I’ve never had the privilege of living very close to an Anthropologie store, so whenever I have the chance to visit one I take full advantage of it. 😉 I leisurely browse the store and longingly gaze at all the gorgeous items for sale (although I typically only buy things from the clearance room!) and also gain inspiration from the creative displays and furniture. One of my dream jobs would be a Buyer for Anthropologie, and/or someone who designs their displays.
This weekend when my husband and I went to Chicago for a concert, I made sure that I could visit the Anthro store on State Street. As I walked around, I took some photos to share here- I hope you’re as inspired by them as I am!
Gold mirror = Fabulous. Dresser with mercury glass panels = Divine.
Summer brunch under a canopy? Don’t mind if I do.
Magnificent chandelier with jade(?) crystals? Yes please!
Colorful lounge area for waiting husbands…. Oh wait, mine’s shopping in another store right now…
Vintage green hutch = Love at first sight.
Why use a boring old linen closet when you can have this?!
Take a siesta on some colorful bedding below a collage of birdhouses.
A giant wall mural made out of what appears to be painted corks… artistic genius.
My husband’s back! And just a little bored while I’m wandering… j/k 😉 Almost done shopping, honey!
I ended up with a shirt, whimsical painted owl, yellow drawer knobs, wall hooks, a hair barrette, and some bling. (And totally spent all of the money I earned at my yard sale that morning..plus some.)
If you live near an Anthro, I’m totally jealous!
Are there any stores that inspire you?
