Anthropologie Spring Displays

Kate and I went to Anthropologie in Toronto this past weekend.  While the spring displays are under construction, I still got some good Anthro inspiration.

I got some serious colour inspiration, with the oranges, turquoises, and yellows everywhere.

And some paper inspiration.

And some rope inspiration.

And some wooden spoon inspiration.

And some container inspiration.

And there was the Bangladesh connection.  I know, I know that's just how it is for me right now - there are Bangladesh connections everywhere and I couldn't help noticing the little candle with monsoon rain written on it.

After seeing all those inspiring ideas at Anthropologie, don't you just want to get out the paper and scissors and rope and start making some Anthro-inspired paper flowers and knot decorations?


  1. One of the ways I entertain myself during insomnia is to tie knots mentally - I also have the Klutz Book of Knots handy for when I get it wrong!

  2. I have never been to this store. Maybe because I have been so far from one. It looks like a great place!
    I have to check if there is one in Vancouver would be a good excuse to go plus there is an Ikea there!

  3. I've never been in one either! Love that paper wall hanging!!..

  4. Oh you are a hoot! Did the people in Anthro wonder why you were taking all the pictures? Looks like you had a great time. My favorite things from there the cabinet and door knobs. Are they in the store? I have seen them online and they are so cool. Hope you have a good week! ~Ann

  5. Looks like a fun store to visit! I really like the glasses with the little birds on them.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such an encouraging comment regarding my kitchen remodel. We just purchased the home in November and have remodeled the entire house (well, our contractor has anyway). We have been living here about 3 weeks now and yes, I am enjoying the kitchen very much. The previous owners had really let the place go so it was really bad when we bought it. I still wonder if we should have just stayed where we were at??? Too late now ;)

    I noticed in your profile that you are an SLP. I am an occupational therapist. It is always fun to find other therapists in blog land.

    I hope you are having a wonderful day!


  6. Grace,
    Thanks so much for taking me along with you to one of my favorite stores...sad thing is...we don't have here in my city.


  7. I love going in that store. I don't have one close to us for some reason. I have only been when out of town.

  8. Love the paper flowers! There's one Anthro store about 40 miles north from where I live but I've haven't made it there yet.

  9. Is that a macramé light shade in the first photo? Love the paper flowers. What a great place to visit.

  10. Hi Grace
    Such a fantastic store...I would love to follow the interior designers of those stores around for a few weeks. Imagine what you would learn. Very clever!

  11. I'm staring at all of your pictures, Picking out what I want. Looks like a fun day of shopping.

  12. I have never been to that store. Looks very interesting. I had no idea knots were so big these days! I guess I should get out more.

  13. Wouldn't that be a fun job? Just make things and decorate all day.

  14. LOL @ the Monsoon Rain candle! :D
    Thanks for posting the lovely Anthropologie spring inspiration pictures.

  15. I've been to Anthropologie in Arizona and New York but never the Toronto store. I've left both feeling really inspired and of course, with some type of purchase in hand. Thanks for the pics - I'll need to make a stop next time I'm in the area :)
