Rustic Elegance: A Photo-Essay on Why I Want to Move Into Anthropologie


 Isn't it lovely? Have you been? Did it charm you as it did me?
I know it's expensive but each time I step in, I come out feeling inspired.

  2. I envy that you have an Anthropologie where you are. All I can do is drool when I see their website or their emails to me :P

  4. I have never been! I window shop online, but I don't think there's one by me. I would live there though. Everything is so pretty and soft.

  6. Do they have beds? I'm not moving in if there is no bed. I'll visit, but I won't move in.

  7. I agree! We don't have one in my state, so the only time I ever get to pop into one is when I'm in Boston. Of course, then I want to buy one of everything ;)

      The buffet with all the white dishes and jars is my favorite too. ;)

  12. Never been there, but the last shot entranced me entirely. I want to find cute cut outs like those and post them on my walls!! Wherever would you buy something like that? So cute!! :D

  13. I haven't been in this store in awhile, but I always loved it in there! I bought a few things online a few years ago- love their stuff, but going to the store is definitely an experience! Did you get anything good?

    1. Definitely!
      I'm currently debating between cups. So hard to choose.

  14. Ooooooh! I can definitely see why you want to move in there! I've never been to one. I'll have to check it out! :)

  15. Unfortunately, we haven't got Anthropologie in France! There are some stores in England though, I'll have to check them out next time I'm in London. I LOVE your pictures!

  16. ohmygosh, i would LOVE to live in an anthropologie store. truth be told, if there was one in my neighborhood i would work there for peanuts just to BE THERE ALL THE TIME.

    BTW, i have those robins egg blue latte bowls and i use them for cereal every morning; best cheapish thing i ever bought there.

    i also recently got a really sweet grapfruit/bird sugar bowl that comes with a tiny little sugar spoon. adorable!

    1. Right?! Great idea.

      Oh how fun! Cute. Are they really meant for lattes? *pondering buying one now*

      I looked up the sugar bowl. Precious!!! :)

  17. I haven't ever been in one of their stores. But several of my friends have been singing Anthropologie's praises for a long time. Now I can see why! It certainly has a quaint charm about it. Thanks for the virtual tour! I really like the blanket and throw corner. And the chairs with the writing on them. And the little spots of yellow I could pick out, as my eyes always seem to notice those first. And all the lovely books. And, and, and. It seems I could probably move in too! ;p

    1. It certainly does.

      No prob. ;)

      Yes! I love it all. The linens, soaps, decor, hair pins, perfume, knobs...
      ;)

  18. Oh, it is lovely! I haven't ever been to Anthropologie before, but it looks like it could be a fun place to wander in for awhile. I love that chair with the writing!

    1. It is. All the little details. I'm in love with that chair too!

  19. I want to live in Anthropologie too! Wish I could afford them. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great pictures! I have never been in that store but it looks really dangerous. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have never been inside one though I did look through the window once and assumed I could never afford anything in there! But I so agree....I want to live there too! I think that we have very similir home aesthetics...or at least would if money were no object! lol

    1. Well if the opportunity ever arises again, you must pop in.

      Perhaps so! I am always drooling over your pretty bedspread. ;)

  22. As a non-American, I had no idea what Anthropologie is until I saw all the Anthro-knock off crafts on Pinterest :) The measuring cups are so cute!

  25. Such gorgeousness. I would absolutely move in there too, and then have my books delivered right there.

    1. Yes! Oh and they have darling books too. Mostly decor and cooking but definitely enough to keep me busy for awhile.

  26. Gorgeous pics!! I am right there with you—every time I go in that store I want to hide out in the dressing room until closing time, Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler style, then come out and try on ALL the dresses and dance around serving tea in fancy cups. *sigh* Maybe someday....

    1. Yes! Try on all the clothes, perfume, hair barrettes, and have imaginary dinner parties.

      PS OMG you just reminded me I need that book.

  27. You know, I've never actually been in Anthropologie. I've just sort of lingered on the outside, gazed at the window displays. It's so expensive! But pretty, very pretty. There's no point tempting myself though because I can't afford the stuff!

    1. It is. But it's also really creative. I came out with all kinds of ideas for my house. :)

      You should pop in and stick to the clearance section.
