The first time I stepped into an Anthropologie I fell in love. Hardcore. True love. I think Anthro feels the same about me, so we’re going to stay together forever. The funny thing is, I like the clothes and accessories and occasionally fall for a piece, but my heart lies in the kitchen and home section. My eyes light up when I see their glassware. They are one of the first places I turn to when I want to see what is new for the season or need inspiration. (Other websites/stores I like to check out for kitchen and home items are Pier One Imports, World Market, Target and Homegoods/TJ Maxx, and of course, local thrift shops! Get out and go see what you can find for a GREAT deal!)
Last night I was in a kitchen kind of mood so I immediately jumped over to Anthro. -I go through phases, sometimes I’m feeling the bedroom, sometimes the living room, sometimes clothing only; it is as if my brain can only focus on one area at a time, but doesn’t have the patience to stay in that room for very long.- I was thinking ‘Spring Colors’ when my fingers hit the keys last night at a shameful hour. I was not disappointed. Take a look at what I was ogling:
When it comes to interior decorating, I am an “all things white” type of gal. I want white walls, white cabinets, a white “base” if you will, so that I can add in splashes of color (so that it can be changed easily and often). Currently my bedroom is all white & gold, my living area is black & white, but my kitchen… it’s a color bonanza. White walls, white cabinets, white appliances, and EVERYTHING ELSE is just as bright as I can get it. My mother and her mother each have Fiestaware in their kitchens, so I have a feeling decorating with a Rainbow Brite palate is something ingrained.
