Anthropologie for the home: Am I missing out?

Though most of it is quite expensive, I love Anthropologie’s home goods. In fact, the mini picture in the top right corner of this blog is currently devoted to my two favorite home pieces: the Cirrus Bedding and the Cosmina Coverlet (no longer online it seems). Every time I browse the home goods Anthro seems to have catalogue-style photos for…

RECENT PURCHASES I ♥

Gorgeous! Standing Magnifying Glass set

I simply adore the old-fashioned look of the Standing Magnifying Glass set ($68-$128). I could see these used in so many ways — placed at separate angles on a vanity for a vintage backstage dressing room look; in someone creative’s office placed askew for inspiration; in a den or library for a functional-looking decor piece. From the description it sounds…

Perusing the home goods section

Between my friends visiting from out of town and my in-town friends I hit all 3 NYC Anthropologie stores this weekend. On Saturday it was the Rockefeller Center Anthro. We were looking for small gifts — stocking stuffers, gifts for teachers and co-workers, etc. We ended up finding a treasure trove in the home goods section. The find I am…

Cooking with Anthropologie

One of my friends has a young son who is completely into cooking right now. He loves mashing dough, throwing flour into mixing bowls like magic dust and mixing recipes into an ooey gooey sticky mess. He does this all complete with dinosaur and explosion noises of course. It’s a real kick to be around. When I saw all of…

Gorgeous! Dandelion Greens Flatware

OK, wow. I can’t say I’m usually impressed by flatware but Anthropologie really won me over with their Dandelion Greens Flatware ($24). I first saw this set at a friend’s casual dinner party last week and while I admit it was a bit gauche of me I just had to know where she got them! Luckily she happily told me…

A pop of color in the bathroom

Fresh Cut Bathmat, $48 I live in a tiny studio apartment with a teeny bathroom. To make the bathroom seem larger, I’ve stuck to a white color scheme within. But after a while the white started to feel…well…clinical. So I introduced some color in slowly. A friend of mine is lucky enough to have a large bathroom (by NYC standards…

Decorating with Anthropologie: Medallion prints

Were it that Anthropologie had interior designers available to hire, I would sign up an instant. In this dream I’d also have an unlimited design budget of course! I love how their room designs have bold colors and mixed patterns and yet everything blends together seamlessly. Certainly Anthro’s design sensibility is not for the minimalist. Nor is it for the…
