Like a moth to a flame

  1. Sweet Nothings says:

    oh, I’m going to spend hours on the site now..I literally can just walk around the store forever!

  2. Melissa says:

    Like you I love that store and could outfit my entire apartment in it. But alas I don’t have that kind of money or that kind of space. One day I will, but thankfully their website allows us all to dream up our dream spaces!

  3. GardenDesigner says:

    I love the site too, and get almost daily emails from them!
    I was really surprised when I was reading in the magazine:”Where women create” about who their designer is… I will have to dig back in my pile to find her again. She was NOT what you would expect her to be at all!
    I too see the Anthro Girl to be like you described, when in fact her home/studio? looks like… How can I say this kindly… A disheveled artist in mourning/mess! … dark, mysteriously crazy-ness of a place!
    Not that my art studio looks any better!

    oh well, it just shows you can’t always live the fantasy… LOL

    But I still want to anyway!

  4. GracefulElegance says:

    I echo your sentiments about Anthropologie EXACTLY….I was laughing when reading your post b/c those are the same thoughts I have about Anthro aka, the cool girl. If I could have everything in that store I would…but alas, always goes back to $$! Ode to Anthro 🙂

  5. Sarah Danielle: Jeune Marie says:

    Anthro is my love. Seriously… I too am such an addict, got it from my mother who has been for years.

  6. Linda at Lime in the Coconut! says:

    Oh I am so in love with anthropologie too…The way they stage their store IS as much fun as the stuff itself! Their clothes are great too!

    I always find something in their sale room. AND always seem to bring home more latte bowls and Volcano candles each time I go (which…thankfully is not often. Too far)

    Fun post!

  7. Rachel James says:

    know what you mean about Anthro—I actually used to work there as a visual merchandiser–which is a lot of fun as all of the window items are essentially made by the visual department. And of course I couldnt resist the beautiful reproductions and the lovely clothes!

  8. Blueprint Bliss says:

    Great post. Love Anthropologie. Love. Makes me weak in the knees.

  9. Courtney says:

    ::blushing:: and ::swooning::

    I had no idea about the Open House site, but my oh my! OK I want the bath, the master bedroom’s windows and drapes, and the kid’s room beds and banners hanging from the canopies. Amazing!

  10. ...love Maegan says:

    use it only for inspiration …then find your own pieces and build from it. …because their stuff is shit and far too pricey for shit. lol.

  11. Colour Me Happy says:

    I get that same feeling when I go to the Pottery Barn, Anthropologie is not up in Vancouver unfortunately.

  12. Kitty says:

    JUST this weekend my husband’s Facebook status read, “Joel is wondering when his wife will come out of Anthropologie” Thanks for legitimizing my love of Anthro 🙂

  13. Lauren says:

    wow. have to go check it out now.. love anthropologie… I probably go weak in the knees from Oly Studio… LOVE all of their things

  14. Things That Inspire says:

    I love your blog header and the new look of your blog!

    Believe it or not, I have never purchased anything from Anthro, but I have admired their beds and mirrors. I think they have great designs.

    How did you know that was my favorite store, and apple is another shop I love. I also love books stores-
    Hermes, Tiffany and last but not least the Container store…

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
