A Little Anthro Love



















































I love a little Anthro to get my imagination going ... to provide some inspiration...and to help me look at things in new ways!

Luckily I have one close by.

Is there anything here that excites you?

Lots of Anthro love! I went yesterday for some inspiration and got it. They took a vintage clear glass hobnail water pitcher put rocks in the bottom and then soil and planted a plant. I had been eyeing a vintage glass pitcher at my thift and I went and got it and did it!
Enjoy your week,
KarenSue

I need to go visit mine. I love the doily headboard! And the bookcovers on the chandelier? woah, and the lampshade and I LOVE those beautiful classics (have a few) and I have a tin jello mold like them. Geez, I feel better now. ;-) Sorry.

I knew that I would find something to do with all those book covers! Thanks for the picture! Wouldn't it be fun to be a decorator for Anthro?

Wonder if she has enough of them!

I just went to Anthropologie in Scottsdale yesterday and I spied a doily headboard only made different. The pipes were configured differently in sections and only some sections had lace stitched onto them. Wish I had taken a picture. The store stagers must have some sort of guide on how to stage and they just make the projects with their individual takes on them. I must admit that since I cannot afford much in that store I really go for the displays and stuff that isn't for sale for inspiration.

Anthropologie is the most amazing store! I absolutely love to walk through, it inspires me every time!

I love all the letters hanging from those towel racks, and there's only the tinest glimpse, but on that bed, looks like there's a coverlet with script writing on it. I HAVE to check that out. Oh, and the chandelier made of book covers...genius!!

wig4usc said...

Oh, yea, the doily headboard...wow, the mind that came up with that!!!

Oh Goodness Laura....it ALL excites me !! OH where do I start ? .......the coffee sacks, the chandelier, the mirrors, the displays, the letters,the soaps, the cushions and those bags....I have to see if they have those bags at our Anthro.
I saw the script bedlinen only the other day and was considering buying it, but think I will stick to my white bedlinen.
I'm off to the Anthro website now !! XXXX

Thanks for taking me along for some inspiration, Laura. I really loved the idea of doily headboard (not practical :), but I think a screen would be fantastic.

Kim Hanauer said...

I would love to follow these folks around and hear how they work it all out and make it happen..that's the fun part!your pictures give me courage to do some of the funky things that are floating around in my old head! heh heh!

Jill said...

I saw the book chandy in the one that is about 70 miles from me and fell in love with it. I only had my phone with which takes "not good" photos. So, happy to see it again here. That place just makes you happy doesn't it?! So inspiring!!

Dear Laura, so many wonderful things! This store is great!!!!!

Have a nice day,

Their lighting displays are incredible. I have a picture in my camera of the glass bottles hanging from ropes around the lights. One from a summer trip to Irvine,CA and one from Southlake, TX. They were both different and both amazing. Now the book cover chandelier is AwEsOmE. I'll have to do a recon trip and snap another picture. Anthro-love here too!

Oooh Ooohh. I have some of those little oyster baskets underneath the wooden letters but I didn't get them from Anthro. I charmed them out of a lovely elderly oyster man in the Charente Maritime 2 years ago for 10 euros. What lovely memories...

Sussie said...

I love Flea markets too and I love that bag above :)

courtney said...

OH how I love that doily headboard...if I could sew at all I would love to attempt a project like that with all the antique lace bits I have lying around!
