Black and White Shamrock Print




It's kind of funny how my decorating moods change throughout the years. Lately, even when it comes to holiday touches, I find that less is more and neutral is better than color. After years of a preponderance of red, even my Christmas mantel was more neutral this past year.

St. Patrick's Day is all about touches of green and there are now a few colorful shamrocks in my home to celebrate our Irish heritage. However, a print that I had put together a few years ago did undergo a change, that to my eye gives it a striking, yet subtle nod to the holiday.

The original post and free printable can be found here. You will see that I originally added some green ribbon and a few shamrocks to the frame. At the time, I loved the contrast between the black and white print and the pop of color. Now, the simple black and white print in a plain white frame, with no emblishment, gives a modern, clean feel to my mantel. A small change, but big impact.

Happy Wednesday!

  1. Very cute printable! Have a great week, Vicki!

  2. Very nice! I'm liking the neutrals too!

  3. Having a bit of the green running in my veins, I have to say I love your more neutral display!!

  4. I love this! Replace "St. Patrick" with "Notre Dame" and you could sell a million copies in the ND bookstore!

  5. Vicki this print is so cute! I love that it is done in classic black and white.
    I would love for you to share this gem of a post on Thoughts of Home on Thursday.

  6. I know what you mean about the seasonal color palettes. Years ago I would go all out staying true to the traditional holiday colors, now it seems to be a bit too much. For now more neutrals work for me. I would love for you to join us at Celebrate Your Story Link Party. Here is the link if you're able to. Have a fun day and hope to see you there!

  7. I love the printable!

    Thanks for sharing at SYC.
