before the new Anthropologie store opened last week in Toronto, I was there with professional photographer Michael Graydon to shoot the interior for the August issue. A full year ago, the news that one of our preferred U.S. shops was lastly concerning Canada rang with home & Home’s halls as well as we’ve been anticipating its arrival ever since. The store is teeming with smart stylist techniques that instantaneously produce a moment or mood. These are four of my favourites that are simple to do.
Michele Costa is the store’s uber-creative screen coordinator. She found this vintage window frame curbside in the store’s community as well as utilized it to craft this lovely diy wall art. The composing is performed in chalk. For something much more permanent, Michele suggests utilizing a paint pen.
Spools of thread discovered at goodwill ended up being a stylish embellishing hit. ideal for a dressing space or to break up a stylista’s bookshelves. Here, they’re displayed on a vintage drawer turned upside down.
For a country table centerpiece, Michele turned pop can tabs into buzzing bumble bees by very first spray painting them yellow, then looping a strip of white muslin with one of the openings for wings (a dab of hot glue holds it in place). Attaching each tab to cable that has been hand-twisted in a looping pattern makes the bees look like they’re flying around the potted herbs that act as the base.
Give spaces a sunny look by filling shapely bottles with sand as well as showing them in groups atop mantles, tables as well as shelves. Sand is sold at many hardware stores. The bottles are offered at Anthropologie for $33 to $79.
