I only had a couple of free hours before my flight back on Wednesday, but I did stop in the Anthropologie store. I love what they carry, but I’m more fascinated by the way everything is styled, especially now that I have my own—very tiny—retail space (aka “my booth”). I know my 10×10 spot at the antique mall is no Anthropologie, but it’s fun to see ideas for how I could display things better.
I need to make better use of the crates I have. Suddenly, everyday items like juice glasses look lovely tumbling out of an old, rusty crate. Heck, I think Anthropologie could style bologna the right way, and I ‘d want to buy it. . .
Stacks, more layers and paper mache lemons for color. (And, look how cute those spoons are tied with twine around the cutting board.)
Beads layered on a lamp. Easy. Pretty.
Great way to bring in color and add height: use stacks of magazine with the same spine. (National Geographics?)
Mirrors—and fabric—hung on back of armoire:
Other things we (ahem, you) could DIY:
These felt orchids were everywhere. Prettier in person, I promise.
Old Reader’s Digest books cut into letters—and for $20 a pop!
Loved this bright blue paired with the (slightly) antiqued mirror. Also, see that thick rope on the table? They had used this everywhere, woven in and out of displays for texture. Smart and inexpensive!
