For the love of Anthro!

An Anthro store just opened near me inside The Aventura Mall, and I'm happy to report that I was able to score most of the items on my wish list. The minute I stepped in, I was so inspired by so many of the vignettes that I wanted to share some of them with you.

I know these Ostriches are a bit out of the ordinary but I found them inspiring and super cute.

This open shelf cabinet is part of what makes their design so attainable. This is super simple to recreate and it can be inexpensive if you can find a similar cabinet at your nearest thrift store. All you would need is some fabulous blue paint and voila! The perfect setting for your fabulous dishes.
I love the idea of these canisters. They were being used to display pillows but how fantastic would they look in a bathroom for towels.

I'm a huge fan of framing fabulous fabric and displaying it as art. As you can see here, I did something in a smaller scale at our home. How fantastic is this quilt? I love the idea of using it in an all white room, the perfect way to bring color into any room.

How phenomenal does this look? I love it and I want it, now. Unfortunately, the fabulous farm table underneath it is not showing on the picture.

OK, this has got to be my favorite image. I just adore the idea of having an old french armoire without the doors to display all of your favorite linens and apothecary.

I had to take a picture of this. Those mirrors are fantastic, and right underneath are cotton blossoms. How cute is that? I love the cotton blossom idea for a table setting.

I hope you all got to enjoy these images as much as I did.

Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

P.S. The City Escapes series will be back next week. If you are interested in participating in series, please send me an email.

Loved the tour, Yansy! Anthro is one of my favorites and the store here in Naples is pretty small - so it's a treat to see the highlights from your store. Have a great holiday wknd.

I have a confession: I have never been to Anthropology. There, I said it, and now I must plan a trip there because boy am I missing a lot of cool stuff!
