Every now and then I like to stop into to stores just for inspiration and maybe a little drooling. One of my favorite stops is Anthropologie. Not only are their products super cute and unique (even though you may need a second mortgage to purchase them if they aren't on sale) all of their displays are so fun and inspirational. So without further ado, I give you some quirky ideas from Anthro.
How neat is this wall display? It's basically made up of various staircase spindles and wooden candle sticks each painted a different way. This would look great above a sofa or in a dining room maybe mixed in with some hanging plates. Heck, even a makeshift headboard could be made from a grouping of these guys.
Here they are again chillin' on the top shelf of a hutch. I like the pops of yellow paired with that mint green.
Here's a close up so you see how simple it was to create this painted look. It doesn't even seem like they taped off their spindles (although you could to get a cleaner line). So how easy would this be to whip up one afternoon or even as a kid's project?
This is the same cut off paint technique used on the base of a white vase. Here they have it resting on what looks like was once a leg from a sofa or low table.
This is the bottom of the hutch from above. How cute are those geometric painted doors? And what's great is that if you ever get tired of it just take a razor blade and scrape off the paint.
You know I love me some house plants so this terrarium in a bottle is super neat.
These were really cool. They are slices of granite or other stones or rocks to be used as a hot plate or coaster. Oh and they were super duper heavy.
I love how anthro sets up their displays like a big ole house. Here are some place settings they had on a giant farmhouse style table. How great would that little green bowl be for ice cream? And that cobalt blue candle holder? Sweet.
Finally we have these guys. I was thisclose to walking out with them. They're hedgehog measuring cups! They stack like this or you can set each up on their own since they each have feet. How cute??
Well that's the end of this anthro tour. Hope you got some inspiration today!
