Anthropologie Display

You can’t go into Anthropologie without noticing their beautiful displays. Honestly, I know I just sound like a broken record from all the other design bloggers, but this place totally deserves all the acclaim. The store is packed with inspiring home design. For instance, this wall display above really caught my eye. The friend I was with (Hi, Jenn!) pointed out the pennies. Which are behind that lamp and I did an awful job photographing them. But the framed pennies were displayed to where shinny new pennies faded into completely oxidized ones. It was really beautiful.

I also loved the art work with color blocked frames. So cool and inspiring. They mixed the color blocked frames with solid ones and then also with wood. Mixing a neutral with two other colors really makes this gallery wall look complete and pulled together. Totally inspiring for some of the blank walls in my house.

Design Sponge At Home

Also, I totally caved and finally bought Design Sponge at Home. Just flipping through the first few pages and I knew that I was going home with this book. I’ve resisted buying it for so long just because, well, I’m dumb. (I’ve got other reasons but mostly those just deduce into me being dumb) Oh, and this one from Anthro says it has 16 extra pages for their customers only. I’m intrigued.

I know what I’ll be falling asleep reading tonight.
