Anthropologie Style Inspirations

I cannot be the only one...who is in enamored with the styling of the store Anthropologie, but disappointed when I look at the price tags of their fabulous wares. Then I started seeing a trend on my social networks of Anthropologie inspired crafty projects and thought, "Once again, I know I am not alone." Other Mama's love the panache of this mall anchored store and are also put off by the expensive costs, so they decided to DIY it, and do a fantastic job at it.

Here are my favorite Anthropologie inspired crafts, please visit these artistic geniuses and dress yourself and home in dazzling style for less:

DIY Rope Bracelets (Anthropologie inspired) by Made in a Day
These rope bracelets are so simple with so much style.  What a great way to add interest to an outfit, not to mention that conversation piece accessories are always a personal favorite. Check out this DIY Rope Bracelets craft and tons of other inspiring ideas at: Made in a Day.

Atom Art Bowls (Anthropologie inspired) by Lolly Jane
I am a fan of festive bowls, bowls with character, and I love these hand decorated bowls by Lolly Jane. Imagine how much more cheerful your next scoop of chocolate ice cream will be when you are spooning it out of one of these lovely bowls.  For all the down-low on these bowls, please visit Lolly Jane.

Inventors Bell Jar Lamp (Anthropologie inspired) by Made in Crafts
This is no joke, this industrial style lamp looks so cool, and the how-to tutorial is very comprehensive, even I may give this a try.  I think this lamp would great on a side table next to a plant, what an awesome juxtaposition of nature and industry.  Check out all (and I mean all the instructions) at Made in Crafts.

Until next time....

  1. I had NO IDEA that Anthropologie offered anything other than clothes for a different target audience than me! Wow!

    The next time I'm in the city, I just might pop into one so that I can do what you do--steal, er, I mean, be inspired by the ideas and then make them myself :)

    1. I have to hit the craft store and give those bracelets a try as well...maybe add a little anchor charm to mine.

  3. Love the bowls! I can't wait to check out the tutorial. I have some ivory colored bowls I've been wanting to donate because they're so flipping heavy and take up oodles of space I don't have. Maybe I'll keep them after all and decorate them up pretty to use for food blogging posts. Thanks so much for the ideas. So glad I don't live near an Anthro store because I bet it would be way too tempting and definitely too expensive for my budget.
