Six: {5 Green Boxes}

Happy Monday! It's time for another Shop 52 Denver adventure! This time we're heading to Old South Pearl Street to an absolute treasure called:

5 Green Boxes!!!!

I was introduced to 5 Green Boxes by a close friend who actually lives within walking distance of this shop and the quaint little neighborhood of shops and restaurants within which it resides. Honestly, I fell in love with the shop the minute I walked in:

I could literally spend hours browsing and oohhing and aahhing over all of the candles, napkins, tea towels, pillows, baskets, rugs, clocks, frames, vases, furniture, and decorative items they display SO BEAUTIFULLY in this store! Let's take a closer look at a few things, shall we?

Lovin' the stark contrast of these funky, modern white wall hangings against the exposed brick wall (now if I only had an exposed brick wall in my house...hmmm...will have to work on that):

And how about these pillows???? A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!!!

That pillow in the photo above is my absolute FAVE! What a gorgeous piece of art! And it would look so fantastic in my living room! Just might have to go back and purchase that one!!!

5 Green Boxes also specializes in furniture, which they like to call "FUN-iture!" Isn't that cute?!?! They embellish and personalize each piece in their in-house design studio! Here's just a tiny glimpse of their amazing creations:

GORGEOUS paint colors, distressing and hardware!

(Side Note: Wouldn't those bird cages be brilliant for displaying your handmade paper crafts or photos??? And how about those painted tool boxes for storing your craft supplies??? AWESOME!!)

The stitched flowers and ruffle on this bench are so dainty and pretty.

And what a fantastic toy chest!

Love the soft, muted tones in the above piece.

And of course, I couldn't resist showing you these gorgeous papers! Perfect for wrapping presents or using as background paper on cards or scrapbook pages!

I really wanted to buy these jars (LOVE the tops of them) to store my ribbons in, but I resisted. Although, if I return to the store to purchase that pillow, these may end up in my basket as well...HA! And I thought those bird hooks were incredibly sweet!

And look at this felted cake! Super cuteness! I think it would make a really fun decorative item for a little girl's room, a craft room, a coffee shop or a boutique!

So, how did you like your mini tour of 5 Green Boxes? Isn't it fabulous? You can see more by visiting their website at! And remember to leave me a comment! At the end of January I'll be having a GIVEAWAY from one of the stores featured in my Shop 52 Denver posts! If you comment on each Shop 52 Denver post this month, then your name will be entered 5 TIMES in the random drawing!!! GOOD LUCK and thanks for stopping by!
