Kitchen Inspiration

Anthropologie’s curiosities section is like revisiting someone else’s unbelievable childhood. Fabulous trinkets and patterns delight while intriguing memories are reinterpreted for the modern. I always get a good laugh out of something. I often spend a lot of time in the kitchen section, especially at Rockefeller Plaza (NYC) where they have a clubhouse of sorts set up with gadgets inside…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Present under glass

Sometimes my love of nature and the city conflict with each other. I’ve found a lot more green in NYC than I expected in the form of parks. But when it comes to my personal green thumb I’ve been suffering the touch of death. I killed a cactus — that’s pretty impressive. (And sad!) Of course now I live in…

CURRENT CRAVINGS

Buried in sleep

No matter how warm it is outside I can’t sleep unless I’m buried under layers of bedding. Quilts in particular are my favorite. I’ve had my summer bedding since I was a kid and it’s starting to show its age. So I’m on the hunt for a new set and Anthropologie has some appealing options. First is the Rosette Bedding…

Anthropologie wallpaper takes over HGTV

Room shots from “Color Splash” (top)& “Dear Genevieve“ I hope you had a lovely Easter or are enjoying a good Passover (or both). Me? I spent a rainy NYC Saturday watching home improvement shows. I was sucked in by two shows in particular that featured the same Anthropologie wallpaper. First, “Dear Genevieve” did a basement makeover that was simply Anthrotastic.…

Off the beaten path…Apartment Therapy’s Small Cool contest

screen capture from Apartment Therapy Full disclosure: I heart Apartment Therapy. Though their modern-minimal style is sometimes a bit over the top for me the site serves as inspiration for those of us who live in tiny spaces. Plus I love how founder Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan took an idea and built a successful business out of it. Kudos, sir. Each year…

A little hardware makes a nice statement

My sister was looking to snazz up some furniture she’d recently gotten, and Anthropologie was (of course!) the solution. She’d invested in Crate & Barrel’s Brighton Chifforobe and Brighton Nightstand. Both pieces are lovely but the all-white motif is kind of…boring. In progress — two knobs replaced I suggested buying new hardware. Could you get new knobs somewhere cheaper than…

Take a closer look at the City Park Wallpaper

City Park Wallpaper ($198/100 sq. feet coverage) On the home design blogs I frequent I’ve noticed that wallpaper is coming back in a major way. And not just in dining rooms or bathrooms — people are finding creative ways to use wallpaper in living rooms, bedrooms, offices or wherever there’s wall space. Since I rent wallpaper isn’t really an option.…
