With Anthro (as my husband, mom and I so lovingly refer to Anthropologie). I don't remember the first time I went into this store (there are two in Atlanta) or perhaps the first time I received the beautifully styled catalog in the mail, but I do remember it was love at first sight.
I still have friends call me (who must have been living in a cave, for they haven't been in this store yet) and say, "Julie! You have got to see this store. It is soooo YOU!"
The image to the left is currently on its website. I love the sofa--a little modern since it is a shelter sofa, yet a little retro with its '70s plaid. And nesting coffee tables! Who could have thought of that! I love the styling of the web and the catalog. Very Sibella Court (go figure that I bought her book there). They are never afraid of scaring potential buyers away with mixing patterns and eras. Their creative directors must say, "more is more."
Oh, and it is a joke how much Anthro you may find in our home at any given day. Let's take the kitchen for starters:
Just in this one shot:
1. The "H" mug bought a long time ago...now filled with sharpies. (My husband is obsessed with them.)
2. The little tin buckets with french numbered enamel plates. The one behind the "H" mug is filled with scissors. Do you not always need scissors in the kitchen? All that horrible packaging. Packaging is another post.
3. The three little numbered containers (currently empty but I was in love with numbers and with black and white in the kitchen) I plan to use them for paper clips, thumbtacks and who knows whenever I get the office organized.
4. The brackets--
Okay, I probably could find a picture for every room. But here is my obsession as witnessed elsewhere:
Wishing you beauty! Julie
