The roomies and I have been combining our different styles: B – Mid Century Modern, A- Clean & Concise, Me…random mix of park avenue chic w/some beachy influence. OK so this crazy cluster of themes has created what our friends have dubbed…The Anthropologie House.
We were pretty shocked…honestly we were thinking more along the lines of The What The Heck House, but after looking at it from an outsiders perspective and comparing it to some of the look books from the store – yeah we do kind of have an Anthro house. It’s a good mix of hip, comfy and well, us.
It started with some paint…3 cans to be exact- some taupey shades for our living room and hallway – dining room = one color: Yam by Martha Stewart – Goodness she’s a genius, the color is orangey, with a hint of yellow and makes for the PERFECT accent wall. It was risk that completely 100% paid off.
The details…see that picture?? We call that our “modern hippie” painting – $59 at HomeGoods, lamp – ikea: $29 , table – FREE off of craigs list…shelves hand made by B! We’ve stacked some driftwood – also FREE, old wine bottles, a pretty modern white bowl, again from HomeGoods – $12…
More details – scattered tea lights…a mason jar (50 cents…maybe) as a vase to hold fresh flowers- the bookend: $3.99 at Marshalls on clearance, and of course lots of books – old old books – well you remember that escapade (See Post: Accidental Antiquing).
I’ll keep updating this one as we add more – wait until you see our kitchen table : )
