Anthropologie Girl

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

I'm an Anthropologie girl at heart. For some reason I don't feel like it's realistic to decorate my house that way (except for a few little touches here and there), but Anthro's ultra feminine, slightly bohemian, quirky flea market asthetic just makes my little heart go pitter patter.

Anthropologie

Meet the Gate Headboard...my favorite headboard of all time. Do I own one? No...would I like to? Quite possibly....except for that pesky $1500 to $2000 price tag. Darn that thing called money!

And then there's the Bird-Cut Armoire....hello lover. Oh the great memories we could create together...if I could scrounge up a spare $1898. Who needs to eat, right?...Oh, I that's right, my sports-playing teenage son who would eat a rhinocerous if I could lasso one up does. Hmmm...I guess it's just not meant to be, my little armoire amore.

But, isn't there something about Anthropologie that makes you picture a life of sipping coffee at french bistros, eating fresh bagettes with cream butter, and riding your bike over cobblestone roads back to your ivy covered cottage? You know...kind of like the french village life of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis...or at least what I imagine it to be.

(Aren't they adorable?)

And since I decided to go Polyvore-crazy, here are a couple more Anthro rooms for ya.

(Do you like the shoes? I just had to throw them in.)

They're stuff is just so much fun to look at. I haven't been into an Anthropologie store for a long time (none close to me), but I love clicking around on their website and dreaming. I think I'll head over there right now, in fact!

The shape of the blue chair in the top pict is fun.

Your cool friend Cheryl said...

Oh, how I adore Anthropologie!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Oh, eye candy! Haven't been into one of their stores in ages and ages. Thanks for the fun without me having to dip into my wallet. ;)

Laura said...

Anthropologie is so fantastic!! Too bad they don't have one close to me. Well...maybe its for the best. :)

Color Splash on HGTV used Anthro as an inspiration for the dining room they did this weekend! It was very modern but very cute. Love the bedroom ideas!

Krys said...

Ooo, I love me some Anthro too, but I agree with you about not decorating exactly like it. I definitely think I could wear some of the clothing styles though - especially the shoes and jewelry.

Hello AnNicole - How are you? I love these room designs you've put together. That blue chair in the first one is fab. Love the headboards too. And yes, I did spy those oh so cute red shoes! Thank you for sharing.

Blessings,

Love Anthropology especially their store displays - so creative!

Patti said...

How do you get all your cool things into Polyvore? When you find something you like do you edit it into your sets right then? Thanks for your suggestions.

I totally stumbled across your blog today and couldn't agree more about Anthropologie! It's such a great store, with vintage inspired loveliness.

Love the blog!

I just found your blog today and I like you. I wanted to share my armoire with you. I copied the anthro one you have pictured above and for a fraction of the cost got my very own. I think I spent about $150. Anyway here is my blog http://debsfreckles.blogspot.com/2008/03/mi-armoire.html

You could make something very similar to that armoire... scope scope scope for carved panels from, say, a folding screen, and keep an eye on craigslist for a paintable armoire of the right size (flat screen TVs have made them a drug on the market).
