Dwelling Dos: Reversible Pillows

My friend the interior decorator has always held fast that you should invest in furniture for the long haul and pillows for the now. Giving away a pillow you don’t like anymore, she says, is much easier than parting with a sofa. Truer words may never have been spoken to a short-term decorator like myself.

CURRENT CRAVINGS

{for the home} Inspired by Anthropologie, created by ingenuity

photo from design sponge With a little bit of talent I could do anything, I always tell myself. But I doubt I could create anything as beautiful as Britt’s Anthropologie DIY project. She fell in love with the Curator Nightstand ($698) but not so much the price. So with spit, grit and 96 bucks she recreated the table using parts…

Dwelling Dos: Hardware

Back in college when 90% of Anthropologie’s clothing was financially out of reach for me I’d still wander into the store to check out their funky hardware. Somewhere in Fort Collins, Colorado a dresser with antique glass pulls and one heck of a paint job is floating around from Colorado State student to Colorado State student (or at least I…

Dwelling Dos

I was going to mention that Anthropologie is featuring “dwelling do”s over at their {for the home} section last week, but the only dwelling do listed was wallpaper. I thought that was kind of silly — one measly tip? But upon returning tonite I realized it’s a series and they seem to be revealing a new tip each week. Sneaky,…

The Splendor of Southern Spain

Anthropologie updated the {for your home} section of their website for Spring. I love the Andalucía collection they just unveiled! I was up in Connecticut over the weekend and noticed several pieces on display at the Westport Anthro store. A few years ago my then-guy went to Costa De La Luz and brought me back a gorgeous Andalucían pot. His…

For the home section updated

Anthropologie has updated its “For the Home” homepage (go to the website and click on {for the home} in the navbar). The featured item is the Tagliare Console Table ($398), a piece mixing different knotty wood parcels into a rustic-looking piece of home art. I have seen tables like this a lot recently. ABC Carpet & Home has had pieces…
