Anthropologie Lanna bedding

Discount designer bedding

Lanna coral duvet set

Isn’t it great when you find something in the sale that you’ve had your eye on for a while, but couldn’t previously afford?

This striking Lanna bedding set is one example.  It was over £200 previously (ouch!), but now both the double and king size duvet sets are reduced down to just £59.95, which is a substantial saving.

The opulent looking coral duvet is made from cotton and comes with a set of two standard pillow cases. It’s available online at Anthropologie.

Fresh finds: Anthropologie frame remnants mirror

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

Anthropologie can be a great place to find stylish and creative home accessories and this mirror is no exception.

Contemporary upcycled frame mirror

Porthole mirror

The round porthole style mirror is in a frame that’s been made from remnants of other frames, creatively put together to form a new frame surround.

There are different woods, different textures and pieces of some more ornate frames all mixed together and the overall effect creates a new, quirky and distinctive looking mirror.

The frame remnants mirror measures 60cm in diameter and costs £348 from Anthropologie.

Contemporary sculpture design by Pierre Malbec

Contemporary art dog sculpture by Pierre MalbecUnique contemporary sculpture radiatorCompression contemporary French sculpture design

French sculptor, Pierre Malbec, specialises in producing one-of-a-kind sculptures and pieces of art.

Three of Pierre’s creations, which are suitable for display at home, include these metal dog, radiator and compression designs, which are all created from iron.

They’re unique, eye-catching and original and are perfect for fans of contemporary sculpture and art.

You’ll need to fall head over heels in love with them, as they don’t come cheap (plus there’s a hefty postage charge required too), but you can find these three sculptures by Pierre Malbec in stock at Anthropologie.

Anthropologie Swatch Book curtains

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Funky curtains interior design blog ideasInterior designers notebook curtains

When you’re decorating a room, and changing an interior design scheme, you’ll typically find yourself collecting together a selection of different colour and pattern swatches of fabric, wallpaper, paint or carpet. Sometimes it can be hard to whittle them down and decide on one or two firm favourites to use and it seems sad to discard the others.

That’s one of the reasons why we like these Swatch Book curtains, as they pay homage to all the lovely swatch card colours and designs you collect during an interior design project!

Designed to look like the fabric remnants and markings from a designer’s notebook, the curtains feature vertically arranged swatches of colour and pattern, interspersed with scribbled notes about the type of fabrics each swatch is made from, the sizes and costs. They look effective when viewed from a distance, but are fascinating to look at close up, as you’ve got all the notes to read.

The Swatch Book curtains are made from a mix of cotton, linen, silk and polyester and finished with a contemporary tab top. They’re available in two drop lengths – 213cm or 244cm – and are priced from £128 from Anthropologie.

Anthropologie Verdant bread bin

Decorative white bread bin biscuit jar

Decorative bread storage

This lovely Verdant bread bin is made from white clay and is decorated all over in a filigree leaf design. It’s as much a decorative piece for your kitchen as it a practical storage item.

Although it’s designed for storing bread in, it could alternatively be used as a biscuit jar.

Admittedly, this is quite pricey for a bread bin (£128, eek!) – but as an added bonus, you get two useful products in one, as the olive wood lid doubles up as a bread board.

The Verdant bread bin can be purchased from Anthropologie.

Milk bottle measuring cups from Anthropologie

China traditional milk bottle measuring cup set

Novel measuring cup set

If you’re ever looking for some unusual measuring cups, then it’s well worth having a look to see if Anthropologie have any. They’ve previously sold some novel and fun measuring cups, and they’ve done it again with this milk bottle design.

At first glance, the bone china milk bottle looks like it’s one single piece, but when you look closer you realise it’s actually made up of several smaller measuring cups, which can each be used to measure out different quantities of ingredients.

When they’re not in use, they stack together to form this single milk bottle (there’s even some silver on the top like a milk bottle lid!) which can be used for decorative purposes in your kitchen.

The milk bottle measuring cups set costs £22 from Anthropologie.

Create a feature wall with bookshelf wallpaper

Young and Battaglia wallpaper

Vintage bookshelf wallpaper

In an ideal world, I’d have wall-to-wall bookshelves in the living room (and I have no shortage of books to fill them with), but as there’s not quite room to achieve this, bookshelf wallpaper is a great alternative.

Bookshelf and book themed wallpaper has become very popular, with several designers creating book-ish wallcoverings. It’s ideal for using to create a feature wall in your home and the bookshelf design works in even the smallest spaces.

For feature walls, you could have one wall papered in the bookshelf wallpaper, use it in the alcoves either side of a fireplace to give the impression of bookshelves, or simply use a small strip or section of it on a wall to add interest and design.

The vintage bookshelf wallpaper shown above is designed by Young & Battaglia. The textured wallpaper gives the impression that your walls are lined with bookshelves and piled with stacks of books.

The wallpaper is made in England, is 55cm wide and is sold in three metre rolls. It’s available to purchase for £70 a roll from Bouf.

For a slightly different look, the same design is available in white (£70 from Studiomold).

Bookshelf wallpaper designs by Deborah Bowness

Deborah Bowness bookshelf wallpaper

Designer Deborah Bowness has also created some fantastic bookshelf design wallpaper. Her Genuine Fake Bookshelf and Original Genuine Bookshelf wallpaper designs are both very realistic and would transform a wall of your home into an instant bookcase.

One single, hand-printed drop of Deborah Bowness wallpaper costs from £169 from Caravan Style, or you can order direct from Deborah Bowness.

Tracey Kendall book wallpaper How to use book wallpaper in your home

Tracey Kendall has done away with the need for shelves in her book-themed wallpaper – instead, the paperback books are simply stacked together.

The multicoloured spines of the books not only add an element of colour into the wallpaper, but they also provide fascinating viewing, as you can’t resist looking at the book titles to see if there’s anything you’ve read or want to read (yes, it features real book titles).

The hand-screenprinted stacked paperback wallpaper costs £128 per roll from Anthropologie.

Bookshelf design wallpaper from Wallpaper Direct

Ex Libris wallpaper

For a slightly more traditional look, this Ex Libris bookshelf wallpaper is designed by Cole and Sons and forms part of their Fornasetti Collection.

The design features a library of books etched in black on white, with beige shelving. The books are nicely finished off with gold detail on the book titles – just like you’d see on old, vintage books.

The Ex Libris bookshelf wallpaper is £78 per roll from Wallpaper Direct.

Have you used bookshelf wallpaper in your home? We’d love to hear what you’ve done with it!

Anthropologie Potter’s Choice coasters and trivet

anthro-potters-choice-coasters anthro-potters-choice-trivet   

We love these fresh and bright Potter’s Choice coasters and matching trivet from Anthropologie.

The floral motif on the earthenware coasters and trivet has been handcarved. The pieces are then finished off with glossy coats of vivid green and blue shades to produce a stunning end result.

The coasters are 4″ square, each featuring a sightly different design, and cost £10.18 per set online. The trivet measures 8″ square and is priced at £8.90 online (prices in store may vary).

Anthropologie store opens in London

Nikau glass

Nikau glass

The long awaited Anthropologie home and lifestyle boutique store has finally opened the doors of its first shop in London today.

The popular American brand has opened their first shop at 158 Regent Street, with another store planned to open in King’s Road in Spring 2010. They don’t yet have a UK online store (although you can order from the US), but this is apparently in the pipeline.

The large three storey shop, with 10,000 feet of retail space, sells a wide range of ecletic home products, along with nearly 200 brands of women’s fashion.

As anyone who’s been to their US stores will know, it’s a great place to source unusual items for your home. Prices tend to vary – some of the more unusual pieces are pricey – but you can pick up bargains too.

The decorative Nikau glass, for example, is only £10.

If you’ve been to the new store, or are planning a trip, let us know what you thought of it!
